It's Tartan Day!

Yippee!

My lame post today is going to be a link to a post I found very enlightening about my heritage. I'm told that my Grandfather's people were Scots-Irish from the hills of Tennessee. While I don't know much about them, I found these posts about the Scots-Irish in NC and neighboring states fascinating, and I hope you'll like them too.

Unfortunately, I can't find a family tartan although, according to this website the name dates back to the 1300s... Not a surprise, since most people think the family name is English....

I read "Scots-Irish," and the first thing I think of is Mike Myers and the "All things Scottish" bit: "There's Scotland, there's Ireland, there's the bloody sea!"
