You'd better no' get any ideas about stealing ma sheep, Moss Trooper. They're the only things that offer any entertainment on those long, cold, lonely winter nights.


1 sheep, 2 sheep, 3 sheep, 4... zzzzzzz




Meriadoc raised up his steel bonnet and lookit,

His hand grasped the sword with a nervous embrace;

Oh, welcome, brave foemen,

On earth there are no men

More gallant to meet in the fray or the cache.

Little know you of the hearts I have hidden here;

Little know you of our moss trooper's might;

Naefearjustbeer true,

Pooter and Silverfox too,*

Gentle in manner, but lions in fight.


* Naefearjustbeer, Pooter and Silverfox may not support my views but their names do fit well into the verse above. I hope they don't mind.

I know my history of King Æhelfrith of Bernician, who when he invaded the neighbouring kingdom of Deira in 604 became the first king of Northumberland. St. Abbs is named after his daughter Saint Æbbe.

St Æbbe? Was that the one with the site of the monastary on Kirk Hill?

I appeciate that the term Northerners (As far as us soft bellied prawn cocktail eating Southerners are concerned) applies to anthing above the Watford Gap Services on the M1.


But perhaps we should phrase a cache bash in Scotland as the Extreme Nothern where they eat haggis cache bash in future ;-). I respect the proud heritage of the extreme North of our Island and also appreciate that you Scots do not like to be too closely associated with the Wine/Lager quaffing Southerners (or Newcastle Ale quaffing slightly Southerners). Lets face it we are all on the same Island. It's just a bit more scenic (and cold) where you are.






LASSITUDE- (noun) Tiredness and apathy: a state of weariness accompanied by listlessness or apathy[15th century. Via French from Latin lassitudo , from lassus 'weary'.]

I think I could handle a trip to Carlise Castle like "Kinmont Willie". However please don't hold me prisoner in Whitehaven, the place is a depressing dump. icon_eek.gif


However you would have to be an English Geocaching official, Moss Trooper, if you want to take me prisoner. icon_wink.gif


I am sure Pooter, Silverfox and other Scottish Cachers would come to my rescue. I hope they make enough noise to suggest their number are huge.

Thanks for the offer of support, if a cross border dispute results in my imprisonment, naefearjustbeer.


We should really meet up in Edinburgh like our little buddies.

Okay I give up you will have to tell me what it means icon_smile.gif


BY the way.. Have you noticed that with out moderators how threads tend to start on quite a serious note and go from that to total rubbish..


One man's rubbish is another mans treasure... this thread has been light hearted throughout which makes a pleasant change these days.

I noticed Silverfox was serving up Girlie beer to our little buddies, but didn't want to criticism him while Dougal was still in his care. icon_wink.gif


However I am sure Silverfox was only acclimatising Dougal and Hedgie for the hardships ahead, and that he drinks, manly, ale (80’) normally. They're both now in the land where urine passes for beer.

Isnt nice to sit down and read a decent post on the forum Everybody having a good bit of banter and generally enjoying themselves throwing insults in jest (I hope) As to Pooters we picture thing I met him doing a cache once and he was dressed like that I honestly thought it was a picture of himself out caching on a wet Scottish day As for the amount of caches in Scotland we go for QUALITY not quantity

Finding your caches - Losing my marbles.


Why do you think I have set him loose on a worldwide beerfest icon_eek.gif. I can manage the fridge myself without discovering the pesky hog has emptyed it himself through the night. Once he has calmed down a bit and matured he can come home and share the fridge with me icon_smile.gif

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then

I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of

their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of

work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, It is better

that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and

worry about my liver."

And saving the best for last ....


As explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers:


One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to

his buddy Norm. Here's how it went:

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as

fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest

and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection

is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the

whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. "

"In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the

slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain

cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells,

making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always

feel smarter after a few beers."
