"Whiskey in the Jar" by Metallica

Two weeks ago we visited friends at Aberlour on the River Spey. This area is famous for its Whisky making with many distilleries in the area. Needless to say we stopped off at the Aberlour Distillery for a wee dram or two during our stay. Hence the music by Metallica although they are singing about American whiskey!

The weather was good with lots of sunshine.

Here are a few photos of the weekend.

"In a Big Country" by Big Country

Credit Crunch crimes

We have all "tightening our belts" recently mainly due to the fear of where to put your well earned money. I saw this on Yahoo News this morning and wondered that there must be an awful lot of LARGE people in the UK who are keen to loose a few kilograms but cannot afford to eat less! -- if you know what I mean... It certainly is bizar as Sarah Modlock writes in her article.

Here is what she writes:

"Even more bizarrely, the latest 'must-have' for shoplifters is Slim Fast shakes. Yes, really. The £7 six packs of the meal replacement drinks have been security-tagged after disappearing en masse from supermarket shelves."

Here are the Crimes that are on the increase:
Supermarket theft, Employee fraud,Allotment theft, Car insurance fraud, Petrol Diesel theft, Mortgage fraud, Travel insurance fraud & Burglaries.

So be careful and don't be conned.
