Well, elemenoh, quoting someone (who knows who)...I never met a C & Z member I didn't like!

welcome elemenoh, to this friendly forum . Maybe you could share with us some of your scottish favourites, haggis included?
I must say that I am always intrigued and amazed anew by the originality and the great imagination of some of our friend's names. I also admit that I dare to be curious about their meaning , but I dare nor ask.

No more war, more new friends with interesting "names" !

Thank you for the warm welcome Very Happy

As far as Scottish favorites go, nothing beats the fried Mars bar. (Especially since the place in town here will deliver them for free...and they throw in free ice cream as well! Oh, man.)

I tried haggis (with tatties and neeps, as per tradition!), and it's really not so bad, though I'm not a huge meat-eater. (Vegetarian haggis, though, is yummy, despite its having very little in common with real haggis.) Turns out, though, that the EEC's made some rules against the traditional preparation - they can't make it in a sheep's stomach anymore, it's now in a synthetic casing. I'm not too terribly sad I missed out on the 'real thing', though it is kind of a shame.

And my name is maybe less original and imaginative than you'd think - I was reading Ulysses, and there's a bit where one of the characters is hearing schoolkids say their alphabet, but it's spelled out kind of phonetically. It got kind of stuck in my head, and when I signed up here, I picked the string of letters (LMNO) I liked the spelled-out look of best. So really, I'm just a big copycat. Wink

elemenoh ~ what a delightful lurker Wink It's always a treat when a newcomer posts! And I agree, the collection of c n zers is quite fascinating, 'n to think we are all here together because Clotilde followed her passion. Merci often to the Paris lass.

elemenoh, a friend who is a whizz with needle/thread/sewing machine, helped me finish a cushion yesterday. I cross stitched "welcome" on fine linen..with the 'o' as a wreath. It looks gorgeous and today I will look at it and think of the welcome I send to you...

I look forward to your posts....risotto drenched perhaps
