"My Favorite Islands" Jennyjump79's Profile

If you want to know the truth, it all started with the chocolate. After months of scheming with vacationing friends and begging British companies to airmail me less-than-supermarket-sized packages of specific chocolate bars, I just decided to go over and get them myself.
And while I was over there, I figured it might be nice to visit a few cities, detour to Ireland, spend a day or two at the beach, run rampant between plays and parties at the Edinburgh festivals, hop on and off several boats, trains, buses and airplanes, eat new foods, meet new people and spend as little time in the airless hostels as possible.

As for the chocolate? Gone. Melted. Who'd have thought we'd have two weeks of record-breakingly hot, sunny days? Not that I'm complaining... (I bought it all at the airconditioned airport on the way home!)

    Jenyjump. Re; Alleged Earl of Morton's grave - Greyfriars
    I think you are mistaken. This effigy commemorates John Bayne of Pitcairlie 1620-1681. His wife Eupham Aikman got permission from the then Edinburgh Town Council to have this mausoleum erected. John Bayne was a Writer to the Signet. He is on record as having given charitable donations to his local church for the benefit of the poor in addition to funding bursaries for students of Divinity both at St Andrews University and Edinburgh University.

    If you agree with me and are satisfied with this information it would be good if you could amend the errors in your web article. PS John Bayne is somebody’s relative. Best not to call him ‘creepiest’ or ‘scary’.
