Scotland Twells Trip 1974 [14:34]
On the heels of our recent Scotland trip I remember Gordon telling cousin Anne about some old home movies my dad took of a trip we took back in 1974 (or thereabouts). We have since had all home movies transferred to DVD and I was going through some old boxes last night and ran across them so I thought I would post the 15 minutes of another Twells visit. I think you could call it a blast from the past and there is one particular cousin who surely had her "oh we are sailing" groove on.

Fun For Less Tours British Isles with Glenn Rawson [00:31]
England is the foundation of our heritage. From it we received our language, our most endearing literature, our freedoms, our sense of humor, and our general outlook on the world. Many of us trace our individual roots to England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland. From Shakespeare to Harry Potter to CS Lewis to King Arthur and his Round Table to Beatrix Potter or Jane Austin, the culture of England continues to shape our world and define our place within it. Its heroes and villains are part of our everyday consciousness. Its castles, cottages, palaces and ancient ruins fire our imagination and haunt our thoughts. Come with us to the sceptered isle as we reminisce of everything from kings to the little people and enjoy the green wonder of Scottish highland lochs, the rocky cliffs of Ireland and the rolling hills of the English countryside and the wild beauty of Wales. Heres a partial list of our fantastic sites: Tour of London, Tower of London, Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Oxford, Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon, religious history sites, Northern Wales, Tintern Abbey, Conwy Castle, Alnwick Castle (Hogwarts), Roselyn Monastery, Edinburgh Castle, Glasgow, Scottish Highlands, Ferry to Ireland, Belfast, Ireland Coast, Dublin and more.
Gilmerton Cove [02:36]
Gilmerton Cove, Gilmerton, Edinburgh, Scotland. These caves were hand-carved from solid sandstone. Nobody knows who carved them, or why. There are several chambers, some containing tables and chairs carved out of the sandstone. Some of these show evidence of having had doors hung in the entranceway. There is evidence, mostly graffiti, of the Cove being used by the Knights Templar, the Covenanters and the Masons. It is also rumoured to have been used by the Edinburgh branch of London's Hellfire Club. In the 18th Century, it was inhabited by a blacksmith named George Paterson. Paterson is thought to be buried in one of the unexplored caves, and his ghost haunts the caves. Another of the unexplored caves is thought to stretch as far as Craigmillar Castle, a mile or so to the north east, where a similar set of caves are known to exist. The caves are also thought to have been used by witches. One of the rooms contains a sacrificial table, and a stone referred to as Jacob's Pillow - though it looks nothing like the Stone of Destiny in Edinburgh Castle. A Cove is Scots for Cave. These caves are several miles inland, and 40 metres above sea level. Entrance is via an old miners cottage on Drum Street, Gilmerton.
