    I guess you city folks had it a lot harder than us country bumpkins during the power cuts.

    We had a log fire, a paraffin lamp which gave enough light to rival the blackpool illuminations, a camping cooker, and we rigged up our little portable black and white TV to run off a car battery.

    Sounds cosy, but we could not sit too close to the fire as in those days our two seater sofa was a blow up one from Dens Road market and our TV table was an upturned cardboard box.

    Aye - they were dark, lonely nights huddled in front of the Calor Gas heater during the power strikes, with only a crappy joke for company !

    Thankfully the joke stayed in the 70s!

    There used to be a wee joke back in the 60's/70's about why have Edinburgh Corporation Transport taken the Indian conductors off their Edinburgh to Balerno route ? Because they were eating all the Currie tickets !

    I didn't know Morrison's sold curry, guess I need to check them out!

    My dad took his stepfather's name (Tate), he was originally a Rackley which is very English.

    Welcome from me too down under in NZ.

    I had a Currie and a Morrison as teachers, and a good friend who was a Tate. So lots of Scottish connections with those names.

    Hey all!

    Look forward to the interaction here! I am part Scottish (mostly English and Colombian, oh well) and love Scottish culture and interests.

    My Scottish (or possibly) Scottish families are Curry & Morrison.
