                This is wonderful news. It's gotta feel good when you are one year removed. I was in Scotland for a wedding in '05, and it was a blast (I actually wore a kilt, though not like a true Scottsman... imagine a Mexican wearing a kilt! ).
                My best to you and George! I'll have some Balvenie 1973 to your continued health .
