man, that does seem mighty crowded, but probably no less so than Glasgow (where I live now).

Bute is 4miles by 15miles, and is home to around 7,500

Conceptually I've always been drawn to islands, never had a chance to live on one... don't you like, have to be born on one or something? How did you guys come to be islanders?

I was born there. My parents moved there for my father's work. Most of the people moving to the island tend to be retiral or in the oil industry, or they work for IBM across the water in Spango Valley (man i love the name of that valley )

I think i was very fortunate growing up on an island, so much freedom, nothing to worry about, most people knew who i was, which was a bit of a problem, but helpful in times of need. Its a bit different these days though, lot more hard drugs there, which is a shame to be sure

Same the world over with the drugs. Definitely something we are going to have to work out.

Seems everywhere I look children have less protection than I did 50 years ago.... also something humanity will have to work on...

to be honest, i think the "war against drugs" is a lost cause. The amount of drugs they cease doesnt touch supply. But thats a whole other thread!

reading over my last post on this thread, i sound like an old man, im only 22 fgs lol

We lost when we decided to lock everyone up who has a different pharmacologist.

We lost when we stopped warning our citizens of the dangers and became a far worse danger to them.

Here's a quote you'll like, I did and do":O}

"youth is no more a barrier to wisdom than age is a guarantor of it."

Well im back from my little juant down the road to home an I took a couple of pics with my phone.

First 2 pics are pretty self explanitory, 3rd pic is me being very intoxicated at the same time as taking those pics. The pics are sunrise at around 5am, maybe a bit earlier... times are a bit sketchy at best

I do have other pics taken with a proper camera, but I didnt have time to get them on to disk to get them here... so i'll post them at a later date

LOL! I've looked worse at 5 a.m.

I've never ventured up as far as Scotland. I'll have to have a holiday/exploration there one day. My mother's parents used to enjoy going to the highlands and islands for their holidays.

Nice unspoilt scenery.

What's the sea like for swimming? Coldish or very cold?

That day we actually spent some time in the sea. Its not too bad at this time of year, was a bit cold when you first put feet in, but other than that, its pretty good. The island is warmed directly by the Gulf Stream, so we have palm trees growing on the island quite easily (outdoors that is)

there is no place like home, tis true. I can't imagine calling anywhere else "home" with such affection and longing. Good thing about it is, its only 45min train journey, then a 35min boat trip away... kinda pricey with the car

I suppose it's that I've lived the life of a wander, but such places as your home always call out to me and I know them though my longing for a home...

Cherish yours, it's what all men long for, even the wanders...":O}
