Re: Predictions for the Next Decade

I hope not! Girls/Ladies already look like a "School Bus with a Lumpy Front End" in KILTS.

Re: WarMac Pipe Chanters

The tune "Farewell to Camraw" is commemorative of ????Pipe Band who got rid of their Warmac chanters (Camraw is 'Warmac' spelled backwards) and switched to a newer chanter.
