Re: Flat F question.

Re: Yanny or Laurel?

As I understand it, there is no word "Yanny". The recorded word is "Laurel" but it is heard as "Yanny" by some folks.

Re: new style mount

MacLellan's? These style mounts always looked like cream biscuits (i.e. cookies) to me. Whimsical.

Re: College of Piping Gone - What about the tune books?

Rick, out of curiosity I had a quick look at the Aransas Pass island - it's really flat and open! They must hear your pipes from quite a long way away especially on a quiet evening if you played...

Re: Overseas travel with bagpipes

Apparently duct/gaffer tapes and cable ties are proscribed items because they can be used as restraints. But electrical tape - I think the TSA person is being overly cautious.

Re: Glencoe?

Re: Kilt, pleat to Sett or Stripe?

Is this an example of the above?

Re: Kilt, pleat to Sett or Stripe?

Stripes for me. I think it gives the kilt a more interesting look, in fact two looks - the front will be different from the back. And if you and/or your kiltmaker is very creative in the design, you...
