Is there a bar in the site hut? Or can this be it?

... Laphroaig Quarter Cask Single Malt

make mine a double... happy memories of working in Finlaggan on Islay and cask whiskey on tap... ... but then I find the drouth... the terrible drouth (thats a mouth like a herd of goats have sucked the moisture out of your tongue and emptied their bladders at the same time)
see also http://literalbarrage.org/blog/archives/...ay-drouth/

aaar... crimpeline... designed to build up more static than a dynamo and cause sweating in places where sweating is not encouraged.

I did have a kipper tie once... but ... it nearly had my eye out on a windy day...

another... don't mind if I do...

Shall we go out and groove :face-approve:

Thanks for that web-link... Scottish slang words. Brilliant! Will come in very useful for when I'm reading Iain Banks novels

I'll have another double!

I feel faint. I wasn't aware that Crimplene was slang for low-budget pron! (deliberately re-spelled to confuse the bots, because they can't spell, right?)

Make mine a double of anything that has more alcohol than flavourings.

I resent this definition, I have never been to Scotland. Oh, wait, I went to Glasgow once about 12 years ago....

Can those of us caught up in the stampede to purchase high-vis kilts earlier in the year skip the crimplene shirts? Kipper ties should work out ok with them though :face-approve:

Well! Isn't this cosy! Laphroaig...NOW you're talking...have an intravenous drip here somehwere from my last advanced First Aid course...I suppose the smokers have to stand outside though?...heyho

Remember tweeds, pipes, LASHINGS of coudoroy...checked shirts and rolled up sleeves...always been a jeans person; think white tie is perhaps a little over the required dress code, but can oblige if required and that is now required in the New Age Archaeology (well, New Age to me anyway!)

Very much like the sound of hi-vis kilts. (And I thought The Prodigy started that one? Well, you live an learn.)

I was always a hat specialist, so can't really comment about hair. The yellow wooly hat with the long, droopy green pom pom (always clashed nicely with the issue orange waterproof...) and a nice turn up in front to hold my 6H pencils...

Now isn't this a very jolly place to be?

I remember a friends daughter coming round (aged about 7) and telling us she was studying history - they were doing the 1960's!

I was seeing a girl in Uni who couldn't belive that people where treated so badly in the 1990's Pole tax riots, she showed me a video clip of that man being run over by a horse.
i don't think i am that old but i was suprized she didn't know

I would like am pint of Rev James if the drinks are being get in and a shot of Scapa but ill pay the extra
Archaeology is the peeping Tom of the sciences It is the sandbox of men who care not where they are going; they merely want to know where everyone else has been.

What about a sort of Digger's 'Regimental' tie in a distinctive orange and yellow hi-vis stripe?

How's about a metal tie-pin or, better still, a badge of the BAJRFed badger face? (Lot's of B's in that sentence... could be a new tongue-twister). Just a basic model with the stare-me-out badger, or even a delux model with the swirly-surround? Could be an ice breaker on-site and at archaeologist parties. Badge® of alliegance?
