Happy Burns Night

Greetings, good people...
I wanted to wish you all a wonderful Burns day. It is the 250th anniversary of the bards birth and today should be spent in the company of friends and strangers alike. So here I am. Tonight take a minute before the fire, before the hearth, raise a glass and cheer the bard. Enjoy!
