I have to admit I had long wondered about the meaning of the word 'Hogmanay'. I still wonder about 'Hootenanny' as in 'Jools Holland's Annual Hootenanny'. Is it an actual Scottish word or just a made up one?

Don't know about the 'ivory tinkler's' word (I thought it was made up, but I could be wrong - often am, in fact!!!)
Happy New Year, VB (I notice there's a joke as your signature now - is this a 'less cynical' VB coming through ????!!!! ha ha!)

WOW!!! Your sketchbook images are amazing... I am feeling very inspired! My favorites are the long-tailed duck and the brant although they are all incredible. I think I am going to try and get out tomorrow to do some sketching. I get so tied up doing studio paintings that time flies by without getting out and do fieldwork - which is the funnest part!
Please keep posted those sketches...
