And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

A Highland Coo and her calf wandering down an empty road, Argyll and the Isles, Scotland.
I lived in the land of the Heeland Coo for quite some time and yes, they are cool. The land itself has that 'ancient' feel about it and I can't put it into words, but I enjoyed the experience.ReplyDelete
Ancient is a good description of the feel. We visited our ancestral clan castle, Caerlaverock, and I remember telling my daughter that when Columbus discovered America that castle was 250 years old!ReplyDelete
Having been to the "Outer Hebrides" 3 or 4 times over the past 40 years this brings back fond memories.ReplyDelete
Having lived on the Mainland British Isles for a number of years I can say I prefer the North Carolina winters.
