Inuksuk on Islay

An Inuksuk is a stone landmark or cairn built by humans, used by the Inuit and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. These structures are found from Alaska to Greenland and as you can see, also on Islay at Bruichladdich. The word Inuksuk means "something which acts for or performs the function of a person" and historically they may have been used for navigation or as a point of reference (see wikipedia for more info). Martine Nouet sent me this beautiful picture :-)

The Maggie

Buy The Maggie from Amazon The Maggie is one of Ealing studios lesser known comedies. It is however a 'gem' in the true sense of the word. The film has everything, humour, tragedy, pathos, romance. A wily old skipper of a Western Isles 'Puffer' and his motley crew lead all who come into contact with them a fine old time!
