    In my newly re-elevated state to trusted member I ask a question hoping that I might receive a trustworthy answer.
    What is the charm of Edinburgh gentlemen? My grandmother was captivated by one and now I see Golach gathering a gaggle of gleeful girls to the great Sunday quiz. On the 14th we had 500 women breathless over the dashing Dr.Szin'z Valentine'z Day message.

    Is there a limit to the number who can take part in the quiz? Am I still registered?

    Ahhhh, I too fell for the charms of an Edinburgh Gentleman many (not too many ) years ago, I believe it is a certain aloofness they have, or was it afoolness they have ?.......Trish.

    Canuck, sorry to tell you I am just a plain Caithness boyagee, Thursa born an bred, who met a lassie from Leith, and fell in love and settled in Auld Reekie, but you may get extra points on Sunday if you keep up the charm

    Thanks golach, I think I am beginning to discover some of the finer points of playing in the quiz match.

    On a serious note, is "boyagee" a word? Does it mean anything more than "boy"? weeboyagee's user name makes sense now. Thanks.

    Canuck, Biyagees or boyagees and Lassigies are old Caithness words for Boys and Girls not sure of the right spelling

    I hope to be in attendance for the quiz, I will try not to be distracted this time.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Thanks. It sounds like a Norse influence rather than a Gaelic one.
    Next question: in pronouncing it where does the emphasis go?

    See you on Sunday then Rheghead.

    Ooooh Golach - how could I resist then ?? But I'll sit next to Canuck in case you get grumpy - us lassigies must stick together. Won't be the same without Connie though. See you all Sunday.

    Moira - I'll save you a seat. Are you the one who brings the cake to these quiz events? I will bring along some glasses of fruit. This quiz is becoming a ceilgh. Golach, do you yet sense that you are loosing some control?

    Caoran - Thank you. Also, I love your signature. It was a favorite expression of my grandmother's (the Glasgow one, not the Szinszinatti one who married my Edinburgh grandfather.)

    Can anyone join in the quiz? What categories do you usually have? What level of knowledge is required (i.e. am I gonna make a prat of mesel )?
