This had me rolling up with laughter. Nicked from Twitter:

Currency is not the major problem for a newly independant #Scotland. As a small, unarmed, oil rich nation, a US invasion would be my worry!

Yup. North Sea Oil. Lots of rigs off Aberdeen.

I thought we had used up nearly all the oil and that was why we are letting them go. ;)

My Tuesday garden's owner was having heavy duty heart surgery this morning. He's been in hospital for a month and the op has been put off many times but today was the day. As I was preparing to leave the news came through that the op. had gone to plan and he was in the ICU to begin his recovery. Huge sighs of relief all round :D :pray:
