    Yes - I'm still alive. I just re-read what I wrote those many years ago, and I'm suprised that most all of it still fits. Question, should I do a re-write? --Jay--

    I have found (off and on) some neat stuff on e-bay. I also have had good luck respectfully writing to people like Jerry at Stillwater and Steve at Freedom kilts or Rocky at USA Kilts. All these gentlemen will be glad to help you out.

    I've been looking, too, on-and-off. Always willing to add to my belted plaid collection... especially rustic tartans.

    The harp is a stringed musical instrument which has a number of individual strings running at an angle to its soundboard, which are plucked with the fingers. Browse our Collection lyra the harp made with Rosewood. When a person thinks about the music that comes out of Scotland, they most commonly associate the bagpipe with the nation. While the bagpipe is perhaps the most famous harp instrument to come from Scotland, the harp is actually known as the national instrument of Scotland and has been that way through most of its history. Harps are played to this day as much as bagpipes are, and if you are looking into getting a harp for yourself, you've come to the right place. At Scottish Kilt Shop, we specialize in creating high-quality harp that look every bit as beautiful as they sound. Each one of our harps is made out of gorgeous and sleek, high-quality rosewood complete with intricate carvings and 10 strings stretching across each one. These traditional harps are easy for novices and skilled players alike and are sure to outlast many performances to come.

    I was wearing a kilt in the 1940's as a boy in Scotland and so did my school friends. We all wore girls gym knickers as a matter of course. My sport was I ice skating so it was a sensible habit! Now the only thing I have done which is new is to sow in a 15 gram wheel balance weight in behind the corner of the front apron adjacent to the the silver citrine stone emblem. Just heavy enough to still let it fly up a bit - the under apron retains decency in today's PC world.

    Today this happened He is the second other kilt wearer I've seen this week, besides Tartan Tuesday of course, his first comment was "My kilt has pockets." To which I replied "My kilt has a sporran." I love it when I bump into other kilt wearers.

    It's Canada Day today, so I'm flying the old Red Ensign and wearing the Maple tartan kilt that I have. It's a lighter polyviscose with a velcro waist that I purchased with the intention of using it for outdoors and athletic activities, but it looks quite nice. Photos are from when I first purchased.

    Seven Nations is coming to Columbus GA tonight for a free outdoor concert on Broadway. What a great Saint Patrick's Day gift. I'll be there kilt and all. Starts at 6:30 pm with a traditional band before them.

    Mine's not traditional by any means, but I typically opt for the "flat cap".

    Down here the black beret is worn by our Armoured Corps, & some support units to the SAS. As I was in the navy, I never officially "earned" a beret, but when I did a stint in a "private security" team, we wore a red beret on parade & an infantry green one in the bush. I would personally never wear either black or sand, as I have close mates in those two particular regiments, but outside of that, I've seen combat in both regular AND irregular military units, & I consider I've earned the right to wear what the I like. Anyone who tells me I cant will be needing to explain their logic physically.

    Having come to X Marks 4 years after the OP here. I mentioned something similar over there and was also met with strong opposition. I didnt understand since I dont wear kilts in the traditional way at all. My wife is take it leave it on the kilt. She isnt for it, but also isnt opposed if I want to wear it. She does however LOVE the beret. I bought a black US mil spec and a tan one for use on different kilt outfit combos I plan to put together. I was in the US Army, 4th Inf Div but did not earn any berets. In fact I didnt earn anything but knees that have ached every day for the past 15 years. When I asked if I "earned" a beret my attitude more like this. "No, I didnt earn a beret, but what I did earn is this. I have a job, where I went to work and EARNED the money I used to buy my berets from a legal distributor".

    Fascinating since for the longest time the black beret was the symbol of passing through Ranger training but now the brown beret is. l personally still wear the black beret I got in college for being part of Rudders Rangers at A&M. I wear it as a remembrance of those friends who have passed on and as a reminder of my college days. I did not get to go to Ranger school as I expected due to an injury which even now all these years later is the one great regret of my life.
