Will the REAL Robert the Bruce Please Stand Up

Reconstruction of the face
of Robert the Bruce
Angus MacFadyen as Robert the Bruce
in Braveheart (That wee film
Tracey has STILL yet to see!)

← How cool is this??? They have reconstructed the face of ROBERT THE  BRUCE!!!  I am such a junkie for these findings from the UK that pop up here and there...and the fact that this is about someone from SCOTTISH history??? I am verklempt!!!

OUTLANDER Mentioned on Gilmore Girls?

As some of you know from our silly MOP Videos, Tracey and I made a deal: Tracey will watch 3 seasons of Turn: Washington's Spies and I will watch  7 seasons of Gilmore Girls...along with the Gilmore Girls revival released this past Friday on Netflix.

According to Tracey, episode 2 of the Gilmore Girls revival contains none other than...


I am already going as fast as I can, having completed almost 5 seasons (of 22 episodes, each!) in about 4 weeks (don't quote me; I have to check that number. And Tracey has finished 1 season of Turn. Yey, Tracey!) But NOW, I REALLY have to finish, so I can get to the revival...and the Outlander reference!

**Hey guys, PLEASE NO SPOILERS in the comments! Thanks!

All I Want For Christmas is Jamie Fraser

OK y'all. Now that we've gotten Thanksgiving out of the way here in the states, Christmas is right around the corner. What's on you wish list?

THAT question made me do a little googling...and I found this article about Jamie Fraser's non-attainable, idealistic qualities.

You may be confused as to whether she's being snarky or silly, but I chose the latter and found this a hilarious read. :)

The Scottish Mr. Bill?

Great Scott!! It's Black Friday!

OMG Cutest article EVER about a guy from Scotland - Owen Thompson - who experienced his first Black Friday shopping day in the US.

I imagine it must look a little cray cray when everyone's a little nutty in the mall! (I am more of a shop online gal, but that's just me. LOL)

Even better - he called Thanksgiving "practice Christmas!" 😂

Happy Thanksgiving from the Ridge ❤️
