MOP's BOURBON BRUNCH with Graham McTavish and McTavish Spirits!

My Outlander Purgatory Presents a Bourbon Brunch with Graham McTavish and McTavish Spirits!! Join MOP’s Carol and Tracey and their VERY SPECIAL GUEST, Outlander’s own Dougal McKenzie, Graham McTavish!!! We discuss Graham’s newest venture, McTavish Spirits, and its first offering, the Warchief—a 7 year bottled-in-bond bourbon whiskey that receives big thumbs up from both the MOP lasses. Graham explains what led a Scot to want to make Kentucky-style bourbon, schools us in what makes bourbon unique, and gives some drinking tips to bourbon novices (like us!). And we wouldn’t let him get away without a little Outlander talk….what’s in store for season 7, saying goodbye to Outlander, PLUS a possible season 3 of Men in Kilts??? πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™  But that’s not all—the MOP ladies walk you through the fixing for a holiday bourbon-based cocktail, run down what they’ve been up to during Droughtlander, and MUCH MUCH MORE!!

Remember Paoli πŸ’”

...the Most Dreadful Scene I Ever beheld.

A British officer reported his impressions:

[General Grey] came to the head of the battalion and cried out "Dash on, light infantry!" and, without saying a word, the whole battalion dashed into the wood, and guided by the straggling fire of the picket, that was followed close up, we entered the camp and gave such a cheer as made the wood echo. The enemy were completely surprised; some with arms, others without, running in all directions in the greatest confusion. The light infantry bayoneted every man they came up with. The camp was immediately set on fire, and this, with the cries of the wounded formed altogether one of the most dreadful scene I ever beheld. Every man that fired was instantly put to death.

Remember Paoli πŸ’”

My first visit to the Paoli Battlefield, despite having grown up in Paoli! 🀦‍♀️
Much Thanks to Herself, Diana Gabaldon for remembering Paoli. ❤️

My Outlander Purgatory's Carol and Tracey are back to recap the latest episode of Season 7 of Outlander, the Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon's best-selling book series. Join us as we break down every moment, including why we’re called My Outlander PURGATORY in the first place; how the SAG/AFTRA/WGA strike might affect season 8; Carol’s revelation about Sinead’s version of the Outlander theme music; why Angus the Bruce (aka Angus Macfadyen) showing up as Simon Fraser was Carol’s favorite thing EVER; why we’re surprised Jamie’s “I’ll carry them” offer didn’t receive more offers; why Jamie made some questionable decisions in the woods; why we are DIGGING hot ‘80s Roger; how Jamie managed to throw an ax at redcoats without killing his own son (and why Ian with an ax later is giving Karate Kid vibes); why Show Ian is basically Jamie Jr. by now and maybe that’s a bit of a problem; why herbs heal all maladies on Outlander; why Richardson has the 18th century equivalent of the corner office (and why you might want to add Richardson to your bingo card); why spitting up movie/TV blood is a sure sign that your character is a goner; why Claire not recognizing William is a bit of a head scratcher; why the courtly William bows make Tracey weak in the knees; why we are ashamed for not noticing Bree and Roger’s fully stocked bar last week; why we are relying on Y’ALL to explain the ley line business; why Jamie must think that all this Claire rescuing is getting super old by now; why it’s surprising that Ian let someone else touch his bow; why Roger teaching the wee ones a Gaelic song put a little tear in our eye; why Claire should have just given poor Walter the full flask; why the Roger and Rob Cameron scene was like a good game of pickleball; why Ian needs to play it a little more cool when he's trying to rescue someone; why we are forgetting everything by the end of this video (we it's like midnight by this point); why we can’t be onboard with a makeout sesh that involves unbrushed teeth; why if we’re Rachel we’re Team William at this point; why we did not get why Daniel Morgan was wearing something the Bob Mackie of the 18th century designed; why we STILL hold a grudge about Jamie not wanting to know about Claire in the reunion episode from season 3; who the mystery man Roger catches might be, and MUCH MUCH MORE!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Bring on Season 7!

Alright, y'all. A new year, a new season of Outlander. (In life, all roads lead to Outlander. Remember that.) 

Admittedly, I'm no a giant fan of US Weekly's ads that pop up in my face when I'm trying to ogle Sam Heughan. But hey, they gotta pay the bills, and this article by  is pretty thorough in updating what we can expect in Season 7 of Outlander, premiering this summer! Also have to give Nicole a wee shoutout because she went to Monmouth University, an amazing institution of higher learning. (My own Wee Ian refuses to apply there because it's practically in our back yard and my-man wants to spread his wings a little.) More than a few of us know why Monmouth might be topical in an Outlander post. The rest of you who haven't read the series? You'll have to keep watching, my friends. Lordddddddd keep watching. 

“America really is in sort of turmoil. There’s revolution, and Jamie and Claire are separated,” the Waypoints author teased. “There’s also the prophecy of Jamie and Claire’s death, you know, that they’re supposed to die in a fire. There’s just so much going on.” ~Sam Heughan for US 

As you may or may not know, depending on how long you've been visiting MOP, all roads ALSO lead to the American you can imagine how stoked I am to get this show on the road. Since things started heading toward "Give me liberty or give me death", I've been waiting for this season with bated breath! Why? Umm...REMEMBER PAOLI!

If I'm honest, I'm hoping the writers/producers/directors are fans of TURN: Washington's Spies...because they did it RIGHT. Every...single...second of that series is gold. GOLD!!! (And the reason I cried at John Andre's sarcophagus at Westminster...but that's a different conversation!!) 

Another series that will get you jonesing for Revolutionary War times is Poldark. (Say it soft and it's almost like pray-ing.) le sigh...BOY do I miss Aidan Turner's bare chest. LOL I'm kindof kidding; I'm more into the courtroom scenes when Ross PolDARK is yelling at everyone before going to a hot dinner made by Demelza who, oddly enough, is probably still wearing something resembling rags.

At any rate...I wanted to let you know how excited we are for this summer, and not just because it's margarita season. I also wanted to let you know that Tracey and I will be making a video sooner rather than later...just to catch up, discuss our theories/hopes for the upcoming season, and share some altogether merriness for the new year with you fine people whom we miss so much. ❤️

RIP (or not) Lord Lovat; Simon "The Fox" Fraser

Photo Credit: Wikipedia 

It was on this day, April 9th, 1747 that the real life Simon Fraser aka Lord Lovat aka Jamie Fraser's wicked grandda...was the last person to be beheaded in the UK, due to his participation in the Jacobite Uprising of 1743. 

John Morris
Photo credit: John Morris on flickr

Apparently there was a giant crowd at the execution and a "timber stand" collapsed (a scaffolding, built to hold spectators), killing 9 people. Fraser laughed as he thought this was amusing, thus creating the phrase "laughing your head off." 

Photo Credit: The Crown Cronicles
Simon Fraser was thought to have been buried at the  Wardlaw Mausoleum, Kirkhill, Inverness.  
However in 2018, the crypt was opened and the coffin was exhumed. What did they find? The remains of a woman. They now believe he was never the Tower of London and may be buried somewhere on site.

Outlander “Temperance” Season 6 Episode 603 RECAP! My Outlander Purgatory's Carol and Tracey are back to recap the latest episode of Season 6 of Outlander, the Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon's best selling book series. Join us as we break down every moment, including how Jessica Reynolds and Alexander Vlahos need us to go to bat for them over their credit placement; why we want to be baptized by hot/mad Roger; whether or not a five year old can be trusted to not drown their baby brother; why casting Henri-Christian in “The River Wild 2” was not a good idea (and yes, we realized after the fact that this DOES happen in the books, but Germain is most definitely not a part of the shenanigans so don’t at us, bro!!!); why all is most definitely NOT WELL, Jamie; why Fergus breaks our hearts every damn day; how it’s so much easier to get a surgical appointment in the 18th century; how ether is the devil’s juice all the time, but whisky is only the devil’s juice when it’s convenient; why the possessed frog scene is one of the funniest we’ve seen; Marsali’s mad spinning skillz; how the bible verse JAMMF reads to Tom Christie reminds us of a good story about another Tom ❤️❤️❤️; which is more painful, natural childbirth or hand surgery by Claire; what might have happened if the kids opted for touching the hot poker instead of Henri-Christian; why JAMMF is the worst disciplinarian ever; why Marsali is the baddest of asses, but needs to watch out for Amy; whether Tom’s comments on Claire’s hair indicate that he likes her or that she’s the devil; why no one has thought to hook up Tom and Amy; whether something happened between Malva and Ian; why Claire needs to think about her book recommendations; whether or not JAMMF was creeping up on Malva; that awkward moment when Tom couldn’t diss liquor as the devil’s juice; how JAMMF finally redeems himself with his words to Fergus, and MUCH MUCH MORE!!
