January 25, 1759 - Another year, another oil related banner. Slâinte Mhath & Happy Burns Night to one and all!

254 years to the day that the Bard of Ayrshire was born, those of Scottish ancestry across the globe will be sipping Scotch whisky, tucking into the "Great chieftain o' the puddin-race" (haggis) and reeling off some of Rabbie Burns’s choice verses.

Suffice it to say that our Scottish contingent in Aberdeen will be forgiven for painting the Grey City red this evening and way into Saturday morning, with many a "bouncin heid" to come.
