Maybe I should have said PS22 and Andy Grammer. Either way I can't stop playing this beautiful music video. Those voices!
In English 'The Hillswick Wedding'. A folk tale told admirably by Shetlander Marjolein Robertson. Although I found this quite a sad story I really enjoyed it and have listened to it twice. Have saved it to listen for a third time.
A 'trow' in the story is a 'troll'.
Just found this video of our local and only town of Lerwick. Very well produced and informative with good historical value. The title of this post comes from one of the comments below the video. I found the comment sweet and amusing. Really worth watching and shows Lerwick at its best on a lovely summers day. Makes me want to visit and I live here. 😀
My friend, Elizabeth Atia, is ace at cooking and baking. She has her own blog called Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary - Food and Travel Blog. There's a link to her blog on my main page or here.
Below is a video of the making of a Triple Lamb Crown, with Chris Wright (butcher) Elizabeth and guests in the Bod of Nesbister, Shetland. Beautifully filmed by Keiba Clubb.
The Bod also provides self catering accommodation.

Sometimes (most times) I get annoyed with pop up advertisements on Facebook but this video was one that hooked me. This was partly due to the subject of bipolar disorder which runs in the family and also because of my interest in photography.
Not everyone is a photography enthusiast, or able to travel worldwide for various reasons, but to me it is all about distraction. Having anxiety I find that even small distractions help to get me into a mode of concentration. Photography provides my engrossment.
.....but it gets around.

First on the list actually and a worthwhile visit if you come to Shetland. If you're into archaeology, it's your dream site.
I am so super excited about this! It's the last in the 'Jimmy Perez' series so I hope you can get to view it at some point. Starting on 12th February in the UK.
The music adds an extra dimension to the already wonderful video.
