The Falls of Rogie 8 x 32 Reel Marian Anderson & her SDB Dancers Choice 1
We were very sorry that the Ceilidh dance on Friday, October 29, 2021 had to be cancelled. There was so much doubt about “dancing” and although we had approval from the BC Ministry of Health we felt we were perhaps stretching the rules too far. It was decided to be safe and cancel the dance.
We are now planning on re-starting the Ceilidh dances with the last one scheduled for 2021 – Friday, November 26 – at the Scottish Cultural Centre, 8886 Hudson Street, Vancouver. I really hope we can get together then but this will still be subject to Provincial guidelines etc. so check your e-mails & the website for any updates. You can also phone the Scottish Cultural Centre Monday – Friday between 10 am and 3 pm – 604-263-9911.
All those attending will have to have a BC authorized vaccination passport showing you have had two jabs and masks will be mandatory to enter the building and must be worn in the common areas such as corridors and washrooms. We will be taking your names & contact info so you can be reached in the unlikely event that there is an outbreak.
The dance, and future dances, will be held at the Scottish Cultural Centre, 8886 Hudson Street, Vancouver but, there is a slight change of time. The class will be held in the large hall from 7;00 – 7:45 then we will all exit to give the band a chance for a sound check etc. and the dance will run from 8:00 – 10:30 with live music by Calanais. Alison will continue to be your teacher/caller so you are guaranteed to have a great evening. No change to the admission – still $15 with students $10.
The 2021/22 season dances are scheduled as follows:-
November 26, 2021
January 28, 2022
Mark your calendars now!
Let us all celebrate that we are getting back together for dancing and fun again. Any questions? please contact me – email@example.com

Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, was one of the greatest political sages ever known.
1. Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither works.
4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
5. Always drink upstream from the herd.
6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.
8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.
9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
10. If you’re riding’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.
11. Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier’n puttin’ it back.
12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral: When you’re full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

I thought it was time to have a Gaelic song:-
ONLY NEW GUINEA HAS THESE BIRDS LIVING IN THE DEEP RAINFORESTS. IT HAS
TAKEN YEARS TO TRACK THESE BIRDS AND STUDY THEIR EXISTENCE, WHY DO THEY ONLY EXIST IN NEW GUINEA
AND NO WHERE ELSE?

The wise one answered, “Definitely Parkinson’s.

An old man lay sprawled across three entire seats in the movie theater. When the usher came by and noticed this, he whispered to the old man, “Sorry sir, but you’re only allowed one seat.”
The old man groaned but didn’t budge.
The usher became more impatient. “Sir, if you don’t get up from there I’m going to have to call the manager.”
Once again, the old man just groaned.
The usher marched briskly back up the aisle, and in a moment he returned with the manager. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move the old disheveled man, but with no success. Finally they summoned the police.
The officer surveyed the situation briefly then asked, “All right buddy what’s your name?”
“Fred,” the old man moaned.
“Where ya from, Fred?” asked the police officer.
With terrible pain in his voice, and without moving a muscle, Fred replied, “The balcony.”
