Scotland and England

Hadrian Wall built by the Romans to keep the Picts( early Scots) out of England occupied by the Romans



Thanks for your comments on the referendum, held in Scotland. You can see by the result of it, how civilized countries deal with issues like independence. If only the governments of all countries stop fighting and start listening to their people, like  in the UK, many  countries in the world,would be a lot better of. Scotland and England are a good example for the rest of the world. 

A long time ago the Scots were fighting bloody wars for their freedom , now they showed their wishes in a wise and mature way by this referendum, and they can discuss the matter like civilized people. We can say the Scots didn't lose. They deserve a lot of respect, and will eventually get what they want. Fair enough! And that goes for Ireland, Wales and other regions in the British Empire.

Hear, hear! I wish all countries could resolve their inner and outer conflicts a in a like manner, there would be no need for wars.

Yes, indeed!! I do SO agree with you and Arija!! When will the world realize there is a better way to resolve difference/conflicts than war and killing??? Great reminder, Wil, thank you!!

Thank you for pointing this out Wil, - we have had much the same situation in Canada with Separists in Quebec, and it has not always been as civilized as the Scots have been, but we have managed to stay together with mutual respect.

Wil...I haven't been by your blog in quite a while, and I am not sure why! Lovely photo! My hubby missed seeing Hadrian's Wall when he went to England many years ago, and it's on his bucket list! I never got to go (though I've been to Ireland) and would love to go as well. I have a lot of respect for the Scottish and the Irish! Hope you have been doing well. It was nice to visit again!

I thought they would vote for independence, but I can see where staying together would be a safer and more economically sound alternative.
