The Telegraph today has an article about how Robert the Bruce told Edward II that he wanted peace at nearly any cost…but Edward would have to recognize him as ruler of a sovereign Scotland. Seems that “proud Edward” didn’t agree, went north, and was soundly defeated at Bannockburn. It’s a good read. Link. (Pops to new window.)
The next upcoming council meeting will be Tuesday, May 28th, at 7pm at Dublin City Pub.
All members are welcome and encouraged to attend!
And more changes are on the way! Your intrepid webmaster is switching the site over to a WordPress blog format. This will make the site easier to maintain, easier to update, and easier to read on mobile devices such as phones. I can’t do the entire change all in one go, but rest assured, most of the information on the page will be on the new site…and easier to find to boot.
If you are looking for the old site, it’s actually still here…enter haggis-iowa.com/index2.html in your browser. It should work exactly like it did before. I’ll leave all of that up until the changes are done. After that, the old site may be archived.
If you have questions, you can comment here, or email me at haggis-iowa.com with the address ‘webmaster.’
