Can anyone from Scotland help me think up some Scottish names for my new Shetaland Sheepdog puppies? You could name them after one of the Shetland Islands. The main ones are called "yell" "unst" "fetlar" "papa" "whalsay" "mousa" "fair isle" and "mainland". ( I wouldnt recommend mainland) Lerwick is the main town in the Shetlands and could be a good dog name. If you wanted something very shetlandic you could go for "Jarl" after the viking warriors who ruled Shetland or "Helly" after "up helly ah" the big shetlandic fire festival.
Will Shetland and Orkney get their independence from Scotland? Good point, thanks for reminding me.

What would it mean for the rest of the UK if Scotland became fully independent? Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil. One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!

"Mid-autumn Festival" and "Moon Festival", Which is better known in English-speaking world? Today is the Mid-autumn Festival of China and I read an article of a Taiwanese scholar telling that his research finds Moon Festival is more better known to English speakers than Mid-autumn Festival, a coined phrase by Chinese, because some authoritative dicitionaries have the entry of the former but not of the latter. But I want to tell him that in our English textbook co-authored by Chinese and English native authors, we get only Mid-autumn Festival and never knows there is a name as "Moon Festival", perhaps it is a holiday of Indians living in Peru or Venezuela.
Where can I see Shetland ponies on Unst? I will be spending a couple days on Unst on the Shetland Islands next year. My wife is very keen on seeing some Shetland ponies, and I am wondering how to go about this.My research seems to indicate that Unst is a good place for this. Furthermore it seems that they are roaming freely and one can find them grazing at the roadsides. Now, by randomly looking through some Google Streetview, all I can find is a lot of sheep.So my question is, how do I go about to find Shetland ponies on Unst? Is there a high probability of us finding them at the roadside without looking for them or are there specific places (farms, parks) where one would have to go to find them?
Affordable yacht holiday around Cook Islands / Pacific Islands Does anyone know any affordable options for some form of yacht / boat holiday around the Cook Islands or other Pacific Islands?
