That's my favourite, too.
About the rest, in my response to your private message (May 23, 2018) I had already told you that I make an incredible effort to write in English. Talking and listening to the English language even more, practically an impossible mission.
After Dan makes the telecons accessible on the site, I review the telecons in Youtube with the subtitles. So I can read the speeches that I did not understand.
So now I know that Dan asked me if I visited Scotland, but I did not understand.
However my answer is: I never went to Scotland.
About the name McAngus, I hope you will be satisfied here.
During the telecon I tried to say that it is complicated to explain the origin of McAngus.
In fact it derives from two completely different causes.
The first cause (the easy one) is a great love for Scotland since I was a child: books, stories, knights, castles, pipes and kilts.
The second, a very complex word game that requires a long explanation, but I see here there is enough space.
You English say: What is your name?
We Italians say: Come ti chiami? (literal translation: how do you call yourself?)
Your answer is: My name is ....
We answer: M
hiamo .... (literal translation: I call myself ....).
So we found the "M" and the "c" and the "Mc" is complete!
Let's go on.
My name is Augusto (an attribute of the Roman emperors); it derives from the Latin word "augere
" which means to increase, to augment, to enrich, etc.
If you change "u" in "n" from aU
gusto to aN
gusto you get: restricted, narrow, poky. In practice, the opposite.
The step is short from angusto to Angus.
Also, when I chose this username, a page under construction of the Clan McAngus (including tartan) existed on the web. After a while it disappeared. I did not have time to save that page on my computer. Today I know that the original name of the Clan McAngus was McAngjoy.
Do you think it was easy to explain all this? Let me know!
Oooops! I forgot: if it can help you, the Italian number of my shoes is 42.
I wonder if Robert can invent some devilry for Zoom so that, during the telecons, we deaf can read what you are saying.
