My nom de plume

It's January, it's Ayr, ergo it must be Robert Burns [January 25, 1759 – July 21, 1796]

With considerable self-control I've managed so far not to put any 'Burns' photographs up on the site and I've only included (I think) one reference to him, but that now changes.

My nom de plume comes, of course, from the poem "Tam o'Shanter"
(Auld Ayr, wham ne'er a town surpasses,
For honest men and bonie lasses)

and under the circumstances expect more than a few pictures of, and cross-references to, the Bard in the forthcoming days.
