Yes, it's always interesting. Have caught up with Thursday and Friday.

 

Have been trying to figure out the difference between ch = ck sound and ch = Scottish ch sound. It's very subtle.

CK is produced when the tongue is pressed firmly against the back teeth and the tip is sort of dropped down from the roof of the mouth without actually having been touching it.

The Scottish ch has the tongue in a similar position but not as tightly against the teeth and the tongue is kept still and straight with the breath sort of forced over the tongue.

 

Don't know if that'll help any 'non-Scot' suddenly be able to produce our .ch. sound, but it is the best description I could come-up with.

Can you contain yourself for 4 months? It's usually the end of May.

Thanks EFFT

Mr Y describes our ch sound as β€œclearing your throat”

You ought to hear him say Lochwinnoch or Auchtermuchty.

In my back garden where I have my hanging bird feeders, some of them are hanging in trees. The pigeons can’t get to them so they have come up with an ingenious solution. They flap their wings until seeds fall out of the feeders, then pick them up off the ground  

Way to go Moonies pigeons . I’ve got pigeons and doves in my garden and although I have a low bird table , as well as the hanging ones they still managed to hover and pinch stuff
