Oh Dougal, Dougal, Dougal...
I enjoyed your entry on "The Sons of Sheffield"; I really did; however I found it quite facinating that you were quite so emphatic over the point that the word "Daughters" be left out; then, I took a second look at the entries, and all became clear; perhaps your women aren't much to write home about? Or... write away from home about?
NOT the case for my home state. Our women, it would seem, kick your women's...well you know.
First though, I know how you men get when you are left out or made to wait, so first let me share some of the wonderful men that have come from my native soil...
