Hi, my name is Cheryl Brown and I live in Scotland, United Kingdom. I am married to my lovely husband David, we have a daughter Hayley who is 23 and twin boys Gavin and Euan who are now 19. We have recently got a puppy named Jake who is only 17 weeks old and a cat called Tootsie who is now a year old. Jake is a cross breed called a malshi (maltese/shih tzu). He is just a ball of fluff.

Hi Cheryl,

Bonnie Scotland eh! as you can see I am a Burns, born in OZ!

I hope Tootsie the cat, is not a male who thinks he is female?

I thank you for the follow and it's a pleasure to meet you.
I wish you success in all aspects of life.

Thank you Brad, do you have Scottish connections though.

No Tootsie is very much a female but I sometimes wonder if her and Jake are doing role reversals lol.

You are welcome and it's a pleasure to meet you too. Best wishes and great success also in all aspects of life. xx

I was born in Australia and don't know much about my father's side which is Scottish.
My father's father left him when he was 18 months old.
Don't care to find out what or who he is. I know what he is! Lol
Best wishes also

I have my brother and his family living in Brisbane, my cousin and her family in Sydney and an uncle in Bondi, Sydney and there are quite a few people here in WA scattered about Australia.

I don't blame you for not wanting to know who or where he is if he did that. xx

Good afternoon Cheryl,

How are Tootsie and Jake? I enjoy the company of Cindy, my Rothweiler Lady, old Missu, naughty Sasha and little Jasmin. Last year Shugar came with Michael from the US. Michael is my better half and you can see him on my WA post, refugees Welcome.
I always tell the new people I meet here in case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, some amazing documents there.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

Regards, Taetske

Hi Taetske, good afternoon to you too. Both Tootsie and Jake are doing well and love running about together. When I take Jake out for a walk, Tootsie loves to come with us and follows us at the back. At the back of our house there is a big patch of grass and they play chase there, it's funny to watch but all the neighbours think that Jake is chasing some random cat, they don't realise that she is our cat and they are best friends. Sounds like your hands are full as well. Cats are so independent so we are honoured if Tootsie decides to come and sit on our laps.She really took a shine to one of my boys and will sit in his arms and give him cuddles.

Jake on the other hand loves to cuddle into you when you are sat on the couch and he follows everywhere when ever you move but he is so cute. There is a really good image of them both in my google+ plus account.

Hope you are having fun in your journey here at WA and everything is working out ok for you. xx

I hope you are enjoying your time here and doing well. I see you have pets! My site is about cat health and nutrition but the supplements are made for dogs too. I love that we can chose a niche in a subject we really love!

Hi Cheryl, Thank you for the follow and nice to meet you here on WA.

You're welcome Carol, I have never been to Crieff but if I ever do will certainly go and visit the Tearoom as it sounds lovely. My brother and his family live in Brisbane, they emigrated from Glasgow to Brisbane in 2006.

Look forward to getting to know you better and best wishes for your journey here at WA. xx

Hello again, Cheryl. My mother's side of the family came from Glasgow and the cotton and linen mills, and my father's side came from Peebles and Edinburgh.
Please visit the Tearoom if you go to Crieff, they converted an old church with a lot of work and it is worth a coffee to see it! Tell them I sent you haha!

I certainly will Carol. We are only about 30 mins away from Peebles and 45 mins away from Edinburgh. xx

Thank you for following me, I hail from New Scotland (Nova Scotia, Canada). My family emigrated from Scotland hundreds of years ago but have retained a strong link to the Scottish culture and traditions which is alive and vital in Nova Scotia.

Hi Cheryl. Your training re adsense has been so helpful but I keep getting a message saying my site is being reviewed. For months now and I can't figure out how to get past that. I was accepted in Jan. then goofy me changed my theme and I think I forgot to put it back in so did it again but same message.

Hi Cheryl,
Thank you for returning my follow. I visited Scotland back in 1987/88 when I traveled to the UK to see my relatives there. Didn't see a lot of it but one day will return to see more. I only got to see Edinburgh and Glasgow for a night, stayed in Inverness for a couple of days and did a train trip where I could see the Highlands, so I definitely need to go back to see more. Wishing you much success.

Hello Cheryl a fellow Scot and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

If you do get stuck then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me so thank you for the follow and I will follow you as well.

Enjoy your day.

I have lived in Scotland all my life and never moved out off it although in my younger days I did work all over the place.
Mainly up north on the big Estates for the Aristocracy.
Now I'm in Auld Reekie and intend to stay here.
Enjoy your evening.

That's good to know. I have been the same Robert and never will leave. I stay in Penicuik now but I originally come from a small mining village about 10 miles from Edinburgh which is called Rosewell. I really don't expect you to have heard of it though lol. xx

I know Rosewell very well Cheryl and in fact my grandparents and parents and an uncle and cousins have all lived there.
As far as I know there is still one cousin living there today.

OMG, I never for a minute thought you would know where it was never mind having family from the village. What are their names as my dad was born and brought up in Rosewell and he still lives there now? He will probably know them. xx

Robert-A Premium
My grandparents are dead now as is my father.
They all worked on the farms
One of them was Goorlaw and the other Gortonlee (think I've spelled them right lol)
My mother worked in Rosslynlee. That was when there was still a train station over the back of Rosewell.
My Grandparents were Cockburns and my uncle was their son.
My parents were called Aitchison and one of my uncles lived down the road in Bonnyrigg.
My cousin is a Cockburn
Reply
Chezbrown Premium
I do know of the Cockburns, what is your cousins first name? Not sure about your parents but my dad would maybe have known them though. What were their first names so I can ask him and I will let you know. My dad's name is Peter McGauley. xx

Hi Cheryl,

I loved reading your profile. My grandmother grew up in the UK,
and I love the language. I, of course, speak the American English language....being from the State of New York. I live in an area about 65 miles north of NYC, and we have many farms in the area.

Anyway, It looks like you are doing well. Good rank, and writing plenty of Posts.

I wish you every success.

Thank you Mike, there are a few others here too that have Scottish connections. I love New York, we were there in 2012 for Thanksgiving as I wanted to see the Macy's thanksgiving day parade. We also went to the Metlife twice to see the Jets first and then the Giants. I did a blog at Thanksgiving on our trip to New York.

Thanks for the follow and same to yourself. Xx

Are you Scottish? I`m half and the half is `Menzies ` clan Menzies. As a child was, every summer, taken to the Highlands
I do love Scotland but not the weather and midges ! lol
Good luck to you earning soon..

Hi and yes I am Scottish through and through.I stay 10 miles outside Edinburgh. The Highlands are lovely, especially the scenery but agree the only downside is the weather as we are never guaranteed to get what they forecast and can have the four seasons in one day. The Highlands would be a nightmare for the midges lol. Where do you stay now? xx

Chez, you slipped through my fingers somehow. When I respond to people's comments I usually go to their profiles page and read about them and connect. I just saw another response to your post and realised I hadn't done this. So now I am.

I really enjoyed Scotland when I visited way back in the dim, dark past. Went all the way up and on to the Orkneys.

Tootsie is a great name for a cat if she is a floozy like our Katie. She always flaunts her stuff. No dog as no fences.

Try get your younger son to look at an additional occupancy. I have Project managed engineering contracts and building contracts and I can tell you bricklaying is an arduous job. He might like an alternative to fall back on.

And now I will keep in touch with you.

I neep help. So I'm trying to find keywords using Jaaxy and it's quite difficult. I've been researching quite extensively. My niche is 'Print Dresses' (so dresses with prints on them) and the difficulty is that everything I search relates back to general dresses (cocktail, midi, long, with sleeves etc) if I even put the word 'print' or 'printed' in it, the search results become pretty dismal and I can't refine my searches but it's supposed to relate back to my 'print dresses' niche. The whole aspect of my website is that the dresses are specifically meant to be 'printed'. Any help?

Oh my! I love Danielle Steel! Nice to meet another fan! I'm also a very avid reader.

I also have 2 little fur-balls of my own, named Mimi and Jumper, both cats. The house is so lively with them present, playing around and fighting at times. Jumper is just as his name suggests. Always too excited and bumping into things while running around. Mimi is more of the sassy and quiet type. She likes her sleep and gives you attitude when you accidentally bump into her. Each has their own personalities and it's amazing how as a pet-parent, you will learn to tell them apart, lol.

Wishing you much success!
