An Open Letter to CBI Scotland director Iain McMillan, and David Watt director of the Institute of directors in Scotland:


I run my own business as does Jim (precision machinist and goldsmith), Josh (top end computer installations), Monica (picture framing and leather crafts), Murdo (carpenter and stockman), Sam (slater; on and offshore scaffolding), Katie, Marian, Susannah, Fraser (Illuminati Winds).

The HIE and Scottish Enterprise have never done anything more than waste our time.

Forensic Accountant Niall Aslem warned that attending Scottish Enterprise Tayside's Business Awareness Week would make me a gibbering wreck, but on the last morning a Tayport Finn took me aside: "Remember 3 words, Jim.      Suomi, Sisu, Sibelius."

Saint Andrew's Day


1) It was like winning the World Cup when Finns first heard Sibelius' First Symphony. In this glorious scottish summer its power has never diminished.

2) Electric Sun Verified !


3) 28/10/09 : Illuminati Winds played Invergordon Academy. They play at Lochaber Music for All, Fort William, Friday 1st October 2010, 7.30 p.m. Be there !

"I was blown away completely," says Space Physicist Neil Murphy for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena.
