Today is officially Bagpipe Appreciation Day ! This instrument is not appreciated by some but there are some pretty cool bagpipe players out there & I know of at least one- my very own brother.

Another one for the Dear Gord tribute site. For more on this important cancer fundraising & awareness project go here
