Update on our activities…

It has been a while since I last updated the blog.  We have continued to be busy and have seen some successes.  One of the young adults we have been working with have accepted employment.  We continue to have people come into the centre for us to review their CV, guide them in the employer interview process, and conduct the Work Choice Profile.  We are preparing to teach our first Career Workshop on the 27th of July and will be going to Ireland during the first week of August.

Carolyn’s brother and his wife arrived in Scotland on Tuesday early afternoon.  Paul is presenting a medical paper at a conference at Edinburgh University.  We picked them up from the airport and they are staying with us while they are in Edinburgh.  The University campus where the conference is held is only about 2 miles from our flat.

Tuesday we rode the bus into Edinburgh to keep them moving to help them adjust to the time change.  We walked through the old town and dinner and got back to the flat about 9:45 p.m. 

I’ve attached a few more pictures from our walk Tuesday evening.  We will be spending some time with Paul & Karen through the weekend and I'll have more pictures next week.

This is an actual working clock that is decorated with live flowers.  The theme this year is the centennial of the Edinburgh Zoo.  The City has been doing this clock each year.  I saw this when I was in Edinburgh as a young man...many years ago.

This is the Heart of Midlothian.  It is a place where public executions took place in the 16th century. 
It is a heart-shaped mosaic, formed in coloured granite bricks, built into the pavement near the West Door of St Giles High Kirk in the High Street section of the Royal Mile.   It originally was at the door of the prison.

This house is in the middle of the park on Princes Street.  I don't think anyone lives there but it is maintained as part of the park.
