    I am going to include a post on William Wallace - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Wallace, I am certain Nigel Tranter will have him as the subject of one of his books.

    It is uncommonly warm in Sweden just now. So much so that they have given it its own name - "Brit sommar": curious name, looked it up in my Swedish-English dictionary - it comes from Britain, where it refers to Swedish -English unseasonably warm summers as "Indian summers", I guess from the 1800s empire days. The high here has been around 20 celsius, though the nights are cold, down to +2 or so celsius.
