I'm Back Ravenclaw!

I have returned from a fantastic 10 days in Scotland. Thanks fellow Ravenclaws for picking up the slack for me when I was gone. After a good night's sleep to reset my body clock, I'm rested and able to help move Ravenclaw into first place!

I did see the steam engine and viaduct that were the inspiration for Hogwarts Express and the school that MAY have been the inspiration for Hogwarts. Our guide on the City of the Dead tour through Grayfriar's Kirkyard late at night said the school was the inspiration but my daughter, who used to work for Warner Brothers in Consumer Products, she doesn't think that is true. She worked exclusively on the first 4 Harry Potter movies and is a Harry Potter encyclopedia! (Our little secret weapon, Ravenclaw!)

Welcome home, I hope you will be posting on your blog about your trip. I'm from Glasgow but now live in PA, looking forward to seeing and hearing where you went and what you saw. Hope the weather behaved itself.
