... pointed out the sites as we left the city on our way to our first stop at the Scottish Wool Center in Aberfoyle. This was a rest stop, snack, shop, etc. Again, we were early because of the bicycle race, so we had to wait a while for the store to open. We walked around taking pictures of the various sheep.

... economy doesn’t
seem to me to be doing very well.
Although the papers report a slow recovery from the economic crisis of
the past decade, the social disparities seem to be widening. A recent Office for National Statistics
