my father had a favourite saying when having a drink - it reads
sears luckas and lang may yer lum reek - can someone 
please translate this to english and correct me if i'm wrong.
I would be most grateful.


Wabmaister: 'Sears luckas' may be 'Wha's like us?' = Who is like us? 'Lang 
may yer lum reek' is literally 'long may your chimney smoke' meaning 'live 
long and healthy'.

Cant help but feel that most of the "Ulster Scots" words are 
just bad english words written as if spoken in a bad accent. If 
you must call it a language, we should all make more of an 
effort to make it a respectable one, not the embarassment it 
currently is.

I dont mean to gurn about it. Im a Protestant from Bangor, Ive 
played the lambegs for Conlig although I havent been up in a 
while (I really should get up) anyway, I feel strongly about our 
scots culture, particularly when you look at the increase in 
the use of the Irish language and culture in parts of Belfast. 
Ive seen the USFO a brave few times and have a few US 
eXperience CD's about the place. I just feel that it is being 
used as a weapon particularly by certain politicians, against 
nationalists when more effort could be better spent promoting 
the language amongst young people particularly, 'm 17 and if 
i tried saying some of the things on the website I'd be 
laughed at.
