RE: Hi!

Hello Peggy
Fordyce is a small village/parish in the county of Banffshire in the Northeast of Scotland, the Fordyce's were landowners in this area a long time ago and that is where the name comes from. There is some doubt as to the meaning of the name but it may be "southwood" another suggestion is "south-cold" The Fordyce name is associated with the Forbes clan also from the Northeast of Scotland. Not a common name in Scotland now, the Fordyce motto is "persevere" At one time I lived near the village and it is a lovely spot with some very old buildings.
Hope this is of interest to you.

RE: I love Scotland

Your post truly touched my heart, as I can identify with just how you feel. I am from New Orleans La. USA. My father was the only family that I knew on his side and often spoke of Scotland where his family was from. He was a magnificent story teller and would talk on and on for hours about his homeland , that I often felt I was there. He would get this far away look in his eyes, that said his heart was there. I feel he passed that love for where your roots are down to me, for I have those feelings also for my beloved New Orleans as much. or even more than I do for Scotland as well as lreland. I know more than likely, I will never go home due to the critical amount of crime there now, but my heart is often there- still listening to all the familar sounds of the River boats and the Cathedral bells around Jackson Square. You see when my father fell in llove with my mother, he also fell in love with another queen- in fact the queen of queens, my city of New Orleans.
Blessings n thank you for sharing your love of Scotland, I too long to one day see the place my father loved.

I miss Loch Lomond. I miss Glen Coe. I miss the snow and cold. I miss haggis..I miss the tartan everywhere..I miss so very much the accent. I am not a happy lady and I want to return to this wonderful place called Scotland which has entered my heart forever.. I cannie live with out you now.
I will try and go back at Christmas this year again. I was there for 3 months and I was so upset to leave I just cried and cried on the plane as it was taking off.
There is something that is calling me back there....don't ask me what it is.I don't know.Its the whole package..I want to meet a Scotsman perhaps one who lives in th highlands. I would just love to live there all my days. I have written a poem about Scotland which I will post next time... so this Aussie Lassie will just have to wait to go back to my beloved Scotland...the land that I love..xx


Just discovered there was a Fordyce Scotland.. and as that is my maiden name, just wondering if anyone can give me some interesting tidbits about this area.. Thanks! Peggy
