No, not Royal Troon, but a few places you may like to visit:
First, the ASP Motherlode where you can find out about all my fellow pipe suckers. They have been good enough to publish
my biograpy and a couple of my anecdotes in the Classic Posts section. A diverting pastime is to scan through the assorted
Bios and decide who you would least like to be cast adrift with in an open boat in the South China Seas !

Next, what I may modestly call a "tribute site", but one with a serious academic purpose too. I'll let the originator
speak for himself - further comment from me is superfluous !
As many of you know we have formed a Ted Woodley Study Group with the stated purpose of "Finding meaning in things Woodlean."

The study group will delve more deeply into Mr. Woodley, of Label and Labeling Technology fame, who is the

with his important work on the great tapestry, he assures us that he will try to "post some more stories, occasionally."
In the meantime I have posted a diagram that should be of assistance in understanding the relationships that Mr.
Woodley is depicting in his
Finally, a few "Classic Posts" from ASP. When I joined the group I browsed through many past discussions and came upon
some that were striking: some made me chuckle, some made me sigh wistfully, and some were downright infuriating ! But all
made me think - and so I include a few here in tribute to that happy band of brothers who gather to share a pipe and a yarn
in our on-line study.
I salute you all. Smoke on.
