All the time in the world....

I just read an interesting fact: Jaermann & Stübi are now the offical clock supplier and time-keeper at the Open 2010 in St. Andrews. Apparently they created a special edition for the St. Andrews Links Course to mark the special occasion. But these watches are so expensive that their price is not known and therefore they are only available for elite group of people.
If you want to let time pass by or as the Germans say: "Einmal alle Viere haengen lassen" (which is a much better disciption) why don't you spend a long weekend hier at the Inn and enjoy the surroundings, the tranquility, the food and the comfort.

Famous faces and voices

Apparently Sean Connery played a prank on a porter of St. Andrews Uni Student's Union (see this article). He called to say that he couldn't attend an event and then said his good-bye. You can imagine how stunned he must have been.
We however have the real deal (not Sean Connery obviously) but other famous faces and voices, such as John Jorgenson who is playing tonight and tomorrow night. It will be an awsome night and we are already pretty busy. Why don't you come along if you don't have anything better to do.

How cruel!

Have you seen the article on the BBC News webpage about a cat which tipped out of a lorry in a recycling centre? Even though this might have happend by accident some poeple do this on purpose when they get bored with their animal and can no longer be bothered to look after it.
Here at the Inn however, animals are always welcome and are allowed in the bedrooms! So, if you have a dog you just can seperate from, why not chose the Inn for a holiday?

Volcano Clouds Golf Market in St Andrews

Britains airways have been closed now for three days. We all spare a thought for all the people stuck in our airports. (Guardian Article on the right)

Why not spare a thought for all the business that is not getting into the Country. We alone have lost four golf groups from, Germany, Sweden, Italy and the USA.

As a result we have loads of bedrooms doing nothing at present so UK, Scottish (even Fife) golfers take note this is the ideal opportunity for an even more affordable break in the St Andrews area of Scotland.

We have some great deals with local courses so don't delay give us a call 01334 840494 or book online nowfor Guaranteed Best Rates.

European Union

Now that's what happens when a volcano erupts in Iceland: Flights all over Europe are cancelled or disrupted as ash is drifting south-east from the volcano which is located beneath a glacier 120km East of Reykjavik. And there might be more flight interuptions on the way as the ash can take days to clear. Now that's something to look forward to!

Busy Tuesday



It was very peculiar...all staff were wondering and guessing why we were sold out on a Tuesday of all days until we found out that St. Andrews Uni was hosting an Open Day! Ahhhh...that's why!!! How did we miss that??!

Good luck to all those that applied for a place. We hope you were all successful!

Happy barbecuing!!

When going to the petrol station hurts...

Should the petrol prices continue to incease, it will be cheaper to push your car than drive it!
But, there are a couple of things you could do in the meantime to decrease your car's petrol consumption:
  • regulary check the tyre pressure, but don't over-inflate them just because you think that this will use even less fuel
  • empty your boot and remove the roof racks. Get rid of everything that you don't need in an emergency
  • plan your journey as getting lost does not only cost time but also fuel
  • stick to the speed limit as driving at 70mph can save you as much as 10% compared to drinving at 80mph (which is also illegal)
  • think ahead and be a smooth driver
  • luckily the weather here does not get too hot but still, don't drive in a fridge. Wind down the windows when you're driving slowly. At 50-60mph the drag increases so you are better off turning on the air con if you really have to
  • get in the habit of switching the engine off when your are stuck in traffic
  • next time you buy a car look for a fuel efficient version which will also result in a lower road tax

Having said all that, walking is still the most fuel saving method. And it shouldn't be too difficult in weather like today.

Beware of the ... Cat?

Apparently there is a cat that does not seem to be too keen on Posties. The culprit in this story is a 19-year old black and white cat called "Tiger" who spends about 20h a day napping. But when it comes to postmen he seems to be more than alive, allegedly pouncing on them and chasing them down the garden path. Poor posties, now they don't only need to be aware of dogs but also of cats!

Clear Conscience-nearly

For all of you who ate and enjoyed their Easter Eggs here is some reasearch that might lighten your conscience. According to an article in the Guardian those of you who indulge in a little bit (exactly 7.5 grams) of chocolate, especially the darker variety, every day are less likely to have a stroke or heart attack. Less likely by 39% to be exact! The research of the German Institute of Human Nutrition suggests that the modest consumption of chocolate had a significant effect on blood pressure. The researchers think that flavenols, substances in cocoa that boost the body's nitric oxide may contribute to a lower blood pressure and and increase in the blood flow around the brain.

But here is the word of warning, the researcher stress the MODEST intake of chocolate, as it contains lots of calories and saturated fats which are related to weight gain and high cholesterol-two risk factors for heart disease.

You just can't have it all-can you?!

Easter


Most people propably think that Easter is all about chocolate eggs, but it actually has a more serious background, but I won't bore you with that.
Most countries around the world have the egg as symbol for Easter. But also the Easter Bunnie and lilies are a vital part in many Easter celebrations around the world.
The custom of giving eggs at Easter celebrates new life. Long ago people gave gifts of eggs carved out from wood or precious stone. The first sweet eggs that were eaten were made in the last 100 years from sugar or marzipan, but with the chocolate egg so popular nowadays, these are given at Easter. In some countries parents hide the eggs or treats and the children have to go and find them and in other countries boiled eggs are decorated with paints or dyed. Another Easter tradition is to roll eggs down a hill or roll them over grass with a wooden spoon, the most famous one being at the White House in the US.

Ready, Set, GO!

The sun is coming out just in time for Easter.
Have you organised your treats and their hiding-places for your loved ones yet? Are you going for chocolate or something else this year? There seems to be a lot of debating going on at the moment regarding the size of the chocolate egg packaging. I don't know what you are thinking of this, but I think that the chocolate egg does not need to be wrapped in foil, then packed in plastic and finally put in a cardboard box. All you want to do is eat the egg, but you spend most of the time trying to get to it!
Anywaty, let's hope the weather stays nice as hunting eggs inside is definately not as much fun as outside.
