They Fall Asleep Early in Lenzie

After being awake for about 36 hours straight and dealing with crying toddlers, a barking dog and a diabetic seizure towards the back of the plane we finally arrived in Scotland.

When we got off the train and set foot in George Square we found out it turned into Philadephia.

Today was the last day of location and extras filming World War Z, which will be released sometime next year. Brad Pitt is starring but he left before we arrived. A lot of street signs of Philly were added to the streets around the square and some American cars, taxis and a bus was shipped in. Interesting stuff and this makes the film a must see.

The film in based on a book by Max Brooks, Mel's and Anne Bancroft's kid. Zombie wars. We also hit a book store, where I found Denise Mina's latest.

While walking on Buchannan Street my wife saw Colin McCredie of Taggart fame.

Another type of public/private partnership?

Had a fine day in Glasgow, wandering around in the wrong choice of footwear. Took in the street life, did some shopping and had a proper Glaswegian experience in Queen Street Station.

Weather's been cloudy, but decent. We're headed up to Glencoe today to see the site of a massacre. I'm suspecting the next time her Dad comes to Ohio we'll take him to Kent State to reciprocate.

All's well. Exploring tomorrow, a gig in the evening, Edinburgh on Sunday.

I see Vernell Bristow repeated as the Writers' Block the IWPS Championship. Congratulations!

He probably will not see his, but my son turns nine today. It would not be my night with him, but he is missed and thought of with love.
