Graeme - ideas, rants, opinions, collections of links, and writings on various topics, loosely organized in a hierarchical structure.

Ian and Blanche Story - The story of Eion's parents, which Eion researched quite a few years ago on a visit to Australia.
Enjoying Little Restaurants in France - Eion and Jean's guidebook in which they share their experiences and advice.
Clan Macrae History in Scotland from the 15th to 19th centuries, from the public domain Clan Book, which Graeme "webified".
