Are the Hitchcocks Accented?

Brace yourselves, people. We've picked up a serious Scottish brogue since arriving on this verdant isle.

Okay, not really. Okay, not at all. Edinburgh is far too cosmopolitan to have any kind of standard accent. There are as many English-sounding accents as Scottish. But to commemorate the fine sound of the Scots, we're including a fabulous video from The Proclaimers called "Throw the R Away."

I had to listen several times to figure that out! I like Scottish accents.

Watch out! You might end up in "No Man's Land" with an accent that is not quite American and not quite Scottish. :)
