Good bye to 2015

Islay Fun in stencil

So there we are, it's New Year's Eve 2015. Another year coming to an end. Thought I write a quick post here to close out the year.

Haven't blogged here as much as I used to for various reasons. Felt I've ‘lost my mojo’ a little bit at times, not just here, but also in a few other areas. Hope to get it all back in 2016.

Still, there were a few posts here, quite a few more on the Islay Pictures photoblog and some on the various social media sites where I'm active (Twitter @islayblog, Armin Grewe on Google+, IslayBlog on Tumblr and Armin Grewe on Facebook). Thank you to all of you who have been reading, commenting, liking, retweeting, resharing, ‘faving’ and ‘plussing’ (have I forgotten anything?) my posts. It was a pleasure interacting with you, I hope you will stick with me for 2016 as well and enjoy what I'm sharing.

To close two songs which have next to nothing to do with Islay (closest I can think of is that one of the bands is Scottish, the other from Downpatrick in County Down about 90 miles south of Islay. To my knowledge neither band has been to Islay (yet), although the singer of Idlewild lives on Mull). They are from two of my favourite bands, both have at long last brought out a new album in 2015:

First were Idlewild:

Second were Ash:

That's all I've got. Good night. Happy New Year. Happy Hogmanay. Guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr. Frohes Neues Jahr. Bliadhna Mhath Ùr.

Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
