      PHOTOBUCKET CHANGES WILL AFFECT OUR FORUM   07/13/2017

      Photobucket has changed their rules of usage. They are not allowing embedded photos to forums with the simple accounts all of us at GALS have. The mods are really annoyed - Photobucket wants $39.99 A MONTH which has to be paid in advance in one sum of $399!!! Can you imagine? Some of us have an account that should allow us to have our photos 'hot linked' as they call it, through December 2018.   There are alternative services, but they all are charging, too. This will mean the end of our avatars, signatures and images of Gerry that we're so fond of sharing in our posts.   Image Shack will still allow sharing, but they are charging for that service, although not as much as Photobucket.   The images cannot be hosted by GALS as that would drive up the cost of hosting, which we already struggle to pay.   We're looking into alternatives.   To find out more about the issue:  http://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/categories/200056995-Sharing-and-Linking   http://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/articles/115010128088-What-users-are-affected-by-the-changes-to-our-3rd-Party-Hosting-policies- If you were a Plus Account subscriber in good standing as of June 1, 2017,

Study abroad in Scotland

6 posts in this topic

I have been thinking about studying abroad in Scotland for the summer of 2015 or 2016 and was wondering what things I should do while I'm there. My Great-grandmother was 1/2 Scottish so it runs on my family obviously and I've just always had this draw to the beautiful land. If anyone on the GBGALS forum is from there or has been there before knows of any cool sites to see, which I'm sure there are endless possibilities, I would love to know! Thanks in advance!

Hi Josee! There are a lot of school programs during the regular school year but not so much during the summer, which is when I would like to go, But there are like a couple. I too want to go partially because of GERRY being from there and hopefully bumping into his mom and hitting it off with her and then have her tell him what a great girl she met just for him HAHAHAH!!!! I can dream right!??!?! It's just so beautiful there too.

Hi,

My friend and I (a GAL here) went to Scotland, Ireland & England in the summer of 2010. If I could be packed and ready to go back in a minute. Scotland especially was the most beautiful place I've ever seen. You are so right about there is so much to see and lots of history. We spent 4 days in Scotland in different cities and believe it wasn't enough time to see it all. The Culloden Battlefield was so moving and don't forget to see Gerry's Stone there. The people are just awesome too. Hope this helps a bit but you really need to do your homework on what you want to see. Welcome to GALS.

Hi Lu!

Gerry has a stone there? Is it because of family history or anything related? I want to visit as many castles as possible but I know there tons of them! Even just finding a cliff to sit on and relaxing would be nice. I've definitely been doing some research on what to see but didn't know amid anyone here lives there or had visited before (like yourself). Thanks!

Tori,

Here is a picture of the stone that I took.. It was a donation project made by some of Gerry's fans a few years back.
