Very varied and enjoyable activities last weekend. Saturday morning I boarded a 44 and headed for Balerno Tattie Day, staged and promoted by Balerno Village Trust. All things potato related were available for purchase, participation or consumption. The tatties really were selling like hot cakes ! I managed to diplomatically decline the offer of buying various types of seed potatoes and head down the road to Juniper Green Community Market for my stewarding stint. Then off to Tynecastle to see Hearts on the wrong end of a 3-2 against Inverness CT.
On Sunday I accepted an invite from the Edinburgh AhlulBayt Society to attend a lecture on medical ethics as viewed through the Islamic faith. TEAS are a Shia Muslim educational group seeking to encourage debate and a greater understanding of Islam. The lecture, in association with Imamia Medics International, was by Professor Shabih Haider Zadi
and focussed on the place of Islamic doctrine in the dogmas of medical
ethics. Very interesting session and healthy debate afterwards. I look forward to attending future events. You can find out more at their website.
