An Ode to the Purple Man of St Andrews

Who are you, Purple Man?

Oh purple man, thou sentient berry hue

How thy coat and inky trousers match

Ne’er one garment out of place

And thy sway the eyes of others catch.

Thy midnight shade, thine sweet Ribena beard

So full as if a-stolen from a sleeping otter

Draw me in with thy amethyst glare

Like Serendip, the wind is turning hotter.


Who art thou I wonder, purple man

To whom can boast thine scented orchid being?

Thine shifting vision, slip-budge walk

Hidden though we ne’er tire of seeing.

Oh turrets high, ruins smelted in God’s steely wrath

These three streets where none hath thy name

But on the pebbled paves we verily step

Without thee our town would not be the same.

Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thanks|

  15. Vain luotettavimmat ja rehellisimmat toimijat saavat toimiluvan, jonka turvin ne saavat pyorittaa toimintaansa. Talla kasinolla voit siis olla huoletta omasta tilanteestasi, koska sivusto on sitoutunut viranomaisten tiukkoihin periaatteisiin. Lisaksi N1 kertoo kayttavansa vain niin kutsutun Random Number Generator -sertifikaatin tayttavia peleja. N1Casino on ollut toiminnassa vuodesta 2017 saakka, joten aivan uutukainen, nuori nettikasino ei ole enaa kyseessa. Uusia pelaajia odottaa myos houkutteleva bonus, johon kannattaa kayda ehdottomasti tutustumassa. Bonuksesta loytaa myos lisatietoja tasta arvostelusta. Me esittelemme sivustollamme nimemme mukaisesti vain uudet kasinot, joista suurin osa on kuluvana vuonna pinnalle putkahtaneita kasinoalan superlupauksia. Koska uusia tulokkaita on tyrkylla paljon, paivitamme listallemme vain ne uudet kasinot, jotka tayttavat ylla mainitut kriteerit. Kyllä vain! Ihan kuten tavalliset kasinot, myös pikakasinoiden kohdalla pelilisenssit kertovat paljon kasinon luotettavuudesta. Voi jopa sanoa, että kasinot ilman rekisteröitymistä ovat turvallisempia, koska luotettava ja turvallinen Trustly toimii kolmantena osapuolena pelaajan ja nettikasinon välillä.  Pelaajan ei myöskään tarvitse jakaa mitään omia tietoja minnekään. Koska erillistä pelitiliä ei ole, ei kukaan voi myöskään esimerkiksi kaapata pelaajan käyttäjää ja sen mahdollisia varoja.

  16. Just a few more seconds before your game starts! Scramble Words is a free online word scramble game, with many exciting twists and turns!\r\n\r\nScramble Words is a word-making game. The goal is to unscramble the list of letters found at the bottom of the screen, using your keyboard or mouse to spell out words. As you’re unscrambling, keep in mind that scoring —the goal of the game — is based on the length of the words you spell, the difficulty of the letters used, and how quickly you find and spell each word. Up the difficulty and you’ll be rewarded handsomely! For car enthusiasts who like to pour over a level of detail including tyre flat spots, heat cycles, graining, and blistering, Assetto Corsa has you covered. Over 100 powerful supercars from world renown manufacturers await – so whether you love Pagani, McLaren, Lamborghini, or any of the other big names, you’ll have your pick of the best. And thanks to laser scanning technology, 24 configurations from 15 legendary circuits, including Silverstone, Nordschleife, and Spa Francorchamps, are all recreated with staggering realism.
