Abbotsford the home of Ivanhoe

For all the fans of Sir Walter Scott's writing - and there are quite a few - this day might be an interesting day.
Queen Elizabeth will today officially re-open sir Walter Scott's house, 22 months after it was closed to and 180 years after it was first open to the public, five months after the death of Scott.

$10 600 000 has been raised in order to re-open this house but evidentally it still lacks $4 600 000. I'll look but I think that sir Walter has to make it without my wallet.
