Kilwinning - Keil memorial & Speybank home

Finally, here are the photos from the our visit to Kilwinning, Scotland in 2009. We first found the memorial for the Keil family after searching high and low with the help from the cemetary attendants. Afterwards, Mark realised that we had driven past the family home 'Speybank' on the way into town (having remembered the photos he'd seen already), we located it.

The "McClintock effect"

Interesting name connection!

The McClintock effect, also known as menstrual synchrony or the dormitory effect, is a theory that proposes that the menstrual cycles of women who live together (such as in prisons, convents, bordellos or dormitories) tend to become synchronized over time.
