Leask Sites on the Internet

This list was originally started in the mid 1990s when the Internet was still in its yoof and searching not as good as it is now.  I have just gone through the links again in 2015 and most of them are still there albeit maybe with a new page address.  I haven’t made up my mind yet whether this page is still worthwhile.  Search engines are now so fab and what with Social Media Leasks are easier to find.

http://www.greenex.co.uk/philosophy/platonism.html A philiosopher. Ian Leask argues that Platonism is not nascent Hegelianism, but is, instead, a ‘philosophy of finitude’. What I want to know is – why, when I drive up to a road junction lots of traffic suddenly appears and I cant get out? This I feel is strong evidence for the existence of God, and he doesn’t like me.

http://community.aliainstitute.org/profile/JanieLeask A page giving details on Janie Leask of Alaska. Its heading is “Top 25 Most Powerful Alaskans”. I am sure that Janie does sterling work but that title for me just conjures up pictures of the Mob and J.Edgar Hoover.  the site no longer exists but have a look at this one instead.  http://www.alaskool.org/projects/ancsa/JLeask/JLeask.Introduction.htm

    Hi, I have been reading your site and wondered if you had heard of a Leask Castle? My husband (Robert Leask) had a calendar of Scottish castles and says one of them was called Leask Castle, but we can’t seem to find it’s location. Being of Scottish descent (his father emigrated to Oshawa, Ontario, Canada back in the 1950’s) we are making a trip to the ‘old country’ next fall and I would love to track it down if in fact it does exist so we can visit and get some pictures. Ever heard of it ?

      Hi, sorry for the long delay in replying. This old Leask body is having some health issues that have kept me away. No sorry, I haven’t heard of a Leask castle. Wouldn’t it be great if we had one? There is the old manor house and remains of a church of sorts. I would be surprised if the Clan was wealthy enough to have build such a thing. I wonder if your husband is mistaken? I have always referred to that area as the Hills of Leask but recently I have started to wonder where that title came from. I cant find it anywhere else. I am now wondering whether it is something my Dad made up when he went up there in the 1980s. We always called the area “The Hills of Leask” in the family but in fact it was never an “official” title.

      Anyway have a great time next Fall. I just hope the weather is better in a years time. The rain is awful at the moment.

      Best wishes, Ray
