Re: D you have a pet?

We have a very large, grumpy rabbit, who is quite old in rabbit terms at 7.
He's got a very definite personality and deeply devoted to my wife, I think he sees me as a rival ::):

Re: Sad News

I haven't been on here in a long while and have just come across this.
I never met Josef personally, my interaction with him was via PMs and it was always enjoyable to debate with him.
You can never find the words really to express a loss such as this, only to say he'll be very much missed RIP

At that time i worked for a funeral company in Glasgow who were notorious with their staff turn around (eventually I too left) but found myself always 'on call' at the weekend despite their b...

Re: 'Style Mile' Monstrosity

Mmmm I wonder if they still use brown envelopes or do they create a company, who creates another company, who creates another company offshore in some far flung destination and then pays money in via BACS which goes to a holding company on behalf of another 'charitable' organisation who then loans ...

Re: 'Style Mile' Monstrosity

From the illustration, it looks totally out of proportion to the adjoining buildings. You wonder why GCC Planning would pass it, at all.
There seems to be an addiction amongst designers for these glass and metal monstrosities.

Re: The Girly Thread

I've heard of people selling dresses in shops selling second hand or what some call preloved clothing. Perhaps a search on Google to see if there is one in your area. I sold mine in a shop which sold second hand and end of line clothing. Also some people sell privately via classified adverts in loc...
