Gorbals Street Trees

I was walking along Gorbals Street today and there were tree surgeons everywhere, taking down the trees by the railway line, opposite the new development where the Stirlingfauld flats used to be. Why? Anyone know?

Re: Insects, Spiders and Creepie-Crawlies

I put a wasp out the window today. I don't think I've seen one so late in the year. November, yes, but a bit earlier in the month. A month or so ago, I had one that kept coming into the kitchen.

Glasgow in Minecraft

https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/ne ... inescraft/

A 15yo lad is creating Glasgow in Minecraft. A considerable undertaking, I would imagine, and by the time he's finished, he'll have to knock-down/set-on-fire half of it... ;)
