The loveliest person I have ever met in my life. 'Miss' is an inadequate word, but there again, I'm not sure there is such a thing as an adequate word in this circumstance. Any of you (us) who have ever met him - you'll know what I mean. A loss not just to Euan, not just to his friends and family, b...

All the points he makes are correct, and some of them shaming, from my position. I find myself in a bit of a bind, though. Unpunctuated posts *are* semi-unreadable. I accept ...

There's pedantry and there's simple courtesy. If you can't be bothered to make your pronouncements readable, then you're in the tinfoil hat/UKIP brigade.

Re: A wee joke

I wonder who was the first person to say: 'You see that chicken? The next thing that falls out of it's arse, I'm going to eat it!' Y'know, the one that gets me is that Japanese fish where you have to train for three years before they'll allow you to prepare it for human consumption. I mean, how did...

Re: What are you watching?

Gone Girl.

Friday night Channel 5 without the sax and the sex.

Re: Glasgow in Minecraft

https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/scotland/360306/15-year-old-creates-glasgow-minescraft/ 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... ;) Not to worry. It's always ...

Re: Stirling Castle pub

One of the few places I have ever seen that had sawdust on the floor. Sawdust? Pfah! We were in a Pub in Moss Street in Paisley (HH, fill in name of pub here) a couple of weeks ago that still had a marble urination trough from the days when pubs had no lavatory and you just let go against the bar. ...
