Re: Lost ticket

Think I'll take £50 out the hole in wall today, spend it then tell the bank I lost it and want it back because there's a record of me originally getting it. :wink:

"Every good idea kills at least a thousand men" sings Chicago singer songwriter Joe Pug.

Well Joe, I presume you thought it was a good idea to write that song you cold hearted murdering bastard.

No. My (very) wee joke. And it drew a post from the sorely missed Schiehallion, so - result. :D

And don't forget, Firhill Stadium hosted a European Cup tie long before Hampden, Parkhead or Ibrox!

Re: Satellite Navigation

The cheapest option for satellite navigation is to drive into a scheme and check what way their dishes are facing and that's you got south sussed.

A fellow worker and Lizzy fan had just finished his late shift and we both had a pint for Phil. I worked in an offi...

For me,...

Another old building I've always had a soft spot for is the UCBS (United Co-operative Baking Society) Bakery on Adelphi Street, Gorbals. RCAHMS have a few good photos of its' demolition too. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v195/schiehallion/ucbs.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v195/schiehall...
