Re: Hiking near Glasgow?

I am pretty sure you can get the bus out to Luss as well - at this time of year you will be able to do the Ben Dhu horseshow with ease - a good day out walk. Check out http://urbanflyfisher.com/a-bit-of-a-wa ... einn-dubh/ for some dodgy photos. That book in the post is great as well :D

Most of the spiders we get in the house are Tegenaria Duellica, commonly known as the Giant House Spider - wolf spiders live outdoors. You'll see more Tegenaria Duellica at this time of year as the mature males start wandering around looking for a mate. It's quite common for the bigger specimens to...

Good grief - not allowed to shout in the streets to advertise a paper ? One of my fondest memories is getting dragged around town when a youngster and wondering why these people were shouting
" Flooooooobadobba Wonka"

At least - that is what it sounded like to me :D

I rate the "Hoola Burger" in the Hoola Cafe quite highly - nice and thich with fancy wee potato things on the side. Only downside is they seem to have reduced the size in the last month or so.

Still nice though !

I worked there for 8 years and it just seemed to get worse. Even staff are having problems as there is now a max 2hr stay at Sainsbury. Also the building of new flats on site of tyre place opposite causes lots of delays. The worst was last week I tried to get onto Crow rd but some Fud had parked ri...
