What? I loved Deadpool!

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - epic Tarantino. I thought it dragged a wee bit in the middle, but it was justified by the end payoff.

Re: space shuttle visits glesga

*Bump* Finally managed to dig up those photies of the shuttle, taken from Kelvingrove park with the University tower in the first shot: I noticed that the image links are dead and I can't seem to edit my own post for some reason, so here are the pics again: https://i.ibb.co/YhJyjYb/scan0001.jpg htt...

Re: What are you watching?

'The Expanse' Season 1 on Amazon Prime. Third time through on this (I have the Blu-Rays). Best sci-fi going at the moment.

Re: Not really interesting facts about yourself

Saw it when it came to the Edinburgh Festival Theatre a few years back. Stunning production, really restores your faith in live theatre (speaking as a curmudgeonly old fart who works in said biz) ::):

Re: Cover Slips in time

I don't know what's more remarkable - that he managed to track down the locations, or that he found all those albums in the first place. I've never heard of any of them!

#19 looks a bit dodgy, but the rest are pretty spot on. Good find.

Re: Clyde Port office building... demolished??

From the framework that's there, it looks as though they might be constructing a facsimile of the old building?

Re: Sad News

Having not looked at this forum in many many months, something drew me back to it this morning, and I'm shocked to find that it was this sad news. I remember my first encounter with Josef, when he came over to my flat to pick up some old OS maps that I was giving away. I was quite wary of his border...

Re: Clyde/Thames Wetlands Archaeology

Hi John,

Have you tried playing with the borehole layer on the BGS interactive map?

Not all of them have freely available records, but many of them do; although I don't know if they'll have the sort of archaeological detail that you're after. Worth a look though.
