Firefighters tackle large blaze at hospital in Glasgow

Re: The Jolly Giant

It *was* 1985 and the Star Wars figures were Chewbacca and Medic droid. I know what you mean about the final, rare figures and I kick myself reminiscing now. In our native East Kilbride, our John Menzies, had stacks of Yak Face and Anakin Skywalker (old man version) I was all about He-Man and disre...

Re: The Jolly Giant

Brilliant! I recognise it now. Must be a 1985 entry - I'll ask! What Star Wars figures did you get? The "Last Seventeen" had just been released in summer 1985, but due to the declining interest of Star Wars by this point, the shops could barely give them away, and all things Star Wars bec...

Re: The Jolly Giant

image.jpg The Crow Road Jolly Giant is indeed now Arnold Clark. I found a 1982 school diary entry where my brother pretty much details a virtual tour of the inside of the store: "When I went in there was a Jolly Giant dummy. He is looking after the trolleys. I went through a metal roundabout t...

Re: Oddities

All the benches on the grounds surrounding the Macmillan Reading Rooms at the University are designed to look like mortuary pathology tables!

Re: RIP HollowHorn

Very sad news. As others have said, he was a true gent, and it was always a great pleasure to be in his company.

Re: Southern General Hospital & Redevelopment

Posted this in an other thread, but I think it's worth sticking it in here for reference... I've recently came into possession of a list of every Scottish hospital and their bed complement (circa 2007), and it makes for some interesting reading. The new QEU "super" hospital has between 1,1...

Re: Not really interesting facts about yourself

In this case, no beds was the cry, so add the 5 hour wait, on a trolley, to see a medic, to the further 2 hours till a bed could be found, meant 7 hours on a trolley in total. She's a young women, so bad enough for her, but not exactly brilliant for the older generation. That IAU is a hoot. Nursing...
