  1. Best place to get a first car?

    Where is the best place to buy a first car nowadays? The laddie is 17 soon, nowhere seems to have anything for under a 1000 like there was not too many years ago.

  5. Things you miss as an expat

    The getting old thread got me thinking. We must be a fair few on here that are no longer living within spitting distance of Easter Road. I was thinking about all the things I miss living away from home. My main one is proper pubs, I try to explain this to Swedes and they look at me like I have two...

  6. The most beautiful tracks

    I've just been listening to The Lonely Shepherd by Zamfir and the Blade Runner love theme by Vangelis and they're both truly beautiful. If we were to make a Hibs.net playlist of beautiful tracks, which would you nominate? PS. Listen to the songs I mentioned when you're ready to be chilled.

    It was with no small degree of relief that I realised I'll be out of the country on business on the date of this year's work Xmas night out. Am I alone in feeling, at best, a total sense of ennui with this "tradition"? Here in Switzerland there's generally less of the mass drinking and...
