  1. Sledging

    I didn't grow up in Edinburgh so never had the opportunity to go sledging here. One of the girls I work with has a wee boy and she is wondering where she can take him. What are the best sledging spots in Edinburgh? She stays at Craigleith/ Blackhall.

  2. Beast from the East

    What’s it like in Auld Reekie? The only snowflakes in London are the Arsenal fans still bleating about losing the league cup final.

  4. Where would you retire to if you won the Euro

    Currently freezing my baws off in the North sea. If you were to win the Euro on Friday or had the chance to retire to somewhere worm, where would you head for. Somewhere where it's easy enough to get back for games if you wanted to.

  6. Standard definition

    Is there any need for this anymore? Having recently bought a new tv I canít watch sd anymore. I used to wonder what the fuss was all about with hd and ultra 4K but I get it now. What would happen if all sd channels were removed? Would some people not be able to watch?

    Not soundtracks - but the tune/s you associate as being the film's theme. Jurassic Park (there's a few catchy rather than emotional ones, like Star Wars, Great Escape, Indiana Jones, bond and MI etc.. but this one is my favourite from the famous quirky ones) Platoon The Magnificent Seven...
