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.
What’s it like in Auld Reekie?
The only snowflakes in London are the Arsenal fans still bleating about losing the league cup final.
This isn’t about your favourite films, it’s about the ones you stumble across on any given night and once you start watching, you know you’ll be in to the end.
You maybe weren’t looking out for it but when you are scrolling through the EPG you find it’s on and it’s an automatic press of the...
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.

It's really not that hard.
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?
Heading to Benidorm this weekend with 11 mates, none of us have been, any recommendations for everything from breakfast to beers to sinful activities will be greatfully received.
Anyone had this done? I was wanting laser surgery but it is not possible and lens replacement is the only option. It will give me good distance viewing but will need reading glasses.
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)
The Magnificent Seven...
Does anyone have a recommendation for a HETAS approved wood burning stove installer?
Mrs SG has her heart set on one, she's seen the one she wants but she needs an installer, already waited 2 weeks for a recommended one to get in touch and I'm now getting it in the ear because tradesmen don't...
Needing 150 bottles of wine, hoping to beat supermarket prices. Anyone any recommendations?
Great piece in the Scotsman
... and you must make one phone call.
If they answer, you die.
If they don't, you're set free.
Who do you call?
(You may have seen this on FB).
or chippies as they are known down south. Any recommendations for the capitals best fish and chips? I have a mate whose a Jambo (I know, I know) and he swears by the Gorgie fish bar, is it any good or is he just wearing his hideously maroon coloured spectacles?
I remember the Celtc fans calling Stuart Slater "Jigsaw" because he went to pieces in the box.
Derek Johnstone was called tadpole by the Rangers fans because he was all head and no feet.
Moisturising. I always used to mock men who do this, now I enthusiastically slap it on the face and hands every morning. Not properly comfy without it.
Hands free headsets. I probably look like I'm talking to myself while walking along but I don't care. Used to think it was the preserve of...
I was wondering if there was any old techno music fans amongst us. I spent a huge part of the 90s in clubs and all nighters like rezerection. If so give us some of your favourite tunes. Iíll start.
not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.
Anyone ever took this route to resolve an issue usually consumer or been taken to court? I am taking P4D/UPS to court over damaged delivery just seeing if anyone has experience or advice.
Has anybody used Green Network Energy or iSupply for their energy suppliers and if so how are they.
...seems they needed cover for the overworked electricians at Tincastle that they have employed another one just to keep the lights on.
Anyone any recommendations VW servicing in or around Edinburgh?
Got a 2016 Golf GT thats due it first service. Phoned Western Volkswagon at Fort Kinnaird and they're quoting £224. Seems a tad steep to me!?
My wife and I started watching Scandal on Sky Living before Christmas and we're about to start Season 4.
It's terrible. It really is.
However, although I literally shout at the TV pretty much every episode because of the ludicrous stories, the awful acting and the glaringly...
I'm considering renting a motor in Gran Canaria in the summer but have never driven abroad so I am a little nervous at the thought .
I'm hopeful that it will just feel natural driving on the right with a left hand drive vehicle.
How have others found driving abroad for the first time ?
Has anyone seen this?
The more i think about it, the more im not sure about it
Beast Epic by Iron & Wine just shading it from Gerry Cinnamon's Erratic Cinematic for me.
Notable efforts also from The Charlatans, Ride, Mogwai, Daughter & Shed 7 too. It's been a decent year for music.
Any thoughts on the best coal out there. Recently moved house and installed a multi-fuel stove and a coal fire. Been using stuff from Homebase, it's murder, any recommendations?
The Clash, New Yearís Day Ď77

Plenty unseen footage apparently . Should be great 👍
... with the ****ing inlaws staying :grr:
I mean, what the ****. I've just opened my Hotel Chocolat box of chocolates this morning and offered them round. The mother in law went straight in for the champagne truffle, '' 'ooo I love these, thanks Bollah' she says. I come back an hour later and...
Rod Stewart and Ron Wood. I never realised Rod could play an instrument. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xlo1NvEdAw&list=RD3xlo1NvEdAw
What wee traditions do you have that are probably not mainstream.
Taking a photo of our 8 year old this year filling up 2 glasses of whisky for Santa and his elf before going to bed. I've done this every year and had a look back at the wee collection we now have and it's a brilliant snap shot in...
Aye the best one would probably be one of those top rated detailing/valet jobs in the £100s if not £1,000s (so I qualified it :-).
So what's the best drive through or hand job where the boys get all wet and soapy?
Gutted to hear Leon passed away yesterday,one of my favourites since I started watching in 2013.
Just been updated and itís Maroon and white. Looks horrible on my phone. They could choose any colour, why Maroon?
Gets me every time
Getting a bus pass.
Difficulty in getting down to cutting your toe nails.
Attending too many funerals.

Has anyone read the whole six volumes of this novel? Often mentioned as the greatest novel of all time; an epic concerning love and loss, time and memory, the role of art to humans and the transience of life, set within the French aristocracy at the turn of the twentieth century. Not a Jackie...
OK. A thread for wee things that caught your attention and have maybe shown stuff from a different angle.
I was thinking mostly music (behind the scenes stuff, stories behind songs, how stuff was written, etc.), but it can be anything really.
The interweb is full of wee gems (as well as a...
I have set up some auto recordings (series link) on my Talk Talk TV box and can't for the life of figure out how to cancel these planned recordings.
I can go into MyTV and delete the recorded programs and its folder but it still records the program whenever it is on.
This would not normally be...
