I try to be diligent and check which stories and emails etc are real and trustworthy before forwarding them and I've done a fair amount of research to determine that this is a legitimate scheme.
It may not come to anything in the long run, but when the FT and Martin Lewis are suggesting that the...
As with most of the U.K. I am fully onboard with gin nowadays.
Whatís everyoneís favourite gin and your favourite tonic?
Iím looking to expand my palette.
Iím a big fan of Ophir (slight spiced peppery taste).
This article states that people are claiming Die Hard is a Christmas film and it’s tearing the internet apart.
Who would you nominate?
Nominees must have contributed to the field of science
They must be real
They must not be alive
They must have shaped thought, innovation, leadership or values in the UK
This year, for the first time, The Ballon D'Or had two categories; Male and Female player of the year. The winner was a lady called Ada Hegerberg from Norway.
Her acceptance speech was intended to inspire girls/young women to stick at it in football and be the best they could.
Yes or No.
Don't bother with comments, just have your vote.
Edit: You need to be on the full site to vote.
I'm thinking of applying to do one before I get too old. I know Topographic Hibby has studied for a PhD; has anyone else, and is there any essential advice you would offer?
Three years is a big commitment, then there's finances to consider. Any advice on funding options? I'd like to do it, but...
I find that as time goes by I am getting more easily distracted.
Sometimes I have to have internet access to do certain tasks, and the internet is a huge box of distractions, and I find that I can lose days to being hugely unproductive and getting very little done.
You may notice that on...
Interesting (in a dismayed, sickening sort of a way) report from the UN:
We all remember the adverts, but didn’t think they were still trading
See they are in the news today, who uses these sort of services nowadays, possibly older people. £11.23 for a 90 second call, outrageous
I just read this on the BBC, I'd never heard this before, I'm amazed I wasn't taught about it at school.
It's kind of amazing. Imagine seeing that.
Sorry for such a strange request but, does anyone know of a bakers in Edinburgh that still sells proper old bran scones (in rounds and in four sections) ?
Watched a documentary about this recently and it makes you think twice about our landscape and culture. It was pretty uncomfortable viewing.
The involvement is something we simply havenít faced up to and batted away with ďIt wisnae us, it was EnglandĒ. One theory behind this is thatís itís...
Well, it's almost here!!
The unbelievable is about to happen tomorrow.
I wonder how it's all going to pan out.
Whatever happens, it's going to be a roller coaster. Hold on................
Absolutely disgusting. What kind of a world are we living in? :soapbox:
Josep Borrell (Who is Catalan but viscerally opposed to Catalan independence.)
"If Westminster agrees why should we be against it?"
Hopefully that clears that up. (Aye, sure it will :rolleyes:).
I mentioned this show on the TV thread in the Dug Out but it left me a bit conflicted so I was wondering if anyone else watched it and what your thoughts are?
Firstly I thought it was very well made and treated a difficult subject matter gently. Secondly I think it's too easy when discussing...
Good to see that pressure is building up against the NRA. It's good to see some companies starting to take a stance against this organisation.
When I hear anything from the NRA, I'm lost for words. How gullible are the American public to...
Sad to read that Stan Lee has passed away.
Not only did this man create many of the iconic characters of our modern culture, but he made it "OK" for geeks to be out in the open. It became cool to like comics again, and his narratives, resulting in an entire universe of characters, comics,...
Exactly what freedoms are we supposed to thank army vets here and in USA for?
WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan? Exactly what is it that millions of people died for?
Anyone given this a proper go? I started his fundamentals course yesterday. That lasts for 10 weeks.
My mates tried to warn me off it as he was pretty overwhelmed by what he calls kundalini.
It seems we are saying this almost daily but WTF?
BBC News - Man, 98, fighting for life after robbery in north London home
Awful awful assault. In a few days time we remember those who fought, regardless of our opinions on poppies this man...
It seems every year brings a new controversy or new story surrounding the national symbol of Remembrance.
I find myself balking a little at how the symbol and meaning behind the poppy has become utterly *******ised in recent years. It's no longer simply a symbol of those who fought and gave up...
Just watched an interesting programme on tv, about commonwealth workers who came to the uk during ww2 to work on farms.
Sam Martinez left British Honduras in 1941 aged 32 where he lived in the jungle, barefooted and scavenged for food, came to the uk and worked as a lumberjack in the borders. ...
watching live the now, looks horrendous
I actually know this woman through my wife, and I wondered what others take on this was?
I personally think it's incredibly stupid, and I find it unpalatable that the nursery is defending this too.
As an avid hillwalker and trail runner the below is something that has troubled me for a while. Seeing it in sucn stark terms brings it home though. Any of us could need these volunteers help one day:
If you know anyone using WhatsApp you might pass on this. An IT colleague has advised that a video comes out tomorrow from WhatsApp called martinelli do not open it , it hacks your phone and nothing will fix it. Spread the word.
If you receive a message to update the Whatsapp to Whatsapp Gold, do...
Me & a mate are going to this.hotel booked on the Friday nite..hibs at home the next day.anyone know where the music venue the biscuit factory is ? We are hibs season ticket holders from Fife & not sure where this venue is.any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Anyone watching this on Sky News? Fascinating television, better then any drama on TV. Pity that there is a serious allegations underneath that have turned into a circus.
BBC News - Paddy Ashdown: Former Lib Dem leader being treated for cancer
I am not a one party voter and have always had respect for Paddy particularly his work in the Balkans/former Yugoslavia. Wish him well.
Iím Flabbergasted that some, not all, within the SNP seem to think itís open season on Scottish trade unionists. The attacks on GMB, Unison and EIS members and their officials seems to be at odds with the SNP position of being left of centre. Surely they realise that a yes vote will only be...
I was with my Lila cat last month when she had to be put to sleep. It has been an awfull year and this became the catalyst for a massive amount of grief for me. I know there are loads of folk here who have "pets" but I think they have us. I know I am not alone, my Lila was a major pal, Cash, her...
I have linked my Shazam and Spotify accounts so I can go back and listen again to songs I hear on the radio.
Now that Apple have bought it, will that be stopped? :dunno:
Was wondering if any .netters have been successful with ppi?
Got a claim going through just as in my younger years I took stuff out without much thought so thought why not try.
Was also told by someone at RBS (unofficially) they will try to call you three times and if they don't answer they...
I am wondering if anyone has one, and their thoughts. My better half was talking to someone from the Energy Savings Trust at the weekend and is now quite keen, the main problem I can see is the convenience of the locations of charging points. Why is there none in supermarket car...
Voted remain, and still strongly remain after watching this shambles unfold. Interested to see how others view this, particularly if there has been a swing from leave to remain.
Constitutional OBSESSIVES only thread! :wink:
You're not really getting the true Israel-Palestine effect there.
Clearly East Edinburgh will be iScotland's restored capital. You can have Gorgie/Dalry/Saughton/Stenhouse as your West Edinburgh colonial outpost. Apart from that you get the...
A lot of debate now about this and Canada has passed a law that makes recreational use legal.
Not sure myself, could it lead to harder drug use?
But if I was walking home on my own at 2am I would rather cross paths with a group of stoners than a group of drunks.
It's an interesting case. Wonder how the courts would have acted had it been a gay baker refusing to bake a cake with a message saying 'Don't support gay marriage'.
