Got married on Saturday, my best man contacted the club and I got an amazing personal note during his speech from Sir David Gray - absolutely made my day.
I've been trying to find out what's the highest recorded temperature in Edinburgh but I'm not having much success.
Is there any way for me to find this out?
The same information about York would be good too.

In the middle of being restored after a catastrophic fire a few years back, and it's just gone up in flames again!
Fire has spread to several buildings surrounding, including the O2 ABC (which is my favourite gig venue in Glasgow :( ), who's roof appears to have collapsed!
Devastating when it...
Gets published tomorrow. As you would expect, some bits are being leaked and spun already. Twitter is going to be an unreadable nightmare as the zealots on both sides tell you it's a warped fantasy perpetrated by evil anti-English bigots or the greatest thing since sliced milk and honey.
Remarkable gorilla dies.
Highly articulate rap dude Akela is highlighting that the murder rate in Scotland is higher than London but the tabloids (and Trump) are getting all aerated only about London stabbings. He says Wales is higher too but can't find the stats on that.
Anyone would think that the tabloids have...

I'm a huge Hip Hop fan but when singing lyrics I say "homie" instead.

Thought the Iraeli butchers deserved a mention gunning down Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border, 60 dead and thousands injured.
The population is so docile.
We're here on holiday in Shanghai visiting our oldest son who's been out here since September.
The city itself is bustling to say the least, but the one thing that stands out like a sore thumb is that the population are so conforming, lacking emotion.
The new editor of the Mail is pro-EU and a staunch remainer.
Will we see a change in editorial policy in the coming months?
I would think it very likely.
New Daily Mail editor to be Geordie Greig
What a headline
Just finished watching this 6 part series. Truly shocking events. One of the best dramatisations I've seen so if you can get a hold of it do so.
Hard to believe a government would treat its citizens like this even if one of them was a bit loopy.
This one is on Raasay and the description makes it sound like it'll be worth a visit in a couple of years.

been wondering about why council tax bands are determined by your property value rather than your income...also, why it's based on what your property was worth in 1991 (i think?) rather than something more up-to-date? seems odd to me, and rather arbitrary. there must be a good reason though?
He must have thought it was a good idea at the time!
And there are people supporting him.
Surprised this hasn't attracted any comment given the obvious parallels.
It all looks very messy atm. How do we see this ending up?
Not been seen for 22 days now! One tweet using suspiciously Trump (Twitler) language rasing suspicions further.
Whatís going on? Ideas?
Not sure if anyone has seen this or not.
This is astounding.
The first instance caught on tape is not the one I am interested in here. The second one, around 5.00, is however.

A friend just bought tickets for Joan Baez concert and has just been ripped off by Viagogo. £20 booking fee/ ticket. Hidden charges till the end. Appears their website is set up to con the unsuspecting buyer.
Be warned!!!!!! Please spread the word. It's the only way to beat traders of this ilk.
Having not managed to get a ticket for the bus shelter on Wednesday I decided to watch the game in Leith surrounded by fellow hibees. I haven't been down (outside of match days) for a year or so.

What are peopleís thoughts on what is likely to be a highly emotive subject.
Personally I am a big supporter of Jamie Oliver and his mission to reduce child obesity and in turn obesity in general.
I know many others disagree with it for a variety of reasons.

So, "Admins" - out of curiosity, what is the situation with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on Hibs.Net? This applies to the site too, doesn't it? Do we members all get an email with a statement of your data protection policy?

Good or bad?
I know there's the argument that it will cut down drinking - but will it?
Yes. The people who can handle drink will probably have a set budget for it and will just buy less.
The people who misuse alcohol will still drink the same. They'll get the extra money by cutting out other...

I've been watching this series on Netflix and I have question regarding the Edinburgh episode. Does anyone know the guy that utters the most amazing line ever heard on television? I am of course, referring to the, "we love fanny batter" line. Genuine laugh out loud moments are quite rare, but to...
Itís been pretty low key as far as the news is concerned, but this eruption could go on for years. The threat to life is low, but the fact that these are volcanic islands means that without the volcano they wouldnít exist. The latest eruption is just a continuation of what has formed the islands in...
