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...
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'.
If you think holograms of the deceased is creepy, what about this?
What do you guys make of the journalist who went into the Saudi consulate in Turkey and has just not came out? Heís been missing for over 2 weeks. IMO heís been murdered he was also a critic of the Saudi government.
I just got a flu vaccination at my local Boots. It cost me £12.50.
I tried to get one last year after all the Aussie flu reports started coming in, but by the time I got round to it, they'd run out.
From what the pharmacist was saying, they reckon they'll run out again.
It protects against...
Pretty brave move from the old Aussies if they go ahead with it .
What do people think about this idea?
I'd have loved to have bee in the same room as Amy Winehouse when she was singing, and although it's a bit strange, the prospect of her appearing onstage posthumously still has it's attractions.
It's been discussed as parts of other threads before, but there is to be a vote next week to decide if it should be introduced in Edinburgh at a rate of £2 a night.
What are peoples thoughts?
I'm all for it - a lot of (most?) other cities have it, so I don't see why not. Would put a...
Why does this country bother so much about the weather over in the US when there is so much more crap going on here and in Europe that deserves a hell of a lot more cove than some wind n rain that might not even come to anything?!! Do they bother about the rain in Tiree? I think not.
Having spoken to another poster on here we were thinking about the possibility of a few of us meeting up for this event. We were discussing the last event in Dundee and the fact that there was an old firm fans for independence group at the event. Iím just starting the thread and putting out a...
Thanks to the taxi driver outside the raddison on the royal mile that caused the driver of the 35 to slam on his brakes a few mins ago. A few folk went for a burton down the bus with one lassie now having a sore ankle... Hope she doesn't report it and if youre the same taxi that just went past the...
Which is yours past and present? Iím only 20 and must say the cavendish was probably mine growing up always got in with a fake ID while underage and was cheap as chips. Now itís probably the woodburn club in Dalkeith. Cheap as anything shame itís miles from my house!
Got to love the man/woman :greengrin
Apologies if this has been mentioned already but itís probably worth being aware of an event taking place on Saturday in that it might affect you getting to Easter Road. Take note of the time and route to his end.
