Sir Norman Wisdom passed away this afternoon :boo hoo::boo hoo:
The term 'legend' is used quite a lot nowadays....but he's a legend and a half :agree:
RIP :boo hoo::boo hoo:
I am looking to be buying a house soon in glasgow, is anyone from through that way able to recommend a decent solocitor that won't be completely ripping me off. Only got one quote so far of £1000 seems like a bit much but if thats what i have to pay then i suppose i have to pay it!
A friend of mine (okay its me - no its not, i'm happily married) swears by this and is always busy since he discovered eharmony and match and other, ehm, fiestier sites.
Anyone have any experience of this?
I have always believed in the after life (not a religious thing) just always thought there has to be something after this.
My mum has had a similar interest, we have both read books and watched things but never visited a psychic or medium. I thought for her birthday next month I would take her,...
noticed this interesting piece, a new memorial to honour the dead in the rail crash, with the vast majority of them being from the royal scots guards 7th company(leith) http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-south-scotland-11404043
Police hating gunman on the run.
Are you going to be switching to the new mobile style anytime soon?
As they change they will be fickle so I'd probably play them something like Bohemian Rhapsody which also changes.
I think the creative period in any artists lifetime doesn't go past 40 years old. Once they've went past that milestone they're finished. They might write songs but they aren't relevant.
I've just watched the manics and it was embarrasing. They were old school regurgitating the same stuff.
Teresa Lewis is to be executed in Virginia today. She has been found guilty of masterminding the double murder of her husband and stepson, even though she has the mental age of a twelve year old. Her two co-accused were given life sentences after firing the fatal shots. One of the co-accused has...
Caught a glimpse on Lothian rd
I think you'll find if you look carefully
That's a hibs tartan scarf he's wearing
Sir Tom obv had an audience
What will the celtc fans make of this?!!!
So I need to get myself new ones.
I usualy always just use Vision Express but I was looking around online and they seem to be much cheaper to buy them that way.
Anyone bought their lenses online and if so, any sites best to use.
33 years since he rode his white swan out of this world. Where the hell do the years go?
Applying lipstick, eating an apple, smoking a fag, or 'inappropriate intimacy', the end result may the same.
I'm sure you have all heard about the pastor in america who is planning to burn 200 Korans. Now my initial reaction was that this wrong and simply going to lead to more hatred and trouble between the west and islam.
However, I got to thinking, how do you think we would react if we continually...
Ok maybe a daft question to some of you but here goes:
So we hear all this talk about the country's national debt and the need to reduce it.
So who did we borrow this money from? the world bank? the International Monetary Fund?
And question 2. Where did they get the money from to lend it to...
seriously not trying to be offensive or take the piss or whatever here...
but do you really, seriously think the pope is somehow "holier" than anyone else, and that there is some devine weight attached to everything he says? if so, is it a problem when he says things you disagree with?
Which of this lot would you cross the street to avoid? The axe-murderer, or any member of this band of absolute bawbags pictured in the story...:confused:
So what do people all think about the Pope's visit to the UK in September?
His visit alone could cost up to £20 million in tax payers money!
He is also parading around the city of Edinburgh doing that thing that the Pope does (parading around like a enlightened being) with Keith O'Brien and...
Following on from the smoking thread I thought this might make a good read for some folk out there. Its from the USA but I donít think that matters much as its about multi-national companies.
An article about how major companies all feed off each other with no regard for you and I but only in...
There is a bit of disaffection regarding the impending Papal visit but I have to say, being in possesion of more things to concern myself with, that there appears to be a disproportionate amount of vitriol emanating from the Asbestos Hilton.
While I agree it is an expense that is uneccessary, my...
With all the news from the unions last week about strikes being likely over the coming months I got to thinking, now I have never backed strikes in the past as I see them as being counter productive in most cases, I also just haven't agreed with the cause most of the time.
However I think this...
I am planning to do this before my 40th birthday so still plenty of time to come to my senses. I was just wondering if anybody has ever done this and if so can give me info on possible routes etc. I want to end up in Dunfermline at one point but many routes I have seen take you down the west coast....
Pretty accurate, no?
My dad is taking his burd off to London for a couple of days next week and would like to know the best way to get from Stanstead Airport to Bloomsbury (WC1) any help greatly appreciated :thumbsup:
Anyone read this today :greengrin
Well I work in an office on Regent Road. Already hundreds of excited kids are piling into the old Royal High School along with a load of pipe bands. Helicopters are circling overhead. Some people have already taken their positions by the barriers!
About 2 hours to go before he gets here.
Looking for a good B&B for a night away soon. Any recommendations within 2.5 hours of Edinburgh? Want to feel like we're getting away from it for a night!
Hi, Looking for some advice about buying a house before i properly start looking and seeking out mortgages again.
I am looking to buy a house with my wife, I am not a first time buyer, but she will be, does this mean we are treated as first time buyers or not if one of us is and one isnt?
See these Tories, they are as subtle as a rugby team from the borders standing outside an Amsterdam brothel. The red faced, ham fisted sons of the shires are turning their hand to welfare.
There was some government woman on the news last night talking up the role that faith groups have to play...
What's this woman all about?
I think she had a valid point about why was Social Work the only one singled out. Health and police always seem to slope off in these situations. However, given the way she has behaved, she made them an easy target.
We live in flats that are by maintained by factors
They manage the upkeep collect bills etc
However this one has on several occasions failed to collect and allowed quite substantial unrecoverable debts to arise. By the title deeds were all liable but the thing is we don't know who is or is not...
anyone have any recommendations for hotels in Prague?
Heading across for a Basketball tourny at end of month and need a good located hotel,
also need one in Karlovy Vary, which is probably harder to find recommendation for on here but worth a try anyway
We're looking to get an AC Milan (7 Pato) shirt for a friends birthday. Looks like £60 for a printed one via Subside, Kitbag etc. It can be bought for £35 from Sports Direct, but then printing costs need factored in.
Does this ebay seller and product appear legitimate enough...
As the original thread seems to have been deleted, I make only limited apologies in raising this particular bugbear of mine again. This link to a woman explaining how Hahnemannian Homeopathy works is excrutiatingly barking. If your brain doesnt revolt by spontaneously combusting or shutting down...
I was told of a person residing in England who was convicted of drink-driving (£500 fine and 15 months disqualification) but there seems to me to be some inconsistencies.
As I understand it from second-hand information imparted on me by the accused.
Admitted to being over the limit and drove...
Here's another inexplicably contentious one - moderate Muslims have - through the entirely legitiimate means of fund raising then buying property (the scoundrels!!!) - plans to build a inter-faith centre,...
Today marks another anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in modern times.
It's incredible to think that it was nine years ago. Although the years keep going by, it seems like only yesterday that I was watching that horrifying footage unfold on TV. I remember coming home from school (I was...
I heard a news report today regarding the Catholic Church in Australia banning certain kinds of music from funeral services and I must admit I found the decision quite baffling to say the least! What's the consensus folks?
