I'm sure many of you will have enjoyed a pint or 2 in here before a game, and may still do. If you are not aware it is at risk of closing for good due to some ridiculous reasons cited for not allowing them an outside licence. All info can be found here -...

Following on from the Beautiful Tracks thread, I thought of a few classical pieces that would fit the bill, but that thread went in a different direction, and anyway classical music is such a broad category I think it deserves a thread of its own. So, if you have a favourite classical tune or...
I've gone a wee while without listening to much in the way of new music, but there's been a spate of album releases I've wanted to check out lately for one reason or another and I've been pleasantly surprised.
Babel - Mumford and Sons: Develops their sound from Sigh No More and really cements...

The small estate where I live (Edinburgh) has residents parking and over the years it's got that busy (through multiple car ownership) that some residents can't get parked in the evening. The surrounding area is...
Has anyone used a private Genealogist to trace their family tree ?
Any examples of total cost?
I've just asked for prices from a couple of people listed on the ASGRA website but would imagine it would be difficult to estimate the time needed. They charge £25 per hour plus agreed expenses if...
Iím on holiday in turkey and thereís a guy that goes around in roller skates taking orders for drinks and handing out ice lollies. I could easygo and order this myself, but it makes me happy when the guy comes round in his roller skates.
What are the little things in life that make you happy.
With many people having more time on their hands atm what books are people reading? Phil Rickman is an author I like. Just finishing his book Friends of the dusk.

Weíre considering/have decided to get a dog - we know the types weíd like (one of my kids has allergies so we need to look for a hypoallergenic). List has been narrowed to Miniature Schnauzer, Bichon Frise, West Highland Terrier.
Does anyone know where I start?
To follow on from the Beatles/Stones/Who threads....I've been listening to REM for the first time in years and I'm blown away by how good some of their stuff still sounds. But to pick one song is almost impossible - for me you could pick 4 songs each of Document, Green and Automatic For The People...

Cairngorm Trade Winds

Fallen Smokehouse Porter
This has started to bother me somewhat, every month I get an email from Google showing me my activity over the preceding month. Where Iíve been, what places Iíve visited (obviously not much during lockdown) how far Iíve driven, walked, cycled etc.
I understand that by allowing them to access...
Just watching an ABBA countdown on one of the music channels. They started off as a bit of a novelty act, but they really werenít. Theyíre one of the few bands that have managed to transcend the generations and are probably more popular now than they were back then. Some of the figures around album...
Continuing the recent trend. Whatís everyoneís favourite The Who song?
The classics like My Generation, I Canít Explain, 5:15, Who Are You, Pinball Wizard etc etc stand up against any other bands IMO.
Some of my favourites, although not necessarily their best songs, are The Seeker, Pictures...
I was out in the garden today and I noticed a bird flying into a gap between the bricks and the wood at the top of the wall in the back garden. Iíve never noticed before but there appears to be a series of vents along this area, I then noticed another bird flying into one of the other vents and I...
Well it's been talked about on the Beatles thread so why not.
For me Honky Tonk Women will always be top but honourable mentions for a few ballads, Angie, Moonlight Mile, Wild Horses and Memory Motel.
Following on from other film threads, what are your favourite 'low budget' films?
I'll start with
Dead man's shoes

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.
I'm not sure if this topic has been done before on here, almost certainly I guess, but I can't remember it. It was a Radio 4 show for a while and the Guardian are currently doing it.
So, well, (:greengrin) it's one film acknowledged as a classic that you haven't seen. And maybe explain whether...
I have a rotary hammer drill with a dodgy power lead that I would like repaired if possible but i am having no luck finding anyone who does it.
Can anyone suggest a repair shop that can repair it.
I borrowed it from the brother in law who hates lending tools and I think I have damaged the lead...
Is anyone on here good at chess? And how do you get better?
I used to play with my grandad when I was a kid, I used to think he was a sort of Bonnyrigg grand master at it. When I beat him I celebrated like David Gray in 2016. Unfortunately as i got older, and proper chess players were handing...
Just watched it and I can't figure out the melody that Jack was playing on the piano when Kaya gets back to the house. I know it but just can't put a name to it and it's driving me nuts. HEEEEEEEELP!
The Oscars seem to dictate what we consider to be the best acting performances, but Iím not sure everyone will agree with that. Whatís the best performance youíve seen in a film.
I loved James Mcvoy in Filth and Tom Cruise in Interview with a vampire.
