Among the Ďfavouriteí type threads on this forum, I donít recollect seeing an Ďoutstanding bookí one (apologies if there is one). Iím not an avid reader but enjoy a really good book. Somebody gave me a copy of ĎI Am Pilgrimí by Terry Hayes for Christmas and I canít put it down.
Seen this on a few forums, usually a laugh, apologies if it's already been done on here.
Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
Not seen a thread like this for a while, so what gigs are people going to in the near future?
I am just starting this as I suddenly have a load of gigs to go to that have only materialised over the last 6 weeks or so :greengrin
Tomorrow - The Bootleg Beatles, Wellington

I've always been a blade man (never enjoyed using electric razors) and just wondering what folk find best? Forgot my trusty Gillette Sensor when away recently and bought a Harry's razor as a stand-in. Found it a bit strange with the 'flat' blades rather than an angled blade but it may just require...

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.
Amarone in George Street was the venue for my niece's graduation dinner. I wasn't overly impressed, then again I never really expected to be if I'm honest. Lows were;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...

What's everyone else's best scran ?
I donít see a film thread on the front page. Seeing as Iíve been watching more this last wee while, thought Iíd start a thread for sharing recent watches, whether the films are new releases, old classics and everything in between.
Iíll kick off with ĎA star is borní which I watched on Amazon...
This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something
say:What is life
And then the next poster makes an acroynym out of last word of my sentence in response
say:Life is for elephants (but hopefully better:greengrin)
I have resolved to watch more documentaries during lockdown, so I'm looking for some recommendations.
Watched the Console Wars (Nintendo v Sega) and Apollo 11 on Sky Documentaries over the last couple of days.
Has anyone become a tourist in their youth during the covid pandemic? By this I mean doing things you used to do as a bairn but gave up as you got older. I've recently started collecting old subbuteo stuff and having a wee shot every now and again, still as much fun and a great stress reliever I...
Where is it available? I want to see it, but is it cinema, PPV or what?
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.
best two I've heard recently
My dad once told me i had a lot of potential, right before he pushed me off the balcony.
(not so much a joke, but I like it)
I was wondering if anyone uses MS Planner at all? I'm in the process of transferring project plans out of Trello in to Planner and there seems to be character limitations that make no sense.
Some of the checklists seem to accommodate more text than others. I've check the ms forums and can't find...

At the request of Alfiembra, here's the Driving Pet Peeve thread for frustrated motorists.
So, to kick it off.......
When you are just about to get into your car in a car park some Dumbo decides to draw in tight alongside your driver's door despite there being empty spaces everywhere around....
What is wrong if it's pronounced right, but is right if it's pronounced wrong?
Ok, itís past now and you need to dismantle the light show around your house.
Are you a ď put everything back in the box it came out ofĒ

What makes a good Santa? I was just watching shakin stevens video that was filmed in Lapland and the Santa there is obviously the daddy amongst the Santa community. I reckon heís natural, thatís his real hair and beard, the guy I saw at Cameron Toll a few years ago couldnít even keep his fake beard...
Having always been an avid reader, one of the glaring omissions from my reading experiences has been The Bible. Though it's been the cornerstone of Western civilization for two thousand years and is the biggest selling book in history, I had so far managed to avoid it. We had a Bible in the house...
We're all men of the 21st century :greengrin
Whats your fave aftershave then.
Paco Rabanne Invictus currently my flavour of the month. Red Rush YSL not bad either.
Hibs defeat my least favourite.
Must be some Brut fans on this site :greengrin
Interested in hearing what people would consider to be the best album of 2021, and yes I do insist on one album as opposed to a list!
I'm saying 'As Days Get Dark' by Arab Strap. Very rarely does a band reunite and put out their best album but it's an absolute corker.
There is a poster on the Facebook I Love Edinburgh page trying to find Alec and Susie Gibb from Shades pub. My, admittedly patchy memory thinks Shades was connected to Erich Schaedler, and, can anyone help?
White bread buttered with choice of decent chips.
Surely there won't be many no answers....
Inspired/stolen from the wonderful Off Menu podcast, thought I'd start a thread with one on here.
Water - still or sparkling?
Poppadoms or bread?
Sad to see the passing of Mike Nesmith, Steve Bronski and Mensi today.
As a big fan of the angelic upstarts the latter saddens me most. A band who released some absolute classic singles and a few brilliant albums. Hard to count how many times I'd seen them live.
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...
Is it possible to train a dog to growl, bark and generally get angry when it sees maroon.
Not asking for a friend.
I've been looking forward to this for years.
Loved all 3 original movies but fear i am going to dissapointed if the short trailers are anything to go by.
It looks like its just a reboot of the first film.
You plan more sprouts than spuds for the Sunday roast.
I thought I'd start a thread for our favourite short comedy sketches, new or old, that bring a smile to your face.
I'm gonna get the ball rolling with one that might bring more of a grimace to your face than a smile, but anyway....
The origin of the sound of the Bee Gees
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.
Anybody noticed a bigger drop in fuel consumption than the 1 or 2% that has been mentioned? I've just used my second tank and have averaged 3.6% less mpg than my previous. Same routine journeys as before.
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.

Where will he be staying in Edinburgh, do we think ? I have a spare room if he wants it.
Can't imagine the security problems this will bring to be honest.

I moved house this week, the house I've moved to is all electric.
I had trouble getting the heating to come on but that was resolved by changing the batteries in the timer thingy.
Thing is I/we can't find out how to get the hot water working.
We have a Fusion boiler, a danfoss thermostat...
