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.

Taking my youngest daughter to see Billie Eilish in June. Iíve looked at trains as I donít drive but I think thereís a a train at 10.29 meaning weíd end up missing part of the show. Heading back to Edinburgh after.
Itís almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but Iím guessing that at some point in time weíre all struggling to lose weight.
I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.

So, to kick it off.......

CAMRA pub of the year for Lothians yet again. Gonna need a new wall for all their certificates! To keep it going for so long at such a high standard is pretty impressive. First port of call when I come home next month.
Following the death of SC, I want to ask the Hibee community their opinion.
Mines is Brosnan, but that was probably generational - that and Tomorrow Never Dies is IMO the best Bond film.

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 got one of these? Iím thinking of buying but there seems to be a large number of different options and Iím not sure which is the best option. Iím thinking of buying this one, not necessarily with Stella.
Iíve been trying to hire a car for 4 days over the school holidays, pick-up and drop off in North Edinburgh but Iím being quoted £1600 for 4 days, seems absolutely insane. If I pick up in Newcastle and drop off in Edinburgh itís £400, which makes no sense to me. Tried a few places and struggling...

Not sure if there is already an existing thread...thought it might be a good idea to start a thread with money saving codes given increased costs on many items.
