For a variety of reasons no luck yet). Ive a massive garden, live in between the sea & forrests for walks & work...
Was talking to my dad earlier tonight and the subject somehow turned to memories of unexpected and shocking deaths of celebrities we each remember. Being born in the late 1970s, the only death I can think of which was truly shocking at the time was Princess Diana in 1997. I vividly remember it...

As a techno junkie I always viewed them as a bit charty for my liking but they really werenít. They never sold out and they always stuck to their beliefs, I remember them walking off stage at rezerection because the sound was ****. From songs like Charlie and out of space to breathe and smack my...
What are the oddball or OCD things that you just canít help yourself from doing.
For reasons I canít explain I have to have any thing with a digital gauge reading an even number whether itís the volume on the radio/tv or the temperature or even the speed on cruise control when Iím driving. If...

Despite being very much Scottish, and hoping for an Italy win tonight, I still think Three Lions is one of the best ever songs specifically written for a football team/event, and enjoy listening to it. Anyone else?
I live next to the ferryboat which is quite rough like, what are the worst pubs in Edinburgh in your opinion?

I watched Apollo 13 last night for the millionth time for no reason other than I love the film; the jeopardy, the science, the problems and solutions and possibly one of the most tense waits in cinema waiting for the radio blackout to be...
Surely the greatest female singer Scotland has ever produced? I didnít mind the Eurythmics, but her solo stuff is absolutely epic and the videos are masterpieces. I canít believe Iíve just realised this.
Surely by now it should be a bit warmer? Is there a reason itís still been so cold?
Glaswegians have been left in stitches by a new John Lewis cuddly toy which has been given a very questionable name 😂🙈

Just stuck together a playlist of old Oasis b-sides. They were unstoppable back on the day. What a band.
May the sixth is apparently world password day. I've no idea who decides this stuff, but list below all the passwords you use so we can offer each other advice on whether they're secure enough. You should also add your date of birth, the name of your first pet and your mother's maiden name just...
