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...
Took the bus from Corstorphine today to Shandwick Place then walked full length of Princes Street into the St James and then to the foot of the walk. The first time I have been along Princes Street in a couple of years, what a shambles it is. Never realised there were so many empty shops and what...
Hi folks looking for restaurant or pub suggestions here,
Meeting up with my sister and her husband in Edinburgh on a weekday lunchtime into early evening.They are big zimmerspoon fans because my brother-in-law only drinks draft ale, and would want to eat there also.
my response being, it's a rare...
Aaron Ramsey kills again.
Formed a great pairing with Jerry Stiller as George's parents in Seinfeld.
Following on from the garden shed thread.
I ordered a greenhouse in June 2021. Was delivered and erected in March 2022!
I had done the base etc and I am delighted with my purchase.
If you have an old greenhouse not being used it may be a good time to advertise it. The delays for new ones are...

Strange request but Iím trying to source some Pepto Bismol, it appears to be no longer available in the U.K. & possibly Europe. It is available in America so Iím wondering if any of my fellow American Hibees can help out or anyone going on a trip to America can help out.
Hope this isnít an...

I need to be myself,I can't be no one else
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.
This one is for Railcards.
Railcards normally cost £30 for one year (or £70 for three years on some cards), but enter the code...
Whats your favourite?
Enjoying one of my faves a fine bottle of Barolo, a birthday present this week.
Favourite white NZ Sauvignon blanc.
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...
There's been a couple of threads like this before but you can't beat a good discussion about beer.
Currently a huge fan of:
William Bros Seven Giraffes
Timothy Taylor Landlord
Cairngorm Trade Winds
Stewart Pentland IPA
Fallen Smokehouse Porter
Needing some recommendations because during my recent covid isolation, I've completed Netflix's back catalogue. Really enjoyed Mo Gilligan's most recent special, Jimmy Carr, Jim Jeffries (unfortunate name for the big guy) and Frankie Boyle are my usual sort of thing... Please help if you've any...
I remember first getting the book from a discount book place beside M&S Princes St in 1994. Never re read a book to many times or recommended it to say many people.
When it was announced they were making a film & using the guy who was in Shallow Grave I wasnt that enthused...
Perhaps not a household name, but the frontman of punk band the Members:
I never tire of listening to 'Sound of the Suburbs' even all these years later. One of the greatest singles of that, or indeed...
I ordered oven cleaner from amazon.
When it arrived , my wife put the unopened box on the couch and went to work.
When i came in, i noticed the the bottom of the box was soaking.
The oven cleaner was leaking and it has basically ruined my leather couch.
Its taken the top layer of leather off...
After a few jars tonight it got me thinking, what is the best cover?
So there's me, the girlfriend and her 6 year old and we fancya week away in the summer, but this would be the first family holiday for me and I'm looking to try and get a bit of advice on places/hotels that offer good entertainment for the bairn but also somewhere we can unwind also.
Love my wife to bits, sheís a great wife and mother.
Her family however, I just donít respect them after incident upon incident surrounding her older sister. She is from Ireland and my wife was over for her younger sisterís hen at the weekend and it was a disaster. Another significant incident...
RIP Mark Lanegan.
Sad loss - another lead singer from grunge in the 90's gone.
Seems itís harder than ever right now. I have plenty time on my hands to sort out and job hunt (probably looking to go late this year) but the impression Iím getting is employers arenít really doing sponsorship for visas just now?
Any experts on here any tips or opinions on whether that is the...
So I'm a member at PureGym at Fort Kinnaird, and it's always stupidly busy and it's mega frustrating. Someone was telling me it's currently the 4th busiest PureGym in the UK! Which is mental when you consider London, Manchester etc..
I've been having a look online at other gyms within a...
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
Pretty disappointing today.
Operation recovery, Fine glass or two of red, Stones documentary on the box, marinated chicken wings and associated sides, pretty chill.
What you up to? Coping?
Music has always been a huge part of my life but thereís only ever been 1 moment in my life when I just stood back and thought wow. For me it was at the Calton Studios in the mid 90s, it was a pretty normal club night and I was there as I was was most weeks and a band called Force Mass Motion came...
Was tempted to put this in the pet peeves thread or the you know your getting old when thread as I’m essentially moaning about the lost art of the music video. I miss the days when a bit of thought or humour was put into a music video.
What’s everyone’s favourite music video? A few of mine are:...
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.
No, not a new player but my Xmas pressie. I suffer quite badly from the cold and last night was the first time I got to try out the vest and I have to say itís a game changer!
No more wearing layers of clothing for me so now watching the footy Iím just bored instead of freezing and bored lol
I need a bog standard yale type lock fitted to a door that's never had one fitted before.
Do any dotnetters do this type of work, in Leith?
Has anyone had something similar done who can give me recommendation and an indication of the cost?
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...
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?
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...
Another year and another plate of absolute ***** served up at the in-laws. Absolute *****!
How do you break it to the wife that you simply can't stomach it every year?
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
ď just grab them and stuff them into a box/cupboard till next yearĒ sort of person?
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...
