Yesterday I was informed that in most of England when spoken good and food don't rhyme but door and poor do. I'm now confused as to whether it's good or food that rhyme with wood and can't comprehend that poor apparently rhymes with pour.
Has anyone else learned anything vaguely interesting in...
Since we are all confined to the house I thought we could all post a song or 2 that harks back to your heyday of living for the weekend. You can either just post the song or put an explanation if you wish. I'll start with 2:
Mid 00s went to an indie night with a...
I suspect like a few on here, I grew up with parents who liked country.
Worth acknowledging the passing of Kenny Rogers, who thanks to my folks provided a bit of a soundtrack, along with a lot of other country artists, in my formative years. I subsequently got into indie, hip-hop, techno and...
Sports channels have turned into the sporting equivalent of UK Gold.
When I've been driving around the local back roads there seems to be a lot more tyres being dumped than ever before.
Question for the builders on here is is there a reason that the construction industry as whole don't/can't use them for building houses?
Genuinely interested as I know that...
Iíve read that you can freeze unopened packs of sandwich meat, wrapped in foil to avoid freezer burn for up to six months. What I would like to know is how it might affect itís use by date. For example, if you freeze packs with a use by date of 1st April on 22nd March ( 9 days life ) and you open...
With the exception of admins, the last person to post on this thread is the all time greatest Hibs fan.
Childish I know but what the hell :devil:
So...in an effort to bring some cheer to these gloomy times, whats the best nickname you have heard, or even what was/ is your nickname now.
I'll start the ball rolling...was called suds at school and its stuck with me ever since...55years!
Is anyone able to recommend a company that can fully install an integrated dishwasher? Iíd need it plumbed in, integrated and also the electrical side of things done too. Iíve recently moved into a new build so hopefully wonít be too much of a job.
I'm attempting to organise a stag weekend here in Edinburgh in May (falls on Scottish Cup final day annoyingly!)
I'm an Edinburgh native but I've never really seen it as being a great location for stag parties in terms of available activities, most stuff tends to happen a few...

Just wondered what people had been too see at the flicks as of late?
I went and saw The Purge last night and thought it was very good.
Earth to Echo today and I was gutted it didn't live up to the expectation.
Transformers - good, knew what I was getting
22 jump street - poor
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...
Not seen this mentioned, and even more so, not seen anything on the news.
If your not aware he has done a documentary where he apparently is naming the person(s) who raped him and Corey Haim. Supposedly some very powerful people involved.
So powerful it appears no TV channel (including Netflix...
Over in Sydney for the first time. Obviously going to do the obvious things. Is there any special things recommended and a central Hibby bar worth visiting?
My favourite will always be Here comes the sun, but it probably isnít their greatest song. For me itís All you need is love, because thatís really all we need. Peace out.
Moving into a new house end of this month, Iím not a very DIY kind of guy so looking for tips on how to make painting rooms go well?

Heading to Koh Samui next month, any tips on what to do and how
to get around the island?
I use Apple Music to listen to music and for me it meets everything I need, but Iíve heard countless times over the last week that Spotify premium is so much better, mostly it seems from people compiling lists to play at events. Can anyone tell me what Iím missing out on, Iím quite willing to...
Anyone had experience of Virgin Media laying cables in the street. They've started round our way and it's a mess, not only with the way they've left the street but also their traffic management.
They start on our road today and we have monoblock on the road so will be interesting to see how the...
A job has been advertised that is a promoted post in a school. I really fancy going for it as I meet all the essential and desirable criteria with ease.
The problem is that I am horrendous at interviews. Can anyone recommend an interview coach etc? Thanks in advance.
What a cracking wee film. Thereís not many new ways to tell the story of the plight of the Jews in WW2, but I think this film manages it.
Received a parking ticket yesterday from P4 parking when helping a family member move. Has anyone else had a ticket from this mob and did you ignore or pay?
I've no idea how quickly they ticketed the car as I must have been out of it 10 minutes going by the time on the ticket
Does anyone know of any good TV and BB deals? My current contract with BT is coming to an end on 2nd March so I've started looking at Sky and Virgin (available in my area).
Anyone work for any companies wit special offers? Any help appreciated!
Does anyone have much knowledge of the changes to overdrafts and the rates being charged on them that are being proposed to come in next month?
The FCA has made a ruling that people exceeding their overdraft limit should not be shafted as hard as they have been in the past - and Iíve heard that...
There used to be a good 'what are you reading thread' somewhere on the forums but it's dropped off the front pages. I thought it might be a good idea to resurrect the idea and start a new thread for reviews, inspiration etc
I've just started The Body by Bill Bryson. Similar to his A Short...
A thread to post things you remember from days gone by. I love nostalgia and often take to you tube to reminisce with tv programmes from my youth but also love music from growing up in the 80s and 90s. Post what you want whether its tv adverts, clothes or sweeties its just a bit of fun.
Anyone here caught the mortgage overpayment bug? We remortgaged in the summer and started overpaying by £281 per month, just received our annual mortgage statement today and we've knocked a whopping eight and a half years off our repayments.
I'm thinking about putting some more into it. Anyone...
Anyone know about how to do this? Can you buy software to do yourself at home or better getting it done by someone who knows what they are doing?
I have a stack of VHS tapes and smaller video camera cassettes that Iíd like to transfer into digital format and into a you tube account or similar so...
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.
About to change my car to automatic, basically panicking as Iíve had a manual car forever. Any horror stories or is it easy to make the change?
Does anyone have this in their home? Sick of paying Virgin £100 a month.
How does it work? Do you need to buy a box and then get a provider for the channels?
Looking for a bit of advice. Been cleaning the scuttle drain on duster as passenger footwell was soaking. Does anyone know if there's only one drain as the screenwash reservoir is covering where I think it would be.
After years and years of freezing my toes off following Hibs I finally stopped being tight and bought a pair of DM's last week. Wore them to the game today and the Christmas markets yesterday - no cold toes.
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?
Anyone tried this? Tried it earlier, just tastes like diet Irn Bru, disappointing. Had hoped it was just marketing, talking about a new and undiscovered recipe etc and it would actually be similar to the old recipe. Doubt Iíll even finish my bottle far less but anymore.
