Right, outing myself as a bit of a dweeb here...
Anyone still playing pokemon go?
Just completed a mega raid and caught a shiny blastoise.
Anyone know if the Red Squirrel is open again post-lockdown?
Ta in advance.
In amongst the doom and gloom of pandemic and second waves, this made me smile.

Got an old ditty in my head the other day, remember it from being a kid
Think it went to the tune of Rule Britannia, but remember it ended with
ďLawsons Sausages are up to 2/6ď
Hope itís not rude, anyone remember it
Great to see West Lothian band the Snuts doing the Strongbow advert on TV. I used to work with one of the lads Dad, I think they are destined for great things.
Looking through old family photos and there is one from 60/70's in the Buchanan Hotel. Anyone shed any light on where this was? Think it was in Leith somewhere Cheers
Its been ridiculous weather past few days down here in the south east of england, currently 31c.
Far to hot for me, how do you guys handle it and yes I know most on here wont see much sun 😄
Moving house at the end of the month and I'm going to create a Pub Shed. Has anyone else got one, been to one etc?
Very open to suggestions and ideas.
Needing name suggestions, it's going to be Hibernian related.
A thread for unusual but true stories viz
That Hugo Boss designed the Nazis' uniforms in the 1930's ?
There was a thread on here about headphones a while ago that I took a real interest in as it’s something that interests me. I love listening to music and believe it can only be listened to loud. I have neighbours on both sides so I can’t play music loud so headphones are my best option. I scrolled...
Following on from other film threads, what are your favourite 'low budget' films?
I'll start with
Dead man's shoes
Street cat named Bob
Im looking for a killer C.V and somebody to help me create it
Anybody used anybody or reccomend anybody?
Admins please close thread if considered inappropriate. Just passing it on.
Extremely sophisticated scam going about this morning. Definitely Danske bank customers but possibly all banks. You get a message saying a payment hasnít been taken eg O2 and to click here. As soon as you touch it the...
Following on from the Beautiful Tracks thread, I thought of a few classical pieces that would fit the bill, but that thread went in a different direction, and anyway classical music is such a broad category I think it deserves a thread of its own. So, if you have a favourite classical tune or...
I'm sure many of you will have enjoyed a pint or 2 in here before a game, and may still do. If you are not aware it is at risk of closing for good due to some ridiculous reasons cited for not allowing them an outside licence. All info can be found here -...
Any fans?i got into him heavily in the early 90's and picked up all of his albums ..most people might only know him from the 1978 hit Fool(If You Think Its Over) but all of his records contain a ton of great tunes ...
Does anyone here live in a development where there's a parking management company.
The small estate where I live (Edinburgh) has residents parking and over the years it's got that busy (through multiple car ownership) that some residents can't get parked in the evening. The surrounding area is...
Has anyone used a private Genealogist to trace their family tree ?
Any examples of total cost?
I've just asked for prices from a couple of people listed on the ASGRA website but would imagine it would be difficult to estimate the time needed. They charge £25 per hour plus agreed expenses if...
Anyone haggled with DFS or Sofology for a new sofa? If so how much did you get off the sofa?
Anyone's event postponed/cancelled due to covid-19 and if so has anyone received a refund from ticketmaster yet?
Had 4 tickets booked for Josh Taylor's fight back in May which obviously didn't happen. Logged onto my ticketmaster account and can get a credit note for any future events but no sign...
To follow on from the Beatles/Stones/Who threads....I've been listening to REM for the first time in years and I'm blown away by how good some of their stuff still sounds. But to pick one song is almost impossible - for me you could pick 4 songs each of Document, Green and Automatic For The People...
Iím considering buying a laptop and Iím pretty clueless as to whatís needed so since Iím on a bit of a budget is was hoping there where people more clued up than myself That could give me a few pointers or recommendations?
Iíll be using it for general family use, with home schooling going to be...
This has started to bother me somewhat, every month I get an email from Google showing me my activity over the preceding month. Where Iíve been, what places Iíve visited (obviously not much during lockdown) how far Iíve driven, walked, cycled etc.
I understand that by allowing them to access...
Just watching an ABBA countdown on one of the music channels. They started off as a bit of a novelty act, but they really werenít. Theyíre one of the few bands that have managed to transcend the generations and are probably more popular now than they were back then. Some of the figures around album...
Continuing the recent trend. Whatís everyoneís favourite The Who song?
The classics like My Generation, I Canít Explain, 5:15, Who Are You, Pinball Wizard etc etc stand up against any other bands IMO.
Some of my favourites, although not necessarily their best songs, are The Seeker, Pictures...
I was out in the garden today and I noticed a bird flying into a gap between the bricks and the wood at the top of the wall in the back garden. Iíve never noticed before but there appears to be a series of vents along this area, I then noticed another bird flying into one of the other vents and I...
Well it's been talked about on the Beatles thread so why not.
For me Honky Tonk Women will always be top but honourable mentions for a few ballads, Angie, Moonlight Mile, Wild Horses and Memory Motel.
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.
I'm not sure if this topic has been done before on here, almost certainly I guess, but I can't remember it. It was a Radio 4 show for a while and the Guardian are currently doing it.
So, well, (:greengrin) it's one film acknowledged as a classic that you haven't seen. And maybe explain whether...
I have a rotary hammer drill with a dodgy power lead that I would like repaired if possible but i am having no luck finding anyone who does it.
Can anyone suggest a repair shop that can repair it.
I borrowed it from the brother in law who hates lending tools and I think I have damaged the lead...
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...
Just watched it and I can't figure out the melody that Jack was playing on the piano when Kaya gets back to the house. I know it but just can't put a name to it and it's driving me nuts. HEEEEEEEELP!
The Oscars seem to dictate what we consider to be the best acting performances, but Iím not sure everyone will agree with that. Whatís the best performance youíve seen in a film.
I loved James Mcvoy in Filth and Tom Cruise in Interview with a vampire.
My street who generally do lots of things together are planning a street party within your own gardens, decorating houses, bunting etc. Anyone else 😁
Iíll go for
torture me all you want....
IMO part of Kraftwerk one of the best bands of all time has died. Thanks for the inspiration RIP.
Hopefully this isn't against the rules... I thought it would be good to raise awareness of local deals, both so we can take advantage of them and also help support local businesses.
Couple to start:
Thistly Cross (Cider/Beer) doing 20% off and free delivery...
Who's been watching this?
I've just finished episode 2 of 4 and I'm very impressed.
The lead actor is perfect in the role. Totally awkward and out of place, as her character is, everything about her screams "wrong". It's pitiful, almost painful. Quite brilliant casting, imo.
Sent an iphone away to get repaired. We've been unable to remove find my phone and now we have unrepaired phone sent back. Why do they need this removed before a smashed and not working phone can be looked at?
Would be interested to see what others consider to be their favourite top 10 TV series that they considered to be must see viewing. I know there's a best TV thread but I thought it might be useful to see lists as it will enable us to identify people who have similar tastes and maybe find something...
