Enjoying one of my faves a fine bottle of Barolo, a birthday present this week.
Favourite white NZ Sauvignon blanc.
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...
Interested in hearing what people would consider to be the best album of 2021, and yes I do insist on one album as opposed to a list!
I'm saying 'As Days Get Dark' by Arab Strap. Very rarely does a band reunite and put out their best album but it's an absolute corker.
There is a poster on the Facebook I Love Edinburgh page trying to find Alec and Susie Gibb from Shades pub. My, admittedly patchy memory thinks Shades was connected to Erich Schaedler, and, can anyone help?
White bread buttered with choice of decent chips.
Surely there won't be many no answers....
Inspired/stolen from the wonderful Off Menu podcast, thought I'd start a thread with one on here.
Water - still or sparkling?
Poppadoms or bread?
Sad to see the passing of Mike Nesmith, Steve Bronski and Mensi today.
As a big fan of the angelic upstarts the latter saddens me most. A band who released some absolute classic singles and a few brilliant albums. Hard to count how many times I'd seen them live.
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...
Is it possible to train a dog to growl, bark and generally get angry when it sees maroon.
Not asking for a friend.
I've been looking forward to this for years.
Loved all 3 original movies but fear i am going to dissapointed if the short trailers are anything to go by.
It looks like its just a reboot of the first film.
You plan more sprouts than spuds for the Sunday roast.
I thought I'd start a thread for our favourite short comedy sketches, new or old, that bring a smile to your face.
I'm gonna get the ball rolling with one that might bring more of a grimace to your face than a smile, but anyway....
The origin of the sound of the Bee Gees
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.
Anybody noticed a bigger drop in fuel consumption than the 1 or 2% that has been mentioned? I've just used my second tank and have averaged 3.6% less mpg than my previous. Same routine journeys as before.
