  2. Renaming streets

    There has been talk in recent days about re-naming some streets in Glasgow, in order to remove the names of merchants and others who made their money off the backs of the slaves that they owned. So.... 1. Should be there a similar move in Edinburgh? 2. One for the historians, which I'm not...

  3. Wildlife

    During the current circumstances I am up a lot earlier than I would normally be, picking up work stuff. I know we are getting into spring but it feels like the wildlife, the birds, are far louder and chirpier than usual. It is an absolute racket outside the house just now! I stay in an...

  5. Vegetarianism/Veganism

    Is anyone here a vegetarian or vegan? I would imagine a few are. I've been thinking about trying to go veggie for years on and off, but have never taken the plunge, the main reason being the restricted diet and faffing aboot. It's so much easier to be vegetarian now, due to the wide variety of...

  6. Coronavirus

    Potential to shut down football? Surely massively populated events would have a potentially massive risk of spreading the virus? Can see the Euros being postponed especially with so many different cities hosting them. Hopefully there’s a cure found very soon.

    Anyone a member? Is it worth the money. I'm in London but in Edinburgh quite a bit on business these days. So I'd use the venues down south much more but not exclusively. Interesting selection of single cask on their shop but doesn't say which distilleries.

It contributes absolutely nothing to society, drives up housing prices and is basically a means of making other people buy you a house, unless...
