  1. I see Big Col Quaner has signed for St Mirren. A bit of a legend in these parts for his exploits in the play-off semi at Hillsborough a few years back. He can definitely be a real handful when he’s on his game.
  2. Stolen from elsewhere: One sunny day in late January 2021, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Trump." The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr Trump is no longer President and no longer resides here." The old man said, "Okay", and walked away. The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Trump." The Marine repeated
  3. I don’t know about Scotland or the EPL, but according to what people are saying around here, the EFL have agreed that points per game could be used to finish the season if every club had played at least 75% of its games.
  4. Personally, I'd go back to the carpet fitter & ask them to correct it. If it had been stretched correctly that shouldn't have happened as far as I know.
  5. I got hold of a bottle of Benriach Smoky 10 just before Xmas by way of trying something a bit different & it's very good. I've also been shopping around to find something that I haven't tried before, ideally smoky although I'm not totally locked into it having to be. I was going to go for the Kilkerran mentioned above but everywhere seems to have sold out. Has anyone tried any of the Smokehead brand? I can't make my mind up if it's worth forking out £50 or so or if it's just a bit gimmicky.
  6. It was the same here. Different time I know but I grew up on the edge of the Pennines & we’d always get one or two heavy falls a year at least. My dad worked in a factory across town & just wouldn’t have got paid if he didn’t get there. I can’t ever remember the buses not running & that’s up & down some bloody steep hills I’m sure it probably wasn’t quite as rose-tinted as I remember it but I’m sure the general attitude was shrugging the shoulders not world falling apart. My only memory of the snow causing me any real problems was when I couldn’t get into town in tim
  7. I think I might have shared my experience earlier on here & with the obvious caveats that I'm not a financial adviser, everyone is different, blah blah... However, I started to become seriously ill when I was in my early 50s & by 54 realised that my days were numbered being able to hold down any sort of serious (as in earning enough to pay the bills) job. I'd paid into various pensions all my working life & totted up that if I took no lump sum at all, I'd maybe get £7 or £8K pa (the job I was in at the time paid about £25K pa, & that was big a drop from where I'd been pre-
  8. “There’s only one of my kids that’s kept up the royal traditions of abuse, greed, and debauchery, so I’ve decided I’m leaving the country to him.”
  9. I hope that works out for you soon. Our newest grandson recently arrived & is in the unfortunate position of having one set of Leeds supporting grandparents so I feel your anxiety on this matter 😂
  10. The 'tie-dye' shirt is legendary...you still see people wearing them! It's so bad it's brilliant. I remember when it came out it was one of those 'head in your hand' moments but we all kind of fell in love with it. There was some sort of marketing thingy by the club a while ago about which retro shirts people would buy if they started reselling them & I'm pretty sure that one did well. It also coincided with 2 legendary HTFC seasons: 1991-2; finished third, f***ked up in the play-offs (our first go at them) by conceding a last-minute goal at home to Peterborough & the following ye
  11. I was left back. In the dressing room as a kid & in the pub when I got older.
  12. I'd love to show you mine but it's very small & I'd feel a bit embarrassed sharing photos online.
