  1. Robertson the cobbler beside Holdgates shut. Now another vape shop!
  2. Paddy Power stream was great for about 5 mins now blank. Radio Scotland for me then.
  3. Looking ahead to a potential Swedish tie the SAS flights Edinburgh > Stockholm currently £285. Flights timed well, trains to Norkopping cheap, quick and frequent. Expect the flights to be unaffordable by the time a tie is confirmed.
  4. Upvotes for the Titanic and open top bus tour. I'd advise prebooking a tour of the Titanic museum to avoid queuing. If it's nice weather the Botanic garden is a nice place to doze off the hangover. The surrounding Queens Quarter is a nice part of town.
  5. Brennans - gone. Was the place to be when I first started going to pubs. Shoehorned in on a Friday and Saturday. Latterly a total dump with no punters. Now open as The Venue (?).
  6. With the expanded format there's just too many games, sides can try and draw their way to the knockout stages with predictably dull results. The big teams' games have been disappointing so far. Iceland have been quite entertaining and Romania v Albania was surprisingly fun. Changed over from the France v Switzerland snoozefest.
  7. Belgium or Germany to win. Will be cheering Norn Iron, hissing at Bale/ Wales and largely indifferent to England. Agree with Blue Heaven regarding Hodgson but couldn't bring myself to wish them success.
  8. This insulation business in Perth smacks of the same thing. Out voted to have the roof done in a flat we were trying to sell (other tenants were council so repairs got voted through by the council). Our surveyor confirmed there was fug all wrong with it and further insulation would have negligible effect. We will have to fork out for this yet to the tune of £2700. Sorry, slightly off topic there.
  9. Well this seems like good value for money. Might illuminate the PLAGUE OF BEGGERS I suppose.
  10. Sh!tcan it. If you bought it new it's 8 to 15 years old and should owe you nothing. A refurbished PC or laptop from somewhere like 3000 RPM in scumdee is pretty affordable and more than adequate for general use.
  11. The town will be full of bored couples reluctantly spending money. Restaurants will be offering only set menus - same scran as usual for double the price... plus a glass of fizz.
  12. Done it ad hoc a few times with new accounts but can't really be arsed making a habit of it. In other news... Leicester are as high as 5/1 today. Crazy.
