  1. whee-hee...bhoys oh bhoys - well that wisnae part of yer plan wiz it!!! Good stuff lads. COYS!
  2. Went to Uni in Paisley 35yrs ago (was a college it was back then). Paisley wasn't a great place back then (understatement - though the Cellar Bar and the Wee Howf were good for a bevvie or ten between lectures) - but I recently met up with a close Buddy friend of mine from back then and she advised me not to bother going into the town as it was just horrid - and she's living their these days. Sad,
  3. And so in the end a change in circumstances meant that we had to cancel our trip to Inverness and our overnight stay in Perth. Instead we got ourselves 2 nights deluxe room B&B in the Cameron House Hotel for £196. Now that was one heck of a deal. Absolutely tops, Brilliant stay. My (English) Mrs found herself just loving the place, the Scots staff, the food, the hill walking and the scenery. And on way home as we headed down the M74 towards the noise and 'way too busy' South of England she did actually say that she'd think about us moving to Scotland in a few years time. In years (and years...) past living in Scotland was not an option. The girl is getting it...taken her 25 yrs mind. And a sidenote - we had lunch in the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel (in Luss). Lovely bar and splendid food.
  4. was thinking that the volley was good - but not *that* good - but the first time control of the cross, back flick over head and turn and volley - hmmm - yes - pretty darn good. The keepie-uppie bit takes me back to Davie Cooper's ball-juggling goal against Celtic in a Cup Final many moons ago. Now that was a very special goal - neat player Davie Cooper was.
  5. In the same vein I mind when my college cafe started selling Pot Noodles soon after they had hit the shelves and were 'new' to us. The wifey serving made a real fuss about getting the right amount of water in the pot; making sure the foil lid was neatly back in place while the noodles were 'prepared'; and gave us instructions on when it would be ready to consume
  6. Looks like I'm going to have to visit Murrays bakery to try out their Scotch Pies - being best in the country as they have just been voted!
  7. Had a look at menus - all look just our sort of place (though Cafe Tabou could do with taking down it's Christmas Menu...). Sent to Mrs Me for her vetting and selection (I go where I am told to go and do what I am told to do. I can eat what I want - but only if I share...)
  8. Mrs Me decided that we didn't need anything fancy - so booked Premier Inn for £56 for the two of us - £74 if we want breakfast, That's good enough for me. Thanks to all for all the suggestions. Part II - somewhere nice to eat. Putting aside Indian, Chinese, Italian and chains such as Cafe Rouge - unless there is somewhere of that sort that is very special. My cousin who lives in Blairgowrie will no doubt know of places (and we'll be meeting up with him and his wife) but they'll always like to try somewhere new they maybe haven't tried or thought of before
  9. Checked our date and can get a double room at Murrayshall for £89 for the night we'd be staying. £106 with breakfast. Sounds good? Premier Inn in town centre gets good reviews mind...£74 in breakfast
  10. For me and the Mrs. Heading down from Inverness and she wants to have a look around Perth. So could stop a bit further north (Dunkeld House Hotel anyone?) and then stop off in town, What about between Dunkeld and Perth? Will have a look at Murrayshall and Royal George, OK with Prem Inns but would tend to stay in these sort of places a fair bit so looking for something different for a change
  11. Looking for a nice hotel or guest house to stay for a night early Feb. In town centre or within maybe 10-15mins walk. Suggestions please. Under a £100 would be nice
  12. To be honest I don't think he said anything particularly wrong or inappropriate in the first instance. The comparison he made was in the specific legal context of 'guilty' seeking 'truth'. He quite clearly was not comparing Hillsborough as a disaster with Ched Evans involvement in a sexual assault; clearly also neither was he commenting on the relative validity of the 'convictions'. Doesn't take away that for me Gordon Taylor is still too much of an weaseling apologist.
  13. Since when were prices in supermarkets and stores consistent across the UK in any case. Never mind local normal fluctuations the individual stores know their local markets and so do the pricing and loss leaders etc accordingly. Besides price fluctuations and differentials in the small stuff wouldn't really get noticed - if an increase were to happen folks would get use to that new baseline and normal fluctuations around that would commence, And for bigger more expensive stuff - I hadn't noticed the internet being too bothered about boundaries.
