Re: My Favourite ( non-Three Towns ) Place

The state of Johnson senior yesterday in the media :shock: - the apple didn’t fall far from the tree did it. We just have to suck it up that they are above the law.

Re: My Favourite ( non-Three Towns ) Place

I think sailing into Brodick Harbour used to be my favourite but these days, I think the Isle of Samos in Greece might just pip it at the post. I love Arran but it has changed so much over the last 10 or so years, it’s not the place I remember. In saying that, we might just have a long weekend there...

Re: Chernobyl

Of course it was earlier Jean - now I remember my brother Ian was still living at home - all I remember was it was scary😂. Doomwatch was another scary TV series.

Re: Chernobyl

Jean, I remember Quatermass too - it was a 1979 tv mini series. IMDB had this as a description - In the near future, civilization has broken down to the barest fragment of recognizable life.

Re: Ardrossan - On This Day In History

I remember my dad talking about this Hughie. He was what would be called today, an anti vaxxer- but my mum made the whole family go and get vaccinated at the pop up clinic at the Castle Craigs. I had to get all my injections/vaccinations as an adult - except smallpox - we needed the certificate to g...

Re: What are you reading now?

Just finished Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Started it a few months ago before lockdown - I thought it would be an easy train read going up and down to Glasgow but I found it hard to get into so set it aside. Picked it up again this week and couldn’t put it down. Set in Glasg...

Re: Coronavirus pandemic

I fear the worse, personally I'd close the border but......anyway boris knows best :evil: Me too Bonzo - but I remember during the foot and mouth outbreak they did close the border - so it can be done. However, border control is a Westminster function, but closing the roads to all but essential tra...
