Me too - but I also wondered if Andy could ever play at that level for that duration again, and I seriously doubt it.

Re: Threetowners 20th Birthday Celebrations

Re: Ardrossan Academy Primary building

Well, two weeks today sees our reunion celebrations - hope the weather is as kind as it is today. Iain has very kindly linked a map with the meeting point for our walk around the old ICI site. Meeting in the car park at 4pm - at the following point: http://stevenstonconservation.org/LNR/forumphotos/...

Re: Ardrossan Beef and Ale Pot Roast.

Brian, I’ve also done this in the oven at a low heat for 3 hours - although a lot less stock - just an oven “pot roast” really. My mum used to boil it and make soup - cutting up the meat when cold and having it with Ayrshires and cabbage - starving now :lol:
