Re: A Stroll round 1960s Saltcoats

Its sad to read all these articles on the shops in Hamilton street that I knew so well, grew up with. There wasn't an empty shop in the whole street. What a difference now. Hamilton street Is full of pulled down shutters, and now the double windows of the closed sports shops is a real miss to the st...

Re: Happy birthday - Glenshena

Thanks to all for your birthday wishes. I had a lovely lunch with family in our favourite sea food restaurant. But It says a lot when my gifts this year were track suits and clothes fit for my phisiotherapy sessions. When I look back to my early life with no TV, no telephone, no car and think what w...

Re: Sinner the Winner

What a nerve wracking final,lasting nearly four hours! But he won in the end and he's only 22! A real pleasure to watch. I'm sure he'll be winning many more in the future.
Well done Jannik! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Milan -- La Scala Opera House

On New Years Eve I was treated to a night out by my grandaughter to Milans famous Opera House, La Scala. It was a ballet performance, Coppelia, and was very enjoyable. I had been there twice before, but it's always a pleasure to go back. We took the train from Como to Milan and then the subway to Pi...

Re: What's the latest movie you've seen?

Took the grandchildren to see Willy Wonka. A magical Chocolate maker. Wonderful scenery and special effects, but to see the handsome Hugh Grant reduced to a meter high gnome with long green hair and white eyebrows was quite offputting.

Davis Cup

It was wonderful to watch the Davis Cup Tournament in Malaga last week.
The Italian team played so well, especially Jannik Sinner, who at 22 is proving to be the worlds No. 1 tennis player.
It was 47 years ago since we won the last Davis Cup Trophy, hope it wont be another 47 till we win the next one!
