  1. I didn't realise the train had a time ban for using my concession, good to know. I was annoyed with First Bus the other day, had a Dr appointment and looked on line for the bus times, only to find out when I got to the bus stop that the tmetable there was different and the correct one, considered complaining to them but thought what's the point, it's a vendetta against us auldies

  2. Willie I wish you well in your new home. My daughter lived in Doonfoot for a few years and I thoroughly enjoyed my wee days oot visiting her. The beach is so much quieter along that way and many a walk I had on it. I miss my wee jaunts, it's not quite the same visiting her in Clarkston. (That's no a hint for an invite ;) )

  3. Sorry foks forgot the link http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-17601286

    Thomas at first when I started reading your post I thought it was tongue in cheek

    'Could it also be pressures of the job?

    The lonliness of his calling? It can be the hardest and most thankless role within modern secular society.'

    I'm sure he must have been very aware of what the job entailed !

    I think greed had more to do with this than anything else, if he wanted to help marginalised people then why did he pocket all the money and not put it into the coffers of the church ?

  4. Apart from at the Hidden Lane Gallery I don't think so. She did exhibit in her life time at various levels so I guess anything that exists is in private collections, I don't think she was well known enough for anything to be in likes of a museum. The exhibit is mostly drawings and sketches plans for paintings, but some private folk have loaned some paintings to the exhibit so there are a few.

    I have worked in Finnieston for 9 years and only went down the Hidden Lane last week for the first time, I had lunch in the tearoom, but didn't have time to see what else is there, I noticed they are not very well signed.

  5. On Channel 4, Sundays at 9. Anybody watching it? Episode 6 was on last night, and the ending was just, well, WHAAAAAAAAAAAATTTT??!! :lol: It started kinda slowly, but by the end of episode 2 we were hooked.


    Didn't think I would like this so gave it a miss. I watched another programme last week that was on for four nights , it was called "One Night" I loved the theme music at the beginning but cannot find any info on it, anyone see/hear it know what it was.
