  1. Faery pools on skye, was still wet when photo was taken
  2. Also have the latest 'shetland' book, looking forward to that
  3. its great to be back. We are in a class with fewer people (obviously) but have a couple of people completely new to painting and its lovely just hearing them start on their journey. Its week 3 and they are moving into the 'hard graft-hate this bloody painting' stage. Next week just one or two spots of paint will suddenly pull it all together and they will fall back in love with what they are doing.
  4. Covid compliant corporate hospitality at Firhill
  5. the current restrictions appear to be having an effect, the rolling average days to a doubling of infected numbers has gone from 8 days three weeks ago to 35 days yesterday. R number must be getting close to 1.

  9. I know its stretching the 'west end' but if you love Greek food then you are in for a delight. cannot praise this restaurant enough, the food is absolutely sensational
  10. Thornwood pub, 1939 - actually looked identical right up to 1980s
  11. went and purchased a couple of classic DVDs after reading this, Rear Window - which has been watched and is as magnificent as remembered, and Citizen Kane - never seen and a treat planned for tonight
  12. Crown office has contacted the BBC over kirsty Wark and another female reporter. Possible contempt of court
  13. Possibly one of the most appalling pieces of TV ever produced by Kirtsy Wark last night. Her retrial of Alex Salmond brought her and BBC journalism down to the gutter level, straight out of the Daily Mail playbook. Not a fan of this guy but he does a good job analysing last night's disgrace https://wingsoverscotland.com/the-endless-trial/
