    Actual book club?

    Could we naw use a big screen TV and a camera hooked onto someones laptop? I don't care too much about location....as long it's a place that's got Italian ice cream, marshmallah soss and big rows of sweetie jars.

    New Statues for the Gorbals..

    I love it....it's perfect sais it all..... a million memories in that group of statues for every mother that exists that watched their wee yin, boy or girl, dress up with mums high heels on. What do you think though? Never mind what we all think....... Is there one with girls in it coming up in the future? I hope so. I'm not so sure Glesca boys will think too much of it but I hope they smile fer ahm betting every single one of them wore their maws shoes at one time in their lives. (and lippy)

    Who has actually gone from here that was ancient. I saw Rumpole of the Old bailey the other night and thought..... where is that ole so and so. Oor Rhumphole. Wan day there, next day ......homosexual! Like a magicians magic trick. Also, his lovverly lassie. I saw her poopping in the other day and wondered if she was doing well. See! Yi think the internet is nothing and yet there are people that come in and oot yer electronic page and zap yi right between the eye. Nice, nice people. So, to at least two ancient posters that are maybe peeking in every now and again... How are you two?
  7. I read The Secret River first Pat. The other one was an adjunct to the first one but magically appeared in the library at the same time all wrapped up with my name on it. I'm naw gonnie say too much about the part when she actually finds "her river" but yill need a hankie. I don't believe I have watched the Minghella's(imagine the teasing he must have got in school)TV drama you are talking about. I'll need to look out for it. This wee gem of a book will have you tittering away like crazy. Bill Brysons The life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid Absolutely brilliant and I'm only a quarter ways through. It's naw a book fer the bedroom cause yill be shaken the headboard and suppressing giggles 'till you put the book down.
  8. Thank gawd this book wisnae aboot politics, doe's dosey doein wae bears ur dugs baws. I wid need a camaflaje jaiket and hard helmit just to post. I love this book stuff. Never in a million years would I have picked up Searching for the Secret River. Even though it's right up my educated street. See the stuff in that book Gayle.... taught it fer years on this side of the world. The book open up a wee bit about the life of the Aboriginal Peoples, culture crashes and discrimination going way back, lawlessness, murder and mayhem, the colonists blundering in, highly uneducated in the ways of the Aboriginal Peoples culture, mores and norms, lands taken, white man plundering lands they know nuthin about and the people that walked that land for what seems like forever. I loved it....an eye opener. Not quite finished it yet but almost there. That book would make a great educational film. Especially since everything that was built on the land still stands. We don't see many Australian history type films here, though funny enough.....I just watched one the other night about 3 brothers....I grimaced more than anything the whole way through it but had to see how it ended. The Proposition or something like that it was called... I'm hoping the book becomes a(n) historical Aussie movie There was great beauty in that stream. Two fumms up frae me.

    Old catch phrases.

    I know the old ones are quite perfect "Them that laugh first" and awl that, "There is no fool like a pair of ignorant old fools" These old cliches are brilliant but how come there are very few new words of wisdom around. The world has changed enough to include a couple of new ones, surely.

    Do you know how hard it is to find jokes that don't stereotype any particular group? I can only tell you the jokes that I deleted were so bad they were good.
