Wouldn't be so disruptive in Glasgow I don't think. The tram rails are all pretty much intact under the tarmac. Strip a few layers down on most of the main routes and bob's yer auntie.

I'd like to see trams back in Glasgow. Clean, efficient, fast; beat the morons that sit in traffic in their single-occupancy cars... why not?

The trams certainly have a romantic appeal but other than that I am a bit unsure of their benefits. I'm not sure if the old tram lines, if they are there, would do the job for this century's new models. :(

She's 12.5 years old and seems to be having some problems with liver function. Not alarming, but could turn so. She's on medication for for three months, so keep your fingers crossed.

Tam this will be her third "warm" winter. Winter is the only time she really likes to be outside down here. Most of the time, otherwise, she spends indoors. Chows are prone to heat exhaustion and are, at heart, couch potatoes so air conditioning is her friend. In Idaho I used to come home from work and there would be a pile of snow a little bigger than all the other snow and it would be Wolfie with her nose tucked to her tail just sleeping away. She had a very good and warm dog house, she just liked the snow. :(:lol:

Good luck with Wolfie, Peony, although I guess 12.5 is probably an old age for a dog her size?

Here is a link to some great piccies from the big storm we had in Melbourne yesterday. Luckily here up in the high country we only got the heavy rain which we needed.

Glad you missed hail Gayle. Great pics.

Apparently according to climate expert Tim Flannery's prediction in 2007, with all this Global Warming, Australia is becoming much drier& the dams will be nearly empty Arent you glad? would hate to see it wetter :(

Let's know how that query goes, HH?

Well, the consensus of opinion among my 'Transport Enthusiast' friends is that while there may indeed be some small sections of track remaining in various places, the majority were lifted shortly after the demise of the Trams.

Is the picture of Arran?

Still with snow on the mountains in March??.

Yup; the hills are still frozen solid and snow covered hereabouts.

Arran on a very clear day last summer - these pics don't do it justice:

I never tire of that view.

The name of this creek has always appealed to me

000_0866.jpg

Coal & Candle Creek

Its actually named after a Scot who obviously had a very thick accent. He was a timber getter & lived on its banks.

Say it out loud in your best/worst Scots accent see if you can get it.
