    Goes completely against notion of places being enjoyable and attractions for tourists rather than money making opportunities.
  2. Scottish Courts have deemed the proroguing unlawful. Now the Supreme Court. It's like the most fanciful soap ever.
  3. Another super trip, Yonza. I really like Rothesay and that bus you mention that goes round the Island and to Kilchattan Bay is very handy. The driver let us off exactly where we wanted to go. Quite a lot to see in Rothesay. Love your photos of the museum in Dunoon. I love it too, agree it's not so easy to find. I'll hunt for some of our old Rothesay photos and se if anything I can add. Those Cal-Mac fares are amazing. Wonder where you're off to next?

  5. Love this place. Great for gin drinkers, ice cream lovers, delicious coffee lovers and the wraps are heavenly. https://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/bungalow-cate-mother-india-kelvingrove-glasgow/

    Yes, Jim has played there quite a few times over the years. It is indeed very quirky. Also performed their with our Ten Writers Project few years back as part of Wet End Festival. It's a shame the plan to build in the lane has reared its ugly head again.
  8. Sounds challenging. I'm off to Tuscany soon. No beaches in the itinerary.
  9. She's resigned because cannot bear to see Tories have the whip removed. Children dependent on food banks don't seem to worry her.
  10. Good to see University of Glasgow taking steps to address reparation re slave trade in Glasgow. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/aug/23/glasgow-university-slave-trade-reparations
  11. Samscafe, you won't be seeing many sunny subjects these rainy days but hope you are still painting. I've ordered some wool as it will soon be hat-crocheting season.
  12. You would think that a General Election was no threat with the team that are in power. So worrying that so many ordinary people, not in Scotland, could vote Tory. They moved further to the right and more anti-migrant to attract the UKIP vote. Don't know if they would now vote Brexit. What a thought that the likes of Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson vying to lead the country. You would think that Corbyn would be sailing through. At the moment Cummings seems to be in charge.
  13. Yes, fabulous photo, Yonza. I was in Dumbarton a couple of weeks back and we took a wee drive down Havoc Lane past my old school, Notre Dame Clerkhill, which is now a ruin. The story went that Wallace's cave was down there near the shore. Sure enough graffiti on the wall with his name. There is a new (to us) road down to the Clyde. We sat for ages as it was like a bird sanctuary, including dozens of swans swimming on the Clyde and we saw one tall black bird that I thought was a shag. There were many different species including some that I didn't recognise, some birds with similar colouring to seagulls but much smaller and rounder. Will definitely go back. It was fascinating. Shot of some of the swans - not too clear as just had my phone and the were far out.
  14. These freak weather events seem to be happening more and more. Must be awful for people living in coastal towns. There hasn't been much on the news because we're getting wall to wall Westminster. Very informative, Yonza. I hope the \Azores high' swings into action and the 'recurve' back out to sea takes place.
  15. Always something new in Glasgow's Literary Scene: http://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/category/whatson/bookstalkspoetry/
