  1. Aye...it's in Edinburgh!
  2. In the absence of Flure, I can confirm that WESTA are the largest tartan army club based in Glasgow. We meet the last Sunday of every month at 7.30 pm upstairs in the Iron Horse. Got a meeting/AGM this Sunday. Well over 100 members and running a free bus for members to and from the Canada game on 22 March.
  3. Yes - I'm sure Tam will be on shortly with the detail
  4. This - also you can double back and go on the motorway at Helen Street which is way easier than trying to get on at the end of the Expressway.
  5. I've got one thing to say about this thread.....holy crap
  6. We can't agree on the colour of shyte so I'm not surprised the ATAC message has pissed some people off. As the saying goes, you can please some of the people some of the time. No one is saying ATAC is perfect but at least they have a foot at the table at the SFA - although that has been a pretty precarious position on a number of occasions. The SFA don't have to listen to ATAC but I'm happy as a member of WESTA that we get regular updates on ATAC's activities and get asked for our views ahead of any meetings with the SFA. Even within WESTA, we can't get a consensus so the ATAC reps generally go with the majority view. I can only speak from personal experience and on the odd occasion I've had to pick up tickets, I've found the girls perfectly pleasant but have witnessed drunken boorish fans abusing the girls for their own inability to follow clear guidance. I wasn't however required to pick up a ticket at Wembley so didn't witness that or hear from anyone else that did have to go to the collection point.
  7. Just a point of order - it was Strathclyde Police. He joined Better Together before Police Scotland was formed.
  8. Given that the ATP Masters Finals start in London on the 13th, I'm not surprised.
  9. Have to agree with all that's been said. A lovely man and the funeral was a fitting tribute to him. I've never cried listening to 'Two Little Boys' before but I wasn't alone!
  10. TBH - I only found it because I watered a plant and spilled some water so had to move the photo frame to clean it up! This is my house keeping ethos.... Dust If You Must by Rose Milligan Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better To paint a picture, or write a letter, Bake a cake, or plant a seed; Ponder the difference between want and need? Dust if you must, but there's not much time, With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb; Music to hear, and books to read; Friends to cherish, and life to lead. Dust if you must, but the world's out there With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair; A flutter of snow, a shower of rain, This day will not come around again. Dust if you must, but bear in mind, Old age will come and it's not kind. And when you go (and go you must) You, yourself, will make more dust.
  11. OK - can now shed a bit more light (ahem) on the incident. Turns out the glass bit sheared off at the metal base and rolled along the cabinet where it got stuck behind a photo frame. It would appear a power surge is the most likely cause but all very freaky indeed.
  12. Oh dear god! I've been travelling since 2003 and never had any shyte...other than the normal banter...for being a Rangers fan. Maybe it's cos I is a girl.....
  13. No bites in Malta but got a corker in Rome. I only get bitten at this time of year. Apparently, it's getting to the end of the season and the wee feckers go on a feeding frenzy before dying out.
  14. It was under consideration until I found the base of the light bulb still inside the lamp.
  15. Yep - definitely nothing left on the cabinet around the lamp. I even ran my hand across it at the time in case there was just fine shards left but nothing other than normal dust.
