  1. Chunky or creamy Jobbie...what a choice. With a "white" version especially for a Birmingham based former poster.
  2. Smallest in England is Wells. Smallest in UK is St. David's in Wales.
  3. On my passport my place of birth is Elderslie.
  4. Here is the review I posted on P&B. Nomadland (2020) Now I like slow movies. Even the ones that move along, glacier-like I can find satisfying. However (puffs cheeks and exhales slowly), woman who worked for company which has closed their manufacturing plant moves around the country in a van which is also her home. She takes menial jobs and forms fleeting relationships with strangers, some of whom are also nomadic and she bumps into them at the next parking lot along the way. That's it, there's nothing deeper. It's more like a documentary as McDormand and Strathairn (the pimp in LA Confidential and Carmela's bit of fluff in the Sopranos) seem to be the only actors; almost every other cast member "plays" someone with their own given name. Best Picture, Director and Best Actress Oscars? Emperor's New Clothes time again.
  5. Woolworth's were absolute bawbags in their treatment of Paisley. They closed the High St store in 1988 but made no attempt to relocate within the town. That meant that the biggest town in Scotland didn't have one of their outlets while hovels like Greenock, Falkirk and Kirkcaldy had a Woolies right up until their demise in 2008-09. They deserved all they got.
  6. 2nd jag scheduled for 17th May at the Hydro. Don't they know that's the day pubs reopen?
  7. Had my first draught pints in 6 and a half months at the outdoor area of "The Keg" in Gilmour St.. Unfortunately they hadn't secured the uprights of the canopies and as soon as the wind got up they started to move...and were eventually taken down before the blew away. Of course as soon as this happened at 1645 it started pissing down and the tables emptied pretty quickly.
  8. I just walked past a "drive-through" ice cream place on Lacy St, it's on the waste ground that used to be Apollo Blinds.
  9. Ice Cream/Dessert Shops must be the new Tanning Salons. In addition to the one in Ladyburn St and the 2 already in Glasgow Rd, there's another opening in Glasgow Rd in the former Chameleon tattoo shop and yet another in the old William Hill opposite Kennedys.
  10. And if you're too lazy to read all of that, here's a precis.
  11. https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2021/04/22/how-episode-26-of-celtic-and-rangers-being-linked-with-a-move-to-england-will-play-out/
  12. Here are the goals Mark Erwin https://streamable.com/ufemx2 Durmus https://streamable.com/90xh1q I missed the penalty.
  13. BBC1, it's on after the ravishing Anne Lundon is finished reading the news.
  14. Didn't JG say recently that his wages were outwith of our budget ?
  15. The Quinns who lived next to me in Gallowhill were John, Robert, Jim and Paul.
  16. Especially after Philip didn't move his engagements when Rangers died.
  17. Haven't checked to see if it has already been mentioned but we are now officially safe from relegation. Hamilton can now only get a maximum of 39 points and if that happens Kilmarnock can only reach 38. Kilmarnock can get a maximum of 41 but if that happens Ross County can only reach 39. Silver linings and all that. Edit...scratch that, I forgot Killie and RC played each other and both could win their last 4 games.
  18. It's time the rest of the royal family was killed, sorry culled.
  19. It was my great Uncle Jack's showroom, Sweenie's Furniture. As well as the Chinese restaurant it was also a nightclub called "The Arches", my former Gallowhill nextdoor neighbour Robert Quinn was the bouncer.
  20. I was looking forward to those chocolate samosas.
  21. They've already canned Bargain Hunt.
  22. I see the **** have broken their social media silence already.
