    oaksoft got a reaction from shull in Televisions   
    I'd ask her what she thought but she's busy making my dinner and I don't want her disturbed in case she burns it.
    Actually the TV was her idea.
    The cards and presents were a joint suggestion becaue as fate would have it, I accidentally stumbled onto someone with exactly the same views and outlook on life as me. What's the chances of that eh? Crucially we sorted all the cards and pressie nonsense in the first 2 weeks. It wouldn't have been worth it if either of us had a problem with it.
    Communication Rick. Try it. It's a wonderful thing and it's commonly poorly done which is why so many wives leave after the kids go.
    The kids were a different matter.
    I'll tell you this but you won't believe it - I don't really care if you don't TBH but it's interesting.
    6 or 7 years ago (or whenever we stopped), we gave them a pile of presents.
    Within an hour it was clear something was up as they were a bit quiet.
    I asked them what the problem was and they said nothing but the 3 of them went upstairs "to play".
    When they came down they'd clearly had a chat and the eldest said they felt bad at getting so much stuff because they felt guilty that they couldn't play with it all and they thought we'd be hurt about that.
    For our part, we'd spent every penny we had on them, had stressed ourselves stupid over spending the same amount on each and struggled to find something they'd each like. In short we hated the hassle and felt bad about the expense.
    ...and then all of them come and tell you that to your face.
    Now quite how I've managed to build a family where young kids talk in that manner is another thing altogether but that was the start of us blowing out Xmas pressies. We discussed it as a family and we agreed to cut it right back. That was the most weird thing I've ever been through. That's where we are now. It was essentially their own choice. They asked for it.

    Division 2 with Part Time players should start the Pars off on the correct road for a settled future.

    Thank you indeed. I can honestly say that I did not know anything of that prior to your reply.
    I shall take a donner into my local Tandy or Comet and view the various television sets on offer. I will of course demand a resolotion of 1080 in LED format for a good price, a good price indeed.
    If those shops are not where I recall them then I will make toward Arnotts, they used to have a good wireless and colour television section.
    Thanks again, I will keep you posted with my choice of viewing box as someone somewhere may be interested.

    Are you seriously not intelligent enough to spot the vast chasm of difference between the two incidents?
    Maybe DSS will be found guilty and maybe he'll be let off. Either way, you trying to paint the two scenarios as the same thing amounts to you trying to treat us like idiots.

    Should we congratulate them for winning a part time league and running up just the £7 million loss in doing so?
    I find it a bit hard to congratulate financial cheating.
    The same financial cheating which has killed the game in Scotland.
    The same financial cheating which has already cost that club it's.......club.
    Interesting that their fans are up in arms about probably signing Jon Daly from Utd.
    Apparently he's not good enough for them.

    the man let us down, he sank to their level. He had no right to expect that kayal could or would do anything about palestine. similarly, he had no right to expect that his protest would be heard beyond the dozen or so people around him.
    maybe he takes any and every opportunity to berate israelis by picketing embassies and businesses, i dont know. if he is so passionate then it is a wonderful thing for him that he has been arrested and has gained publicity for his heartfelt cause. He is now a political prisoner and a martyr, just like the celtic heroes.
    But just maybe he was a daft (and by this example nasty) person who used the plight of thousands of people to get at a celtic player-that is actually quite obnoxious

    I fear this might just be an unfortunate misunderstanding.
    Is it not possible that DSS was simply calling out encouragement to Isma Goncalves who could have scored his third goal against Celtic in as many games?
    "Three pal, this time!"
    FFS, that was truly awful. I've already got my coat and I'm heading out the door.....

    Have to admit, my first reaction was why the f**k would you shout that at a st mirren game. Hate it when our fans lower themselves the the Old Firms level.

    I'm not saying he should have been arrested if all he has said is FREE PALESTINE.
    However, please inform your friend if he would like to shout pish like this, kindly f'k off and do it elsewhere. It has nothing to do with St Mirren FC and don't understand why someone would shout that during a football match in the Scottish Premier League.

    FFS I don't believe this. My screen went black tonight.
    When I turn it off and on again it comes back to life for 3 seconds and then goes black again.
    Thankfully I've got a laptop.
    New screen tomorrow.
    On the positive side, it went black half way through reading one of Tony A's crap posts.
