    beyond our ken got a reaction from bazil85 in Financial irregularities   
    i recall one post belittling him and accusing him of lying about going to a BLM (i think) event at Kings park.  The poster had a go on the basis that Ricky is from Stirling and he was lying about going to Glasgow, without even thinking that he lives a stone's throw from Kings Park in Stirling.

    You talked about someone's tendency to catastrophise and then come out with this on the same page-wow!
    And Ricky is far from the being the only repeat visitor to the sin-bin

    beyond our ken got a reaction from God of war in St Mirren covid fine fund   
    I give money to St Mirren, I have given a LOT over the years.  St Mirren is part owned by a Millionaire, a charity with cash reserves and a supporters group with cash reserves.  10 grand won't break any of them
    There are are a lot of people in more need of our help and I'd urge anyone with spare cash to use it wisely and as they see fit

    beyond our ken got a reaction from munoz in Club covid executives - a statement.   
    SPFL's self-imposed deadline has passed without any statement from either the club or the league.
    I used to think that people describing our game as embarrassing or a laughing stock were overstating things, but no longer.  The SPFL's so-called leaders have painted themselves into a corner here.  I stand by my earlier summary that says they cant act and will therefore wait for as long as they can before sanctioning a re-schedule of the games, probably at a time that represents the greater disadvantage to St Mirren.
    the articles of the SPFL probably prevent member clubs from suing the body, otherwise the club would have good grounds for saying that their procrastination has led to difficulties and loss for saints.

    and would provide much more but for UK Gov's transmission charges and failure to invest in the cheapest technology-onshore wind.
    Company's in Scotland are investing in technologies such as green-hydrogen storage, battery storage and others without incentive or a viable route to market, hopefully energy policy will become devolved if we don't go for independence.  The rest of the UK is actually fearful of Scotland's renewable potential

    No longer allowed to use the word Faggott in the context of a scrap of waste material in case it causes offence, but still allowed to use the term Fairytale.  Perhaps it should just become the "Irish Song"
    So children are no longer allowed to titter and discover the boundaries of good taste by trial and error when they giggle at the Americanised uses of Fanny, Spunk and many other words with valid meanings that are used out of context to actually cause offence.
    I fear that the very valid crusade to make language more respectful has lost it's way.  Don't sweat the small stuff, as they say.
    Tourettes sufferers are really up effluent creek.

    TV chef Nigella tells us that we've been making toast in the wrong way, "twice buttered" is the new way
    I switched on Nigel Slater today, making apple crumble.  " like to keep it rough and basic" wittered Nige,  Maybe he was about to discuss his lovemaking preferrences, i thought, before he proffered that adding Madeira, or Marsala to the apples would enhance the flavour.  "Apples and cheese are a match made in heaven" he droned, He nearly had me back in the room with that, "a nice chunk of cheddar on the side would be lovely" i thought.  i was ready to see where this was going before the camera cut to Nige heading down the garden to his cheese store -Nigel has a cheese store) for a big chunk of Parmiggiano Reggiano.  "I'm expecting pudding (maybe another sexual euphemism, you never know)  but it reminds me of an old-fashioned ploughmans lunch", he dribbled whilst neatly sidestepping the fact that there is nothing that is really old-fashioned about a ploughmans.
    a former colleague once claimed that a menu in a Gastropub he visited offered "vinegar 3 ways", which turned out to be fish, chips and mushies in separate (tiny) vessels.
    "Pseuds" was the word that Private Eye used to use, maybe it's time to bring that back.

    as you said, the government is ploughing money in to make schools safe, they have also not ruled out any measure that may be required to effect greater control over the spread of infection.
