  1. The children at Mount Florida Primary School, just next door to Hampden National Stadium, have hung their school railings with flags and singlets decorated with the national flags of all the nations taking part in the Olympics, the football teams playing at Hampden in particular. Apparently, there is a "Team Pagan" playing....488276_459326010758768_1096335582_n.jpg

  2. "The consequence of the rejection of a CVA outcome is that sanctions will be applied to the Club by UEFA and that the Club will not be able to participate in Europe for three years
    and the new company will need the consent of the other SPL clubs to the transfer of the share in the SPL, in order for Rangers to continue playing in the SPL."

    f**k NO!!! Let them start over again in the Juniors, like Clydebank had to!

    (Makes note to register a protest at Hampden Park on the way to work)

  3. A lot of people I know can't handle it but I actually enjoy working it, No one there to bother you. Can finish early most nights all going well and It's a great feeling going home when everyone else hasn't started.

    Anyone else enjoy it?

    I shall miss it. Moving to a 7am to 11pm store instead of my current 24hrs store.

    Our shifts run from 10pm to 7am. We usually get a delivery around 12 midnight/00:30hrs and the next three hours are spent stocking up the fresh goods. Then the bread and milk arrives around 4am and gets stocked up and the last few hours are spent working any dry goods in the back stock, filling the juice shelves and fronting up the store for the 7am start day shift.

    The only down side is that it is only three nights over a Friday to Monday every fourth weekend. Just as your body rythym gets used to it, it's a day off then back to my usual 4pm to 10pm or 7pm to 1am backshifts. Your day off is usually "wasted" sleeping!

    Oh aye, I'm at 234x174-823939.jpg8)

  4. i'm quite interested in india and caste though.

    John Irving's A Son of the Circus.


    Not one of his best as it jumbles too many themes and ideas into the melting pot and has sections where he seems to play the "I'm John Irving - look at my unique writing style" card, but it does shed light on the underside of Indian street life and is still a very entertaining read.

    However, as you name-checked the '60's "hippy" author Richard Brautigan, I have a feeling I'm teaching Grandma to suck eggs! ;)

  5. :lol:


    What's so funny about becoming handfasted? I see the juvenile level of some posters hasn't changed in the wee while I've been away!

    I've also just read:


    A fascinating guide to the many God and Goddess revered by our ancestors, tracing the influences of the Roman, Greek, Saxon and Germanic beliefs that form part of our spiritual heritage today. More good stuff from David and Sorita.

  6. The "snow" in Paisley is doing a very convincing impression of rain. It lands on the window in a cystally snowflake form and almost instantly dissolves into water! Oh how I look forward to my walk to work tonight...sad.gif

  7. Open up MS Paint. Hit file, open the pic and click image at the top. Click on resize, reduce it accordingly and save it as a copy eg kiltcopy.jpg

    That'll reduce the size and make it more likely to be allowed as an attachment.

    Cheers Andy! I'll give it a go but, in the meantime, I cheated and bought a flash-pen thingy. All my photies are downloaded onto it so Rhaidainhe can plug it into her PC and upload them. Then she can download hers onto it and I can upload them onto my laptop.

    Modern technology - feckin' nightmare!

    Also, going to bed at 15:30 so I can be up and awake for my nightshift at 22:00 tonight - weird!blink.gif

  8. Wasn't whinging was just asking fuckwit! And no it wouldnt

    It will sting like feck and you will end up like a greeting bairn who's just been told Father Christmas doesn't exist and his Paw's spent all the holiday money on booze, fags and a cheap whore!

    Here to help! smile.gif

  9. New camera - great

    Downloaded holiday photo's - great

    Copied to memory stick to upload onto girlfriend's PC - great

    Try to post a sample - "file too big"

    Try to downsize RAR/ZIP it to email - still too big

    Modern technology - every little thing designed to "make your life easy and hassle free", load of shit.

    PS StewartyMac - I have read the instruction booklet - it still doesnae work! dry.gif


  10. I start at the Glasgow Airport Express store this Friday.....

    .....and I have a lump sum being paid shortly and a pension starting 1st October courtesy of my leaving the civil service on voluntary early retirement. biggrin.gif

    PS. I promise not to buy shares in any third world child labour schemes or whine about the unemployed, greedy benefits cheats or selfish biscuit stealing NHS/public sector workers as a result of this upturn in my fortunes - unlike some! ph34r.gif

  11. Whilst the gf was channel hopping on Sunday, I caught a glimpse of the (I presume) omnibus edition. There was an argument on a steam train full of wedding guests about someone calling someone else a lesbian. Then an appalling sing-along at a wedding reception for the simpleton Roy and the ex-man Hayley (who I already thought were married) and then another argument and then two girls being told by Gayle to hug each other when, I'm guessing, they really wanted to suck the faces off each other, being the lesbians in question.

    I'm gobsmacked in all that's gone on since Elsie Tanner's day. I may catch another brief glimpse next year!blink.gif

  12. I was less than impressed.

    It makes a change from the usual moans I get about the NHS; useless receptionists double booking appointments or booking a 20 minute clinical treament into a 10 minute dressings appointment; someone nicking the last set of sterilised instruments for their domiciliary visits leaving the clinic short of kit, etc, etc.*

    I think you should elaborate as to the nature of the prank call. It may seem hilarious in hindsight! wink.gif
