  1. On the nursery run this morning my wee boy spotted a couple of policemen out on the beat. We both broke into a few bars of 'Sound of da Police', as is customary with such sightings in our house. Straight afterwards I switched on 6 Music, and within about 10 seconds, they were playing the very song. Spooky.
  2. I used to rent a flat off former St Johnstone and Kilmarnock player Danny Invincibile. He kept the place in decent nick and think the only times I had cause to speak to him were around moving in and moving out. Not much else to report really.
  3. I’ve been collecting this. It’s for the kids, obviously. Im down to my last 4, and keen to try and finish it off without having to send away for any. Anybody got (and would be willing to swap with a stranger over the internet) 40, 54, 113, 132? Edit - just to point out that this is the Scotland book rather than the one with all the teams.
  4. Either SNP/Green or SNP/SNP - I'll use my list vote tactically with independence in mind. I'm pretty sure that means SNP/Green where I live, and means a consituency vote for Sturgeon and a list vote for Harvie, which sounds good to me.
  5. I had to text a Nigerian guy I know after reading this. He confirms that it's very much true. 'Nobody wants to be addressed as a Dundee or a Dundee United'.
  6. There's not much football chat where I work. 11 in my team: me (Queens), a Celtic fan, a French guy who supports Lyon, a Nigerian guy who supports Arsenal, and nobody else who is interested as far as I know.
  7. Oops - thanks for letting me know! Nothing personal, just combining messing around on here with weighing up my furlough options for the coming weeks! Try this link: https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/glasgow/duncolm.shtml
  8. The bit I've done 3-4 times (up to the end of stage 3 in the link) makes for a good family walk. The views of Glasgow and the Clyde estuary are fantastic, and we got a corker of a sunset the day we went up. It's not hard - my kids (aged 6 and 4) complained a bit but managed it, and it can feel like you're somewhere more countrified than you really are. I'm planning on going back on my own and doing something like the full walk suggested in the link in the next few weeks. I'd say more small local hills than anything likely to need mountain rescue, but a decent bet when you're stuck in Glasgow over lockdown.
  9. I’ve been to Uganda for work a few times. It’s a fab country - friendly people, incredible wildlife, interesting culture, and usually safe to get around. They’ve got a presidential election coming up. I was there in 2016 - the last time they had one. In one corner there was Yoweri Museveni - dictator for 30+ years, and very much in the mould of the classic African strongman leader. In the other corner was main challenger Kizza Besigye, who probably wasn’t in line for many Nobel peace prizes either, but presented himself as the candidate for change. Fair to say it was pretty full on. In the 3 weeks I was there, Besigye got arrested/detained several times, the two candidates had rallies in a football stadium 300m from where I was staying on consecutive days and there was fighting, tear gas, etc as Museveni’s supporters left and Besigye’s arrived, I spent an afternoon stuck in a traffic jam with hoards of (friendly) Besigye supporters singing and dancing all around the car, they cut the country’s internet on the day of the election, there was pro-Museveni propaganda everywhere - especially the media (even P&B was infiltrated- see below). One afternoon when I was out for a walk in Kampala they suddenly shut all the streets off to traffic and I saw Museveni and his motorcade speeding past. It felt a bit close to the action sometimes with the potential for trouble to flare up, but couldn’t help but find it all quite fascinating. Everyone I spoke to supported Besigye, but expected the election to be a stitch up. Museveni was re-elected by a landslide, of course. Kizza Besigye supporters returning from a rally in Entebbe. Election posters, Kampala. P&B nailing íts colours to the mast (I was messaging a friend who posts on here and screenshotted this to show him the extent of the pro-government advertising).
  10. A few others that you might well already know about but I don’t think have been mentioned: Linn Park (our family favourite - spent a lot of time there during the first lockdown, big and lots of different parts to explore). Rouken Glen (the main park is pretty busy, but much more space to yourself if you cross the river). Alexandra Park (took the kids there today, lots of space for a wander around). Queens Park (great views of the city, can get a bit busy though). Cathkin Braes The Kilpatrick Hills (Old Kilpatrick station to Loch Humphrey is a decent family walk with good views - planning to do it tomorrow).
  11. Encouraging data. What’s the source of it? (Not doubting it - just interested to look through it.)
  12. I think it’s highly unlikely that those in positions of power didn’t know the rules. As far as I can see, someone at the club weighed up the covid restrictions and PR implications, and decided ‘f**k it, just let them in, it’ll be fine’.
  13. Fingers crossed that this sees Hewitson out of the club. I’ve never forgiven him and his fellow directors for the Rangers vote. i doubt very much that it will though. As fan groups go, Queens seem more accepting than most about these sorts of things, sadly. Also, as a supporter of independence, Galloway launching a pro-union party is probably a good thing In next year’s election. The more split that the unionist vote is the better.
  14. "Sorry you're upset" - classic non-apology. Has anyone posted something saying that we should all move on and get behind the club? There's usually something like that incoming around now.
  15. Been a while since I updated this list. Still a few on there I’m a bit surprised that nobody has claimed: Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, maybe Madagascar. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Dominica, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Grenada, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana, Haiti, Iran, Kiribati, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Mali, Marshall Islands, Mauritania, Mauritius, Micronesia, Mozambique, Nauru, Niger, Pakistan, Palau, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Samoa, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Togo, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu
