  1. So he's going to have a concrete "expert" on his show tomorrow? He's no doubt found someone who will have some convoluted argument to explain how it grows/expands (it doesn't, it actually shrinks slightly as it dries out) but that isn't the point. It uses non-renewable resources whereas timber is renewable. It's as though he's never heard of the Forestry Commission.
  2. Absolutely but this season we've seemed at times to have gone with the tactic of letting teams come at us, hoping they don't take their chances and we manage to nick something. Sometimes it's worked, sometimes it hasn't but we've rarely been particularly impressive.
  3. I don't think we've been particularly outstanding in any of the games we've won. We rely on our opponents not being able to take the chances we try to limit them to. If we'd lost any of those games we'd probably have been saying it was pish.
  4. I enjoyed the second series but not as much as the first, definite shift from black comedy to more of a gangster drama. I was also distracted by some of the Glasgow scenes. The outside of the church was Ruchill Parish Church beside the Viking Pub and McDonald's in Maryhill. By coincidence, there is actually a food bank run from the church hall where they show the food bank.
  5. A lot of new developments have it in the title deeds that you can't use the property as business premises although I don't understand how that works for someone using their house as a home office. I assume it's intended to stop people using their property as something like a builder's yard or, in this case, kennels which are out of place in a residential setting.
  6. I didn't post last night but I also had a few Lidl specials along with some Jura French Oak. Hare of the Dog from Hurly Burly in Musselburgh was so-so but I really liked Jar Nektar from Hybrid in Grangemouth and 71's Frontal Skie Baltic Porter. This morning I'm drinking lots and lots of water.
  7. Cheers! I wondered if I had it the wrong way round. German's not my strong point.
  8. Yeah, still fairly bang on in the wee cans although tonight I preferred my can of Tyskie to follow. A Beer 52 bottle of Buro Pils from German brewer Naturtrub is spot on also.
  9. First drink in a good while. Pilsner Urquell going down a treat.
  10. He wasn't but he'd have needed to have taken underwhelming to a new level to not be displacing John Reilly from that team. I was a big fan of Dykstra but I don't think anyone could argue against Billy Thomson having achieved more in his career. Ally Maxwell would also be a good option.
  11. We had Esteban Casagolda whose agent managed to create a myth around him before he actually turned out to be all long hair, fancy touches in the warm-up and, in reality, really pish.
  12. A piece on Tommy Coyne and also managing to shoehorn in Marv's goal against Bell. Well played.
  13. Sounds good but what does TYB mean forthosenotup on theirtext speech? I tried googling it and it suggested Take Your Bitch or Tickle Your Balls which I assume weren't what you intended [emoji1]
  14. That's how to cheat on Strava segments.
  15. I've been in Argyll the last few days so had a few rides on some off-road and forestry tracks on my ancient and clunky mountain bike rather than my usual road bike rides. Plenty of climbing, completely different pace and enjoying the change.
  16. A bottle of Highlander from Fyne Ales followed by a few nondescript Beer 52 cans that I can't be arsed listing. Oh, and some wonderful Lidl Ben Bracken Islay 16yo to wash them down.
  17. A bit earlier but we also had John Sullivan regularly announced in our team on the radio when it should have been John Philliben.
  18. Snap - I had one of those as well tonight! And an Avalanche last night. I'm up at Loch Fyne for a few days after all.
  19. I'm a driver and a cyclist and there are unfortunately plenty of cyclists that give the rest of us a bad name. I put delivery cyclists in a different category from all other cyclists and hope everyone else does also.
  20. Not the best idea in the world if you're going in the Queen Street direction! Anyway, I give you 'Strathaven' which I remember Mark Radcliffe regularly pronouncing as it's spelled on the radio before I realised where he meant
  21. I was in a pub yesterday that sold West's German Pale Ale. Never had it before but thought it was wonderful. My opinion might be skewed however as I've not been drinking recently and this was the first beer I could actually taste after a bout of covid. I could live with the cold I had but the lack of taste was a complete bugger.
  22. I've been impressed by the new artwork going up outside Firhill. Forgive my lack of knowledge of older Thistle players but, going by the sign, I assume his name's McParland.
  23. It looks like a Juniors ground - what division is that in? Although the police that came on very much look like top division.
  24. To be fair to the Vatican, it's primary function isn't to be a tourist attraction.
  25. Someone decided 9am would be a good time for a Teams meeting tomorrow morning. Wouldn't it be terrible if it was still not working by then?
