  1. Glenachulish at Glenelg.
  2. Just having a week over in Lewis, the missus is finding plenty to keep me busy... Plenty pics on the old iPad though, I’ll never run out 😂 Can’t get yours though, no wee yellow man to help me 😟
  3. I’ll probably have to leave it as I’m away from my desktop and the wee yellow man till the weekend. Not quite the same but I was in Igls in Austria a few years back and at the end of a meal asked for 2 Americanos. The young waiter rather pompously replied “we don’t serve American coffee” 😜
  4. It crossed my mind yesterday evening, but have to agree with Kingsmills on this one. Sometimes you have to let people dig a hole for themselves.
  5. He means Jackson Carlaw. The £7m refers to the paintings.
  6. Wandering off topic a bit, I rather optimistically booked flights to the Faroe Islands the other week for the start of October, before our season is meant to start, but AtlanticAir cancelled them yesterday. They obviously don’t think much of our handling of this, as they’re still flying to several other countries. I’m a bit miffed as it was an Edinburgh flight but on previous experience there are always travellers from England on it anyway.
  7. You mean cock-a-leekie? Ahh, the perks of being a mod. I reckon Scotty’s never bothered to put Scunthorpe on the list.
  8. OK we've all got it. Kitchener Memorial, Marwick Head. Here's another and I've left the clues in to make it easy for the others but IBM will get it anyway 😂 The blue Škoda is mine (just trying out the accents on the keyboard 😉 ) OK
  9. Ah right, I've actually been there. I'll not say right away.
  10. I’m banking on them being done before the Ryanair refunds.
  11. Pisa? 😉 Looks a bit like Johndo there.
  12. When was that IBM? I've got the Queen Mary 2 under the Forth Bridge in 2009. Where's this now? There's a massive clue and I don't mean the wife.
  13. ELP debuted at the Isle of Wight in late August. I've got the DVD. Keith blew his brains out with a shotgun in 2016 and Greg succumbed to cancer later the same year.
