    Fiona Bruce Question Time

    I thought she was excellent. Controlled the panel and audience well. Balanced show for a change with the panellists all given equal time to put their points over. London audience behaving themselves and asking sensible questions. I hope this sets a marker, more of the same please.

    Getting Old

    Quite a few gaps in the Christmas cards this year with the loss of friends, family and loved ones. This has made me feel a bit melancholy. Not helped yesterday by buying a small lightbulb and reading that it has a longer life expectancy than myself. :LOL:

    I have always argued that if gloves work so well why don't golfers wear two. Maybe this guy is proving my point.;)

    Steven Gerrard

    Slightly to my surprise he seems to be doing quite a decent job as the Rangers manager. So far he has avoided all the usual OF guff and handles himself well with the press. He also respects the opposition teams [rare for a manager of the Rangers]. I would perhaps question his buying, for the...

    Persimmon Homes

    Strange how to some, a bonus of £75m is a crazy amount of money for a guy who doubled his companies finances in 3 years but not for a yearly salary for a run of the mill footballer in the EPL

    Ikea Furniture

    Visited Braehead yesterday for the first time in ages. Goodness me, I thought I was walking through a furniture museum. Much of the stuff we bought from Habitat, Co-op, Transatlantic Plastic etc in the early 1970's seems to have been copied for the 2020's I know in clothes fashion folk say what...

    Another Hoop to Jump Through.

    I really like this guy. He runs a foodbank in D&G and writes an amusing blog. Just think how pissed off he must be with Tesco and their 'every little helps' slogan.

    Next PM

    According to a leaked Tory memo, the 1922 Committee will ditch May in April. Looking at the seriously awful list of contenders it sums up where I stand when I think Jeremy Hunt is probably the BEST on offer.

    House of Fraser

    House of Fraser has been taken over by Mike Ashley. He says he wants to turn it into a 'Harrods of the High Street'. I would imagine there will be a bit of a culture shock coming for it's staff. Fair play to him in taking it on and keeping the jobs. I would imagine HoF property portfolio is...

    2013 original estimate of £33b now rises to £99b. That's inflation for you.:( Any guesstimates of the final figure once completed.

    BBQ. Advice

    Hottest day ever in Glasgow yesterday, and two days in the high 20's in bonny Ayrshire. Schools broken up and I have foolishly proposed a BBQ for the G'Kids tomorrow. I haven't done one for nigh on 20 years....Lady Doon thinks they are an utter waste of time. Got burgers chicken legs, sausages...

    Baby Boxes.

    Wings having a bit of fun about the madcap claims of the Scottish unionist media and Scottish branch of the Tory party who are [obviously] in opposition to the Scottish Governments very popular Baby Box concept. Notice that the crazy howls of complaint are about the cardboard box and NOT the...

    Rangers Next New Manager

    I see they have appointed a temporary management team to replace the temporary manager. Some critics say that appointing an inexperienced under 18's coach to replace and experienced under 20's coach is not a very good idea for the next manager. ;)
