  1. Today's pet hate: thieving little cunts. They should get their hands cut off!!! Came home from work today and noticed our communal bike shed had the lock bust open. Sure enough my bike is gone. 3 locks on the fucker too although they only cut 2 of them as far as I can see. the 3rd secured the front wheel to the frame as it's a quick release. I hope the fuckers at least lost a finger in the process of hacksawing the locks. Fuck the lot of them. I wish them the worst possible death!!! 


  2. We got travel cards last time we were in Holland. We used them on trains, trams and buses. You just top them up and scan them when you get on and off the public transport. But, when we were heading back to the airport we didn't have the minimum 25 euros of credit on them even though the fare is only 5 or something and the guard tried to charge us 55 euros for the privilege! We politely declined and ended up being escorted by transport police from the train at schipol with our 2 year old on a gruffalo trunks thinking it was the best thing ever as daddy was goin to jail! 

    In Amsterdam I've done the stadium tour, heinekin tour and a canal boat tour. All very good. Also stayed in The Hague and done madjuredam and went through to Rotterdam for a day mainly for the zoo!

  3. I voted no the first time round... What it came down to for me was the yes campaign did not do enough to convince me that I should vote yes. Lots of shouting and mud slinging from both sides and this annoyed me as I felt that there were no real answers to any of the big issues. I'm a creature of habit and unless I can really buy into something I'm not gonna get behind it.

    fast forward to now and I guess, at present, I'm undecided. I am dismayed that we are facing coming out of the EU and that is down to the rest of the uk. This alone will play a big part in my decision come the vote along with how both sides put across their arguments. 

    If Scotland staying in Europe can be negotiated together with a definitive answer on currency then that might sway me  who knows? Certainly not me just now

  5. dunno about fun day activities but I would say you can't go there and not take in Scarra brae. The chapel in a Nissan hut done by the Italian POW's. There's the scuppered German war ships and of course one of the best distilleries in the world, where they still malt their own barley. Oh and the nightclub in Kirkwall - can't for the life of me remember it's name! But what a night out. Only bettered by the one in Thurso!!! 


  6. So no one has been out since 2015!! Well I'm out tonight with @Adam Easy Wishes who is currently working up a thirst at the office. Not browsing aberdeen music!! Food, pints and a catch up. Quiet day tomorrow. Friends for lunch on Sunday then off to Holland for a few days so extended weekend for me


  7. I'll just stop you there. Carlton Cole has SEVEN caps for England, a country currently 10th in FIFA's rankings. If that doesn't show pedigree, I don't know what does. Plus, he's scored over 50 goals in English football, which highlights how lethal he is in front of goal. AND! He was free, is a sprightly 32 and isn't Anthony Stokes with his associated baggage.

    I never questioned his pedigree however your stats don't change my opinion on it being a strange one. Also 69 senior goals in 14 years is less that 5 a year. Not that great a return for a striker.

    like I said. He should walk it in our league but time will tell.


  8. I was for a wander at lunch today and thought I'd head to R&B for a look as its ages since I've been in and it's now a Kenny's music. Not sure if this is mentioned elsewhere on here or not! Anyhoo I spoke to one of the guys who's up from Glasgow and he was saying they are getting some big deliveries in over the next couple of weeks.


  9. I had a visit from a whisky rep the other day. My favourite type of visitor!!! He was from Diuglas Laing &Co and he gave me a sample (well a 70cl) of their relatively new blended malt scotch Rock Oyster. Which is a mix o the island regions single malts. Easily one of the most drinkable whiskies I've tried and I can't wait to receive delivery of my sample bottles for the speyside, highland and Islay blends.

    If you like whisky is recommend giving these a try!!


  10. What about the Pique sending off for Barca last night? I think it was a good decision. I hate when players think they are above the law of the game and crowd the officials / intimidate them. I know there is a lot at stake in football matches but unless FIFA embrace more use of technology then we all, including overpaid premadonnas, need to accept mistakes may happen.


  11. Bournemouth got screwed last night.

    Their goal ruled out for a non existent foul and then Liverpool's is offside.

    I've been losing interest in the EPL for years now and last night was a clear message from the powers that run the game. Welcome to the big time, now back in your box and don't try to disrupted the big boys in their quest to finish in the top 4!
