    Re: Life Sciences in Scotland

    Even in the 1980's Edinburgh Medical School had a famous reputation still. The GP I had at the time told me that his brother, also a doctor, had studied for a year in Edinburgh and according to him...
  3. Re: Tony from Canberra: Pity about the grotty Scots

    It's true that Abbott and the very right wing Liberal government is at fault. They can't even get to form a government on their own, they need a coalition. However I object to this guy writing and...
  4. Re: High-dose Flu Vaccine more effective in elderly, study finds, by Craig Boerner

    Joan, I've only ever once had the flu in my life and it was after having a flu shot also for the first time in my life. I've never had one since and that was 43 years ago. :-)

    If your neighbour was a lot bigger & richer than you and had bullet proof glass on his windows, would you keep chucking stones at his windows?

    Rick, from what I've read and understood these pro-Russian rebels are descendants of the Russians who took over the native born Ukrainians land during the time when the Ukrainians were being forced...

    Malaysian Air Lines crash

    I am absolutely disgusted at the news that the belongings of the victims have been looted. Apparently the credit card of one of the victims has been used in Ukraine in an attempt to get a cash...

    Alastair is right. At one point of my life I used to have to spell my whole name & address :-) I used to be Elda Mulrine who lived Claypotts Road, Ruchazie. It was a nightmare and only the...

    Re: WORLD'S OLDEST SCOT

    That must have been a pain in the neck Alastair. Probably how all the mispellings took place during the early years when a lot of the migrants couldn't read nor write.

    Re: WORLD'S OLDEST SCOT

    I read it somewhere too. It must have been common for someone named Jane to be called Jeannie. My grandmother was Jane but called Jeannie. I wasn't even aware of that until I found her marriage...

    Re: Newsletter 20th June 2014

    Alastair, I think that most people's insulin levels vary daily, depending on what they've eaten or drunk but we never know because we've had no reason to test it. My grandson's partner is expecting...

    Joan, if you like Ian Rankin then you'll probably like some of the books by Campbell Armstrong with stories based in Glasgow. I can't recall the name of any at the moment but he did write a series...
  20. Re: Vanadium: The metal that may soon be powering your neighbourhood

    Yes, I did read that Ranald. I wonder if that's what planes black boxes are made from. I've heard people say that if they can recover the black boxes undamaged, why don't they make the whole plane...
  21. Re: A Point of View: What happens when a library falls silent

    It's a sign of the times Ranald. More and more is being read online. I have an e-book and I download books free of charge from my local library. I read too many and could not possibly afford to...
  22. Re: Vanadium: The metal that may soon be powering your neighbourhood

    Interesting Ranald. Wouldn't you think they'd make cars & planes out of it?
