    Re: Malaysian Air Lines crash

    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...

    Re: WORLD'S OLDEST SCOT

    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...

    Re: Newsletter 20th June 2014

    Wow Alastair!!!! Have you really lost that much weight? I don't think it will do you any harm, that's for sure. I have known people who came off their insulin and blood pressure meds after losing...

    It's a great show. We just watched the last episode of the latest series last week. I lived in Scotland, of course, but I remember the midwives coming to deliver my younger siblings. I'm the...

    Re: Ian Rankin Interview with Waterstones

    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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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?

    UKIP

    Don't think I like the sound of this United Kingdom Independent Party. Had a quick look at their web page and they sound very right wing to me. Who can tell me a bit about them?

    It's shocking and very sad. I hope the reports of the entire library being lost are not true.
