Every country is known for something. Scotland is known for many things…some good, some not so good. The stereotype of us all drinking heavily is definitely true, particularly when you compare us to the rest of the world. Though we’re no different from the English, Irish, Welsh when it comes to drinking excessively. I’ve never […]
Being born the year Thatcher became Prime Minister of Britain, I can’t remember a time the Conservatives (Torys) were popular in Scotland. To this day Thatcher is a dirty word up here, particularly where I live. Frankie Boyle summed up the hatred for this Woman (and party) up here when he was talking about the […]
I really have come to hate April 1st over the last few years. Perhaps I was more gullible as a child, perhaps people are just being lazier with their April fools jokes, or perhaps we’ve been here so many times before that we have mentally prepared not to believe anything we read. I don’t know. […]

Have you ever met one of your heroes? I’m not really one to get star struck and have never had any interest in hanging around to get autographs or anything like that. Though they always say that you will be disappointed if you do meet your heroes. I came across a picture which was taken […]
Will this damn season never end!!!
Remember kids, respect your elders!
This time last year I was in Thailand at the start of a 3 month trip. Before going over I secured a year long worldwide travel insurance policy with American Express. I had used a cheaper UK insurance company the previous year but having actually having made a claim and being told that I wasn’t […]
This is probably the most useful thing you will learn this year. OK, perhaps not if you don’t eat bananas that often. I personally eat bananas several times a week so I was amazed that there was a quicker way to get my potassium fix. We need to give more credit to those damned dirty […]
Hope you’re all suffering from a hangover as bad as mine! 🙂
