Tee hee Trout being all official there! :lol: :wink:


I'm Marjolein or Marmalade. Depends whether I'm in a jar or not.

I mostly like toast, but not raw toast.


I love music, whether playing or listening to, and times of the year to do with music, the music festival, Folk festical, F & A festival. I'd love to go to Leeds next year.


Don't know what else to say, lived in Shetland all my life blahdy blahdy blah. Love the sea and swiming in it too and sailing, rowing.

I enjoy speedboating, water skiing, and the occasion sherry at the weekend, I love music of every kind, and also enjoy playing guitar and singing (both badly I must add). :oops:

I'm Ross. I'm not from Shetland, don't hold it against me! My Girlfriend is from Burra and managed to get me to fall in love with the place! Her mammy got me John Graham's dictionary for my christmas last year, so I could get clued up and understand what she was saying!

I like, god what do I like? well playing guitar seems to be a pretty popular thing to do around here, so I'll jump on that band wagon aswell. I like flying my power kite, drinking real Ale and coming up to Shetland in the holidays. Yeah that'll do for now :D

Greetings, you lucky people living in the beautiful Shetland Isles.

I've loved them since they first offered me shelter from storms in the early/mid 70s - I was helping to build the Brent and Ninian fields at the time, so working with Shetlanders - sound folk, I found.

You'll have to excuse my use of plain ol' English. I'm only a damn Saxon and know no better. Not just a soothmoother - I was born in Brighton, if you went any further sooth you'd drown, or be French.

Currently (alas) living in Nottingham. You've probably read in the national newspapers about how we have illicit drug dealers from Kingston, Jamaica gunning each other down in the streets, quite true, I'm afraid. Anyone thinking of moving to one of them southern cities, just talk with me, I'll put you off! Anyone thinking of importing a(nother) damn Saxon to Shetland ... well, now you're talkin'. (Get me outta here!)

Looking forward to a few (friendly, I hope) insults - but if it's said with a chuckle I'll buy yer a drink on the way to the next one.

See you further down the forums ...
