  1. Just phoned up Gremista and a very helpful man took my name and said that he would put my name on and I could collect when next in town.
  2. How can I obtain a replacement recycling bag. The one that came with the bins and was for glass.
  3. O dear, Am I right in thinking that our leaders are not really concerned or interested in our welfare and are only interested in the money they can get even if the product kills us.
  4. I note that a large amount of heroin has been intercepted and that is good but if you look at the worldwide figures for deaths from heroin against worldwide figures for deaths from smoking drinking why are these substance users not being targeted.
  5. Thank you George that was a great help.
  6. Hello. As my house has underfloor electric heating which does not work if there is a power cut I am considering some type of gas heater so I would be grateful for any advice/information as regards running costs type of gas etc. I did consider wood burning but as you need installation and also the cleaning and getting wood this option does not seem the best.
  7. If we are not careful we will find that we are like China where you can disappear for saying something that the authorities do not like.
  8. You do not have freedom of speech and with all the new powers that are being given to the police you will soon not be able to protest about anything. These new laws of course will all be rescinded once the pandemic is over. I am not Jan.
  9. Reading all these posts it seems that privacy for the individual is non-existent and just wishful thinking.
  10. From all the posts it seems as if it is difficult to hide from the authorities and unless you are up to something why bother.
  11. Cards/Digital entry on passports etc are coming whether you like it or not as airports and countries will require documentation to travel. Why the fear of I.D. cards as I am sure that even Mr Putin knows what we all had for dinner. I think that considering the time that we have had to study this virus we have done very well with producing a vaccine. I am sure that better vaccines will come but is there such a thing as a 100% effective vaccine. I would also like to advise anyone who has refused the vaccine to think again as this virus is not a nice way to die and some of the after effects are n
  12. Any thoughts on vaccination cards. My son who lives in England on getting the jab was given a card with details of what he got and I note that people in Wales are getting cards. I did not get one when I got my jabs.
  13. Hello again. I have also posted this in the music section, thank you.
  14. Hello, I know that this is probable the wrong place to post this but i want it to get maximum coverage. Would the person who bought a violin/fiddle from Mr Ewen Thomson in 2013, I believe that it was a lady, please get in touch with me and she will hear something to her advantage, Thank you.
  15. Hello Muckle Oxters, Thank you for your input. I do agree with you that it could be expensive to put a heat pump in and if you were young you may be able to get it back over a long period due to it being perhaps cheaper to run but I am not young so the propane could be the best option, I have had no other info. as yet. It would only be used on very cold days.
  16. i need to heat a small shed about 3m x 3m. if anybody has done this can they advise me as to the best way to do it / I have discounted wood burners so i am left with propane electric radiator or a small heat pump, I favour the heat pump and if that is your advise can you tell me who is the best person to speak to about it, thank you.
  17. Well said aaa22 / as i said earlier drive with care and attention / If people can not cope with a simple junction such as this they should not be on the road / If they ever drive on the mainland how would they cope with some of the junctions there / I think that there is a case for people who pass a test here being made to pass another on the mainland if they are going to drive there.
  18. How about driving with more care and attention.
  19. Hello, Can you tell me the name and meaning of the kanji character,thank you.
  20. Colin / You are 100% correct / I have been saying this for years / It is so nice to hear some one else say it.
  21. Well said Urabug / We should not be frightened to say what we want to say.
  22. Hello all / Do stop this bickering as we are all in this together.
  23. There is a book in the library called STOLEN ISLES by STUART HILL. I have read it and found it most interesting and would say that anyone interested in the history of Shetland should read it. It is at times a bit heavy but if you stick at it by the end you will have learned some thing and most definitely had your eyes opened.
  24. Hi, What do people think of the practise of crowd funding.
