  1. northlink add has no views of shetland on it - well apart from up helly aa- not counted!
  2. i'd shop there, after the dirty way the town centre ass. have to soposed to have behaved about re hodge has sickend me to never buy from the shops owners involved. mind you i did'nt buy much up here before. I'm one that takes a van south then i go on holiday! i can remember the carry on when the bargin centre opened and under cut the expencive 'street' shops. Its just about filling the pockets to a few business men. its not that long ago i found a 30p difrence between safeways and the co-op on one item. roll on tescos, although i would rather have liddle
  3. i remember Malcome Green spending tones of money on some new logo that turned out to look like some kind of paint multi -coloured squigle in a 's' shape. Is that the one you meen? its so long ago now im no realy sure...... It eventualy got ditched as the councilers said the council already had a logo - the crest and ditched it!
  4. i went to him years ago and he told me things that only i would know - it was shocking, hes fantastic, bit spookie but well worth it. Most of the things he told me came true. i remember phoning to get an appointment then months later he phoned to say come along, well worth the waite. he lives in the end road in vidlin now
  5. The Garison is now programmed through the Shetland Arts Trust, if you wanted to know what is comming on you have to read your Shetland Times or phone them. Islesburgh will only know things when they are told by SA, probely at the same time as the rest of us, although they might know when things are on but thats about it. Although the theatre still belongs to the Council/Islesburgh you might find you have to phone both places rather than one now.
  6. Well im no suprised to hear this sort of thing going on - some of this trusts that have no idea how to suport the actual people that keep them in jobs - the shetland people! I think its not on not even giving the locals a try out, i was in John Couts this week, and some of his views are fantastic and he lives here. How on earth do they justify flying (at great costs) in a french man to take photos of the same things the locals can do just as well? Do you think the french goverment would fly in a shetlander to take photos of France for the same thing - i think not. Many of the trusts think that unless you come from the south (or north) ie not shetland you are no good. They should hang their head with shame. Im all for buying south when the quality or quantity is better as i think its a free world and we should go for the best their is, but in this case the shetland guys could hand have done a great job. On the other hand i have heard that in some cases its a job for the boys or from outside altogether, never open to everyone.
  7. anyone ever heard how the new operators going to tackle the lack of beds- like they said they would if they got the contract??????
  8. golden c is the best i think, although i agree with the shabbie bit - have u noticed the besties in the light casing in the takeaway?

    can someone tell me if im right or not. is the 37 rule but work 34 not part of somepay settelments of the past? instead of giving pay rises the told staff to go home early?

    all staff will be offered this as its part of single status agrements. as you may remember in aberdeen when it happend there they had a right carry on! the fact that some employees get far too much for what they actualy do where others get far too less for what they do - its about balencing the tables a bit. which is great if you are a dinner lady, cleaner or other low payed job. not so good if you are middle management. Each type of job working conditions had its own 'book of rules and conditions' the fact that we will all be under the same book rather than 1 2 books they will be one. To get people to change they will have to offer some sort of swetner, for those making the change. At the end of the day the staff will work for every penny and get no hours for free etc. but then, if you work over the hours you will get overtime. This is where the council might fine the pay bill going up because the number of actual employees that take work home is a lot bigger then what you might think. As the shetland people start to moan as the stoires start comming out we have to remember that all councils have to do this and its not some loonie brain child of some shetland official, although what they offer is!
  11. i do think all this posters are great. I do hope its not a SIC employee spending time at his/her work making them up, instead of doing their work. As the e mail is doing the rounds the time wasted while offices stop working to read them must be massive, still i loved it when i got it to my e mail and i passed it on too!
  12. whats the difrence with horse, cow, sheep chicken? its all animals that people eat, but can be kept as pets -id eat anyting as long as i dont see it being killed and its cooked right
