  1. Joke continued: from the porn channel to the fishing channel, and it's driving her round the bend. She eventually says: " For Christ's sake leave it on the porn channel, you know how to fish!"
  2. One for the women! Middle-aged couple sitting in the lounge and he keeps flicking the channel over from the fishing channel to the porn channel, from the porn channel to the fishing channel, from the fishing channel to the porn channel,
  3. That's fair comment George re both Gaelic and Norn, if we wish to go that far back. Apart from that I have to commend you on your analysis of good grammar and the excellent example you gave, re "helping uncle Jack off his horse." or other amended grammatical version. Hilarious! Thankyou for that!
  4. Well George Gaelic certainly has its place, and I would like it to thrive but only in the areas where it belongs. Shetland isn't one of them, Norn is, and though some words survive it is pretty well lost, sadly! We don't need gaelic road signs in Shetland, there's more people speaking Chinese here, and Chinese has as much historical significance. The English language is used universally and many people seeking sanctuary choose to come here for exactly that reason. It's a wonderful language and spoken by more people on this planet than any other.
  5. Spelling IS important though George, call it nitpicking if you wish, but unless we uphold standards we will all be at the mercy of modern textspik. Dear God! The very idea is horrifying, and reading as a pleasure would become a nightmare. Spelling of the English language is sadly under serious threat, the threat is real. Too many of our citizens are happy to dismiss it as of no importance. Mainly because they can't be bothered.
  6. It might be an idea if Tarsus learnt how to spell "grammar" before making comment on it.
  7. Irishman taking a driving test. What does a single yellow line mean? No parking at all. What does a double yellow line mean? No parking at all, at all.
  8. Hello again George. My results from Living DNA:- Scandinavia, 18.6% Orkney/Shetland, 31.9% Ireland/Scotland, 22.6% England, 26.9% I'm happy with that.
  9. Well George, I wonder about the original source of your DNA, have you checked that out? You might be foreign too, perish the thought!
  10. I see Durham police are looking at fresh evidence re Dominic Cummings, with possibility of prosecution. I notice that there is a deafening silence from SNP ranks now despite them baying for his blood a short time ago. Perhaps this silence is due to the leader of pack baying for blood, Margaret Ferrier, having reappeared at Westminster. Just saying.
  11. Well there ye go then, SNP noses in the trough too then eh!. All the same south and north of the border. Interestingly, I was reading a while ago that an MEP only has to serve two terms and has no cause for further worries about his pension. He's cracked it! Maybe, just maybe, that's why so many want things to remain as they are, able to delve and wallow in the vast trough of money surrounding them in Brussels. Plenty of corruption here and a damned sight more among the Brussels bureaucrats.
  12. The Tory poltician is mentioned here, so is the the little green man. Why though no mention of the SNP politicians here, I would have thought their support must have been significant when contract awarded????? No murmurs of protest from them as far as I remember. Possibly a bit of dark dealing here too in the Holyrood chambers. The same as elsewhere, just kept a bit quieter in Scotland by our rulers.
  13. Quite right to point this out George but that's the way things are in the UK nationally. One has to wonder about all or politicians after the hash Serco made of running the probation service when it was privatised some years ago, and the scandal when they were running the criminal tagging process. The probation service is now back to government run, and Serco was fined millions for fraud when the tagging scandal broke. They were even claiming for people who had died. Despite this, the Scottish government puts this company in charge of the Northern Isles ferries. They got the contract despite other parties offering a better deal. What's going on behind the scenes here then?
  14. There's corruption in politics everywhere, there's no purity in politics. One thing however is certain, that lunatic Trump needs to be removed from the position he now holds. Hopefully the US electorate will remove him from office, for all our sakes.
  15. Well yes George, there is an awful lot of people, (or a lot of awful people whichever way you want to look at it), now in Shetland that vote SNP. Oil has brought new wealth to Shetland and it has also brought changes many of which have been for the better. It also has its downside. Shetland has always been very different to mainland Scotland, throughout history, and I dont fully understand why people would wish to change that. Clans, kilts, and tartan tam o shanters have their place in mainland Scotland and should be left there. The SNP which belongs mainly in the central belt, is interested in Shetland only because of the oil, gas, and fishing wealth that is concentrated here. To pretend otherwise is pure fantasy, politicians are all the same they will look after themselves and their cronies. The SNP are being torn apart from within, despite and partly because of the iron hand of nippy Nicola and her husband. This will get worse before it gets better. Banner waving, anti English rhetoric, and tartan kilted terrorists should be confined to that central belt, and Shetland should be allowed to continue in its historically welcoming way to all comers. Shetland should not have to change its ways to suit anyone, whether from mainland Scotland, Ireland, Wales, or England. Or incomers from anywhere else for that matter.
