  1. I got one like that after the infestation we had a couple of years ago. The only fly it killed is one I found resting on thet bars enjoying the heat and when I pinged the grid he flew off into the zapper.
  2. I'm still lurking here every night.
  3. My knowledge of Unst folk doen't go very far. The best place to start would be Facebook. These two pages are very active so somebody should be able to help you. Shetland Genealogy https://www.facebook.com/groups/shetlandgenealogyAndFHS/?multi_permalinks=10159207372569038%2C10159207360189038%2C10159200124114038&notif_id=1623507189526904&notif_t=group_activity&ref=notif Stories n Photos fae Unst https://www.facebook.com/groups/342850209143008
  4. Is this him? https://www.bayanne.info/Shetland/getperson.php?personID=I102693&tree=ID1
  5. The SIC don't do this any more. As far as I am aware you need to take it to a local bottle bank.
  6. WIth Boris's proposed trip to India, which was cancelled, and the Australian agreement it appears to me that Boris is trying to reconnect with the UK's former colonies and restore our former glories as an imperial power.
  7. Aaron Pottinger didn't instal our boiler but he has done the servicing. https://www.facebook.com/A-J-Pottinger-121586104702325/
  8. Ian Blackford's expenses seem to be similar to Aliatair Carmichael's, which is not surprising as they represent some of the most remote constituencies in the UK..https://www.theipsa.org.uk/mp-staffing-business-costs/your-mp/ian-blackford/4390 https://www.theipsa.org.uk/mp-staffing-business-costs/your-mp/alistair-carmichael/1442
  9. The Co-op was the only shop in Brae before it was expanded. In my opinion if the Co-op want to open a new branch in the Central Mainland they should do it in Tingwall. There is no shop there and it is expanding faster than Scalloway at the moment.
  10. Rearo are still going strong. I had cause to phone them a few months back to see if they would accept back a gas cylinder I had got from them 25 years ago. They said the only way to get rid of old gas cylinder was to return them to their depot as the SIC won't accept them at the dump.
  11. The output from a diesel generating station can be regulated to a certain extent to cope with demand. They can boost output immediately when demand surges. The classic example I saw was when tv soaps finish at 8 pm every evening the demand for power surges as people switch on the kettle to make a cup of tea for 8 o'clocks. By contrast wind generator output fluctuates wildly. I read a while ago that car charging systems are regulated by software that responds to those fluctuations and smooths the output for the other electricity users.
  12. The Orkney one seems to be a private experimental network rather than one of the main phone carriers. I think there is something similar planned for the windfarm.
  13. The Shetland Visitor site allows you to search for accomodation that welcomes pets. https://www.shetlandvisitor.com/search?name=&accommodation-type=&area=&star-rating=&sleeps=0&internet-access=&pets=Yes&disabled-access=&smoking=
