    MuckleJoannie got a reaction from Frances144 in Blog - Shetland Pony Everything 2013   
    I thought the point of that post was a tribute to the late Bertie Jamieson, a man who did a lot for a neglected part of the West side.

    You can listen to a rather surreal radio interview with BBC Scotland's Janice Forsyth here

    MuckleJoannie got a reaction from mellow in which network?   
    Vodafone have the best phone coverage in Shetland. O2 and EE have limited 3g coverage.
     
    Where I find a smartphone useful is using free wifi services. All SIC premises allow you to connect to the SIC guest network, as do the Recreational Trust and Mareel. Also because our broadband is through BT I have put the BT Fon app on my phone. This allows you to connect to BT wifi hotspots throughout Britain.

    Incidentally I see there has been an increase in Shetland's population between 2001 and 2011
     
    Population 2001 21,988
    Population 2011 23,200

    There were probably a lot fewer cars on the road in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

    They're looking for extras for "Shetland" including some small Shetland speaking parts.
