  1. If anyone is missing a tortoiseshell cat in the lerwick area, please call on 695777.
  2. Hi there, Ford & Mazda Garage (used to be sutherlands) are motability dealers. Ford Galaxy is a seven seater and has 3 full seats in the middle row so you can definately get 3 childs seats on the same row and im not sure if there are any other cars that you can do this with.
  3. Why not make it illegal?? because it is currently legal and the UK would be in uproar.
  4. In my opinion the answer to this is quite simple, "dont be so bloody stupid" of course it shouldn't be legalised. Unless under some prescription scheme for pain relief etc.
  5. reading the shetland bus, very good book and incredibly interesting.
  6. ticket now sold @ £20 thank you everyone for asking and hope you all manage to get one.
  7. £20 is a sensible offer, it covers my costs
  8. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.†“I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes†replies Watson. “And what do you deduce from that?†Watson ponders for a minute. “Well, Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. But what does it tell you, Holmes?†Holmes is silent for a moment. “Watson, you idiot!†he says. “Someone has stolen our tent!â€
  9. I have posted a ticket for the levellers in the classifieds section if anyone knows anyone that is wanting to go to the concert.
  10. Great advice Heimdal, if you can get out with someone that is experienced then you will definately benefit as they will tell you all the areas to look out for. I went for a while without doing a day skipper course but I did have experience in the areas that I visited so all was fine, however, the day skipper is an excellent course and will make you far more aware of what to do and how to read charts properly (planning routes, tides, boat lights/shapes, buoys, entering harbours etc) it definately gave me more confidence. If you don't do the day skipper course, then the minimum i would recommend are some charts, plotter, compass, vhf and some spares for the engine e.g belts, filters, lifejackets are an absolute must and flares. I would not recommend photocopies of charts as they are nowhere near as clear to read unless colour. If it's black and white you'd spend most of the time trying to distinguish whats sea and whats land. (sounds silly i know but try it if you want) Also, if you don't have knowledge of local areas, the charts and plotter are unbeatable as some of the voe's have rocks near the entrance which can't be seen unless the tide is right. For example, whiteness is a bit of a dogs leg to get into. So, you would check on the plotter and cross reference on the chart to make sure your not missing anything (or missing everything i probably should say). If you do decide to buy a boat then can be worrying going out with no experience, but once you know the areas, you will definately have some of the best times ever with scenery, fishing, wildlife etc. Best wishes ,and i'd still recommend doing the day skipper course.
