    The whole way through this the communication has been dreadful and quite often we've felt completely in the dark. What did they expect in the OPD block? There is so little space in there you have no choice but to put it in the corridor.
  2. Same problems in Bressa, although fine early this morning (7- but now on a go slow again
  3. This is what I got tonight from speedtest: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2955715298.png Whilst BT are saying that my download speed is 5.33 and upload is 0.35. Not trusting the BT one at all as having problems and I did the test twice on both. Anyone else having this problem on the BT checker?
  4. Thank you for posting all of this, it is appreciated. I've signed the IDS petition, I think it asks him to do it for a year but canna mind. Personally I'd want cameras on him 24/7 if he was doing that and the cooker or washing machine to break someway through it.
  5. I would like to say how helpful Lerwick DIY are. Very good customer service.
  6. Thanks for help. Going to call Vets first and see what they recommend as use a wheelchair, bit tricky steering chair and holding cat carrier. I did see MJ's thread last year but got a bit riled and decided to post when calmed down and then forgot about it. Hopefully will get to bus consultation if I'm able.
  7. Does anyone ken if either the Scalloway or Bixter bus goes near the Vets?
  8. The Co-op Bank has been one I've been thinking of changing to, so I'm fairly happy.
  9. What's folks reactions to this? Also has anyone received a letter from Lloyds TSB about this? I've not so far. On one hand I would've preferred to hear by email/letter from them than read it in the news but on the other hand that's all the letter would have said so possibly waste of paper/time. I am really glad that the staff will be retained. Sorry if it's in wrong bit, wasn't sure if here or Consumer Advice was best place.
  10. I've not seen it yet but if I do will post it on here.
  11. Brilliant night, thoroughly enjoyed it. I've a plan of going to one of his gigs down south and getting him to autograph a raffle ticket or would that send him into a nervous breakdown?
  12. I'm usually right in there with Eurovision but missed it passed couple of years. Next year will make a concerted effort. Anyone go to watch it at the Staney Hill Hall? Think it would've been a good laugh.
  13. The Karamel Sutra one was out a couple of years ago and I was disappointed when they took it off the market but glad to see it back. Yumm doesn't cover it! Not tried any of the other in the range has anyone else?
  14. There is the Bressay Hall, booking can be made contacting 01595 820 389. The only problem with that would be the cost of coming over and transport but worth considering.
  15. I think that Parkour is great and having seen some of it for the first time last year was really impressed with them. I feel younger ones still get a bum rap at times. If they bide in playing they get gip for it and if they are outside on bikes/hanging around the street the same (doesn't seem to have changed in the 20 odd years after I was a teenager). Unlinked, being of a Pagan persuasion myself when does the wise bit kick in?
  16. Only found out 30 mins ago, but got our tickets
  17. Oh to be back working at J.J. Taylors where it felt like we had every kind of brown bag known to man......
  18. I go out less often now, when I was late teens/early twenties I was out most weekends. I know I bang on about it but being in a wheelchair kinda limits the amount of pubs you can go into, plus I'm just not as able to do the whole "going out" thing much these days.
  19. Something similar on both counts here and do a couple of other ones. I keep thinkin about getting a game for the pc as I used to use the PS2 a lot (was the ex's not mine) and thoroughly enjoyed it.
  20. Agree wi tlady, "pester power" sometimes gets results.
  21. engineer21 doesna make any sense to me either. To me it's no like consultants have done wonders for decision making at the SIC, I'd love to know if other councils use them as much.
  22. I'd encourage folk to stand as well. I stood and got in last year, unelected due to the fact there weren't enough folk to have an election. I'm finding it interesting and able to put folks points of view across, who would not normally get involved with Community Council stuff, as well as my own.
  23. Off Topic but hopefully they'll start enforcing the Disabled Parking bays. Confronted a van driver about it a couple of months ago who replied to me "I'll only be a couple of minutes" then walked off. The fact I was in a wheelchair didna seem to bother him. Then found him parked in another Disabled Space about 15 mins later. What was worse that the police drove past and did nothing.
