  1. This could be a job for Stuart Hill i dont know how it stands with udal law? You could also get Bell and his clangers on the case ?
  2. What is the troubles posers are having , licence ? finance ? does anyone know ? Bouncers with no license, that is all! The security industry association has sent a report to the Home Office thats all!
  3. The Mareel night club could stand to make a few pound now after the troubles posers are having. The new council might even grant them a 2am license, we will have to wait and see.
  4. When Mareel opens everyone over 18 will have to go and drink loads to save the council money subsidizing it, this will be a hard job but its our public duty to try.
  5. I have found that Cadburys make the best chocolate for taste and value , available at most good sweety shops too!
  6. On the Shetland News website someone from the Brae Hotel states they have 35 rooms all of them are full 50 weeks of the year. Their cheapest room is £58 per night so 35 rooms x £58 x 350 days =£710500.00 Wow!
  7. Yip its time GB fuels cut the blarney and cut the price!
  8. Its very interesting GB fuels states they make 2.6p per litre on their wholesale sales , this watered down amount of profit might be quite a tidy sum . Being the biggest retailer of fuel in Shetland also i dont think its time to take a collection up for them yet.
  9. Did you miss the macho posturing about punching people in the mouth and waving shotguns about? I remember it well it was in Nesting, land and house now sold to new owner.
  10. I only see a lot of good advice not negative response. Houses that are for sale are advertised so. If you want to buy a house that is not actively for sale you will have to offer more than the value to tempt the owner to sell.
  11. A house site within about 15 miles of lerwick seems to be worth from £25000 to £30000. With the state of the Uk economy thats a good reason for people for keeping their money in derelict houses rather than the bank or stockmarket, if you offer enough a lot of these houses could be for sale.
  12. We could start a thread listing all the abandoned houses in Shetland , large castle Scalloway no roof, Broch on mousa, old wooden shed forvic holm abandoned project, etc. Ask Stuart Hill the laws on bona vacantia.
  13. The bank of Scotland Building would be better, they only seem to be open part time now .
  14. I've looked up Lerwick on Wikipedia, its the capital of Shetland. Grats on being the first town to learn to type Try looking up jambo, a monkey from Jersey zoo!
  15. I dont like the term punters or joe punter or billy bunter i feel it is all a negative way of discribing customers. I know it was not being used in a negative context just one of my pet hates sorry.
  16. I think it is a term used in England by Del Boy discribing people he is going to rip off. I will certainly be in Mareel for a pint or two and wish it all the best but i do object to be being called a punter.
  17. I dont like the term punter used by Brian for Mareel customers, i have looked it up on Wikipedia. A patron of a public house or a patron of a brothel or a customer of a prostitute . What service is Mareel to provide ?
  18. I was speaking to an old bloke from the Scottish mainland, who said in his youth they used to put carbide in to bread for the seaguls. The gulls would take off and blow up. Young folk are getting better or its not so easy to get carbide.
  19. The first gossip i remember about burra bear [bare] was stories about the burra beach.
  20. In my opinion they make the best fudge i have ever tasted made in Shetland too. [***Google it and...***] try it for your self.
  21. Steal an idea then sue them ? the bear faced cheek of Mrs fudgy
  22. Folk just dont want to buy 78s any more times are a changing nothing to do with oh carolina.
  23. It opens the same weekend the posers is empty.
  24. Dance floors, building colour, amount of picture screens,type of music who cares ? as long as the beer is cold it will be great.
  25. Good idea but the sign would be better at the top of the lane as the bottom is nearly sea level.
