  1. Well judging by Volvo's announcement that they are planning to be purely hybrid/electric by 2019, Crashbox may well be right.
  2. Maybe if Wir Shetland members didn't bicker so much people would be more inclined to listen to their aims. Just a thought.
  3. I don't know of any but I reckon there would be interest if someone with the inclination was looking to start a group.
  4. I think everyone with a Shetland-related blog should post their links to every day. Because why not?
  5. Ghostrider, you were told in the op it was 'yun wife', so you are excused
  6. I was just about to ask why you are assuming he is a she?
  7. I'm not sure, but I sent them an email in January and I'm still waiting for a reply.
  8. I watched some of these when they went out free recently. They interview people that have used frankincense /cannabis oil/changing eating habits etc. What struck me was many of the success stories came from people that had conventional treatment, and decided not to carry on with follow up treatment and instead use ttac's recommended treatments. Ttac pretty much ignored the possibility that maybe the conventional treatment worked.

    Do you think if we asked nicely, Norway would let us come and play with them instead?

    I'm still confused Colin. Your post and further 'clarification' make no sense.

    I would respond - but I'm not very sure of the point you are trying to make, Colin. Why would they have commitment to an 'out' vote?

    If you choose just this one issue to focus on when deciding on a candidate, you stand a very good chance of choosing a candidate that you disagree with on issues that they have much more say in. So maybe it is a good thing they all agree - it means people might pay attention to the the issues that the elected representative will actually have a say in. Voting on the basis of the EU referendum is very short sighted.

    Quite possibly just you. IMO the opinions of the candidates regarding the referendum is largely irrelevant, as they get one vote each on it, same as the rest of us. It's a one-off referendum, and as such shouldn't be a focus when it comes to deciding on an elected representative that will have a much larger say on all political matters affecting Scotland for the next few years than they do with regards to the referendum.
  14. There's a knit and chat group in Mareel on a (I think) Thursday afternoon. It's supporting people with Alzheimer's but I think anyone is welcome.
  15. The series is based on a series of books called Shetland - should they have changed the location to somewhere fictitious? When they come to film a book, they want to keep it as close to the book as possible, but they do need to find places suitable to film. It might not always be possible to keep it completely accurate.
  16. Most of the coffee places use machines supplied by the same person, as far as I know - and they also provide the training. Maybe they prefer weaker coffee..
  17. I think £1.40 for an eat-in tart is very reasonable.
  18. As far as I'm aware, the majority of aircraft engineering done 'on-island' is helicopter engineering. Certainly at Scatsta airport the aeroplane engineers flew up for the day from Aberdeen, whereas the helicopter ones stayed locally. There are three airports, one is run for the oil industry, the helicopters are run by Bristow. Tingwall airport has small aircraft that fly to the smaller islands. And Sumburgh - there are helicopters based there too. Good luck!
  19. Love mine! You need to book your seats on plenty of time though.
  20. You have to wonder about their maths skills.. 11.2 is not double 7.7.
  21. Who said it's everywhere? I have yet to see you back up your claims with ANYTHING even close to evidence. If you are taking what I said to mean it's everywhere you are misinterpreting what I said. Effectively I said it MAY be more visible. Not that it is everywhere. 'Parents are even supplying the drink'. Uhuh. Another unsubstantiated comment which you yourself admit is hearsay. Just WHAT are you hoping to achieve with this thread?
  22. I'm not justifying it - but I have yet to see any evidence that the perception that you have is any way close to the truth. I don't see parents actively encouraging their children to get drunk. The parent of teenagers that I know allow their kids some drink for occasions, but actively encourage them to drink sensibly. I know more than one parent to have been really pissed off with their teenager that drank way more than they should have. My teenagers go out way less than I ever did at that age. We had country discos galore, not to mention heading out to the North Star and the Excelsior with fake id. Maybe the difference is, id is harder to fake so the drinking is more likely to be in public? I don't know, but in my experience, there is less of a 'problem' now than there was when I was young. But wotsit, you still haven't said where you are seeing all these drunk kids in public? I have to be curious as to why you are hanging around where they are...
  23. 'Don't go around actively encouraging this sort of behaviour in public' OK 1) who is encouraging it? 2) what behaviour? Blame the parents all you like, I don't know about you though, but I lied to my parents. 'No, I'm not going to the cross for new year, I'm going to a party'. And who can remembers da fort at midsummer? Anyone complaining about 'kids now' did not experience 'kids then'. So wotsit, where are you seeing all this underage drinking in public? How often? How many kids? What is the behaviour that you find an issue? What are you doing to address the issue, other than having a pleepse online?
