  1. I think it’s quite sweet when folk say “The Shetlands”
  2. I find how some non-Shetlanders* refer to the outer isles irksome, for example, "I was on Yell" or worse still, "I'm going onto Yell". Surely it's "I was in Yell" or, "I'm going into Yell". My theory as to why this sounds wrong is that you go 'into' a community', but you go 'onto' an landmass. Yell is a community, ipso facto you go into it. This theory is kinda backed up by the fact you go 'onto' the mainland, and the mainland is too big to be considered as a community in itself. Or something along those lines....! *IMHO, a Shetlander can be through birth or choice
  3. A good friend of mine spiks broad Shetland wee an Argentinian accent and it's a thing o beauty!
  4. I did the same, but hadn't factored in that I'd only ever hung plasterboard sitting side-by-side on walls, and the taping and filling is easy because of the tapered edges. Attempting to tape and fill end-to-end butt joins on the ceiling nearly sent me ower the edge. I can see da cracks from where Im sitting eenoo!
  5. We've been adding layers of winter blubber with the amount of lockdown cooking we've been doing at Peeriebryan Manor and whilst on the hunt for new recipes I've just rediscovered this thread. We intend on working through a few of the classics here, so in the spirit of sharing the love, here's our contribution: This Banana Bread recipe is now a staple in wir hoose as, despite bein monkeys, we quite often hiv spare bananas. 2 eggs, beaten 3 very ripe mashed bananas ⅓ cup buttermilk, or use normal milk with a 'pyup'* of lemon juice (*pyup=aboot a teaspoon) ½ cup ve
  6. I recommend https://www.flickr.com/ - it's good for bulk uploading and managing collections, and you have a lot of control over who can access and download images. I think the free account is limited to 1,000 images https://photos.google.com/ is good too. It's quite straightforward compared to Flickr but does the job. If you want to upload hi-res images you'll need paid subscription. 'Social' sharing apps like Facebook and Instagram are good if the objective is to openly share low to medium res photos far and wide. You don't have much control over who can access/download the images a
  7. It's a great show, and he's surprisingly coherent for a 73 year old punk who has ticked all the rock-n-roll-lifestyle boxes
  8. I wired the Wifi socket onto the end of a cable with a plug so I could try it in a few locations first. If my insurance company, the IET, or the BSI are reading this, I didn't do what I just said I did.
  9. Interesting article from Laurance Reed in the Spectator (Sep 2020): Freedom for Shetland If Scotland can claim independence — and a 'geographical share' of the oil regardless of population — then why can't Orkney and Shetland? The Shetland Islands Council has voted 18-2 to begin exploring options for achieving financial and political self-determination, which sounds daft – but is it any less daft than Scottish independence? Laurance Reed, a former Hebridean resident (and ex-MP), wrote about this a few years ago for The Spectator pointing out the Scottish islands could become the Dubai of
  10. I just fitted wan o dis fellows. It's a game changer! Wifi and mobile signal right through the hoose noo! https://www.screwfix.com/p/british-general-800-series-13a-2-gang-sp-switched-wi-fi-extender-socket-2-1a-1-outlet-usb-charger-white/937hv#_=p

  12. Hi @BigMouth. You can change your notification settings by clicking the peerie bell at the top of the page when you're logged in, and a link called 'notification settings' should be available in the top right of the pop-up window. From there you should be able to set the frequency and type of notifications. Let us know how you get on.
  13. I had exactly the same problem with the lack of SMS on Vodafone Wificall until I updated the software on my iPhone. Now it's text-message-a-go-go

  15. @Davie P, I hope you don't mind but we added a poll to your post. We used the same wording as the 2014 referendum and added an undecided option too.
