  1. He is not alone....and it is SAD !!! " On 5 January 2011 HMV announced that profits would be at the lower end of analyst's forcasts due to falling sales, resulting in the share price falling by 20%[20] and an announcement of the groups intention to close 40 HMV stores, as well as 20 Waterstone's stores, mainly in towns where the company operates at multiple locations. The first of the Store Closures began at the end of January 2011."..... ...I'm old enough to want a CD that I can hold, read the lyrics inside and so on....I guess that I'm old.....
  2. We have started to get some nice pictures from Kozetland1 !! http://shetlopedia.com/Lerwick_Up_Helly_Aa_2011

  4. Well......."dump" or "jump".....it does not matter at all.. ..... What I meant to say was :"There is a perfect match for everyone" ......You just do not know WHEN he/she comes into your life...
  5. You can find the most perfect partner online.............when you are not searching for it...........he/she can just dump into your computer.........I know that !!
  6. And Fjool, about "Centigrades", it was known until 1948 as centigrade. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celsius

  8. In Norway it is called "Frostrøyk", that would be something like "Frost Reek" in Shetland I think, ("Røyk" means smoke)
  9. http://photos.shetland-museum.org.uk/image.php?i=87178&r=2&t=4&x=1 Is this the same place in the 1930's ???
  10. In cases like this, I'm very happy to live in Norway.....i think the Norwegian Royal family has been more in the "top news" in foreign countries, (except some crap sensationel magazines which nobody really reads), than in this country.....strange....but we know that they do a good job for Norway, and then we let them have their private life alone.... Britain should have learned to do that too.... And if you don't want to read or hear about the newly engaged couple....then just don't buy the papers and switch the TV to another channel.....Discovery or something else you can learn something of..
  11. Oh dear....... Why can't you Shetlinkers just congratulate the couple...????... They have been together for many years, so I guess they must love each other.....she must be a VERY brave woman to marry a coming British King.... Be happy with them....Happiness and love don't hurt you......
  12. WILLIE NELSON !!!! He is the only artist I would travel to Shetland to see....EVEN in winter !!!!
  13. Think about what you have done now Longdog...........there are two puzzle crazy persons in this house.......nothing else will be done for a while..........
