  1. I phoned Streamline who said: If the Return label the company provides has a Hermes Barcode, you take the parcel to them, the depot at Garthspool If the Return label has a "Collect Plus" logo- you take it to Sound Service. So I have opened a 'Return' with Ebay and await instructions...
  2. Thanks, I'll phone them and ask, and post on here what they say.
  3. Hello Mods- I must have joined shetlink years ago under a different log-in name, using my main, now-only e-mail address. I have no idea what name I would have used then- would it be possible for that account to be deleted, as I keep getting asked to update my e-mail address, as the one I had used for this name, mogling, has been disabled by BT as it wasn't being used enough. When I try to change the email address as requested, it says that "That email address is already in use" Thank you in advance!
  4. I have a faulty dehumidifier to be returned to the company, they only use: "Hermes Return Service, which you will need to drop off at a Hermes Collection Point which are usually local convenient stores." Whereabout would I need to get it dropped off to up here? Thanks
  5. Thanks George, I was planning to buy copies of the CD to post sooth. Phoned the hospital today to ask and they think the CDs are only being sold at GBH and Montfield?
  6. Does anyone know where I could buy copies of the NHS Shetland choir CD in aid of the scanner appeal? thanks
  7. Thanks for that link Davie - another Cunningsburgh Show photo with their van they sold ice cream from! I left a comment on his photo site and he e-mailed me a thank you, nice chap.
  8. http://www.tomkiddphotography.co.uk I only found out yesterday that you can see Tom Kidd's brilliant collection of black and white photos from the late 70's. Absolutely engrossing - recognising people and seeing how places have changed.
  9. https://www.derby.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/conservation/peregrines/peregrine-camera-1/ One of the birds nesting webcams I watched over the spring from pairing, egg laying, hatching, feeding chicks and finally fledging. Peregrines on Derby Cathedral. Sometimes you can spot one of them perched on the ledge - do Peregrines migrate? There were also 4 osprey nests, a barn owl, a swift and kestrel nest webcams I was addicted to... Throughout last winter I had to check every day that the 2 sheep, Leila and Pi were okay. Sometimes you see one of the older couple come in with the bag of yow nuts! http://www.lochness.co.uk/livecam/
  10. maybe too late now, but you could try Allans of Gillick at the Ness- they sell clothes ,or the Aywick shop on Yell? Ethels Garage shop in Baltasound is another one that sells everything.
  11. Thanks for that Crashbox, food for thought... https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b9f77w Radio Scotland 'Out of Doors' last saturday, Mark Stephen interviewed Lesley Riddoch very good listening. 'Mark speaks to journalist, author and broadcaster Lesley Riddoch about her experience of Scandinavian countries and how they might potentially offer ideas about shaping rural areas in Scotland.'
  12. "things like "please let us know you're preferred course of action" and "the hole or part there, of, the property". Both genuine examples from the same document." Sheesh, they need to hire properly trained legal secretaries - should set a spelling & grammar test of typing-up dictation as part of the job interview? Would those errors mean it's not legally-binding then? Had a few interesting medical letters - the typing-up of Consultant / Doctors' dictation.American spell-checkers / auto-correct and predictive text doesn't help. "The historically perverse legal style of writing is actually quite fun to read" True, but you're never quite sure if you are actually signing away your immortal soul at times?
  13. "I have been horrified at the lack of basic grammar in many situations, most notably in letters from lawyers. It is hard to put any faith in their knowledge of law when they can barely write." I had it explained to me that members of the Law Society don't actually speak or write 'English': their Society has its own language. Probably why they charge so much for writing Lawyers letters?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b0chsz {or catch on soundcloud through their facebook page} Radio Shetland late programme tonight was excellent, all about mythical {or not?} creatures - Trows, Njugles, Selkie folk, Giants... Lots of interviews, stories, very interesting and very well done.
  15. Well done all of you! Good luck with your next ventures.
