    The weather

    Didn't we have a tornado a few years back? Can remember we were at Collafirth Pier with the boat when the wind got up out of no where and bins on the pier started heading off up the pier and all sorts. It was (as someone else has said) rather exciting. yesterday wasn't that bad, the power stayed on in Northmavine, although it was touch and go for a while.

    Womens Rugby?

    I spoke to him when he was at Urafirth doing a taster session as I used to play at school then uni, so would love to get back into it.
  4. thanks gang, will get on to all three and see who's got the best price for me.
  5. Looking for advice on who I can ask to butcher up 3 pigs which I have going to slaughter within the next two weeks. Used SLMG for my own, but need someone who can make up sausages etc for me without too much bother and for a reasonable price.
  6. Well they saved me £15 on a half tank of fuel, I can't remember the last time half a tank cost me £30! Scott and Phoebe are fantastic, the previous owners were fine enough, but to walk in on the new owners first of second day and be welcomed with a big cheery 'Hi. how's things this morning?' was fantastic. They are always chatty, alway pleasant and now they're doing something about the ridiculous fuel prices we pay in the islands. As he said to me today they have lost money hand over fist by lowering their prices, but rather than worry about it they did it, so hats off to them!
  7. A friend of mine works on a site called Born Free Forums, its for people interested in Unassisted Childbirth http://www.bornfreeforums.com
  8. my car doesn't like going over 50, it hates the muppets that insist on trying to drive their little cars and pickups into my back seat even more! the way the roads have been in the morning this last few days even with the gritters being out early, going much over 40 isn't a great option
  9. its guaranteed to be snowing, thick mist or heaving it down....
  10. Try looking at this website - they were issuing alerts for this area i.e. Kp greater than 4 all day yesterday http://www.softservenews.com/Aurora.htm Thank you
  11. I got the news through shetland wildlife on facebook, but nothing from Aurora Watch. Generally when I get the aurora e-mails, its cloudy here.
  12. I felt sorry for a fellow fuel pump attendee this week when his bill was £177.50, suddenly my gripes about the car costing £70 to fill disappeared, if he fills up as often as I need to, its nearly £700 a month! Crazy, when the hell will they get the idea
  13. Having witnessed some of the driving on the way home tonight in what was really rather crappy dark soggy conditions, I'll reiterate the need for a cycle lane on the main road from north to south!
