My mind was taken back to the early 60s when my wife and I had our first date. We met at Timpsons shoe shop, now a convenience store, and I knew she was the girl for me when she brought a box of chocolates with her (no gold digger here).
We stepped into the new library and right away the lady at reception could not have been more helpful and got us set up in a booth to watch a film.
The film we chose was The Bowler and the Bunnet, starring Sean Connery, about Fairfields Shipyard in Govan and while watching the film we were delighted to see a ship being launched in 1967, the year we were married.
This was a lovely afternoon, going on a journey back in time. Great to see an old jewel restored.
I NOTICE Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon have not said a word about Glasgow University students voting 'no' in their own independence referendum, even though Nicola was up at the university trying to drum up support.
I'm sure they would have been falling over themselves to be on TV if the students had voted 'yes'.
The SNP wanted young people to be able to vote in the referendum, because they thought they would be more likely to believe SNP propaganda, but it looks like young Scots are more intelligent than the SNP thought.
THE arguments surrounding the introduction of the planned 'bedroom tax' prove once and for all that the Tories and their LibDem stooges just don't get it.
Where are all the one and two-bedroom properties people are supposed to move to to avoid paying this iniquitous tax?
The answer is, there aren't any.
People who dwell in mansions are ill-placed to tell others how to live.
