My only fear is that it might herald a very bad winter.
According to a weather pundit on the radio the other day, last year had proper seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. And we know how bad that winter was.
This year the seasons seem to have been all over the place. I'm not sure which I prefer.

Win was Magic
MANY thanks for the tickets I won for The Magic of Scotland show at the Pavilion.
I took in the show and thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was a miserable wet night but the show was lively, bright and noisy!
Everything needed to cheer you up!

SO both the winner and runner-up are "delighted" with the result they achieved at the recent Hillhead by-election (November 18).
With a turnout that must rank as one of the lowest ever recorded (only 13.65% of those entitled to vote), I fail to see any cause for delight, either on the part of the candidates or of anyone who values democracy.
The fact that just over one in 10 of the electorate bothered to vote is a clear demonstration of the sense of political disillusionment and disengagement felt by many in Glasgow.
Perhaps if voters felt that their elected members were listening and acting upon their concerns, rather than having the city run by unelected and unaccountable officials on huge salaries, then people might start to believe that by using their vote they really could make a difference.

BRILLIANT to see Lobey Dosser in the Evening Times (November 18).
I grew up reading the strips and many of his catchphrases have passed into family use.
I'm sure the Sheriff would love to know he's still making big kids smile.
