Old song: She's my peri-weri-weri-weri-winkle...

Does anyone know this song, and where it's from? My gran used to sing it to me in the late 80s / early 90s. Google isn't throwing anything up: Sheeee's myyyy.... Peri-weri-weri-weri-winkle, My jeely in (and?) my jam, My hairy (mackanary?), My bonny wee bit spam. She's my bunch of tulips and my Cock-...

Makerspaces in Glasgow

It's been many years since I've haunted the towerblock demolition forums around here, but I'm back to pick the brains of the wise and the beautiful...

New Mural - George Street, Graham Hills Building

Does anyone know the (hi)story of this mural going up on the east wall of the Graham Hills Building? Someone suggested it might be inspired by Lanark, by Alasdair Gray, but couldn't remember there being a boat involved in that.

Re: 14 Shaftesbury Street Demolition

ian - I get this message when I try to get to the SafeDem flyer: "Please try again. If you keep seeing this message, go to Service status to check whether there's a problem with SkyDrive or to report the issue." Any chance you could point to it some other way? Ta! Failing that, anyone else...

Inverkip Power Station Chimney Blowdown

Hullo all! Lovely to be back (again...) I was reminded of the old Google Map today when a friend asked me if I knew anything about the timing for the blowdown of the power station chimney at Inverkip on the 28th July. A BBC report says "10 o'clock" but we're not sure if that's am (as would...

Re: Inverkip Power Station

Anyone got a confirmed source for a blowdown time? EDIT: I started a thread in the usual place for conversations about demolitions too. Sorry - not trying to cross-post - just trying to catch the right audience. I found this thread from a search but I wouldn't have caught it if I was doing my usual ...

Re: Statues To Be Removed From George Square

When was it last renovated? I remember they dug it all up, cleaned the statues, laid new electrical outlets for events, installed brighter lights, and laid a new surface. It was in the last 5 years or so but I can't find any reference to it yet online.

Anyone got any evidence it ever happened?
