Indeed, VT. But thank you both, gents.

A braw photo, Dazza.

To be honest I wish the ERI had never gone away from there, to lose such continuity from its origins, and a central location (not to say the new one is like an out-of-town shopping centre, and glossing over the scandalous financial doings entirely) but it's a bit late for such sentiments.

Caves and tunnels :)

Scientists explore Edinburgh's mystery cave network

New light is being shed on a mysterious network of tunnels and caves carved out of rock underneath Edinburgh.
Scientists using radar imaging equipment have discovered the ancient passageways at "Gilmerton Cove" extend much further than originally thought.

Right, who on the city council do we think was getting backhanders to shut down the Royal Overseas League Club?

I've stayed there twice, and the building seemed perfectly sound to me.
Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

On a day trip to Edinburgh in October I noticed some double red lines at the side of a road.
I believe this means you can drop someone off but you can't park in the area.

Do they have these lines in Glasgow?
I believe they have them in parts of London.

Haven't seen them anywhere in Northern Ireland.
