I wouldn't fancy a pint of the Clyde. But having said that, I just went sailing on Lake Ontario and I wouldn't fancy a pint of that, either.

And have you noticed that if you draw lines between these three stadia it forms a triangle? Add in Firhill and its only slightly off being a square. We can only guess as to what strange forces have been at work...

Yes OK, this is a pointlessly oblique way of saying **COUGH** Firhill **COUGH**

*I can just about work out where my house is!
Just follow the corse of the River Leven and work it out from the relevant bend........*

(Looks like Killie and Irvine too)

*Also Loch Lomond*
I can always rely on this forum to make myself feel about 10 times worse than I did before

The stern section looks a bit odd, but from what I'm just reading, it's
the ships nightclub.
