      Strange question for you Livepool lads or lasses  :D (( well I think it's strange coz don't know the answer.  ;D I was watching Coronation Street last nite and they were filing at The Liverpool / Albert docks I think. 

      Why was there a load of pad locks on the chains running along the Mersey??

      Ps.. Yes I know it was sad watching the Street but it is Manchester based before you Brookside guides start knocking me  ;D

      Love locks I believe they're called, quite simply to signify an everlasting bond.

      Joe Cocker's version of With A Little Help From My Friends is f**king sh*t. I can't stand it. Melodramatic w*nk.

      Sorry friends - just had to let that one go.

      Just flicked past the Arsenal pre season game on Quest.

      I've seen better quality pictures on some streams. Really strange to see that on a TV channel.

      Home after 2 week in the Royal with a smashed hip.

      Yesterday the physios took me for a walk along the corridor and we sat down on a bench for a break, the big news, or not, was that Theresa May was visiting the old Royal where I was, and then the unopened new hospital.
      There was a security guy opposite us and the next thing all these f**king joggers swept by with cameras, microphones and f**k knows what with May in the middle of them.

      One of the physios said 'did you see that she didn't even look up, never mind speak to anyone',  'never mind that' I said 'I had the opportunity to kick the birch and could have got away with it, citing involuntary reaction following post-operative trauma'.

      What a b***ard.

      Worryingly youtube homepage sent me to this live streaming of some zoomers insisting that the world is flat. What the f**k's this all about? Was in Inverness last week and there was a billboard just before the Kessock Bridge with graffiti sprayed telling passers by to 'Research the Earth is flat'.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDEwlFEkM-k

      Always thought Flat Earthers was just a joke term to throw at conspiracy nutjobs but clearly not. These guys are bringing it into the mainstream.

      Just driven up Woodend Ave, Speke, down Mackets Lane and through Gateacre to Broadgreen, on every road we had to avoid bomb craters that could have possibly damaged the suspension or exhaust pipes.
      .
      The same situation applies wherever you go in Liverpool and makes a mockery of our
      bulbous Lord Mayor's plan to build a stadium for the club he supports.
      Joe Anderton wants to build everton's proposed new ground with rate-payers money.

      Fix the f**king roads tubby and f**k you and neverton.

      Roads rounds Speke were brutal when we were down for Legends match mate.

      For what it’s worth it’s similar up here......whatever they’re putting in the road surfacing just doesn’t stand up to snow.......

      *edit - up here is actually Cornwall right now.......but I meant the People’s Republic of Scotlandia ;)

      It is unbelievable mate. The f**king rates we pay and the clown we have runnving the city proposes a multi million project that only a minority support and the vital, day to day, essential jobs are a casualty. I wouldn't vote for the fraud again.

      My main worry is taking away attention from the people the party is for because I'm being a little different. Be fine though! ;D

      I moved to London recently for a new job/fixed term job I started. First time I've ever worked outside of Scotland and for the first half of the first week I really felt like an alien. I've been to London before but never alone - you think you know it all from what is seen of the place on tv and all that you've seen of it in the flesh in past visits but you don't. It's far deeper and complex than those facades and because of that it's challenging. I have gradually settled down and am getting a bit more familiar with my work, colleagues and surrounding and I think I'll enjoy my time here - familiarity will breed enjoyment and relaxation within the place but it still wrestles with emotions at unexpected points.

      The weird thing is, it wasn't long I was in London (less than a day) before I started pining for Glasgow, a place I've not lived in or visited for a year and a half and yet during this time I had no real desire to return there. It must be connected to resuming that city vibe but pining for an urban way of life (I'm rural northern Scottish guy) that I knew best (and trusted best) and in Glasgow that was definitely the place. I'm a terrible one for comparing and contrasting the now with the past, without giving the present a chance. My mind has a great ability to crystalise the past to perfection which never allows me to look at the present in a bright shining light by comparison and while that can be beautiful for divulging memories with it's intense focus of moments long gone it's terrible for getting yourself into a melancholic, depressive stupor that leads to saying about the present 'things aren't as good as they were'. Even if that is a load of bollocks (and it is) I realise it's a very powerful and influencing emotion/thought process and one that I can't allow to dictate my thoughts and feelings. I think that pensive mindset is a big part of my desire in wanting to go back to Glasgow ASAP - partly exaggerated  . Of course, I can always visit in the next few months and such a thought excites me a lot but I think in the long term I will look to use my experience in London to return to Glasgow as a far better and more experienced individual than when I last left. You can't turn your back on Glasgow!

      Had a dream I was banned from here because I didn’t like the controversial new 3rd kit that used a different logo. Everyone said it was disrespectful to the club and I was banned for life. I then phoned JD who’s receptionist said he was too annoyed even to speak to me ever again!

      Very weird!
