OK - it's a lengthy quote, but I love it. It just makes me wish I'd been around in the sixties....

Re: The Theme Song To Your Life

Been thinking about this a wee bit more - and realised that the Specials was really me as a teenager. I then went through Gloria Gaynor - yes, THAT one: I Will Survive First I was afraid I was petrified Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side But I spent so many nights thinking how y...

Re: Brian Cox's hair

Brian Cox returns to his musical roots. Yippee!!!

He is also doing a public lecture as part of the...

Re: Should assisted suicide be legalised in Scotland?

A bit of a read, but thought I would share... Below is an essay that I wrote for my Moral Philosophy class last semester. Looking back there are things in there that I would change as some assertions are probably a bit naive (the bit about family not taking advantage for example), but the essay lays...

Re: Truth and Happiness

Oh and by the way - never ask me for my opinion on anything if you dont want to hear the truth. CanNOT be bothered pussy-footing around 'delicate' souls who ask for an opinion and then don't like what they hear and take the huff. It's total attention seeking behaviour - "let's talk about me, bu...

Re: Truth and Happiness

Good discussion! This is what I miss..... Like Nick, I tend towards the pursuit of truth as having more meaning - reason is what makes us human, to deny reason means losing an intrinsic part of who and what we are. I really don't like being around people who are determined not to use their brains, t...

Re: Rules are to keep rules are to break

Pick a topic for debate and prepare an argument to be presented in class.

If you pick 'abortion' or 'euthansia' then you are NOT allowed to speak for.

Re: Shamelessly advertising my YouTube...

Just listened to the Tamacun one about ten times whilst stuck here at work. Fantastic stuff. Never heard the piece before but I think I must try to purchase some of that kind of music whatever it is. Spanish?

Anyway - cheers for livening up my evening.

1. Just spoken on the phone to my son who called to tell me that he is staying at a friends house tonight. He told me at the weekend that he wasn't speaking to his friend and hadn't been for weeks, so we had a good long heart to heart where I advised him to pick up the phone and just talk. Life is t...

Re: Attending Military Memorial Services

Wouldn't worry about it. I was at a graduation dinner the other night when we were invited to bow our heads for grace before the meal. I never do - not even a pretendy bow just to join in - but it is surprising how many people do at least lower their heads.....

Bit crap that the SNP aren't on there though. I know that they are not relevant to you guys darn sarf, but they are the (almost) governing party up here in the Scottish Parliament so it's a bit naughty to exclude them. There should have been an option to say where you were voting so that you would h...

Re: Vote for policies . . .

OMG I am actually a Labour party supporter and didn't realise it!! Never voted for them in my life. I've always voted Lib-Dem cos I like Ming Campbell my MP. There's no point voting labour here in NE Fife as it is a straight contest between the Lib-Dems and the Tories. And actually I selected more T...
