    Hey tyre fans! Our bike trailer keeps getting punctures. Trailer currently has no-name 20" x 2 1/8" tyres. Any recommendation for that size (or close enough) with a decent amount of puncture proofing?

    Two legs rather than four, apparently, though it seems that's a convention only really observed in British heraldry.

    Nice clue ;)

    90% sure I know this one - if the weather holds I will be in the area on Sunday morning!

    For indyref #1 I started off as a no, but had some sympathy for independence. In the end, I ended up voting yes. One part of my calculus was: EU membership for iScotland would likely happen shortly after independence, thus travel/trade etc with former UK would be fine.

    Should there be indyref #2, who knows? With everything going on, I don't have the brain space to think about such things. (TBH I am hoping that there isn't going to be a referendum too soon, even though my starting position would be a yes)

    Its going to be which barked slogan or fear mongering is heard the loudest. I suspect "YoU woNT hAvE suRviVed tHe PanDEmic wIthout US!" will be the crux of Westminster's argument and what I am afraid of, is that many Scots will think they are right.

    It worries me because it was bullshit and nonsense and "The Vow" that did it last time and I was so very disappointed

    Oh yes, "the vow", made by someone with absolutely no authority to bind the UK govt...

    Just discovered that Heather, Stronach, the woman who was killed last month at the junction of Portobello High St & Harry Lauder Rd, lived on my estate. It's such a shitty junction. This is a second recent fatality there (Stuart Elliot, in Spring 2019).

    I am really angry at the council's failure to act and all those who're trying to stop making roads safer. (See recent shite about last minute objections re "Sauchiebank Wood" on the planned Roseburn link in Gorgie/Dalry (a former colleague campaigned for it for years))

    If anyone can spare a few pounds, Heather's husband and friends have set up a fundraiser: https://www.justgiving.com/team/heather-­stronach

    I was in Evans a month ago looking for a helmet for the wee man and was told he couldn’t try anything on because Covid. Don’t know if that will extend to shoes, but they had a fair number on the wall. Probably best to call ahead and see if they will let you try them on

    Living in East Lothian and WFH for far too long, going into the city is really only reserved for weekends. I know where this is so perhaps on Saturday...
