What time does the ticket office open at Tynecastle?

 

Where is good for lunch in Edinburgh?

 

Where is good for Parking in Paisley?

 

Why haven't we signed Zeefuik?

Not sure about Tesco exactly but I started in WmLows in 1992/1993 and it was not long after that Tesco bought them over and Lows was rebranded as Tesco.

I have this memory of a cartoon film from the 80s, about mice moving to America. It featured a song called There Are No Cats In America, to the tune of America from West Side Story. Googling it turned up a cartoon that exactly fits the bill, but the tune used in the song is completely different.

 

Google Isn’t giving me the answers!

Anyone able to find the public service broadcast from the 70s or 80s, for hyperthermia(Possibly) Yet!. The  one with the guy struggling in the snow.

I seem to remember a Harrier jump jet .

I'm sure I remember Celtic's kit deal ending, them signing up with Gola, releasing kits, then withdrawing them and going with someone else after a couple of weeks as they were falling apart in the wash.

I can't find a link anywhere but I swear it happened, probably late 90s. Anyone else remember it?

A fairly crucial consideration for the globetrotting Celtic legions.

The fact that it took a couple of weeks for Celtic fans to discover they were falling apart in the wash tells you everything you need to know about them :lol:

I thought that was the Celtic fan's definition of a scaff.... someone who wears last season's strip.

Ahh, the infamous "Dundee Shower" :lol: 

 

That brand seems a bit high end for Celtic fans.  Can probably get 3 of these for a pound in Home Bargains:

Could be a rescue helicopter for a fighter pilot. :D You're probably right.

 

Can't find it. But some of the others are a bit dark. :(

In primary school, we used to get these videos . Possibly bbc schools or something? Anyway we used to watch one that terrified me as it had (I think) a giant raven in it, this would’ve been around the mid to early 90s. Anyway know the name of it or remember it? ?

Have you spoken to him?

Did he give you any encouragement?

Is he single?

 

If the answer to these questions is yes then go for it.

 

Good luck.

How do you become a drag racer? Does some just watch you drive and think "Wow, that guy really impressed me driving forward for 50 metres then stopping like that!"? What sets one person driving forward in a straight line from the other?

It's an American test of manhood. Probably.
