Death of the Television......a bloody RANT!

Originally the BBC had only 2 television stations available and only 6 radio stations (some regional) and earned no revenue from advertisements or products, except the TV times. This was why we started paying th Liscense fee. Fair enough as we wanted to pay for the good content and classic programme quality.
Now, however, the BBC has roughly 32 Television and Radio channels available in the UK and a number of others in different countries around the world.
Last year the BBC were given £3.1 BILLION in liscence fees, £800 MILLION from selling productions to other channels and countries and a further £627 Million from selling DVD's, adio cd's and other related products.
Now if it wasnt bad enough that the whole of the UK have to, by law, have to pay the yearly fee please consider the following:-

17.5% of Scottish residents cannot receive the BBC's digital channels wether television or Radio (a higher percentage cannot recieve freeview.)We cannot instal Freeview because there are no relevant transmitters for digital, Cable companies wont consider installing the equipment it requires to receive this service due to the fact it would cost millions of pounds to lay the cables to these remote areas and to top it off we are unable to errect sattelite dishes due a rediculous "English" law which states that most of these affected areas have "CONSERVATION STATUS."
This means that we, us poor folks that cant receive digital, can only tune into 2 tv and 4 radio channels and we still pay the same fee as most of the population of the UK even though they get a hell of a lot more viewing choices!
Why oh Why should we when this is of no fault of our own I ask?
Another point, quite worrying this one, is that the area I live in will be the first region in the UK to switch over to digital and the analogue signal will end. This means in the Scottish Borders there will be a staggering 29.5%(13% will ahve to pay for a subscription service) of residents unable to watch their favourite programmes. More importantly I AM IN THIS CATEGORY!
To make things worse, and yes it can get worse, is that there are no deadlines for this to be resolved!
Bye Bye television, my old friend. You were my babysitter, my trusted confident and a truly special friend, but now it seems we will be parted for ever never to laugh, cry or gasp at the wonderful experiences we have shared. You will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

I must go and get really drunk now to try and forget the impending certainty that I will lose my best friend soon.

My Journeys Around Scotland.Part 1.1

It was quite a few years back, 20 to be precise, that my "Discover My Country" obsession began.
We Sarted in Crieff Perthshire, gateway to the Highlands, and embarked on a journey I will never forget.

My first "car", bought for me by my Farmer Parents, was an old Hydro Electric 1.1 deisel Ford Fiesta Mini Van. I am sure the mileage clock had gone round at least 3 times, oil constantly tried to escape from the rust ridden engine and the radiator went through water like a weggie on Irn Bru. Despite this I decided to cram two Ozzy friends, my best friend, myself and a lot of camping equipment and two case loads of Tennents Lager. I should point out that it was a very compact two seater with very little room in the back compartment and we had only 72 hours to discover the West Coast, the Grampian Mouintains, Braemar, Angus and then back to Crieff.

A rough plan was mapped out and was to take an overly optimistic route. First to Stirling for food supplies which takes about an hour, this part of the excursion went without a hitch.
Next stop was Kenmore on the banks of Loch Tay where we drove up the Moniche (pronounced Monzie (???) to Aberfelday back road and turned off at the first left single lane road which leads to our first proper destination. Beautiful scenery abundant, avoiding roaming sheep and sometimes having to stop and get out to scare them off the road, a high cliff ledge to our right and a very long drop to our left and very few passing places. After about an hour, travelling at about 26miles an hour due to the gradient of the hill, we encountered what seemed at the time the largest Bin truck I had ever seen. No room to pass, a drop to our demise at one side and a verry impenetrable cliff on the other, there was no way round and no way the truck driver was reversing. It was up to little, inexperienced me to reverse about three quarters of a mile to get back to the last passing place. I begin to reverse and to my horror the rear window was so small and dirty I couldnt look out there to navigate, I had no passenger wing mirror and the driver side mirror was pock marked with the kind of bubbling you only see in old victorian mirrors. We where DOOMED!
Slowly but surely, helped by my passenger hanging out his window, I started to reverse with the bin truck coming toward us in a very threatening manner. Just as I thought we were going to make it there was a scream from my three passengers, I panicked and instead of hitting the brakes I hit the accelaralator before hittng the brake. We were inches from plunging to certain death, and all of us were white with fear. I clambered out of the car, sorry van, and walked to the back and realised we were closer to the edge than we first thought. One wheel was over the edge and the other Flat. You guessed it, bloody rear wheel drive.
The four bin men, environmental technitions as they are known as nowadays, jumped from the cab of the truck and rushed to the back of my rust bucket vehicle and pissed themselves laughing. by this time my friends had joined me and we all burst into nervous fits of laughter that only occurrs after avoiding a near catostrophic accident.
The kind gentlemen helped us push my wee van to the middle of the road, changed my tyre and we all elected to push it down to the passing place to avoid another disaster.
We thanked them for their patience and help and handed over half a case of lager for their trouble, let them pass and slowly, much slower than before, eventually made it to Kenmore where we elected to go to the only pub, get very drunk and stay the night and leave very early the next morning to head on to our next stop. Onich.

19 hours gone 53 to go!

More true Stories.......

Scotrail are trying hard to keep customers informed about the reasons for the late running of trains. So when the train arrived at Edinburgh from Glasgow and the doors remained shut, the loud speaker announcement ran something like this - "We would like to apologise to passengers for the late opening of the doors. This is due to the guard's incompetence. This incompetence was caused by an accident at birth and everything possible is being done to rectify the situation."

When the ferry company in the Western Isles charged reduced rates for vehicles transporting sheep, some customers took advantage of this and took a sheep in the back seat of their car when going to the mainland (and had the same sheep on the way back). Eventually, the company had to change the rules.

In the middle of foggy night in the North-west Atlantic.....two lights are heading directly for one another... and on the radio an American voice is heard saying "We suggest you alter course by 10 degrees to port". Back comes the reply "We suggest YOU alter course by 10 degrees to port!" Then the American voice says "This is the battleship USS Missouri leading the American Atlantic battle fleet. You had better alter course by 10 degrees to port." Back comes the reply "This is the Outer Hebrides lighthouse, but it's your call, Jimmy".

Wee Jim and Auld Jock.....

Wee Jim and Auld Jock are "wanderin' doon the toon tae gan fir a pint."
Jock happens across a discarded mirror and picks it up and says to Jim.
"Hey wee jim ah recko'nise this face"
We Jim takes it off him and has a look and slaps Auld Jock around the head and says
"Nae wonder you auld numpty, its ME!"

Jim and Jock are a bit strapped for cash one day only having a single pound coin between them. "whit 'r' we gannae dae Jock, ahm chokin' fir a wee dram."
"Dinnay panick wee man. Huv ah ever let yeh doon!" jock replies. A couple of seconds later Jock darts into a Butchers shop and walks out with a great big grin and a huge sausage.
"wit the hell did yeh dae? Thats oor last poond man, an' yeh went an spet it oan a bloody Sausage?" Wee Jim was not happy.
"Ahve goat a plan just do as ah say." Jock leads wee jim into the nearest pub and asks the barman for two pints and two of the best Malts.
"Wit yeh daene Jock wuv nae money wul git thrown oot or they might even call the polis!"
Auld Jock whips out the sausage and sticks it through his open zipper and tells jim "here while that bar mans tallyin' up oan the till swally yer drinks fast and then git doon oan yer knees and stick yer gums roon this sausage." So they both gulp down the drinks, jim kneels down and puts his mouth around the sausage. The barman turns around to get the cash for the drinks and upon seeing whats going on de,ands that they leave immediately as "this is not that kind of establishment!"
Jimk and Jock repeat this in several bars and get the same outcome, free drinks. At the tenth pub Jim, rubbing his knees, turns to Jock and says "Its bin a great day, but we need tae stoap as ma knees are killin me and im pretty plastered anyway."
Jock replies "Yer kneese are sare. How dya think ah feel! I loast that sausage in the third bloody pub!"

James return to T in the Park this year and are one of the best received acts at Balado along with the Kooks, Amy Whinehouse, Babyshambles, Dizzee Rascal, Lostprophets, James Morrison and Snow Patrol to name a select few.

Now with an amazing 8 stages 132+ acts over this amazing weekend!!

A bit serious for this site I hear you mumble........but no!

You will stumble across all walks of life, in all manners of sobriety and everyone is in good form, always.

From the late night parties in the Camping Village, (the camping area is so large it boasts its own Postcode. although getting mail delivered can be tricky - Mr reveller, 4017 tent, row 2181, camping village, balado), to the very drunk, hyper, exzcited, stoned or wasted party goers in the arena (there is never anyone completely sober)it is in no doubt an experience in Real Scottish Culture and banter you are never likely to forget!!

All 140,000 tickets have sold out, but dont despair you can still enter to win tickets from various web sites (google search "win t in the park) but failing that I urge you to be ready to buy 2008 tickets no matter what country you are from as this festival always proves to be AMAZING!

Why Scotland is a Braw Place!

In the beginning, The Lord God Almighty, sitting on His throne on high, turned to His mate, the Archangel Gabriel and said "Gabby, today I'm going to create Scotland. I will make it a country of dark beautiful mountains, purple glens and rich green forests. I will give it clear swift flowing rivers and I will fill them with salmon. The land shall be lush and fertile, on which the people shall grow barley to brew into an amber nectar that will be much sought after the world over. Underneath the land I shall lay rich seams of coal.In the waters around the shores there will be an abundance of fish and beneath the sea bed there will be vast deposits of oil and gas"."Excuse me Sire", interrupted the Archangel Gabriel, "Don't you think you are being a bit too generous to these Scots"?"Not really", replied the Lord, "wait 'til you see the neighbours I'm giving them".

Noun: A non-projectile weapon. May be blunt or sharp, can include razors, lead pipes, bits of wood with nails hammered in, Stanley knives, etc... . Possibly the main feature that these will have in common is that a chib is something which has been adopted for use as a weapon, possibly with ingenious modifications, rather than something originally designed for that purpose. So a survivalist knife with a 10-inch blade wi the wee jaggy bits (What ur they fur anyway?) is probably not a chib. A crossbow or catapult is similarly not a chib. A Star Trek phaser is not a chib. Probably connected to the word shiv.Prounced TchibA chibbing is an attack from such an implement. Verb: To employ a chib - usually against another human being, but often against a ned. One who has been subjected to attack with a chib is said to have been chibbed.

Here we introduce the Haggis - a wee fluffy animal native to Scotland.
Haggis are notoriously hard to catch. There is only one sure way of capturing a Haggis and that's by luring it with the sound of a piper playing the bagpipes. Once the Haggis hears the pipes, it is completely hypnotised by the sound and follows the piper. At this point, the piper's accomplice hides nearby, ready to kill the animal with a large stone.
The animal's feet are shorter on one side than they are on the other, this means that when they are trapped they can only run around in circles and are an easy catch to the Haggis Hunter. This aside, their feet deformity makes it easier for them to climb round the Scottish mountains

Haggis hunting is now banned in Scotland although in some areas it is still illegally conducted under the cover of night. If you are staying in the Highlands during the summer and you hear the eerie sound of Bagpipes being played during the night - it's not a ghost - it's more likely to be an illegal haggis hunt.

There's also been some rumours that a local animal testing laboratory in Central Scotland are considering testing cosmetics and toiletry products on live Haggi.
Local animal rights activists are currently planning demonstrations in various cities to protest.

Thankfully the practice of carrying out live Haggis vivisections in primary schools in Scotland has now been completely outlawed to protect the species.

Oh little town of Newcastleton....

In the sleepy Borders village of Newcastleton, Police are currently investigating the theft of a statue of the baby Jesus from the village's nativity set. A police spokesman said that a 17 year old male would be the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal although enquiries into the whereabouts of the baby Jesus were still continuing. It is thought by locals that the statue could be hidden in a local inn or hotel although at the time of the theft, there were no rooms available. Margaret McPherson from the local church added that the thief was probably not a very wise man to carry out such a crime and that his reward would be great if the statue was returned.

Getting Extra from Halifax

Stephanie McLaughlin from Aberdeen was waiting for her monthly bank statement to arrive from the Halifax and sure enough, arrive it did, along with another 75,000 bank statements for other customers which were delivered to her in error! Stephanie complained to HBOS and was told they are currently investigating the error to find out why it happened. HBOS apologised in a statement: "We are treating this matter very seriously and are investigating in full and we will take steps to ensure there is no security issue for customers as a result of this matter". A member of staff from HBOS who wished to remain anonymous, said: "I can't really see what the problem is here, our slogan is we'll always give you Extra!"

Local delivery Bus!

Passengers on the Glasgow to Wishaw Coakley bus service were very surprised when their driver made a detour to deliver a chest of drawers and a cooker to a friend in Motherwell. The passengers on the bus had noticed the furniture tied-up in the space normally reserved for prams and buggies and thought it was a bit strange but were later astounded when the driver actually diverted the route to an address in Motherwell for his home delivery! The director of Coakley buses apologised for the diversion and confirmed that they had used an interpreter to speak to the Polish driver and further had now been given a warning and lost his bonus as a result of the incident. Aparently the driver was unaware that he was not allowed to deliver furniture on his route.
