Edinburgh is as expected: cold and rainy. Beautiful city, however. Stepped into a Wetherspoons to get out of the dampness and I'm enjoying $2.97 pints of Belhaven. That's almost as cheap as Poland.

That's a fallacy put about by tight-fisted Yorkshiremen, as we all know the British saying ""a Yorkshireman is a Scotsman with all the generosity squeezed out of him". 😁

I've just joined the BCG facebook group and noticed Nina Conti is a member and she liked a BCG post about her dad. That is so cool.

Are you sure it wasn't her monkey?

:D I saw a picture of her monkey with a very funny quote by Nina but having trouble finding it now. Something along the lines of a career of having a fist up it. Supremely talented and funny.
