The Case for Scottish Indepence
Now I must admit that I am somewhat in favour of Scottish Independence! I am not one of the 45, I would never badger another into voting for Scottish Independence, and I am not sure it would be the best thing to do, either economically or socially, but I am...

The England World Cup Top 2015 [Cricket]
I have been following the ICC World Cup from the start, but although I understand why England have been even poorer than Scotland from the start, I was yet to understand why the England team were wearing synchronised sweat stains on their shirts. Do we look...

Falkirk FC Team Pic Date Unknown
I have very little to go on with this picture I can tell you that the chap three in from the left IS a young Jock Drummond, and that Falkirk FC are displaying Two Cups. This can only mean that this photo was taken during the era of Jock Drummond - [1886/87-...
