MY FELLOW DALRY-IANS, neighbours, dogs and hobos, today I made £30 for an hours work!  You can too.  It's on behalf of the government, they're buying friends, nobody likes them (of course we love them all).  Here's the details, it's about 20 minutes walk to the place just off George Street, and I think they need maximum non-working folk, because they need a feedback on a project principally for them.

The UNESCO World Heritage site Palmyra has captivated international attention since May, when the Islamic State (ISIS) seized the territory around the ruins. But the ancient city earned its true infamy long ago—and for very different reasons.

Roman emperor Trajan famously carved his war victories into a 126-foot (38.4 meter) marble pillar in Rome—a structure that has since stood for over 1,900 years. Take Trajan's Column for a spin—literally—with this interactive that explores the spiraling scenes from bottom to top.
The victory of the Roman emperor Trajan over the Dacians in back-to-back wars is carved in numerous scenes that spiral up around a 126-foot marble pillar in Rome known as Trajan's Column. It's a tale that reads like an ancient comic strip.

Introduction
I am Outis.  Nobody.  Look to the West, the sun rises piercing night's chill embrace... while I slip away.

Moreover, I have an electric soul!  I put my finger in a socket and now I fluoresce.  Encircle me with your inductive phones and electric toothbrushes and I'll charge them.  Or kick them into a wall, I mean Jesus, what the hell man?

They wanted £24 to pitch a tent for a night. The Youth Hostel next door wanted £22 pounds for a dorm bed, with a big kitchen, a massive lounge with pool table and leather sofas galore, free showers and a dinning room and free wi-fi. May be worth it if you have several people to your tent, otherwise rock on.

During the great fire of Edinburgh, the wooden dutch steeple of the Tron caught fire, and the lead roof melted and ran down the street in streams. Middle class tourists came up to watch the poor town burn. Sir Walter Scott, the JK Rowling of his day, looked on and remarked 'Eh sirs, mony a weary, weary sermon have I heard beneath that steeple!', and then it came crashing down, his heart must have danced. Today it's an occasional bar, often with a band playing. There's a wonderful mural of the 1745 Jacobite rising capturing the city, the high spirits of the Highlander conquerors distracting from the baltic chill, otherwise known as 'atmosphere'. Wear a hat, or icicles will grow from your bangs. It's height and squashed width give it a strange ambiance. Here's a little factoid. It's only half a church. The other half was demolished for South Bridge.

George and Jim's, next door, is wonderful. The aging waist-coated barber is so successful at being friendly, he feels like a caring friend. I came out beatifuller and refreshed for the madding crowd.

What the hell is up with their door? You have to boot it like Vinny Jones. I ventured into the gloom within, it all felt a little like the China mans shop from Germlins. I sat down, and the bench back was vertical, begging for military posture. Christmas stars glittered from the ceiling. I was drawn towards the brightly lit square of buffet, my eyes swam at the splendour and my mouth swirled with saliva. It's a compact all you can eat in the centre of town, and possibly the cheapest in Edinburgh - £7.50. Sit near the alleged door and you'll lose fingers to frost bite, but otherwise, cheap, filling, attractive.

This place is fantastic! The pool is larger than Warrender Baths, and kept incredibly hot. Hotter, and bigger than Virgin gym's pool. Although it *may* be busier. The gym has been upgraded, so now there's a barbell, as well as dumbells, everything required for strength building. There's also the running machines, steppers?, and rowers, to build up a sweat. Oh and the showers, Oh Lord thankyou for the showers. There's a sauna and cakes are on the corner for Bridget Jones.
