    Hello? Anyone still here? No gembo-isms? Some sort of secret pact to see how long we can hold out before someone posts? Bicycle apocalypse? Unusual yellow orb? All drivers have had a revelation and are now insanely well behaved?

    Does seem unusually quiet today. I'm a bit concerned that a growing censoriousness seems to be driving some long standing posters away.

    As I have opined many times the Scottish voter does so en bloc. So Churchill could be an MP for Dundee as Scotland voted for the conservative and unionists. Apart from the non-prods where there was an element of diversity. Then we switched to my beloved Labour Party. Did you know the old Castlbrae High School was opened in 1976 by James Callaghan? Prime Minister. Hopefully wee Nicky will be telt this and open the new, rather sombre anti climb building in Feb 2022? Now Scotland votes SNP regardlesss.

    This wee forum is a microcosm of Scottish society.

    Our frailties are revealed during Flouncing. A flouncing is when a member leaves. Wilmington’s Cow would do so when our hatred of cars got too much for him. He loves a wee mini, so do I as it would fit through The Crusher and be allowed into Gembo’s Edinburgh. See also Baby Austin’s and Cinquecentos.

    We are predominantly male, middle class, environment conscious and male. Though of course we have some variety. We can become obsessed with single issues. We go in for over detailed analysis. We issue sublime corrections to each other that are actually anticipated. I admit to deliberately posting inaccurate information just to be corrected. For all our faults we survived three helmet wars though we are not so good at Queer Theory. Who is? Anyway a dozen years of this coming up

    Happy to oblige - Churchill was, of course, a Liberal when elected in Dundee.

    iPad not the issue.

    Photos have to be hosted somewhere - eg Flickr.

    Images should be about 500 pixels wide.

    Thanks for info
    So not possible to insert image from one’s own photo library directly?

    Partly ‘primitive software’, party to keep website hosting requirements low.

    If you’re not wanting to post many photos, Flickr worth considering -

    Beginning January 8, 2019, Free accounts will be limited to 1,000 photos and videos. If you need unlimited storage, you’ll need to upgrade to Flickr Pro.
