Re: Experienced fire setter

In my yoof, admittedly many years ago now, I used to find the Dundee Courier & Advertiser fairly good in the combustion stakes, and along with a few finely chopped kindlers, I could get a decent blaze going without too much effort.

Re: No, really, what is it about Aberdonians? (minor rant)

Re: Calendar - volunteer(s) wanted.

I did try and send you a copy of a photo, but perhaps you didn't get it. Either that or it wasn't in the right format or something.

I'm not sure of the best way to sent you photos, so perhaps if you could send me an idiots guide . . .
