It was suggested by Perth Business Gateway to rewrite the 2001 proposal to use the Millennium Dome as a global environmental management centre, this time relevant for Scotland in 2006. The outline executive summary, Scotland:The World's First Ecological Superpower, was produced. The next stage is to implement it, what do you think?

Rangers Fans Threaten Sir Tom Farmer's Kwik-Fit

I have to admit to a childish minority past time, it started when watching the TV in the kitchen. The sound of kettles boiling, fan ovens etc always occurring when the news was on, that vital name or phrase often missed, so I took to having the subtitles on at times.

This has now resulted in the game of what did that say? The subtitles don't often read as to what was said, the results seem to skew towards the funny. Weakest Link occasionally has some classics, but it is the news and live programmes which offer the best in entertainment.

Last night Reporting Scotland had a story about David Murray from Rangers wanting clarification about how independence will affect Scottish business. The library pictures described 50,000 Rangers fans turning up with saltaires. The subtitles referred to an incident where 50,000 Rangers fans turned up and sold tyres.

If you haven't tried the subtitle game yet have a go, if nothing else it can occasionally add interest to the news. Though I suppose if you were really deaf it could be confusing.
