The Last Strawberry 2013


The few little things that we have grown in the garden this year have actually tasted great, although not exactly kilograms of them. We have a Strawberry plant that has lived outside through snow and whatever weather is thrown at us, and produces happily each year. Today I found a last strawberry hidden away on the plant.

The Times Monday October 7th has Wrong Football Scores!


There will be few who read the scores from the Scottish Cup on a monday morning and there will even fewer who realise that Times has printed the wrong scores and in fact seems to have made up the scores from two games.  Let me firstly add that I do not normally spend monday morning checking and cross-checking the Scottish football scores. I just noticed yesterday that East Stirling had beaten Threave Rovers 6-0 because of all the updates that were appearing on the vidiprinter on Sky football on my mobile.  However today it seems that Times might have left the game early as they report a score of 2-0. Similarly with Berwick Rangers, my Scottish team. They according to Times drew 2-2 with Peterhead but Sky sports assures me they won 2-1.  A double check reveals that i am right and Times are wrong. So that makes it 2-0 to me.

East Stirling used to play in a ground in a supermarket car park in Falkirk and a lovely little ground it was too. I understand that it has been bulldozed sadly. Here are a couple of photos to remind us of the 6-0 winners yesterday.  Lots more images of football grounds on my website http://www.footballgroundz.co.uk if you would like to visit.
