SECC Glasgow . A good view while walking there


The SECC is an impressive multi-purpose venue in Glasgow for concerts, congresses and various meetings. The architecture also is impressive. Originally opening in 1985 it has been expanded over the years and is 95% owned by Glasgow City Council. The Clyde Auditorium was built in 1997 and looking rather like an Armadillo, is thus often called that! The site occupies 64 acres, mostly parking for 1600 cars and has its own train station nearby, although with a formidable walk still through one of the most interesting tunnels I have experienced.

Recipe for a Wedding Cayman Islands Style


Going to weddings is not my usual form of entertainment but when they take place publicly on the beach when on holiday then maybe its ok to have a peek. This is how you do it:

  1. Go to an amazing hotel like the Marriott Grand Cayman
  2. Rent a section of the beach
  3. Put some chairs on the beach and set up some small goalposts
  4. Make the bridegroom arrive 15 minutes early and look ever so uncomfortable standing there all alone
  5. Have a group of loud Texans in the swimming pool, yellering and hollerring and making many other noises not immediately recognisable as a language on this planet
  6. Then have your dinner outside by a pool with turtles swimming by
  7. Lastly pray for no rain during this little episode of festivities.
