The background

I haven't watched TV at home for nearly 20 years. I haven't owned a TV for nearly 15 years. There was a time when we used to watch videos using a television, but we have long since moved to using DVDs and large computer monitors.

Cui bono

As the independence debate increases, both by the number of participants and in volume, how can we judge the veracity of the contributions? It would be wise to consider Cicero's maxim when hearing some of the arguments put forward by the detractors of self-determination.

Goodbye Scotsman

I don't remember when I first started reading The Scotsman, it was always just there. Every day, around midday, the newspaper would arrive. The paper was folded twice, lengthways, and around the middle would be a slip of paper with our address on it and a stamp. It was delivered by the postie[1]. As we lived many miles from the nearest shop it was easier, cheaper and more convenient to have a newspaper account at the nearest shop who would then bundle and post it.
