    How essential to life is a smart phone in the 21st century?

    For me my phone is essential. I have my work email, union email, Skype for Business and Teams all on it. Also because I'm a Union Steward its the most effective way for members to get in contact with me if they need help and advice. Also all my banking apps are on it, along with public...

    Brand name painkillers/drugs etc vs own brand cheaper versions.

    Aren't branded and non branded painkillers exactly the same if they have the same PL Code? Makes no sense buying a branded product like Nurofen if Ibuprofen is the exact same product.

    Promise to Pay - Is it valid on Merseyrail

    Also on Merseyrail's website they state that National Railcards can be used for purchases on singles and returns any time after 10am and the £12 fare applies before it. However there is no time restrictions on the Disabled Railcard. Surely they wouldn't be charging the £12 fare on Disabled...

    First Greater Glasgow

    The 2 has had really strange allocations on it all day. An 18 and an X11 branded E400MMC were on it this afternoon.

    First Greater Glasgow

    4A and X4 suspended. Does that mean Knightswood is left without services into Glagow City Centre? Surprised they haven't put the 4 back to what is what even if on a temporary basis.

    Worst " Bus war"?

    The Stagecoach Perth and Strathtay Scottish war was quite bad in the late 80s - early 90s. I believe that Neil Renilson jumped ship in 1989 leaving Strathtay and joining Stagecoach. Quite ironic that Stagecoach subsequently bought the Traction Group which included Strathtay in 2005.

    Fastest double decker?

    When Stagecoach Perth still had the East Lancs MAN Kinetics, 22507 could get up to 68mph without breaking a sweat. The E400MMC's definitely lose speed going up hills. The branded 18's lose a lot of speed going up the Glasgow Road heading towards East Kilbride.

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Support/advice

    Technically not as an employee as I've been furloughed. I'll still be shielding as a normal punter now.

    Well I'm no longer shielding for 12 weeks as I've just been furloughed. Things can only get better as they say.

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Support/advice

    Thankfully our IT team have been promoting working from home for the last 2 years or so, so our IT services are more than able to handle the added pressure. However I've just got my letter through from the Scottish Government confirming that I now have to shield for at least 12 weeks.

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Support/advice

    Just over a week ago I was admitted into Glasgow Royal Infirmary showing signs of it. Fortunately I tested negative and it was just my asthma falling over on its backside again. Bad news for me is that as I was already on steroids for it, and a whole host of other medication, it means i know...

    So not a lot of change to frequency for a lot of services then? The buses are empty enough as it is.
