Scottish Bike Show

It wasn't quite Cycle Mode in Osaka and Cervelo didn't turn up with some new prototypes but the inaugural Scottish bike show had a few highlights. Manchester and Edinburgh based Dynamoworks were punting screenprints in their good clobber, the lads at Trakke were punting their local, good looking bags and rennersport were launching their new Scottish / Belgian collection. And the sun even shone (outside).

The Worst Hotel in the World

I like to think I usually write about positive subjects here - or at least try to spin negative things into positives. At the weekend we stayed a night at the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Someone came to breakfast with bites on their arm. My parents slept directly above the bar celebrating a rugby success. The breakfast was 'alright' which is about the only good I can say. The mock medieval banquet hall with very little natural light for breakfast was 5 star compared to the junkie squat room. I made the mistake of not reading these reviews. I did take some photo's though. And showed the staff. still scrubbing.

Tohoku and beyond

Organised by fellow Glaswegian Blair Thomson, there will be an exhibition this Wednesday in support of survivors of the Tsunami in March. The exhibition will take place at the Royal Glasgow Institute Kelly Gallery on Douglas Street near to the Glasgow School of Art and will be opened by the Japanese Consul General Mr Masataka Tarahara. The five artists showing work have close ties to Japan and works have been inspired by the country.
