MUG -- interesting concept.
Needs a bit of work but I hope it gets more exposure.
Hopefully the maintenance angle is fully sorted and engaged.
Real weakness of any form of public sector infrastructure provision is the lack of upkeep.

CB @ 10.46

The lanes will only come into play when the main streets are full up or there is a significant rent differential. Not sure this is the case in many areas of Glasgow away from Byres Road.

Need to sort out the weak areas on Sauchiehall Street before the Lanes take off.
However fair play to the pioneers in that area.

Great idea.
Interesting if they can provide the scale to pull it of.

However there is a but.
And it is a big but.

What is the story with the canoe?
Who found it, where was it found ?!?
Although who lost it might be the better question.

If Burt Reynolds is spotted out looking for it then I suggest you head for the hills.
Duelling banjos might be OK but Squeal piggy piggy squeal is taking things a bit too far.

TDB

Travel writing nonsense / herd instinct / ego tripping / fan dancing

vs

Tall building nonsense / different is better / starchitect fan boy adoration / trendy wendy first mover ego tripping.

From my point of view they are very similar.

Grumpy old man time.

Two things are really bugging me at the moment --

1. Litter -- both the numpties that throw it and the half hearted efforts employed to pick it up.

2. Poor quality farmland -- not sure how Brussels disburses its subsidies -- SFP scheme -- but the state of the fences, the waterlogged ground and all the pasture with rushes growing on it would sheets some people are taking the money and running.
