In case anyone outside of Glasgow was wondering what the weather here is like currently.

Political implications of the Queen’s Sports Day aka the Commonwealth Games aside, I mean forgetting the lands conquered and people enslaved in the colonies, the athletes competing here in my city, and their fans, should be heartily welcomed and congratulated for everything that they did to be here. Of course, even the English athletes know that they will get some booing but as one admitted, “if you can’t be the hero, you might as well be the pantomime villain”. It’s glorious weather and for all its faults, we’ve a city to be proud of. Let’s try and be positive and put on a damn good show, yeah? Excellent. Now, I’m away to put some Irn-Bru in a glass of ice cream because it’s utterly roasting here.

I love it when new signs fall off to reveal long-lost ones. Charlie Rocks on Byres Road… which was once Cafe Antipasti… was once Taylors Chemist.

Good luck to Belgium in the World Cup. Even though they beat us at Hampden last year, their fans were arguably the loudest travelling support I have ever witnessed. Then they held up this banner which made me like them more.

Why is Glasgow the UK’s sickest city?

Congratulations, Glasgow! We made the news again today!

Really though, we do have a lot to do in order to sort ourselves out. But let me say this, Tory cuts to health services and education is doing NO FAVOURS AT ALL.

"A garage owner has apologised for staging a scene that looked like a murder in an Edinburgh street, which was caught on Google Street View."
It’s not often that I’ll praise our neighbours from the east coast, but this kind of dark humour is to be commended! Bravo, Edinburgh!

Perspective: 'Look at Norway and stop worrying! ' | Yes Scotland

A chance to become more like Norway or become like the Euro-sceptic UKIP-loving south-east of the UK? Don’t let fear of the future hold you back from voting yes in September!
