So much more than politics!

When I put my hand up to edit this weeks roundup I was keen that it introduced me to a wider blogging world in Scotland and I do think it has. I like to think there is some thing here for everyone, thanks to the talent that is out there in the blogosphere. Its impossible […]

Hot music, cooling weather, warming climate

Hello, and welcome to this week’s roundup. It’s the last one of the year. As normal, we are taking the week between Christmas and new year off. However, stay tuned for a special announcement some time next week! In the meantime, though, let’s get on with this week’s roundup. The year in music We are […]

Good morning, and welcome to this week’s roundup. Something I’ve noticed quite a lot recently is that a lot of big stories (particularly to do with the SNP) happen on a Sunday — after the roundup has been posted!
