  2. Scotland won convincingly. Who has even begun to suggest otherwise? We were lucky to be even close at the end. Saturday was different.

  9. Sign up for the weeks free trial, then make sure you cancel. Believe me, it's worth a watch
  10. A few listens now. I'm blown away by the album. It's a masterpiece. The writing and the thread throughout of age, loss, acceptance, recovery, regret, pride and memory is just magnificent. Touching without being morose, sadness tinged with the joy of the good memories. The feeling of a life achieved whilst something also slips away.
