Weather break makes life easier for stallholders

A successful day for February was reported by traders.

The weather makes all the difference to trade and the persistent cold high winds we’ve had recently have made the stallholders task almost impossible

Traders get together to make a presence on facebook!

South side stallholder Mike Hebb sells potted and cut flowers rather than vegetables now as Colin has moved

The stallholder’s son, writer and angler Colin Hebb is now working at Total Fitness

SPE 2015 Oil and Gas Industry Conference in Aberdeen

Worthy of recommendation: –

Finavon Hotel, Finavon, Forfar, Angus

Between Dundee and Aberdeen there is a beautiful place .. awa the noo

History, stuffed antlers, scenery, walks, fishing, cuisine and home of an ancient battle:

whichever / whatever your interests: you are made cordially welcome, fellow Sassanak, at the Finavon Hotel!

Whilst the editor was by the Dee purloining a big surplus cardboard box one-off from a kindly manufacturer (Dundee packaging company) whilst struggling to prepare a presentation on the way to Aberdeen, HRH was on her Anniversary by the Don opening a vintage steam railway on the same day!

(Just don’t mention the wars or devolution too much – or risk getting into a long and riveting conversation!)

Aberdeen Angus beef-rearing country – hence the name – their meat pies are really terrific – never got as far as steaks on my budget!

This is an Inn, ‘home-cooking’ locally-produced food rather than a chain Hotel serving up standard meals and the editor can confirm he was also brought up in and around such ..

Therefore beyond rank or rating and just off the beaten track – totally with character – excellent!

SPE Offshore Europe 2015

and on to the Conference ..
