Like I've said many times, love all things Scottish. My grandparents never lost their accents and family from Scotland visited often. I remember trying to talk to my grandma but she wasn't paying attention to me. Was looking at my young daughters. She said she couldn't take her eyes off their wee cheeky faces. We liked to get my grandma to say words that when she said them came out very Scottish. Robertson and Kerchavo were our favorites. Our names all had their Scottish sound to them and while they've both been gone for years I can still hear their accents.

Tracy, I also love a Scottish accent. Do you watch OUTLANDER, and did you ever watch the 90's series, HIGHLANDER? Both a must for a lover of all things Scottish! For the Outlander fans here, I have read that it is returning with a new season in September!

I didn't think Michelle said that Oliver should die and rot in hell. I thought she was referring to Leanne. Maybe I heard wrong? If she did, no that was not very nice of her. It's not the baby's fault that he was conceived. I don't blame her for saying that about Leanne though.

I loved Last Tango in Halifax, and only caught Monarch of the Glen occasionally. I'd forget to series record both of them, so I think I missed quite a few episodes.

Tracy: I'm a sucker for a Scottish accent! I love it! My Grandfather never lost his, even after 50 years in Canada, but my grandmother did, lost it completely by the time I was a teenager. I saw what you meant about Adam's jeans and the turned up cuffs at the bottom. I don't like the look, but maybe it's a new trend over there.

My husband was pointing out something in the Sun about Eva, Cath Tyldesley, dying her hair dark. "Who's That Girl?" I like it dark, but probably not an Eva thing? What do you all think?

Pat, I think it is ginger ale soda we put in our beer to make it a Shandy. I think that is the first mixture of alcohol my dad offered my brother, back in the day. I got to try a mint liqueur, in a fancy little glass. Lots of families go to the pub in the UK. We used to take our kids into our local pub all the time. They knew the staff, and the staff knew them. We would get them something to eat and drink, and bring things to occupy them. ;)
Monarch of the Glen - I feel like it has been 15 years since I watched it!
I love Shetland (Scottish police detective drama). I have a crush on Inspector Jimmy Perez. The way he says 'okay'. I just melt. Haha. I'm a biased sucker for a Scottish accent. Cannie help maself!

As for cheating in a marriage - well, it's all on an individual case by case, if you ask me! My friend had a volatile relationship with a bully of a husband, and she once told me someone was showing her an interest and she was confused. Dont judge me -- but I didn't judge her ---- and I made it clear to her that I wouldn't blame her for a second if she fell into someone else's arms. In fact, at that time I wished she would! I welcomed someone to show her what it's like to respected and loved. An affair didn't happen, but eventually, the husband hit her, and that was the end of that marriage. But that other man's signals helped her realize there are more fish in the sea, and she was worthy of something better :)

Haili, I agree, Ken could end up in hospital again.

Regarding the construction worker: This storyline is actually making me really angry. Street harrassment is a serious problem and makes a lot of women feel unsafe and victimized. It's frightening how a seemingly trivial comment on a woman's looks can turn into rage-filled invective or even physical violence if the man doesn't get the response he is looking for. The writers here have managed to trivialize both the comments themselves (they are usually a lot more explicit than what this guy said to Rosie, no one could get truly upset by his comments) and Sally's over-the-top response (seriously, what was that street protest supposed to achieve? There are better ways to raise the issue with the company), AND the ultimate outcome (the guy should have been disciplined, not fired, obviously, and the foreman should have been written up as well). They have just made the whole issue look silly and given fodder to the idiots who think women should just smile and accept this kind of nasty attention.

Ken's going to have a stroke or a heart attack if he doesn't calm down. I had some sympathy for Adam last night being on the receiving end of Ken's temper. He was going to do the right thing but his need for money got the best of him and I wonder why that drug dealer followed him home. Adam and Amy's scenes were good. I'm liking the Barlow boys lately.

Sinead is introducing Daniel to real life.

If Daniel stays in university, he will have a useless degree and student debt.

Daniel should go in business with Adam and make money.

Chesney and Daniel should have a duel like civilized people.

Jim and Pat: I'm so sorry to read that people made fun of you - well it sounds like Karma got some of them, and will get them eventually. I can't imagine anyone making fun of someone with a disability - it's beyond the pale, but we all know people can be cruel, and those people sometimes don't end up doing so well themselves. I know because I've seen it firsthand in my husband's family (his Dad was a real jerk).

I absolutely laughed out loud when Cathy barfed on Brian's shoes! It just struck me so funny because we could see she was already close to it before he showed up!LOL

I thought it was sweet when Amy kissed her fingers and touched Dierdre's gravestone. Great little actress that Elle Mulvaney.

Alice,I also agree with your comments about the construction worker being fired and thought it's political correctness run amouk!I could see the worker getting a warning but that's it.
Imagine what would've happen if it was Gary who was fired?It would be a battle royal between Anna and Sally!

Gail,Granted Steve and Michelle were on a 'break'but he did sincerely believe their marriage was over all the same when she left to work on the cruise hence his drunken one night stand with Leanne.
I don't think Michelle learned her lesson after Will either as she was flattered by Robert's declaration of love for her while married to Steve and pregnant with his child and even tried to kiss him while grieving the loss of her son?!I thought that was a very weird scene
The writers had a perfect opportunity to make Michelle more sympathetic when she suffered her miscarriage but no, she was as nasty to Steve[throwing him out of the pub] who was also grieving as she is now.
Perhaps if they did portray Michelle in s sympathetic light after her miscarriage and not have told Leanne her son should've died instead,then maybe,I may have some sympathy for Michelle but now she's acting like a banshee!

Pat...people can be cruel...and i used to live in a neighborhood that went downhill my family was made fun of all the time and not just by children-their parents were even worse...my late mum who suffered a series of strokes came home after speech therapy and fell while exiting her car...i was the only one home at the time and had a difficult time getting her off the ground because of my bad back and mum was 50 ponds overweight...well, several neighbors were out across the street and thought it funny and two of them worked in the medical field and did nothing but watched and joked about our situation!!!...we ignored the neighbors, got inside and went about our business getting dinner ready...that neighborhood got so bad we no longer could sit outside and several of our pets were poisoned...mum passed away in 1997 and me and the rest of our family finally moved away from there!!! Many of those awful neighbors passed away now but that old neighborhood is still bad.

Gail. I didn't think they were legally separated, "were on a break", and I always liked Michelle, just never liked the way she treated Steve. I think it's terrible to just jump in bed with someone else when your married and almost as bad as coming close. I have a friend who was not happy in her marriage so started seeing someone on the side. Said they didn't sleep together. Sure? She wasn't getting enough attention from her husband. Please! She's my good friend but I totally disagree with her actions. I was happy when Michelle came back to the street and got together with Steve. I just never liked how she treated him. My opinion is cool this storyline just a little. Don't like how Leanne is treating Nick. Making a baby makes you a father but not a dad

Pat, Michelle and Steve weren't legally separated when he slept with Leanne. They were taking a break after all the Will stuff came out. I don't think that means he should jump into bed with the first available female and make a baby with her. He was still married. Bottom line, Michelle didn't have sex with anyone outside her marriage. Steve did. I've come to the conclusion that who you think is at fault here in this scenario depends on which one of them you like. Most posters don't like Michelle and so she's the evil one even though she didn't have sex outside her marriage. Thinking about it is NOT the same as doing it! I agree that she isn't doing herself any favours with her anger and tantrums. If she took the high ground and was calm and reasonable about everything it would be much more in her favour but she's gone through a lot and I think the mental exhaustion of it has driven her to this behaviour. I am sorry to see it because I have always liked Michelle. I blame the writers! They pull her strings. wink

KLS, it's the reason no one ever does what they SHOULD do on Corrie, and on most soaps and dramas. So they can be found and drive the plot in the direction they want it to go! wink

I know everyone is getting sick of the Michelle/Steve story but had have to add my two cents. I do have to agree with most that was posted by Tracy, Haili and Marie. I could be wrong because I wasn't able to watch for awhile. Didn't Michelle have it in her mind to be with Will when Steve was away? Weren't Michelle and Steve separated when he was with Leanne? They were all wrong but I'm still feeling more for Steve especially the way Michelle's been acting.

I also don't think it was right for Sally to make the big scene and get the worker fired. When he first said something Rosie loved it even after Sophie told her to stop. I was raised by a very strong mother, I have sisters and daughters but Rosie seemed to encourage him and it was his way of flirting.

Jim. I've been teased all my life about my limp from a birth defect. Would see people copy my limp when I walked past and they would laugh. Again because of my strong mom I never let it bother me and felt they were fools for thinking they were funny. I have a cane but just can't get the hang of it. Tried for many years. Miss the days when I could push a stroller.

Tracy. Love watching Last Tango in Halifax but just can't break my addiction to Monarch of the Glen. I have a crush on Duncan.
We have a beer here that is mixed with lemonade called a Lemon Shandy. I was readying a bio from 1900s about a British woman. When she was in her teens she would go to the pub with her parents. She said it wasn't looked down as much if you had your child with you. She started with lemonade then when old enough they added beer to it and called it a Shandy. I do like a beer once in awhile especially the Summer Shandy but more of a wine drinker. Do love cider. There is a cider mill near my brother's that makes the best hard cider. Very light and refreshing.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADRIAN, if you are still lurking in on here :) I think you were the Cape Breton fellow, Monique's favourite place.

I know in Glasgow there was a drink called Snakebite. Half lager, half cider. Most places wouldn't serve it, as I'm guessing people got too drunk too quick. I'm not a beer drinker, so I never tried it. Although I do like a nice crisp cider. Very refreshing actually; Sommersby being my fave brand, with various flavoured options too.

In recent years, Canada has introduced The Rocket, which is half beer and half a Smirnoff Ice vodka cooler. And as per the above , I hate the beer but like the cooler ;)

Happy Friday everyone!

Depth Charge?? Used to be called Boiler Makers and the results were the same - booze foamed up all over the table and most people puke after drinking them but not with quite the amusement I got from Cathy barfing over Brian

Was nice to have a show without Michelle screaming and throwing things - good grief, woman!!! Give it a rest, divorce Steve and get outta town. I am pretty certain she has no entitlement to half the pub and Streetcars as Steve already had them before they got married and she is entitled to half of what was acquired after they were married and no more. I do see her going off the deep end even worse than she has done so far.

Dear Lord, Sinaed...don't you know enough to bin the pee test after you took it?? What is with these women on soaps that they leave their used pee tests on cupboards, coffee tables, etc, and if they do bin them, it is on top.
Thanks for Sally not shouting on that damned megaphone - was getting old after the first bit but to carry on so her racket was intruding on the rest of the show.....geesh

Alice, loved your comment about the depth charge! I thought that particular scene was pretty funny. I have never been a fan of Cathy but I sure liked her at that moment. Lol. Had to watch it a few times on time shift just to see that scene over again. lol

I object to such behaviour being called "attention" which sounds pretty and harmless; to me it's harassment that is fostered by a sense of entitlement to an person who is seen as an object that someone feels he has a right to use. It's not complimentary; it's bullying.

That doesn't mean that Sally's attempt to make up for being a crappy mother who lives vicariously through her daughter and thus effs up her daughter's life wasn't misguided. If Sally had an iota of understanding about the issue, I'd be on her side, but I feel that she so poorly understands anything at all political that her casting as a political councillor is on a level with the Weatherfield police's work.

Alice, you shouldn't take flack for any opinions on a tv show. For the record, I couldn't agree more. The young ladies handled the situation just fine, without dear Mummy's involvement. Over exaggerated storyline for the effect of humour. Of course we knew Rosie would blow it, and Sally would be mortified - ha ha. She plays such a good part - love our Sal ;).
Further, I wouldn't mind a cat call now and again. wink Once again, my famous last words - it's all about perception! Cat call received; secretly flattered; ignore the men; walk on. Simple. Imho anyways.

So Adam has a heart after all. I felt quite sad watching Amy at Deirdre's grave.
I wasn't impressed that Adam drove away, while that woman's face was squished by the drug mule. But then again, given the dodgy circumstances, best get the heck out of there!
Nevermind Adams coat - those jeans are a no-no, imo. I think the Capri turn-up look should be reserved for ladies only. lol

Ken obviously has a lot more money than us loyal viewers have been led to believe. Sigh.... Another fail on a characters background.

OFF TOPIC
I have been binge watching The Last Tango In Halifax on Netflix, and I can't find all episodes from Season 4 online. Driving me nuts. I think I might require Therapy, lol!!!!
I watched all of Happy Valley too. My husband can't rip this iPad away from me.
"Netflix anonymous" - shall I start the support group?.....

Alice...i agree about the construction worker...ignore him-no physical harm.. even had they said anything sexist-sticks and stones may break my bones but names may never hurt me......just think of it as the whistle in the wind...i get some women might not like the attention but still it is easy to ignore...i walk with a cane..one day someone shouted three legs at me...i acted like i did not hear it and did not let it bother me...

I'll probably take flack for this, but I felt sorry for the construction worker who got fired because of the women's protest. If they had ignored the man's cat calls in the first place, he probably would have stopped. Instead they goaded him into doing it more, then got him fired for it. Not fair, IMO, and a case of the punishment far outweighing the original offence.

I've never had a depth charge. Looks like fun, especially if you get to barf on Brian. big grin

Adam should definitely burn that awful grey coat.
