FRESHERS' Week for students just now and we fear they might not be as hedonistic as in the past.
THE theatrical Sir Donald Sinden who died on Thursday, had a rich voice which was difficult to describe.
A CHAP in Glasgow yesterday was asked by a visiting journalist if Scots were concerned about businesses pulling out if there was a Yes vote.

I have been in the function suite of Glasgow's Radisson Hotel when the behaviour has been brash, raucous and alcohol-fuelled - and loved every minute.
ATTENDING some reception, I was joined by a businessman who tried to impress the young woman opposite by mentioning all the famous people he had met.
Beautiful eyes that dominate her face as she gazes around her.
IT was like the day after a massive birthday party.
THE entrance is up a short Glasgow wynd where my sudden appearance disturbs a couple eating pies.
