Hi Mike, Glad to see you back posting again. I've been in and out for a while but hope to get back on track myself.

The "in our beds" sign is interesting. What's the story behind it?

Hello JJ and Peggy. In our beds is a reference to football. Edinburgh has two senior teams - Hearts & Hibs. Hearts thrashed Hibs 5-1 in last year's Scottish Cup Final. Hibs play in the part of Edinburgh called Leith (still with me?!) So the reference is to Hearts fans singing 'The Hearts are having a party - the Hibs are in their beds!'

Hope you are both well.

How funny is the sign. It never ceases to amaze me how serious this game is there. We love our sport here but I don't think to the same level or I don't think anyway. Rivalry is good as long as it doesn't go overboard. Ant and Dec don't look any older since I saw them 6 years ago.
