Talk of the Town: Frosty reception for Nina’s doodles

Have your say

SHE’S definitely leaving her mark on the music scene – and now she could be targeting you.

Singing sensation and former Balerno High School pupil Nina Nesbitt has been spreading the word by scrawling her initials on icy windows and posting the evidence on Twitter.

So, if you wake one cold winter morning to find a scene like this, you know where to find the culprit.

Nina – you’re now en route to chucking tellies out of windows . . .

Perhaps weed read too much into this one . .

WITH talk of “Capital coalition pledges” and the rise of the “co-operative council”, it’s fair to say there’s been some fairly woolly thinking going on at the City Chambers lately.

But an event signposted “Cannabis Masterclass” still caused a minor stir last week – with the public left wondering quite what was going on inside.

“What are our councillors up to?” queried one Twitter user after spotting a poster for the event.

Quite aside from any smoking of the herb, of course, it was in fact a presentation by the respected drugs action group Crew 2000.

Play to a Mexican beat

CLAD in studded charro outfits complete with wide-brimmed sombreros, they are sure to make an impression on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle.

The Aguiluchos Marching Band, who hail from Puebla in Mexico, are making their first visit to the Capital next summer to take part in the Tattoo.

With 100 members, they will use an exuberant mix of violins, guitars, vihuelas and trumpets to embrace “the very essence of sunshine and the traditions of Mexico”.

Now they’ve said that, it’ll probably rain.

Initially, there was a first

H-BDAY 2 SMS. Or in English, if you’d prefer, TOTT would like to wish the text message a happy 20th birthday.

And to celebrate, here’s a fun fact.

The first SMS message was sent over the Vodafone GSM network in the UK on December 3, 1992.

Neil Papworth used a personal computer to send a message to Richard Jarvis of Vodafone, who was using an Orbitel 901 handset, reading “Merry Christmas”.

Bit early, perhaps, but maybe Neil was worried he’d missed the last Christmas post.
