  It really doesn't matter how or why you've not posted, it's good to read your post. Like you, I lived and worked in Glasgow for the best part of my life. It's not always been plain sailing but it's still a great place to be thumbup.gif

  Hello Folks, it's been quite some time since I had the pleasure of being on this site. And seriously, for the most part it was a pleasure. I worked for just over 40 years as a Glasgow cabbie and would like to share a story with you regarding this topic. A few years ago I picked up a hire from Buchanan St bus station, a young guy who for some reason had to come to Glasgow to finish his uni studies. He was from the south of England. By the time I met him he had been in Glasgow for almost a year. He told me on hearing that he had to go to Glasgow he was terrified. All his friends told him not to go, the place was full of madmen running around with knives and hatchets. They went as far as to tell him to give up on his degree. I asked him how he felt about the city given the fact that he had been here for quite some time. His answer was he loved it so much he was staying. Glasgow was now his home. Yes, the city has problems, and the reason for those problems are many and varied. A subject perhaps for another day, but for me, it's been a pleasure to live and work in a terrific city for most of my 71 years.

  The charge for parking a car in the city centre is now 4 an hour ! there are always lots of spaces
in the Blythswood Sq area. Incredibly the council recently started charging for parking on a Sunday,you have to feel for the many shops already struggling to survive.

  Personally, I no longer drive to Glasgow as it has changed so much. However, I totally agree with you about the parking as it is horrendous.

  The thing I dont get about Glasgow is the number of cars parked on the street. I can understand it in the older areas but with all the redevelopment and especially student accommodation going up it should be compulsory to build underground parking for all the residents in every new building.
If I had to drive around and around looking for a parking space when I went home 'miserable' would be a gentle word to describe how I would feel.

  Regarding our Glasgow being vibrant,my wife and I greet friends from England once a year for a wee catch up.we have been meeting them in a well known pub in st Enoch square,it is named after a new York area.we met as usual a few weeks ago on a Monday night ,spent few hrs talking about how much we loved our Glasgow .we had meals then relaxed for blether ,then we were told place was closing early ,7.30
We were dumbfoonerd !!we told them other friends were joining us .but still they had to close ,shocking..😐 not a great advert for glasgows vibrant night life .

  Johno doesnt say why he is studying at a glasgow uni , would no other city accept him?
The city is awash with students and the money men are building or trying to build student accommodation on every site that becomes available close to a university, we are heading
for 1 in 6 of the population being a student, none of whom pay council tax.
