Re: NEW COUCH!-check it out!

Flea bites are not the sort of thing you can mistake. They cause a red swelling, last for a minimum of 3 days and itch significantly more than a midge or mosquito bite. The Forest probably ought to have a policy of asking dog owners which product they use to control fleas and when it was last admini...

Excellent. Mystery solved. Thanks.

Re: NEW COUCH!-check it out!

It's a safety issue. A dog lying quietly on the floor will eventually get trodden on. An awkwardly broken leg can mean a dog gets killed by injection - you can't have a dog in a wheelchair for the rest of its life. People wanting seats can ask dog owners to move their dogs aside. If that's a problem...

Re: Forest frequently asked and unasked questions - FFAUQ

Please can someone explain on this FFAUQ how to use facebook to get Forest-related messages and see Forest events? I know this is possible, but I cannot manage it myself. I see the Forest page on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Forest-Cafe-Edinburgh/111082362288516#!/pages/Forest-Cafe-Edinbu...

Re: buy the forest/save the forest

Indeed. Were the creditors also asleep? Perhaps they just didn't know that they were lending to a hopelessly indebted organisation. Another question: assuming that the loan used to purchase 3 Bristo Place was secured on the property (ie a mortgage), are the proceeds of the sale of the property ring-...

Forest Quiz, Sunday 14th November, 7pm - help wanted

Can anyone lend a laptop for use in the Quiz on Sunday? I can do it the old-fashioned way if necessary, but a laptop would help a lot as people will be able to see the questions on screen and not need to have them repeated. Also, extra manpower would be useful. Eg scoring, or reading out questions w...

Re: buy the forest/save the forest

Does anyone know how much £££ the liquidators need to raise, and whether the sale of other buildings (ie not 3 Bristo Place) might cover the debts? If the sale of other buildings cover the EUS debts, what happens then ? The Herald mentioned the figure of £300 000, but it is not clear whether that is...
