Review of Cardross by Ian Clarke on December 22nd, 2009
I was born in Cardross in 1948 in a wee room above what is now the local chemist shop.
Went to school in the old school and then the new primary.

We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special. - Stephen Hawking
