Good stuff on Govan High School Jimmy. The school headmaster has a good reputation.
In my time at the school the headmaster was an elderly gentleman called Mr. Hutcheson. After the school burned down the Govan High Bella pupils had Bud Neil.

Buzzcut performance art festival


http://files.stv.tv/imagebase/286/650x366/286257-action-hero-at-buzzcut.jpg


Live art, people, food, hugs ... it sounds like the perfect recipe for Glasgow’s latest performance art festival. Throw free entry into the mix and we’re sold. If you wander over to The Pearce Institute in Govan during the next few days, you’re guaranteed some interesting encounters.

You could be serenaded by a pop-up choir, take part in a pet show minus the pets, witness a six-hour verbal sparring match, have a chat with someone in the dark or get your mop coiffed into a dodgy 70s hairdo in a caravan. It’s all part of Buzzcut, a free festival celebrating performance art in Glasgow which kicks off tomorrow and runs through to Sunday.

http://gms.cachefly.net/images/c545fda2cff796659c099aee16863899/960.jpg


David Moyes' future at Manchester United was sealed after a number of senior players turned to Sir Alex Ferguson to demand change, reports the Daily Mail. The former Everton boss was relieved of his job on Tuesday morning following a dismal 11 months in charge at Old Trafford. He had been given a six-year contract by Manchester United following Ferguson's recommendation, but officials took the decision to sack him following United's 11th league defeat of the season on Sunday.
