      Borestone, many businesses, including Borestone Caravans and the Borestone Bar are named after the Borestone, a big stone with a hole in it, in which Bruce was said to have raised his banner before the Battle of Bannockburn. With the Bruce Statue, it is now part of the Bannockburn Heritage Centre beside the King Robert Hotel.

      I probably met your aunt as I used to get my calor gas there when I had a caravan. It is now an Ian Grieve commercial vehicle salesroom.

      You've heard the one about where most of the English are in Scotland? ...Buried in the fields of Bannockburn.

      To any of the English that take offence

      2Mb for a 0.2db decrease in the noise margin bods well for a good speed.

      That's alright - look again.

      Whilst the downstream noise margin has gone up, the upstream noise margin has dropped.

      What is more weird though is that the Line Attenuation figures for both have changed.
