Neverendum: 'Not at this stage'
So when is the next independence referendum? No, hang on. Stop whimpering like that. Bear with me. You may soon have withdrawal symptoms from the campaign, so why not plan for the next one?
After all, 1.6 million people wanted Scotland to be independent - the nationalists among them irreconcilable to UK citizenship, some of them newly and passionately mobilised to the cause.
They may be heart-sore at losing. It will hurt all the more to have seen the opinion polls narrow to a dead heat, with momentum apparently going their way, only to see a decisive result turn against them on the night.
But they're not going away. So what else would happen to their cause but a campaign for another referendum to give it another big heave?
No, hang on, I hear you say. Alex Salmond made it clear that this vote was "once in a generation", a rather vague measure of time which he later suggested could be 18 years - the gap between the 1979 and the 1997 referendums on home rule.
Scotland Decides: Headquarters - Who needs 'em?
We're told the only threat from Scottish banks taking their registrations south of the border is that the nation's stock of brass plaques will be diminished.
The first minister said this week that Scots are interested in jobs and company operations rather than corporate name plates.
Scotland Decides: Profit or loss?
Scotland Decides: Mandate with destiny
Picking up my dictionary and looking for the definition of the word "mandate", I found this sentence: "Political authority supposed to be given by electors to [a party in] parliament".
It also gave an alternative legal definition that "someone given a mandate does so with indemnity against loss".
Who speaks for Scottish business?
The distinction between lobbying and political campaigning can be a fine line.
The Confederation of British Industry hasn't just stepped over it. In doing so, it's tripped over itself, and fallen on its face.
The Shetland Dividend
Shetland has no intention of playing its oil card and pushing for its own independence, the council leader has told me.
Gary Robinson says that would be too greedy. It would mean far more wealth than Shetland could possibly use.
Growth, insecurity and change
For most of these downturn years, the Scottish economy has behaved rather like that of the UK as a whole.
As I've noted before, Scotland may be the outlier in its geography and constitution, but it's far more like the UK average than, say, London.
Sanpower buys House of Fraser in £480m deal
From Mohamed al Fayed to Iceland's business buccaneers, the House of Fraser portfolio has secured its owners many of Britain's most prestigious retail locations.
And at a time of unprecedented change for the industry, that is testament to the vision of the Fraser family, and to the endurance of the department store format.
Whisky joins the slowdown in luxury goods growth
BenRiach whisky has strong distribution in Africa, where two of its three owners live.
In the Angolan capital, Luanda, oil-rich Chinese executives come through duty free sales at the airport, and when the senior guy picks up a £300 bottle of single malt, then others in his party are honour-bound to do the same.
Scotch whisky exports remain flat
We've heard from individual distillers that the fall-off in the Chinese market has a lot to do with official government disapproval of conspicuous consumption, and a crackdown on the culture of business gifts, as they easily cross the line into corruption.
It's a challenge that has hit the premium and luxury goods market in quite a big way.
