24 minutes 40 seconds ago Free pest control for farmers by katter

Are there any farm/landowners that require free pest control? I am a fully insured BASC member wishing to shoot on and with a silent and discrete PCP air rifle (BSA R10 MK2). I am an experienced shot and wish for permission for shooting nearer home. If you are interested PM me.

Today at 01:24 PM Worth a look by venice

Maybe for next time if youve missed this holiday. Off Money saving expert site


Teens in England and NI who are aged 16 (and turned this age before 31 Aug this year) or 17 at the time of the trip can apply to the National Citizen Service to go on a week-long course (including three nights away) and 30 hours community work. Activities include canoeing, climbing and hiking.

It's either free or no more than £50, with all meals, activities, transport and accommodation included.

How: Go to the National Citizen Service site to enter your details and to find out about your nearest scheme (parents or teenagers can fill it out).

The programmes will take place during the dates of your local area's October half-term week. You can book up until the start of a programme in your area providing there's availability - this means it might be too late for some of you to join in this half-term.

There are hundreds of places in all areas of England and NI taking part in the scheme. It's a Government initiative and bursaries are available as providers aren't allowed to turn away kids for financial reasons. This has been popular with MoneySavers before.

What does the course include?

Days 1-4 (three night, four day residential): Teens will stay at an outdoor activity centre and take part in activities such as hiking, kayaking and rock climbing. This part of the programme focuses on personal and social development.
Days 5-7 (at home): Teens will take part in team workshops to learn life skills, such as first aid and financial management. They will design a social plan to make a positive change to the local community. This involves spending an extra 30 hours on evenings and weekends after the course to deliver it.
They'll also get a certificate signed by the Prime Minister.

For all the details, see National Citizen Service Deals.

20th Oct 2014 1:30pm New Ferry tram depot by 8HBob

The former Birkenhead Corporation tramcar depot from New Ferry is just about to be dismantled - for the second time.
The structure was disposed of in 1927 & moved to Corwen where it became Corwen Pavilion. The curved openings for the trams at either end can still be seen in the corrugated iron sheeting. The building has been derelict for some time & is full of asbestos containing materials.
The building is next to the new Llangollen Railway terminus on Corwen Common.

FCUK has caved in and decided to stop selling it , which goes towards helping stamp out the trade where battery farmed Angora rabbits have their fur hand stripped from their bodies every 8 weeks, often causing severe pain.

19th Oct 2014 2:08pm Good idea for tax disc holder by Willo_

POLICE have dreamt up a new use for the licence disc holders that every car carries on its windscreen - one which could save lives.

The switch from paper tax discs for cars to the new electronic version has meant that the familiar transparent plastic envelopes have become obsolete - but PC Dave Wise and colleagues have thought up a new use for them.

They have come up with an emergency contact information and medical alert card.

PC Wise said: "This is a really useful replacement for your tax disc. if a driver is involved in a collision or has a medical emergency whilst at the wheel, a first responder will have easy access to vital medical information and we can quickly contact next of kin.

"The way the disc folds in on itself means all the information is kept private until needed by emergency services personnel."

The policing team, based in Malvern, Worcestershire, put the template for the form on their Twitter account, @MalvernCops

It can be easily printed out, cut out, filled in, folded up and placed in the holder.

"We will be linking in with local ambulance and fire commanders to make them aware of this initiative so they can be on the lookout for these emergency contact discs," said PC Wise.

You can download and print the form here

17th Oct 2014 12:28pm Liverpool Everyman theatre... by chriskay

...has won the Riba Stirling prize. Great looking building; so much better than the awful Birmingham Library which won the popular vote. I remember visiting the original Everyman several times back in the 1960's/70's.

This morning the front spring snapped on my 06 318d. It is stuck on my drive at the moment. Can anyone give me a price to fix it. It obviously can't be moved but there is plenty of room to get to it. I've got it jacked up and the wheel off if anyone needs to take a look.

16th Oct 2014 11:05pm Trades in Poulton/Wallasey in 16th/17thcentury by granny

I've been trying to find anything which would indicate, trades in the Poulton or Wallasey areas during the 16th and 17th centuries.

With that in mind I wondered why the Cheshire Cheese Pub was so called. Apparently the name of the pub was mentioned in 1500's and although it has moved from it's original home, Wallasey Village has changed much. The first Cheshire Cheese was taken by road to London from Chester in 1623, and hence forth taken by sailing vessels as it was in great demand and classed as the best in the country.
I wondered if the pub could have any connections with the cheese being made in or shipped from this area also.
Anyone know of any other trades. I thought I read somewhere and can't remember where, that there was leather tanning in Poulton, which would have been a perfect area with the river and the oak trees.
I think cordwaining was also in Poulton/Wallasey area.

15th Oct 2014 9:12am Multiple hard drives by Excoriator

I recently bought a solid state drive. Not wanting the hassle of transferring windows from the old drive to it, I reinstalled a separate copy of windows onto it and bought a useful little unit from China which allows you to power up to six SATA disk dives (SSD of HDD) individually.

It cost me £20 and allows me to boot up from either - or another old drive I happened to have - by deselecting the others before switch on. Once the machine has booted up, you can switch on the other drives and access files from them as you wish. Took me about 30 minutes to install in a spare bay.

It saves a lot of hassle trying to reinstall software and copy data etc. if you are thinking of upgrading to a new disc.

15th Oct 2014 12:17am The Haunting Of 65 The Village... [23-25th Oct] by JaiBuk

The Haunting Of 65 The Village follows the story of Mary, one of the earliest known librarians at the Bebington Free Library. Outgrowing its original location at the infamously eccentric local Thomas Francis' home due to popularity, Joseph Mayer purchased a barn and surrounding farm land to design & build a purpose built library for the public next to his home...

Upon moving the original collection of books and antiquities to the new building some of Thomas Francis' own personal items became lost in the collection, some of these items coming from his travels and explorations of the Occult, Wicche and Pagan secret sects.

It was believed at the time Mary became obsessed with finding these lost books, seeking out the dark scriptures amongst the thousands of transferred manuscripts and papers, becoming increasingly wild and hysterical in her quest to locate them...

Over the past 100 years there have been various recorded sightings, possessions and happenings within 65 The Village, finally in the 1970's, it was decided to close the door on the library for good pending an investigation and never to open it up to the public again... That is until now...

For three nights only we welcome you to step inside and discover what's been locked away for over 30 years...

Join us Thursday 23rd - Saturday 25th October...

Are your brave enough to encounter Mary?

Tickets are still available at a discounted price of £3.00 each from www.65TheVillage.co.uk

14th Oct 2014 9:59pm Tranmere Sack Manager and Wirral Council CEO To Go by fish5133

Maybe the fortunes of TRFC and WBC will now turn. Moyes is looking for a new managerial role--how about it Moyes fancy CEO at Wirral Borough Council. Plenty of experience having millions and not doing much with it!

After reading the "plaudits", from fellow council leaders for Wirral CEO Graham Burgess who was shoe horned in to decimate Wirral Council by making multi £millions of cuts and savings--I cant help thinking the old boys network is rallying around him. Isnt the captain supposed to be the last to leave the sinking ship----women and children first.

Nice he is able to retire at 62. Firemen and teachers 68?
