Yesterday at 05:27 PM Art....No Cheating by granny

The following paintings , to my mind are remarkable.

There is a story behind them, and I wonder if you can guess the age and sex of the person who has painted/drawn them. Try not to cheat, it spoils it for everyone.

Sad to hear of Herbert Howe death today. Don't think there will be anyone that had not heard of this generous flamboyant hairdresser from Liverpool. I've had some laughs listenening to his stories on the radio. He definitely lived life to the full. R.I.P.

I don't know if other ISPs are having problems but talktalk are at the moment.

I can get into most European websites, but some USA, Iceland and some UK ones aren't happening at the moment.

Typically of talktalk, I can't get onto their site at all, the status page is invisible.

10th Oct 2016 8:59pm Merseyrail closures by oldpm01


A bit of an update from the council on the planned maintenance work on Merseyrail. Hilarious looking at replacement buses - at least every 15 minutes. At peak times on line from Chester/Ellesmere Port there is a train every 6 - 7 minutes - each with maybe 300 - 400 on. ! bus every 15 minutes will not work!

10th Oct 2016 11:01am Mobile phone coverage in Wallasey / Wirral? by martinharris

Just about to move to Wallasey but also need a new mobile phone contract. I wondered - on the basis of coverage alone - if there are any networks to avoid. I know that most companies have their problems and that there is always someone who has a nightmare story about a particular company, but has anyone noticed that coverage is much worse on the Wirral with one company over another? I'm talking about the big 4 basically - O2 / Three / Vodaphone / EE.

I'm aware of the coverage maps available online too - but wanted to hear from real people on the ground!

9th Oct 2016 11:35am Shogun Sport Warrior 2.5 TD: Something missing? by Habdab

Just bought a Shogun Sport Warrior 2.5 TD 2006. I notice that in the front offside wheel arch something is missing. I can see clean paintwork where it used to be and a small chunk of broken black plastic still bolted to the arch against the engine bay. There is a round one inch hole through into the engine bay in the middle of whatever was there.
Anyone have any idea what it was or if it was needed?

6th Oct 2016 6:56pm Buy a house in Greasby for 12s a week - in 1935 by yoller

I found this advert for new homes on the Greasby Hall Estate in a 1935 pamphlet. Does anyone know if these houses are still standing? Their prices ranged from £490 to £600 – I wonder how much they’re worth now? And was 12 shillings a week to buy a house really cheaper than renting way back then?

2nd Oct 2016 2:24pm Barmy Online Tests Just To Work In A Supermarket! by Jobneeded67

Are any other jobseekers are as FED UP as I am with these barmy personality tests that these big supermarkets and stores are using now to filter out job applicants? You just can't get past the darn things. You often spend nearly a whole damn HOUR filling in seemingly endless questions - only to get back a soul destroying rejection email.

They make me laugh these stores. They advertise for Xmas staff, and then when you apply, they insist on putting you through personality test hell.

I give up.

30th Sep 2016 10:24pm Does anyone know a good Diesel diagnostician? by Habdab

I have a 2.8 Litre Turbo diesel that's just begun continuously throwing out white smoke that smells of paraffin. It just did a 1000 mile journey last week with no problems until last night when it started up on 3 cylinders then the fourth started. It ran fine but started smoking. I thought a broken injector, anyone have any ideas or know of a good mechanic I can get a diagnosis from?

29th Sep 2016 11:44am Dog set on fire:any result yet? by jeremycorbon

watched "the dog rescuers" the other day as they had said the previous week they would follow up on the three cowards that hung a dog up in a yard then battered the poor little bugger and decided to then set it on fire. These 3 bits of sh** didnt go to court and must still be around. it is a fact that this kind of vile behaviour leads to similar treatment of human-beings and before it happens they should be found and put in broadmoor for the rest of their lives. Or maybe they are hiding or have already got their punishment,i do hope so. if anyone knows who they are let us all know
