Yesterday at 11:26 AM Free Fridge by Habdab

Free White HOMEKING under counter fridge. Very clean and works. Is prone to the top back panel icing up but apart from that it works great. Whoever collects needs to bring someone to carry it down stairs from 1st floor flat, and transport to take it away.

27th Jun 2016 4:53pm David Cameron by snowshoes

I understand David Cameron is not the most popular person in
the UK. However, watching him now in The House of Commons he
makes me believe he is a great Statesman for the UK. Unlike
our schoolboy Justin Trudeau. Very different from his Dad Pierre.

Is the UK a bit like a ship without a Captain at this point?

25th Jun 2016 6:07pm VR Headsets by Peter0787

Bought a VR headset for a bit of fun the other day. Managed to find a few apps but nothibg too exciting. Just like rollercoasters and 'scary' ones. Just wondering if there is anything better out there? Is there a possibility of using the rear camera (ie use your surroundings and things added to it) make it a little more interesting?

21st Jun 2016 10:22am Sky HD and phones by ponytail

2 weeks ago I got sky HD fitted and last week my phoneline went dead, the internet refused to connect (when it did, it was so slow). Does anyone know how the telephone connections work, I am with BT? I don't use the Sky broadband as I am with another provider. My modem lights up and also the test port in the telephone/ADSL box doesn't work. Anyone ideas - I don't know whether to call out Sky or BT.

17th Jun 2016 3:14pm Wheelie Bin Possible THREE-Weekly Collection. by diggingdeeper

A new scheme is going to be introduced with a third bin in Wirral for food waste.

The food bin will be collected every week, however it is undecided yet as to whether the Green bin will be collected two-weekly or three-weekly. Presumably the Grey bin periodicity will also be under revue.

It is acknowledged that Wirral's recycling rate has dropped because of the charge for Brown bin collection. The fix would seem obvious to most people - but not Wirral council!

15th Jun 2016 12:49am 33 lions by granny

Did anyone follow the return of 33 rescued lions from Peru and Columbia , back to their homeland of South Africa ? An immense operation which was completely successful. There can be nothing but total admiration for these people.

I have followed their story so far, and they have all settled in well. Unfortunately two lions and two lionesses took ill last week. The two lionesses did not survive, which is so sad.

The first video they made of the rescue. The second video is complied from some of the same footage but also footage of their arrival at Emoya big Cat Sanctuary.

14th Jun 2016 2:16pm Modded Games Consoles by Peter0787

Been having a bit of a nostalgic moment talking to colleagues about old games consoles and games.

They were talking about the ability to run emulators for certain consoles on consoles like the original XBox and Wii.

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Is it easy to do?

10th Jun 2016 5:21pm Futon bunk bed by ynwa96

Pretty much identical to this one but the matresses are different:-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-HOME-LIVING-ROOM-FURNITURE-FUTON-BUNK-BED-FRAME-ONLY-IN-SILVER-METAL-FINISH-/301958085401?hash=item464e1abb19:g:e-gAAOSwfC9XOXzy

Complete with mattresses, if required. The only thing wrong is the mechanism is slightly bent so when you change it from couch to bed you just neeed to make sure it doesn't catch the bed. This is easy to do though because you can use the handles to guide it past. Brilliant for nowt but would need to be collected due to me only having a VW Polo!

10th Jun 2016 2:42pm 90p bus fares for the queens bday all weekend by eddtheduck

Arriva has announced an eye-catching deal to mark the Queen’s official birthday this weekend.

Canny customers can get up to 80% off some bus fares today and over the weekend.

But you need to buy your ticket on your phone, through Arriva’s m-ticket app.

Then you need to enter the promo code 9003, and hey presto.

All day tickets have been slashed to just 90p from today until Sunday, June 12.

That includes Liverpool PLUS, Wirral PLUS, Halton and North West tickets.

Anyone travelling across the north west can see their fare plummet from £5.30 to 90p - an extraordinary 83% saving.

Liverpool and Wirral PLUS day tickets have been slashed from their normal £4.30 rate, and Halton tickets cut from £4.

The offer doesn’t include family tickets.

If you haven’t bought a mobile ticket before, all you need to do when you board is show the driver the ticket on your screen.
*Revealed - Bus companies' policies on passengers paying with notes

It’s not the first time Arriva have cut fares for Her Majesty, with the 90p promotion also offered to mark for other official celebrations in April and May.

Arriva’s website reads: “Happy Birthday Ma’am - celebrate and save with Arriva!

Celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday with our m-ticket reductions. The offer gets better in June, travel all day for 90p - 10th to 12th June inclusive!

“For our final celebration discount we will be reducing all of our Day M-Tickets within the North West and Wales region - Adult and Child tickets - to just 90p.”

9th Jun 2016 8:05pm The Giants 2018 could link Liverpool and Wirral by eddtheduck

Giants creator Jean Luc Courcoult has paid a visit to Liverpool to check out new locations for a return of the spectacular.

And this time he has also been looking at key sites on the Wirral side of the Mersey.

The flamboyant artistic director of Nantes-based Royal de Luxe – the team behind the 2012 Sea Odyssey and 2014's Memories of 1914 – saw venues including Birkenhead Park, Port Sunlight and Hamilton Square before taking a trip on the Dazzle Ferry.

Giants are set to return in 2018

He met with Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson and Wirral Council leader Cllr Phil Davies to discuss plans for 2018.

Speaking on the waterfront, Jean Luc said: “I’ve been visiting a little bit of Liverpool and a little bit here in Wirral.

“We’re working on a show for 2018 about the commemoration of the end of the First World War .

“I’m very very happy to be here with the two mayors [sic] and to work together to see how we can put on this huge spectacle.


“It will be a new spectacle, a new story, and a lot more locations this time.”

And he added: “I love Liverpool!”

Plans for a return of the popular Giants were revealed by Mayor Anderson last month as part of an ambitious year of events in 2018 to mark 10 years since Capital of Culture, as well as a host of other key anniversaries.

The Mayor said: “It’s the first meeting we’ve had, although we’ve had phone conversations about him doing this.

“We’ve had discussions over the last few months about how we can work together again, but equally how we can work with Wirral.

“We’re talking to the Department of Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS) around 14-18, and it was always something we wanted to do, end the commemorations of the First World War.

“It will be a story people can follow. There are some quirky things in Jean Luc’s mind.”

The 2018 events will mark 100 years since the Armistice, which took place in November 1918.

Birkenhead-raised poet Wilfred Owen was killed a week before peace was declared, and there are plans to include some of his work in the new spectacle.

Cllr Davies added: “We’ve showed Jean Luc various venues here in Wirral, and he loves the spaces, particularly Birkenhead Park.

“I just know Wirral residents would come in their droves to see the Giants, on both sides of the river it would be fantastic.

“We’re particularly keen to link it to Wilfred Owen. His poetry is poignant and evocative. But we are also looking forward on an optimistic note to how nations can work more closely together.”

5th Jun 2016 9:49am Noise pollution by Excoriator

According to google earth, I live about two miles from the Echo arena, yet during the past two days, the quiet of the evening has been ruined by a mindless and repetitive thumping emanating from that location.

I assume that it is some sort of 'musical' event which may sound better close up, but it is ludicrously over amplified and the low frequency thumping is all that comes through at this distance. Close up, the sound level must have been dangerously high.

Given that there are a lot of people living within a two mile radius of the arena, I am far from alone in having suffered this nuisance.

Surely it must be possible to limit this nuisance, either by limiting the amplified sound, or soundproofing the building.
