Home from London Monday to find routers been out over the weekend. New router posted to me today. Very kind of them as they will charge me if I don't post the old one back to them. (prepaid envelope provided though).
I love the recorded message you get. "You will need to do a factory reset on your router--full instructions can be found online.....!"

Anyone else need a new router .factory reset didn't work so they posted new one.

6th Dec 2016 6:25pm Vet help by colin86

Hi guys and girls looking for a bit of help or advice, my mums French bulldog has recently had an accident and hasn't been able to walk properly since Sunday...my mum since took the dog to the pdsa who informed her she'd need to take the dog to her vet who wanted £1500 for an X ray which could rise to £3000 should she need an op.... and as my mum works she doesn't fit the criteria for help ( as she works for a living) they can't do anything. Now obviously when she bought the dog she should of got insurance and unfortunately she didn't so she's literally snookered. She can't raise that sort of cash this time of year but could with maybe a payment plan of sorts I dunno. She's just desperate to get the dog the help without suffering long term. If anyone has any helpful information or vets that could help please let me know. Many thanks guys and girls.

Following on from the successful WTUC public meeting held at Wallasey Town Hall in August this will give members of the CLP the opportunity to update you on the current situation following on from the Labour Party report into the CLP and the 102 page written response to that by 3 local party members.

Local party members are eager to move on and have the CLP reinstated so that they can fully engage in the fight against Tory cuts. the fight for our NHS and all of the other issues that are hitting people so hard. Please try to attend and listen to what's going on and have the opportunity to ask questions and make your views known.

The venue is accessible and children accompanied by adults are welcome. If you have any specific requirements or questions on this please advise WTUC on this e-mail address- wirraltuc@gmail.com - and we will get back to you.

23rd Nov 2016 11:56am Microsoft virus scam call by Finney

I have just had a very interesting telephone conversation with a Nigerian gentleman called John Smith ( very original ). He claimed to be from Microsoft and advised me that my computer had flagged up as having a virus and that he was able to fix this problem over the phone if I switched on my computer and followed his instructions.
My computer was on already and so I told him to hang on a minute whilst it booted up and I logged on (I went and made a cup of tea).
John Smith then told me to press the windows logo key and the letter R on my keyboard at the same time...After a slurp of tea and a custard cream biscuit I said ok whats next, he told me a pop up box should appear with some script in it. I told him I could see this and also a box that wanted me to type something into it, he asked what it said above the box.
My reply was unprintable and so was his. He then hung up, unfortunately his number was withheld.
Luckily I knew this was a scam from the minute he told me he was from Microsoft and so was happy to wind him up and let him think he was on to a winner.
....PLEASE DO NOT BE A VICTIM OF CYBER FRAUD AND DONT FOLLOW ANY INSTRUCTIONS HE MAY GIVE YOU AS HE IS TRYING TO GAIN REMOTE ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER AND WILL THEN HAVE ACCESS TO ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION AND PASSWORDS.........

This is the photo of little Jessica , a cancer victim who has just died.
Its really upsetting and hard to accept that we have still not got the ability or the right to make sure people , especially chidren, do not have to suffer these levels of pain when they are losing their fight for life. Feel gutted for her and her parents who had to view the situation . Absolutely heart wrenching.

16th Nov 2016 12:34pm RSPCA at it againt they do a good job by fish5133

Whilst no doubt they do a good job it seems too often they are getting power mad.
2 Globe stories this week showing both sides of the RSPCA plus a main stream article about removing their powers.

Local lady who had done voluntary work with animals had own dog take ill (ear tumour). Dutifully she took it vets to get treatment which obviously didn't work. Not wanting to have the dog put down (financial concerns) she let the problem take its natural course trying to treat it herself. Someone (probably the Vet-as the ear tumour was not visible to public) contacted the RSPCA. Judge said if you don't have pet insurance you shouldn't have a pet. Our vet said it wasn't worth us getting insurance and we might not get it because our kitten already had cat flu.

The other story I agree with the RSPCA. A dog owner tried to euthanize his own dog in a horrible way. Had he been able to shoot it through the head it might have been considered humane.

Main Stream Media...RSPCA should be stripped of prosecution powers, say MPs

15th Nov 2016 12:34am A simple vote could just clinch it. by venice

Freshfield Animal Rescue are trying hard to win animal lovers votes to get the charity some money from 'Aviva '. This money is towards F.Fields own vet room , a move which will cut their bills dramatically long term.

Registering on the Aviva site and then using the email link they send you to vote, is simple albeit fiddly , but I signed a week or more ago, and theres been no annoying communications from Aviva or anything further , which I had thought there might be.
SO,theres only a couple of voting days left..... if you want to help a load of animals in one fell swoop, please register and give your 10 votes to Freshfields vet fund. The competition is really fierce and the staff are desperate not to lose their vet room dream . Below is further info on the project , the link is also in the blurb..

11th Nov 2016 12:20pm Armistice day by Excoriator

I have no objection to people remembering the fallen in various conflicts over the years, although my view is that this should be done in a more concrete form by the government taking better financial care of the maimed survivors and their families rather than making them dependent on a charity.

But I see no good reason for some New Ferry local to take it upon himself to mark the beginning and end of the two minute silence with a thunderous detonation. We all have access to accurate time, but not only is it uneccessary, it is the last thing anyone who has experienced shelling wants to hear. Many more disagree with the whole tasteful remembrance ceremony business and see it as a thinly disguised attempt by politicians and the military to recruit more cannon-fodder.

I won't go as far as hoping this local enthusiast blows himself up, but I hope he will realise that it is considered neither necessary nor desirable by many of us.

It is worth remembering that the glorious dead cannot speak up and make their views felt, and the glorious maimed, blinded and damaged ones are never allowed to express their views.

7th Nov 2016 10:26am Wild Rabbit for Cooking by woofie

Hi.Is there anywhere in the Wirral where I can buy fresh caught Wild Rabbit,Squirrel etc? This was once very common & cheap to buy in local Butchers and is a tasty low-fat meat.
Unfortunately, with the decline of high street butchers, I can only find this & other Game meat to buy online which cost far too much in postage.
If there are any pest controllers,ferret workers, or shooting enthusiasts who can supply them, I would be grateful to hear from you.
