Today at 12:51 AM Edward Chambre Hardman by granny

Some time ago , I think there was mention of Edward Chambre Hardman and his house/photographic studio in Liverpool.

Stumbled across this by accident, but thought it may be of interest to some. They left as much as possible just the same as it was left when Mr E Chambre Hardman had lived there.

Yesterday at 07:09 PM Park Entrance by locomotive

In the 50s and 60s I can remember political and religious speakers at the Birkenhead Park entrance on a Sunday, what happened to them, were they banned or did they just fade away?. This is something I haven't thought about in years, reading the book " Idle Hands Clenched Fists" this weekend reminded me of it.

27th Feb 2015 10:40am Ebay -again by venice

Only just started selling on Ebay , and hadnt noticed this before -- where does it tell you which starting times are cheaper or dearer?

"Disclaimer: Fees are estimates only. Actual fees may vary due to special offers and listing start times. If your item sells, you'll be charged a final value fee based on the total cost to the buyer, including postage, packaging and any other related costs."

26th Feb 2015 3:25pm Solar Eclipse. March 20th 2015 by RUDEBOX

Britain’s most complete solar eclipse in 16 years will block out as much as 90 percent of sunlight across the UK next month.

A solar eclipse, when the moon covers the sun blocking out its light, will take place on the morning of March 20.

The blackout will begin in the UK at 8.45am and the maximum eclipse, when the moon is nearest the middle of the sun, will be at 9.31am and It is due to end at 10.41am.

After the one in March, the next eclipse will be in 2018, but it’ll be very small.

The next big eclipse to cover the same amount of sky in darkness as this one will be in 2026.

There won’t be another full total eclipse until 2090.

That one is expected to be similar to the one in 1999, though it’ll be slightly further north and will happen as the sun sets.

We will have more info on what the weather will be like for observing the eclipse nearer the time.

We will also be releasing some handy tips on how to observe and photograph the eclipse, so keep an eye on our Facebook and twitter pages.

25th Feb 2015 11:15pm anyone to replace whole interior inc dash... by keving

Looking at replacing the complete grey leather interior on my Porsche cayenne with a black one from same model.

The whole dash and centre console is included with this, along with carpers, door cards, seats and other bits of trim.

Any idea who is proficient in doing this ? Not just some one who will have a go. Its the dash and centre console where I see the difficulty, and I want it doing correctly so no rattles, or broken fastenings afterwards.

Also I want an approx price, as not bought the interior yet.

24th Feb 2015 5:53pm Astra H Roof Rack Clips by j_demo

does anyone know of any scrapyards with an Astra H 3dr SXi/SRi/VXR lying around that looks like this:

a 5-door one may have the same part actually...

colour doesn't matter either.

i need 3 new roof rack clips (both rear and front right) and have paint here to paint them the silver that i need... the part is £13 each on ebay and i really don't fancy paying the quid short of £40 for 3 of them when a scrappy would probably let me get away with them for a tenner for the three if i got them off.

if i don't get any decent leads this week i'll guess i'll phone round and/or go visit some the week after next when i have some time off work.

cheers in advance for any useful replies smile

24th Feb 2015 12:19pm Scam alert! by Bizzybee1

Just received a phone call from one of our Asian cousins claiming to work for a legal company representing the Ministry of Justice. Apparently I am due £2,700 compensation less 10% admin charge. I am to receive this in the form of a cheque which will be delivered to my address personally by one their company's representatives. Upon receipt of this I am expected to pay the 10% back in the form of a Ukash cheque.

Now I could be accused of being sceptical here, but if their cheque bounced and they accepted my Ukash cheque, I could be £270 out of pocket. So, I asked if there was any objection to my neighbour, who is is a CID inspector , being present when their representative called........ and the line went dead.

20th Feb 2015 9:45pm Galah Cockatoo has flown off! by margy

My pink and grey galah cockatoo flew off from the garden at 4.10pm Thursday 19 February 2015.

She flew from Frankby Road, West Kirby, towards Wirral Mount/Black Horse Hill way.

She is a beautiful bird and very timid, so she's probably tucked away somewhere, please keep a look out for her.

Contact me if you see anything or hear anything at all thank you. She is bright pink with light grey wings.

Can I add a photo somewhere?

Does anyone know of a shop on Wirral (apart from Maplins) that does electric components, e.g potentiometers, switches etc, something on the lines of Brownings or Bert Aults, both sadly missed, or isn't there any call for that sort of place any more?

20th Feb 2015 8:48pm Renault Clio engine issue by Mike72

Hi can anyone recommend a mechanic who could come out and give me a diagnosis on what the problem is with my car. It is making a very loud knocking/banging noise from engine area. Possibly either gearbox or Thrust Bearing? but not sure. It doesn't make the noise when clutch is pressed. Thanks in advance
