im interested what the general opinions there are on tranmere rovers selling the fields of remembrance.i,as a birkonian feel very bad about it.i have watched the rovers for nearly 60 years but feel they are totally out of order,yhere are things i would like to know,like how much they paid for the fields which were left for the public.how are they worth all these millions now.also the chaos it will cause the people who live there.the council should hang their heads in shame when they are stood in hamilton square on remembrance sunday.since the wirral took over birkenhead has gone down hill,this is the icing on the cake,whats next for this great town.

Today at 03:10 PM Windows Experience Index or better prog advice by derekdwc

I believe ms have done away with this to keep computer manufacturers happy.
I'm looking for something that does the same as Windows Experience Index (free if poss) but better as I have several pcs/laptops I want to sort out by keeping the best for me and giving the others to various family members.
I don't know much about various processors ,memory etc and can only guess as to the dearest and latest being the best

3 main laptops with windows 8 (have to learn how to work it) are
ASUS K55A 8gb memory
Lenovo g580 6gb memory
Lenovo g700 8gb memory

20th Aug 2014 10:57pm 'Dad's Army' in Mosslands School Sept 4 - 6 by Greenwood

Don't panic! That's not a reference to the staff...

Greasby Players are re-running their successful 'Dad's Army' production in Mosslands School, September 4th-6th with, if I remember rightly, two episodes of the show and some music. There's an article about it on page 12 of this week's Wirral Globe. It was very popular last time they did it, and it's in aid of the 'Save William' charity, raising funds to fight Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. So - good fun, in a good cause.
Tickets on sale from Pets Paradise on Seabank Road, or 207 Greasby Road, Greasby.

20th Aug 2014 3:14pm Cheeky garden lawn thieves by Mark

Bobby Stacey thought he had just about seen it all until he reviewed this footage from a newly installed CCTV camera outside his home.

The Skelmersdale man's eyes nearly popped out of his head at the sight of two middle age-looking women creeping along a footpath at The Mount and tearing off with bundles of his neighbour's freshly laid turf.

Watch two women who were caught on CCTV ripping up and running away with armfuls of newly laid turf Click Me

Turf isnt that expensive its it nowadays lol

19th Aug 2014 12:51pm Watch out they your number by Reno37

A friend of ours had the wing mirror smashed off his company van by fools driving not only too fast, but far to close to parked vehicles on Leasowe Road. He has children and like us all struggles to make a living, and he will have to pay for the damage caused by idiots. But never mind a neighbor witnessed the incident and reported the offending vehicle number, type, color, and driver description. So I am sure the driver who thinks he got away with it will be contacted soon. God Bless Good Neighbors

18th Aug 2014 3:32pm Wirral people wanted for dating show by RUDEBOX

http://www.wirralglobe.co.uk/news/114164...rce=twitterfeed

A CHANNEL Four dating show is looking for contributors from Wirral for their new series.

Producers from The Undateables are looking for single men and women with a physical, sensory or other impairment or long term condition who are looking for love.

The fourth series of the acclaimed documentary will once again follow disabled people and those with a variety of conditions through the highs and lows of their quest to find love.

Anyone interested in taking part, or would like to find out more, should call 020 7290 0223 or email undateables@betty.co.uk.

Just say No. This show was awful- very exploitive- last time it was on. in my opinion it deliberatley set out to make fun of those taking part.

18th Aug 2014 12:01pm Charging for Care Homes by Blueskier

This is quite a long winded post but i feel like i must bring this to the attention of others who may be, or will bein a similar situation with WBC Department for Adult Social Services.

When a person i have POA over entered a residential care home they had assets less than the 14000 threshold for paying for their own care. They had a property worth over that amount.

DASS tried to get the person to pay the full fees from the day they went into care. There is in fact something called a 12 week disregard over the persons home when they first enter care. This means they pay a contribution based only on their income for the first 12 weeks, the value of their home is not included.

When i brought this to their attention the DASS immediately accepted this and paid back the money.

Fast forward to the property now being sold. There are deferred payments that need repaying from the capital now. No problem. However DASS are trying to claim the money that was paid during the 12 week disregard. This is not how the regulations work. A disregard is a disregard a deferred payment is a deferred payment.

I am no expert but i am a reasonably intelligent individual.
The DASS should be the experts. Giving them the benefit of the doubt maybe it is just a one off mistake in our case.

You make your own judgement as to the reasons or motives. I am just stating facts.

Please make anyone you know who may have been in a similar situation aware. How many other, more vulnerable, people have actually paid this money when it was demanded when it shouldnt have been.

17th Aug 2014 10:15pm Boardman Hybrid Comp Stolen CH44 by Dodgy_Bob

My Boardman Hybrid Comp was stolen very early hours on 16/08/14 at roughly 01:55-02:10. Was in my garage to which they forced entry, 3 Males already have a rough idea on names for two of them and the bike was spotted yesterday evening outside Liscard KFC.
Been a very terrible month so far for us, got a child in Alder Hey, a poorly dog in the vets daily, telly blowing up, and then burgled.
Makes the blood boil that people see fit to take whats not theirs. Was definately a targeted robbery as they had two lesser bikes (not mine) within reach in the open and unlocked and nothing else was taken even though plenty of value was easily accessable once they gained entry.
And to add insult to injury as it was a C2W bike I'll still be paying for it for the remainder of the year! Just Great!
Any info please get in touch. [img:center]<a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/dodgy_bob/14764562307" title="boardman hybrid comp by Rob Wilkinson, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5553/14764562307_7ea3895508_s.jpg" width="75" height="75" alt="boardman hybrid comp"></a>[/img]

16th Aug 2014 11:25pm Galaxy s3 by Willo_

I have a galaxy s3 that had a small crack in screen, now yesterday phone was dropped, and now screen does not work at all, altho phone powers up as normal i just can not see anything on the screen.

A new screen will set me back 70 +, and as i have a S5 i can not justify that cost.

I am wanting to give the phone away on here as some one will get them selves a decent phone and they may be able to get a screen cheaper.

But am wanting to wipe the phone before giving it away. I have got all my pics etc etc of using kies as phone connects to pc no problem, but there are text messages and numbers stored on phone, is there any way to get them off and wipe the phone, before giving it away.
