4th Feb 2016 11:03pm TV ,DVD, Speaker Set Up by fish5133

Set up the above for one of my gardening customers. When playing a certain DVD (not all) Getting music coming out of all speakers but voice only out of one, Is that likely to be the way they have recorded the dvd.

Speakers are connected to the DVD player using the simple speaker wire spring connections (not jack plugs) (subwoofer, centre speaker, 2 front 2 rear) . Music cds seem to be fine.

2nd Feb 2016 8:20pm Wirral Street Lights - Fail by diggingdeeper

It is reported that 1723 street lights are not working out of the total of 37,470. The council is about to do a check, I think they are in for a shock as I've been driving round looking at street lights quite a bit recently.

Ignoring the streets that have had the LED conversion, my estimate is that between 20% and 30% of lights are faulty which would make a figure of around 7,500 more realistic. There are areas with five lights out in a row, its just gone mad.

If the contractor is at fault I hope we get some recompense off them.

I reported one a couple of months ago which is still out, in the mean time two more lights have died making a string of three in a row dead.

28th Jan 2016 3:33pm LED Street Lights by Davefabo

I have noticed that the Council ( I assume its them) are starting to replace the old yellow sodium street light with white LED lights. Some have been replaced on Barnston Road, Arrowe Park Road and Pensby Road. On Barnston Road they are only in one section so its easy to compare the two types of street lighting.
Although Im sure the LED lights are cheaper to operate in my opinion they dont do as good a job of lighting up the road and the pavements as the yellow sodium lights do.
Where else is this change happening?

My mother in law decided to help wash up some dishes (bless her) and didn't realise the milk frother jug (yes we are posh--not) was electric ..so after fishing it out the wash up bowl it doesn't work. Opened it up and dried off best I could and sat it on radiator but still no joy. Fuse ok in plug. Don't know what bit inside doesn't like water. Bsially has a motor, switches and a heater and a cut out when milk reaches right temperature and also some kind of timer when it froths cold milk. Doesn't power up on any setting. Separate base unit that plugs in but this didn't get wet.

25th Jan 2016 3:24pm Get a head start. by venice

Well, human whole head transplant planned for 2017!!!
I cant get my head around it enough to be serious laugh

Can you imagine the questions that will bring up !!

Yes Judge, I didnt see his face but I can identify my attacker from last Summer from the birthmark on his body

Yes Dr,Im a VERY wealthy pensioner,wink wink , it would be a private operation,not NHS ,Id like the head from a twenty yr old please.

Well Dr,youre not racist or sexist are you? We're all the same under the skin arent we, so Id like a white female head please or maybe a black male one? Id welcome a change, anyway, and I can pay ...

---------------

Are they going to transplant the whole brain etc? All seems a bit weird at the moment. Not enough hard information to do anything but speculate.

Ive heard stories previously where even with just transplanted hearts, people apparently accquire a tendency towards the skills of the donor. Dont know how true that all is.

25th Jan 2016 10:36am Wristbands by casper

Campaigners on behalf of asylum seekers say the use of coloured wristbands to enable them to get free meals is degrading,if you go on an all inclusive holiday you will be issued with a wristband or a photographed ID card, I have been on these type of holidays were both systems have been used for ID purposes, if you use the swimming baths you are given a wristband which is most probably the simplest and cheapest form and can be re issued, if we were to give asylum seekers ID cards apart from the cost this would also be frowned on as a human rights issue, it just appears to me that at every attempt to help there appears to be problems, red coloured front doors is another one, apparently all the properties run by this company have red doors, not just the ones that house asylum seekers, it just appears that certain parties are looking for problems that dont really exist, this in turn backfires on those seeking asylum as being ungrateful and getting preferential treatment.

23rd Jan 2016 8:16pm Projectors by fish5133

Anyone throw a few pointers at me regarding what spec to look for.

I want to be able to project DVDs from a dvd player or laptop in say a small church hall/ room . Have seen some cheapish mini projectors but not sure what spec is best to look out for.
Also sound may be an issue. Do they just project a picture and you rely upon sound from the device the dvd is playing on.

I have a built in dvd player on a tv set can that also be diverted from showing on the TV and through the projector.

cheers in advance--technology passes me by quite quick these days

22nd Jan 2016 10:27pm Looking for a cousin by dingle

This is an unusual post. While searching(which I have been for the past 35 years) for my cousin(Susan Iddon) I found here mother's(my Auntie) death notice in the Wirral Globe. The notice mentioned not only Susan but her daughter Sarah, brother Paul and sister in law Jean and all the kid and grandkids.
Amelia(Milly) Iddon was buried on 22/2/2012 by Susan C. Porter Independent Funeral Directors. Now I don't know what to do or how to go about trying to get in touch with Susan or Paul. Any ideas out or help out there.

22nd Jan 2016 4:56pm Paying For Private Patrols - Poll by diggingdeeper

The PCC is asking for a 2% increase in our police precept to make up the short funding from government. This works out at £2.08 for Band A up to £6.24 a year.

Would you pay (say less than £5 a year) to have private security patrol your area?

20th Jan 2016 1:11pm Do we need Trident? by derekdwc

I don't know if it the only nuclear deterrent we have or if we have any land based one.
I think with the advances made with satellite surveillance drones,radar and computer hacking, that by the time Trident is built it would be too vulnerable to a first strike against it.
click

Fact is, the Navy has been seeking—pretty much under the surface—a way to do underwater what the Air Force has been doing in the sky: prowl stealthily for long periods of time, and gather the kind of data that could turn the tide in war.

The Navy’s goal is to send an underwater drone, which it calls a “glider,” on a roller-coaster-like path for up to five years. A fleet of them could swarm an enemy coastline, helping the Navy hunt down minefields and target enemy submarines.

17th Jan 2016 8:23pm Airport Drop Off Pick Up- Liverpool by fish5133

Doesn't seem that long ago since I was last there.Bu**ers have changed the free drop off collection point. The old free drop off collection is now £2 a short visit and they have moved the free one to what they say is a 5 to 10 minute walk from terminal Signposted Drop Off 2. Turn right at last roundabout instead of left into airport. Not signposted as free as you can imagine.
They have monopolised it very well with double yellows on all the approach roads and big warning signs with fines about stopping to drop off or pick up on them.
What do taxis do --are they charging customers £2 extra?
Daughter and boyfriend fit enough so they can walk.
