Today at 11:44 AM Dog set on fire:any result yet? by jeremycorbon

watched "the dog rescuers" the other day as they had said the previous week they would follow up on the three cowards that hung a dog up in a yard then battered the poor little bugger and decided to then set it on fire. These 3 bits of sh** didnt go to court and must still be around. it is a fact that this kind of vile behaviour leads to similar treatment of human-beings and before it happens they should be found and put in broadmoor for the rest of their lives. Or maybe they are hiding or have already got their punishment,i do hope so. if anyone knows who they are let us all know

Yesterday at 12:11 PM Programming SkyFly for a boat by Martin1943

I recently purchased a SkyFly radio controller to use with my boat.
The boat has twin motors and a rudder to control.
The SkyFly has six channels
Is anyone able to help me configure the control to give selective forward and reverse to throttle for the motors; the rudder works fine.

23rd Sep 2016 11:18am How does this affect you? by venice

Came across this video on FB a couple of days ago. Did anyone feel like I did -- spellbound but uncomfortable ? Maybe Im being too sensitive and reading too much into it , but it worried me about what the children might have had to go through, to reach such unbelievable perfection for their tender ages (every note, inflexion, movement etc) - especially as we know how harsh the Chinese can be in their quest for their children to excel at things .

(It felt the same as I might feel about recognizing the stunning beauty of a fabulous and styled real fur coat on someone , whilst at the same time being outranged and condemning fur wearing because of the cruelty I know it involves.)

Any comments on the video ?

22nd Sep 2016 8:15am Finding my old car. by FlightlessNinja

Hi All,

I'm trying to get in touch with the current owner of my old VXR.

The reg began with CX56. It's Arden Blue and when I last had it, it had the 19" wheels.

The last thing I can find for it was an article for it being on sale in Birkenhead in 2009.

If anyone happens to have any info please PM me.

Many Thanks
Jon

21st Sep 2016 5:38pm House cat needs new home. by palemoon

Johnboy is about five years old and has lived in an apartment all of his life. He is spotlessly clean and uses a litter tray. He is completely black and smooth coated but a bit nervous by nature. He is not a lap cat although he loves being in the company of his owner. Ideally his new owner would be someone maybe living alone and looking for company.

Please PM me if you can help him.

18th Sep 2016 11:15am Trading Standards RE Game Machine by Pete_M

Hi all,
A friend of mine was quoted £50.00 to have a new HDMI port put in the back of a Playstation 4 as the pins were damaged. Other than that it was fine. He waited the 2.15 hours for it to be fixed. The engineer brought out and it fired up fine, he then switched it off and re-tested it, but this time it was dead! The guy said no fix no charge. My question is do any of you know were he stands as before the only problem was the HDMI output, now it is an expensive door stop!Any advice would be appreciated.

18th Sep 2016 8:44am Whither the cabs? by BandyCoot

Couldn't get a cab for love or money at midnight last night. Tried every firm and no joy. What was happening in the Wirral last night that caused every taxi to be booked up? Bit concerned because me and the missus stuck in the middle of nowhere and facing an hour walk home. If no cabs going to be on call it means we can't go out on a Saturday night anymore, pity. I feel there must be a reason for it, it seemed almost like industrial action. Didn't see any whizzing about when we managed to get a lift home with a bloke who luckily doesn't drink. oldman

18th Sep 2016 3:26am Cake shop Moreton Cross by moretonkiwi

Hoping someone can tell me the name of the cake shop that used to be under the little covered area next to Lloyds Bank and Oakenholt Road. I am interested in the 1930 - 1940 time period. I know there was a cake shop there in the early 60's at the time of Les Turner's tobaconnists and I believe this one was later to become a Barber's shop. My mother remembers that she used to buy cakes from it pre WW2 days.

Hi I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a good pump please? My child received a kids starter fish tank but the pump ends up sliding down the tank and the part that sucks air in always ends up submerged so it stops working. I've looked for one without suckers but have not found any. Just looking for recommendations from people please.

14th Sep 2016 4:28pm A very good question! by Excoriator

Here's Gary Johnson, the leader of the libertarian party of America asking a very real and important question. Something that has baffled millions. Maybe some in Wirral?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-us-2016-37309763

Fortunately, there were experts on hand to answer the question for us all. Nevertheless, it was a question that needed asking, and one can only congratulate him for doing so!

Clearly he is a man not afraid to ask difficult questions, and exactly what the American nation needs to lead it into a glorious future!
