I have a BMW 3 series and I need a new engine earth strap fitting.... I have the new part. It involves taking off the underside engine cover to fit it so I can't do it myself on ramps as there's not enough room and I'm too old!!! Can anyone quote me a price to fit it? Thanks Gerry
This afternoon, Wirral Council has revealed plans with its joint partner, Muse Developments, for the regeneration of Birkenhead town centre. See 'Wirral View'.
"Birkenhead town centre is expected to see new commercial offices built around Conway Park train station, with outstanding transport links to the Merseyrail underground network and Liverpool and beyond."
Has anyone any knowledge about these please? Are they as good as they sound , any disadvantages,leakproof, will they last etc . Sound ideal for people with rheumaticky hands.

There was a workhouse at Clatterbridge originally , and it was later used as the hospital . Looking at the photo, its supposed to be taken from near the bridge where the road crosses the river Clatter, but I cant recognize it at all? Was that building completely demolished - presumably having been behind the old main gates where the boulders are now? The part of the building on the left of the photo looks the same style as those which are still there , but nothing there now would be close enough to the road to be the original ? ( Actually this whole pinterest site has some great pics to look through)
The 1841 census return shows farmers Elizabeth (Munipot) Manifold and Samuel Manifold occupying 200 acres of land belonging to Sir Thomas Massey Stanley Massey Stanley. Township of Ledsham, Parish of Neston. They employ 5 farm labourers. From my records Elizabeth was born circa 1796 (Whitby) and Samuel c. 1801. I am trying to link this Samuel Manifold family with my ancestors James and Hannah Manifold whose children were baptised in the Thornton Hough area. Is there a map which shows where Sir Thomas lived and the name of his property? Thankyou for any advice.
Its been a long time coming, many left-wing activists have been annoyed by him blurring the lines between socialism and right-wing.
I don't entirely agree with this action but I can see where they are coming from. If one way or another he is de-selected they are going to have to find the right (well left really) candidate or this could seriously backfire.
Id like to remind people of the start of the destruction of fire service via labour asking staff to sign for the 1992 pension scheme and/ or " new " one that ripped firemen off and still affects them now 11 years later as the FBU have been in court for 3 years using the age discrimination act. It split the workforce in 2007 causing divide & conquer techniques. Pls remember also it was sadiq kahn and champange socialist toad prescott that has caused a massive multi million pound PFI bill for 20 years , they okd the waste of space white elephant 999 regional controls that the taxpayer funds for an age. Under labour the fifth man on the truck went too. Manning levels where destroyed under labour. The irony of dan stevens over seeing halving of all stn trucks & staff in 10 years and then moaning about it like he cared!! To top it , getting off to OZ to be chief for a nice fat salary on that very premise....money saving. " saving the fire service " via labour....i dont think so.
Bobbed into Lidl Birkenhead last night and couldn't find any baskets. When I asked a member of staff they told me that 197 of the 200 baskets they had been allocated have been stolen. Not an amazing heist but just gradually disappeared. Usually churn rate for these things is a few per cent not 96%. Is there a market for these trolley/baskets or something? Weird.

Wirral Horse Sense care for many abandoned animals . They have been badly let down by those responsible for letting them the site they use in Thornton Hough - a promise of lease renewal not being kept. Wirral needs this sanctuary . Can you sign their petition and or make a donation ?
Hi I am doing a little investigation into the property at 12 Pilgrim Street, Birkenhead; specifically previous businesses that were located their, as well any pictures of the site. As the building was opposite the Pilgrim Street County Primary School i thought it was likely their would be some images of the area, or people would have recollections of the site as it was. So far the only pictures i have been able to find of that part of Birkenhead are on britainfromabove, for example https://britainfromabove.org.uk/image/eaw029288 https://britainfromabove.org.uk/en/image/EAW001721 where the street can be seen on the right of the images. Any help would be most welcome.
Road closed in both directions between ASDA and Arrowe Park Hotel. Possibly 8pm tonight reopen as investigation work being done. Diversions through Woodchurch and up towards Thingwall. Possible bus involved
Somebody not even thinking of stopping at the t-junction of Thornton Common Road and Poulton Hall Road near Raby Mere. Unusually I managed to find the horn, I still prefer them in the centre of the steering wheel, trying to press something on a stalk that moves around isn't very controllable. My car skidded to a stop, roads are pretty greasy at the moment.
Front page of Wirral Globe this week - and also on their website - is a map showing many areas in which an interest has been shown by developers. On Facebook I've seen a list of areas and prospective numbers of houses, too. As you might expect, a lot of them are on Green Belt - I mean, what developer doesn't like a nice green field on which to build? Hmph. If all the properties planned for Wirral Waters (will that ever happen?) were actually built, the Green Belt wouldn't need to be threatened. Check, in case a green space near you is under threat.
I bought this a few years back as a project guitar to do up and i started but never finished.
When i got it initially it wasn't working, the pickups didn't work (the stock DiMarzio pickups were long gone and cheap ones replaced them) so i put an Ibanez INF3 in the neck position and a MightyMite high output one in the bridge and so it at least makes noise now. The only thing is the volume knobs don't work, the tone ones and the pickup selector work fine, just the volume knobs don't work. I'm sure it's an easy fix for someone in the know but hey, it makes noise at full volume, that's what Les Paul's are all about right?
Also the stock tuners were trash and one was seized so i used some that i had lying round (they say 'Gibson Deluxe on them but they're not what they say they are, they work but they're by no means Gibson Deluxe quality)
The strings could also do with a change. I think they're .10's that are on it but equally .09's will work. Anything heavier you'll need to play with the bridge etc.
This would be great for someone who wants to learn.
Also if you wanted to take it to sell on (these go for about 70 quid on eBay when they're fully working but i cba with all the hassle) then i can't stop you but would rather it went to someone who was going to use it, i don't have the space and i have too many guitars as it is so one has to go and this one being the one i play the least then it needs a new home.
Manchester airport starting to charge for dropping off holidaymakers.£3 5 minutes £4 10 minutes...i can see you being stuck in queue that long. Starts this Tuesday according to website. There this morning Terminal 2 and the new pay barriers at exit in place. Can see tailbacks on that one as its a bit of a tight turn onto main road.. I think they have a new free drop off area with a free shuttle bus to your terminal. Not sure about the picking up now as they dont seem to have any places you can stop easily (petrol stations gone) Might be ok if the shuttle bus takes them back to a drop off area.
Someone has disabled the parking meters at Royden Park by filling them with expanding foam!
I imagine these machines are now a write-off. That foam expands and goes hard sticking firmly to everything. The mechanism would probably be irreparable and would have to be replaced and probably costs a fortune too. The Wirral Globe dismisses this as 'Mindless Vandalism' but it can also be seen as the public taking back control from a bunch of politicians doing something the people they represent clearly strongly oppose. Perhaps the council should have taken the hint and removed the machines. However, they seem to have replaced them.
Whilst not advocating further damage I can't deny feeling a degree of schadenfreude at this protest, and I expect I am not the only one. Further attacks seem very likely. One could argue, too, that it is the public who pay for these machines, ultimately, and that surely gives them the moral right to do what they like with them.
Anyone remember these, found it today, buried. Corona stopped production in 1990 but as this is pre-decimalisation it is probably around 50 years old. Think they used to be delivered on the "Pop Wagons" as well or were they only Barr's? Big thick glass because they were re-used.
