My neighbor Brian Mallor who lives here on the Isle of Man is in his 80s and he used to work on the ferry before he retired. Around 20 years ago, he used to date a lady who lived in the Ford Estate named Mavis Thorgould(spelling?). He believes she would be in her 60s now.
He’s wanting any help from the internet sleuths out there who may know a Mavis who used to live or may still live in the Wirral area. With the recent goings on, he’s wanting to get back in touch and make she is safe. He’s been a wonderful neighbor to us these past years and since he doesn’t know technology, we volunteered to help out.
We would like to thank all residents for their continued patience as bin collection crews continue to catch up this week. As announced earlier in the week, they are currently working a day behind schedule.
We also kindly ask all residents to make sure they're following social distancing guidelines to protect collection staff as well as the following:
Make sure all waste is contained in your bin/s with the lid closed. Do not put any waste beside the bin or loose at a collection point. Anyone who feels ill at home (whether diagnosed with COVID-19 or not) should place all their waste in the general rubbish bin, and should double-bag it, making sure the bags are securely tied. They should then wait at least 72 hours before placing it out for collection. This material should not be put in your recycling. Do not come out for a chat with the crews and keep your distance if you are out for your daily exercise. They're nice people, and would probably appreciate a smile and a wave, but we need to adhere to social distancing guidelines of 2 meters. Wirral Council and Biffa take the health and safety of staff very seriously and have been working hard to ensure that additional personal protective equipment (PPE) is available for staff and that procedures have been put in place to enable social distancing as much as possible.
As well as their usual PPE, including gloves, crews have been supplied with soap and water, individual hand sanitiser gel, antibacterial wipes and additional gloves. Procedures have also been put in place to limit the time that crews are all together in the cab, such as loaders being able to start from site, rather than come to the depot at the start and end of shift.
I’m having trouble putting any images up on my posts.

I thought some people may enjoy looking at the animal world while we have to stay in, I followed the eagle nest a few years ago and found it fascinating watching the eggs hatch and finally flee the nest...quite a journey and not without some sadness along the way...enjoy
There are some amazing places in this world, most of which none of us will see in real life , but with the internet we can learn about and view so much more now.
We can go around the world in our own front room, so whilst we are wondering what to do with our own spare time, maybe you will share some of your choices with either photographs or pictures of places and things you find interesting. Where you would like to visit or have visited , historical, modern, mountains and sea, gardens and buildings , monuments and temples. Anything that takes your interest.
Where or what in the world would you like to share ?
I can find Rudgrave Square, Place and Mews, all in Egremont, but no Avenue. My cousin has found an old satchel in her late mother's effects with initials stamped on the outside that we can't match to any ancestors we already know about, and a handwritten address inside that looks like Rudgrave Avenue - it's a bit of a mystery! Does anybody have any ideas on that address? I can't see it on the 6" OS map from 1888-1913 either.

Please, are there any legal eagles who can unpack this newspaper report from 1852. What it seems to say is that the landlord Richard Crafter (an ancestor) of the Derby House (now the Derby Arms) in Rock Ferry has got into financial difficulties and is, I guess, owing both the leasehold owner of the building, and the brewery. But how does this differ from bankruptcy? For, in fact, Richard Crafter was to happily continue as landlord there for another nine years, not only operating the Derby Arms, but also doing mobile catering at events on the race course in Chester.
I would also like to find an old photo of the Derby Arms, if anyone knows of one.

Here's hoping someone can advise me on the following. I recently requested all information held about me at my former employers, their answer was as follows:
Good Afternoon Pete. As Data Controller, I am required to confirm your identity to ensure I am satisfied with your request prior to release of Personal Data. Please can you confirm the following:
Start and end date at xxxxxxxx Ltd. Place of birth Name of person to contact in emergency ( held in Personnel file) Name of last school attended Name of any Collages attended (if at all) Any convictions (If any) I also require a copy of photo ID to be sent.
This seems a little excessive, or, is this a normal response? ( and yes, I dd notice colleges was spelt incorrectly )

It was only a few weeks ago that residents were inconvenienced by Open Reach installing cables everywhere.In my case 5 days of being unable to use my driveway then guess what along come Virgin doing the same thing,digging up the same pavements & more inconvenience made worse by the fact that double yellow lines restrict road parking . Why cant these companies work in conjunction with each other ,is it too much to ask or us it a man thing.
My wife is looking for a newish car and we wandered into a well-known car showroom in New Brighton to see what they had on offer.
Unfortunately, the available cars were outside and speech proved very difficult as an array of loudspeakers was used to fill the area with cheap pop music and inconsequential DJ babble from the local radio bonehead. It was absolutely deafening, and how the neighbours could tolerate this din was hard to believe.
We left, without looking at any of the cars to the bafflement of the young salesman who obviously enjoyed the noise. At one time I might have told him why we left, but I have given up trying to convince such people that everyone doesn't want to shout over the continuous shrieking and bawling.
This morning, New Year's Eve, the 'Positive Thinking' programme at 9.15 - 9.30am was about the regeneration of the Victoria Road area, street art, and interviewed the businessman who bought up empty shops and rented them to small businesses, considered knock-on effects of street art etc. It's interesting to hear some background to what's happened. No mention of Vale Park and the fairy gardens, but it was specifically about the Victoria Road area, so fair enough. The Black Pearl got a mention though. The programme's repeated at 9.30pm - for those of you not already enmeshed in New Year festivities! - and will presumably be available online after that.
Just thought I'd let people know about what happens if an item you buy from 'Banggood' goes astray. This company is a sort of Chinese Amazon and you can buy cheap stuff from Chine if you are prepared to wait a bit.
I bought a power unit from them on 30th November. and was pleased to find that by 7th of December it had made it from the far east to Liverpool where it was 'Manifested for delivery' There it has remained for the whole of December and on contacting Messrs Banggood was told that nothing can be done until 60 days have elapsed since it was ordered, despite being told that delivery would be 20 days!
It is still 'Manifested for delivery' but nobody seems to know where in Liverpool this is, or the identity of the courier.
Whilst not advising people not to buy from this company, be prepared for the runaround if things go wrong. I will certainly avoid them in future. It's probably better to pay a few pounds more on Amazon if they have the same items.
