Found on Saturday wandering down Lansdowne Road/Tollemache Road near Claughton/Bidston a Male tri-colour Cavalier King Charler Spaniel.

He's a well, looked after and v friendly little chap, i'm sure someone is missing him. Think i've seen him being walked past my house but don't know him enough to know his owner.


Does anyone know who he belongs to? Picture attached.

15th Jan 2019 1:54pm When The Light Goes Out [by granny]
There's no 'science' category on Wiki .

What will happen if the light of the moon goes out ?

China's moon mission has seen the first seed sprout. IF scientists want to inhabit the moon, covering it in vegetation would put the light out .

It does say in the good book that darkness will cover the earth. Maybe this is why ? but there's also the tides weather and wildlife that would be affected.

15th Jan 2019 12:46pm West Kirby/ Calday - Water feature/stream!?! [by Stewie]
Hi All - just wondered if anyone can shed light on a 'water feature' noted in old mapping in vicinity of Croome Drive,West Kirby. As you can see from the attach snippet it doesn't seem to be attached to a stream/brook so wondered if anyone would know how/what it is or have any historic photos?

Thanks in advance for any info.

The North West's favourite weather girl, Diane Oxberry, passed away yesterday morning. It seems only like a couple of days since she was doing the weather.
Such a shock and very sad. RIP Diane, you will be missed so much.

10th Jan 2019 11:41pm Recycled Homes [by granny]

We are so behind in the worldwide recycling arena. Admittedly we don't have the odd patch of land to start building, but it could be a project with giving some land for the homeless people who fancy having a go, and to get stuck into.
I'm sure many would enjoy the challenge, if they dropped out, someone else could take over. There are some really great ones.
What do you think ?

6th Jan 2019 12:08pm Epsom salts [by snowhite]
Here is a tip for you fish lovers.

If you see your fish swimming on its side or floating to the top of the tank ,get a a container or a soup mug ,fill it half full with the tank water then add 2 scoops of Epsom salts .Remove the fish from the tank and put it in the container or mug.supervise the fish for at least 1 minute .remove the fish from the container and put it back into the tank.

Do not feed your fish for 1 day .

anyone with pet rabbits i will put another tip on here later .

4th Jan 2019 1:18pm Dont feed this to your dogs [by cools]
Saw this on another forumn. Thought it was important to spread the word.
"Don't feed your dogs food bought from B+M i.e. beef jerky dog treats etc. Apparently injected with something that destroys the kidneys, two dogs had to be put down. Vet has reported it but could take time for stores to clear shelves "
Hope this ok to report on here , as I say just sharing someone's post.

Don't know what to think, it all seems to fall into place as we see things happening from our own perceptive as in Europe, Regional as in planned land banking of green belt , unelected Governments as in EU etc. and NGO's like George Soros . Scary stuff !
I can see the reasoning behind the idea , but can't agree with the intended implications . (if that's the right word) Don't like it .. sounds more straight forward.

31st Dec 2018 2:11pm Floral pavilion promo code? [by TheComputerLab]
Hi,

I have noticed that there is an autism friendly showing in the floral coming up so I thought ‘great, something we can do as a family... finally’

I have just been online to book and it’s £60 for 2 adults and a 7 and a 4 year old (eldest autistic). That seems very steep for a pantomime.

Anyone have any codes to get a discount or have any thoughts on the price structure? Am I being unreasonably?

26th Dec 2018 11:36am On This Day in HIstory [by granny]


26th December 1862

Largest Mass Hanging in US History

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakota_War_of_1862#Execution

Execution[edit]

One of the 39 condemned prisoners was granted a reprieve.[23]:252–259[28] The Army executed the 38 remaining prisoners by hanging on December 26, 1862, in Mankato, Minnesota. It remains the largest mass execution in American history.

The mass execution was performed publicly on a single scaffold platform. After regimental surgeons pronounced the prisoners dead, they were buried en masse in a trench in the sand of the riverbank. Before they were buried, an unknown person nicknamed "Dr. Sheardown" possibly removed some of the prisoners' skin.[29] Small boxes purportedly containing the skin later were sold in Mankato.

At least two Sioux leaders, Little Six and Medicine Bottle, escaped to Canada. They were captured, drugged, and returned to the United States. They were hanged at Fort Snelling in 1865.[30]

Medical aftermath[edit]

Because of the high demand for cadavers for anatomical study, several doctors wanted to obtain the bodies after the execution. The grave was reopened in the night and the bodies were distributed among the doctors, a practice common in the era. William Worrall Mayo received the body of Maȟpiya Akan Nažiŋ (Stands on Clouds), also known as "Cut Nose".

Mayo brought the body of Maȟpiya Akan Nažiŋ to Le Sueur, Minnesota, where he dissected it in the presence of medical colleagues.[31]:77–78 Afterward, he had the skeleton cleaned, dried and varnished. Mayo kept it in an iron kettle in his home office. His sons received their first lessons in osteology based on this skeleton.[31]:167 In the late 20th century, the identifiable remains of Maȟpiya Akan Nažiŋ and other Indians were returned by the Mayo Clinic to a Dakota tribe for reburial per the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.

24th Dec 2018 9:48pm Billy Butler Axed ? [by fish5133]
Radio Merseysides Billy Butler not had his contract renewed and hes not too happy about it.His last show Friday 28th Dec. Have noticed over the last couple of years a slight decline in him (he is 77) but he was IMO still good enough for Radio . Certainly better than one of the guys they have on there in the daytime. . Was on his show quite a few years ago when he was interviewing me about 911 as I had something to do with 911forum.org.uk and the intended speaker couldnt make it from Bristol. He was doing a series on conspiracy theories..
One voice I will miss from the radio

Is there going to be pressure on all companies to make their products automatically Halal , since continuing to provide two different versions may not be financially viable , as we have already seen in the production of meat to schools in some places. We seem to me to be getting swept down a very slippery road.

Came across this the other day. which is really interesting for various medieval history of the area.

On page 21 there is a map of the Priory lands which if you are still around Derek, you might be interested in, as I remember you were looking for information a few years back.

Plenty to read about and enjoy.

Does anyone know of Carr House, or Carr Houses or Carr, near Moreton in the 17th century.

I have not heard of such a locality, but compozz is trying to find a connection to one of his ancestors.

( besides what we have as Carr Farm now, and I'm not sure how old that might be) Carr House Lane, Lydiate , is the nearest I can get.

Im ready to display my sheer ignorance again about anything even vaguely technical -- this time its phones. blush

I presume the advanced call blocking uncorded phones you can get, screen and stop the unwanted calls youve set it for , so you dont even hear the ringing?

If you have a second phone elsewhere in the house , bog standard with no call blocking ability , does that mean youre going to get the unwanted call ringing anyway via that one?

2nd Dec 2018 11:10pm Bollards [by fish5133]
plastic bollard was knocked down around 26th Nov leaving a six inch stump sticking up. A traffic cones was placed over the stump by school caretaker. Some sod nicked the traffic cones during the week. Friday morning it was reported to council as a dangerous trip hazard by several people including myself. I said i would go and level it but was told not to do it as council would sort it. In the afternoon a 65 year old man tripped on it and fell into the road sustaining a serious head injury requiring ambulance (which took 30 minutes to arrive) to take him hospital. I just hope the poor guy is ok and not got broken skull or internal bleeding. It was reported again immediately following the incident as being a dangerous trip hazard and had just caused the injury. Checked on council website and says it will get fixed around 6th Feb 2019..UNLESS Its an Emergency WTF!...Red tape !! Any way 10 seconds with a sledge hammer levelled it. So fricking angry..the sound of the guys head hitting the concrete haunted me..
