They want to do a drug sweep at Hilbre School. Really strong smell of pot as they were congregating to go into school in the morning. Smell had disappeared after they had gone in. Thought at first it was a local house growing the stuff.

Makes me even crosser than hunting because of the numbers involved -


And the myth that its better for female cats and dogs to have one litter. Its simply not true, all the behavioural advantages of getting them spayed/neutered work even better the sooner they are done, likewise for the considerable reduced risk of cancer.

The RSPCA can't do right for doing right, the media are permanently on the attack, if they reduce the fox hunting prosecutions to appease the media then they will be lambasted for that as well. In reality the prosecutions do not cost them a huge amount of money because most are successful and they get awarded costs, but that doesn't make good press does it!

Happy Al's have a decent range. I went to a wedding where they got a nice coach from happy al's from wallasey to thronton hall and i believe it was reasonably priced.

Was a nice interior as well, comfortable and spacious.

Yes, unlike coins, banknotes are a warrant issued by the relevant bank and so cannot expire despite no longer being legal tender.

By coincidence I came across this today:

Peel reckons there is no chance of Liverpool Waters going ahead as originally planned. Not that this is any surprise. The initial ideas shown in the glamorous pics an videos are intended to draw in the punters rather than to give any real idea of the reality behind it.

Can someone advise on what this problem maybe. The passenger door wont open from outside or inside and not even with the fob.
I have managed to take the door card off and can see that there is a cable that has come away and needs to be hooked to the actuator. Is this an easy fix, can some give me a price to do this job or advise on a decent mechanic that will?

kids only get upset when they see themselves as being in very different situations to their peers . Maybe now , there are so many mixes of relationships plus male housekeepers and male nannies etc , that hardly anything is that unusual any more , so as long as their 2 parents are good loving ones, perhaps they wouldnt even blink.

Does strike me though that looking back trying to puzzle out family history in the far future is going to be a lot more challenging !!!

These are YOUR words and they are totally untrue. The most that can be said is that SOME people in SOME countries want out.


How can you say that my statement is "totally untrue" then go on to agree with what I said, I'm obviously missing your point?

"queue" implies more than one, I did not say "all" nor even "many".

IMHO, Poland would seriously consider leaving if it wasn't for the financial bribe. Greece would leave if they hadn't been taken over financially. Italy, maybe Spain, maybe France are somewhere around 50/50 but each have complex issues. Then there are Denmark, Sweden, Czechoslovakia and Hungary who aren't very happy with a number of issues. If Brexit succeeds then Ireland may find itself having to leave which is another reason the EU are appearing very awkward on the Brexit deal.

Of course countries want to join, the first thing that happens is loads of money gets thrown their way BUT the EU is running out of money to give away and Brexit will hit this badly. If the EU take on more countries they will no longer be able to pay the Polish bribe and Poland will leave, they will also have a problem bailing out Greece again and may have to forfeit Greece on favourable terms.

No doubt there are penalty clauses in the contract but if you try to enforce them then the contractor hits back on the "extra" charges:- work carried out that wasn't covered by the original contract. Many contracts are qoted at cost (or even a loss) to get the competitive edge but the contractor knows that there will be extras to make his profit from, unplanned work usually having a premium charge.

This practice was prevalent when public departments found a "cosy" contractor that they preferred to deal with which sometimes helped them use money from different budgets or different budget years. No idea if the above is still practiced but I can't see it having died out completely.

The streetworks overrun charges were to stop the practice of many utility companies digging holes then going on and doing other work sometimes leaving disruption behind them for many months.
