Hi Bultaco, its a European Pterodactyl, they’re not usually dangerous unless you make them angry but it would be safer to keep any pets inside the house until it’s gone. Hope this helps.

Slightly off topic, but I came across evidence of a the locks on the Weaver navigation canal being operated by water turbines - Pelton wheels I was later told.

I've not bothered to look into it further than a quick Google, but seems to confirm this. How they worked is probably carefully documented somewhere. Has anyone taken teh trouble to dig it out?

What have you heard Ste?
Gun found by the kids or the kids had a gun?

Edit:
Kids found a gun and ammo.
Well done to the kids for reporting it.

Thanks diggingdeeper - Good idea about posting the link to his flat.

philmch - I hear what you're saying about Viv Stanshall; a very interesting analogy. Top hat and a rolled up carpet over the shoulder - sounds like a good look.

At the rate that pubs are closing I can't see a problem of finding one. Especially now, because of the aftermath of covid.
Good luck.

If you still have the maps Gibbo, post them up please. wink

Looking through old threads and come across this.
So much changes that you rarely notice until you look at the old pictures.
Great old and new pics Derek, cheers. Pity the flats are knocked down and unable to take some now, haha!
Any more along these lines Derek? wink

Another desperate plea from the people of Syria who live on the ground there and in amongst the deplorable conditions being thrust upon them.

Is there anyone who has the courage to speak up for these people ? I doubt it, because there are too many cowards in this country, frightened of being black listed due to propaganda that has been fed to and swallowed by the British public.

No MP raises the Syrian crisis , ever. Has any one of them even heard of the Caesar Act ? Has any member of the public heard about the Caesar Act that was implemented last week ?

And yet again ,this will fall on deaf ears and hidden under the carpet in the hope the truth will go away. We call ourselves humanitarians.. what a bloody joke !

The White Helmets constantly financed and supported because it was Jo Cox Foundation that partly funded them. No one would wish to destroy a foundation that was set up in memory of someone who so tragically died, and her good intentions were misguided, but many more have tragically died due to the continual financial support for White Helmets .

A message from Father Daniel.

Good news indeed, whats happened to the 40 new hospitals Johnson promised? enough funding for upgrades to six, yet we have him promising more money to build and repair schools? if lies were promises we would be amongst the finest countries in the world, the CONservatives were indeed aptly named.

Yep, typical apologists. They're now playing the "he's from Scarisbrick not Liverpool so not a true local" card.

They're even sharing a photo online of a guy in an Everton top who looked a little like him.

It was the same a few years ago when someone made monkey gestures and noises at a match. The defenders had the cheek to say a rival fan had got into the home section and was doing it.

Looks like the center of a VW hub cap, (Jetta) when you have work done on the wheels/tire's, they don't pop them on properly. My son lost two off his car the day after they had done a tire job. I went to buy two from the VW dealer and they cost $20.00 each over here
