parking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 23-Jun-2017
Don`t know what the problem is, you can park anywhere but most favour on yellow lines. Any where around the TSB and outside Thomas` bakers is good as well   
  • Re: parking by early doors (Member 10235862) on 23-Jun-2017
    I spoke to one of our younger councillors who told me that the traffic wardens issued 55 tickets one month - and he seemed quite proud of that. I could do 55 a day . Lack of enforcement, people park anywhere ,nobody gives a fuck.

  • Re: parking by zap (Member 10216554) on 25-Jun-2017
    Piffling amount when you consider that most of those 55 will be issued to over-stayers on legit car parks.saw a van yesterday parked on King St outside that junk shop half on/half off the pavement. A blueworks bus had a helluva job getting past.

  • Re: parking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 25-Jun-2017
    The selfishness of some drivers knows no bounds. Remember that woman that blocked King street with her car while she went to get her hair done? When I lived up on the reservation it never ceased to amaze me when drivers pulled up across driveways and parked there despite the street being empty. They would then proceed to walk to the house they were visiting, usually a good distance away.

  • Re: parking by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Jun-2017
    zap ,the car parks are still SLDC territory. CCC do the streets but only turn up a few hours a week.
    I'm not in favour of over-zealous traffic wardens but Ulverston needs a blitz to get people onside. The town really needs it's own dedicated warden.

  • Re: parking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 25-Jun-2017
    The guy that owns the flower shop persistently parks all day in a restricted area, he gets fined now and again but just shrugs it off, cheap parking as far as he is concerned. Should be clamped or towed away.

So then, not the evening liar any more, just the liar. Different day, same old shit.

croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 16-Jun-2017
What sort of chemicals, and which house?   
  • Re: croftlands acid house? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 16-Jun-2017
    Bungalow in Weston Avenue near corner jefferson Drive is all we know.

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by zap (Member 10216554) on 16-Jun-2017
    Eh?

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Jun-2017
    It`s no good Zap, you are just going to have to look on the liar website to keep up, no a pleasant prospect I know, but it has to be done in the name of information acquisition.

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-Jun-2017
    Can't seem to navigate around said website today . Has it been encrypted or summat ?

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Jun-2017
    It`s all accessible on my laptop, the only annoyance is the begging letter that pops up requesting donations to a rich press baron. Anyhoo, a house on Weston Ave. has been found to have large amounts of chemicals in it, the chemicals required to make drugs apparently so the police from Manchester (naturally) have been summoned to remove the hazardous stuff. (so they can make their own drugs?)

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Jun-2017
    P.S. There`s a bit about it on the Wezzie Gazette website as well. (mebbe you have been blocked as an undesirable !)

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-Jun-2017
    the Mail home page seems to load differently now ,I can use it on IE but not on Chrome . Used to be the other way round. Gazette no problem.

    Haha, he nearly blew himself up. Reminds me of my attempt to produce, er, substances in the kitchen long long ago. Mixing various crystals and dissolving them in a solvent over the kitchen stove, then evaporating off the solvent to finish up with product A. The solvent was acetone. Dunno why it didn`t end in tears.

going deaf by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 5-Jun-2017
So, would you sell your boat while you still could and pay for treatment or expect others to donate via a crowdfunding event?   
  • Re: going deaf by ilikeeatingthings (Member 10161876) on 5-Jun-2017
    Can the NHS not fund it?

  • Re: going deaf by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 13-Jun-2017
    I wouldn`t have thought either the implants or a state of the art high tech hearing aid would be available on the nhs, and he knows it, hence the funding appeal.

the spours crew by blueherring (Member 10198877) on 2-Jun-2017
heard that some of ralph spours' cocktail crew started trouble in town and got put on barwatch. and that chattaway has been serving said barwatch ruffians. naughty naughty. can't have one rule for your mates and another for everyone else and still claim to be a respectable business owner.   
  • Re: the spours crew by early doors (Member 10235862) on 2-Jun-2017
    Who gives a shit ? No idea who these cocktail crew are anyway.

  • Re: the spours crew by blueherring (Member 10198877) on 3-Jun-2017
    other pub owners who are part of barwatch and don't serve their own banned mates because they respect the scheme? seems like a dick move to me.

  • Re: the spours crew by early doors (Member 10235862) on 3-Jun-2017
    yes BH I was being flippant of course . But it's up to the publicans to sort it out themselves. I no longer get involved in pub arguments and I really don't give a shit anymore. Cheers !

General erection by zap (Member 10216554) on 28-May-2017
As I wandered around the leafy suburbs and up the Left Bank of our quirk laden town I noted the proliferation of "Vote Labour" posters. One wonders is this a sign of the Polenta Socialists guilt at being able to afford their villas and cottages whilst nurses on a mere £20000 are allegedly having to use food banks? No hand knitted pomegranate pearls for them! Quirky indeed.   
  • Re: General erection by early doors (Member 10235862) on 29-May-2017
    Sounds like you've been to Corbynville.

    Thats true...the Gill and area. Little Islington, in more ways than one.

  • Re: General erection by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 29-May-2017
    Went up there today, I see what you mean, it`s a wonder the factory shop is tolerated up there.

  • Re: General erection by early doors (Member 10235862) on 30-May-2017
    I don't tolerate the Factory Shop myself. Most ignorant ,useless ,hostile staff I've ever met. Went to pick up a large item for my neighbour ,had the receipt etc. - I don't know nowt about it one said. Took 30 minutes of arguing to get the parcel. Rant over !!

blocked drain by early doors (Member 10235862) on 23-May-2017
Was it you zap who had blocked drain last year ? I noted the name and number . Can you recall what they charge ?
  
  • Re: blocked drain by zap (Member 10216554) on 24-May-2017
    Aye it were my drains. Offhand I seem to recall he charged me about £40. I remember thinking it was v reasonable anyway.

  • Re: blocked drain by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-May-2017
    Aye thanks but he's quoted me £65 today. Got to be done tho.

  • Re: blocked drain by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 24-May-2017
    He ( Christian) is worth every penny. He not only unblocked the drain but took it upon himself to visit the person who had caused the blockage and told him, in no uncertain terms, if he did it again he would report him to the environmental health authorities. (Cheapskate trying to flush commercial waste down domestic drains).

  • Re: blocked drain by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-May-2017
    I've isolated the problem but can't shift it so he's coming tomorrow. Sounds very professional on the phone.

    They're all part of scumbrian newspapers. Which is why the rag has so many stories from Penrith, Carlisle etc. If it weren't for them and adverts there'd be no liar! I think at best they ought to go weekly. Then move to carlisle.

Anyone have a rough idea how much they are? Just for example, if I sold a house for 175k and then bought another for 175k (so no profit on the transaction) how much, roughly, would solicitors fees and estate agents fees be?   
  • Re: reposted thanks to you know who hijacking by early doors (Member 10235862) on 19-May-2017
    not having moved for many years I'm a little out of touch but here goes. You pay estate agent fees when you sell say 1.5% =£1750. Stamp Duty when you buy at £175,000 is £1000. Legal fees I would guess £2,000 buy and sell ,try and be nice to your solicitor especially if you're an established client.
    The fact you're not making a profit is irrelevant.

  • Re: reposted thanks to you know who hijacking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 20-May-2017
    Ah, thanks for that ED, it`s a lot of money just to secure somewhere to park a car but the situation in the town centre is pretty dire, get home much after six o clock and you have to park streets away. A nice lile semi somewhere up on Croftlands seems the answer.

  • Re: reposted thanks to you know who hijacking by zap (Member 10216554) on 20-May-2017
    I bought and sold for a lot less than that 2 years ago. Solicitors fees were £1300.these days a lot of solicitors do conveyancing packages...you pay around a grand for the whole caboodle. Worth shopping around.

    Can't you befriend an old lady in Well Head or somewhere that has allocated parking . Bung her £500 pa to say it's her car ? Taps nose.

  • Re: reposted thanks to you know who hijacking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 20-May-2017
    Allocated parking, now there`s a thing. Me own space right outside me front door. Have to mention it to the council, it could be a nice little earner for them. The problem (as I see it) is created by multi car owning families living in a terraced house that only has space for one car in front of it. Perhaps it`s them that should sod orf up to Croftlands.
