Only those who never wondered where the ferry across the Mersey was actually going.
ive just learned something how stupid of me not to realise were the ferry went....i just googled. i have only been to Liverpool twice, once when i was 13 then a couple of years ago to do a day course at the Uni, couldnt find a parking space so went home

on the google map wirral looks more rural in Hickys defence

A lot of it is, but not so much where Hicky lives. And it is RIGHT next to Liverpool.

There are lots of ferry cruises going all over the place and they have bands and comedians on in the evenings and you can go down to Salford quays but if we talk about "The ferry" it means the one you nip over to Birkenhead on.
It used to be that if you didn't get off you didn't have to pay, and we used to stay on for hours when i was little.

We call Salford Quays shopping centre "hell" because they always have the heating on full blast. There are some really good shops though if you can get round them without wilting.

You should say "Birkenhead, home of Paul O' Grady" and everyone would know where you meant.
When you are in Malaya/Singapore in a camp with 500 fellers don't think that would tell them much.)))))))))))

:-rolleyes: Even I know the Wirral is 'by' Liverpool. I doubt there are many people who don't know that.
But you are so well informed, unlike 99% of the world.))))))))

Hicky, you do know that New Brighton has a cinema dont you? i am sure this must be less than five miles from you.
http://www.lightcinemas.co.uk/en.aspx
Bromborough and Birkenhead also have cinemas.
Do they, I know Birkenhead & Bromborough do but it's not what i call local.

Only those who never wondered where the ferry across the Mersey was actually going.
Everyone still wonders where it goes.

I didn't even know it went to Birmingham.

Parking is easier now but you have to use a multi story car park.

It is total Rural Janet, don't believe Honey she's just so jealous.

You are so funny, the houses in a City don't have massive trees outside their doorway.

A cheap day out.)))))))))))

Good Evening

Had a lovely walk, too hilly for me to run.All the runners came back scratched to pieces after running through a thorny patch...
We had a lovely meal after, especially as my friend Lauren was visiting.She was posted to Switzerland several months ago, though her husband still has 18 months to finish on his contract, here, and I have missed her, but probably not as much as he has.

It was sunny with a chill in the air.We ate inside the Taverna where there was a roaring log fire and we had village sausage, pork chops, beef patties and many types of salad and dips.

Rupert was allowed to sleep where he wanted last night and we all got some sleep, at last!
He is currently asleep and is lying close to Miss Blossom Mootle who is very maternal.

Is that a brief case, or glasses case?.-)))))))))

If i don't say the Wirral is by Liverpool those living down souf wouldn't have a clue were it was.
It's just a marker, like in the military, if i didn't mention Liverpool they thought i came from a foreign country.
I know where both the Wirral AND Birkenhead are and I am just a colonial hick.

You can go to Birmingham too for the price of a bottle of baileys and a bucks fizz.

Third best in the north west ner ner ner ner.
If it was totally rural you wouldn't need a park!

.
You never been down Princes road? Or Falkner square? or in London, Grosvenor square and the whole of Belgravia?

They must be secret farmyards. No wonder he needs the 4x4 with super duper tyres if he's driving through silage!

Oh my goodness. On songs of praise they have someone murdering "the lord's my shepherd with an R&B version. It reminds me of Michelle BB5 singing Pie Jesus. but its worse.

It sounds lovely apart from the thorns. Is Sam a runner?

Yes, he is, though he terms himself a 'lumberer' rather than a gazelle...

I can't remember if it was someone from here who wanted to see the scary owls in situ?
Anyway, managed to grab a photo of them.
The things that look like grubby curtains at the windows, are bug screens on the outside - they don't photograph well...

Yes, we have mosquitos all year.They are not as plentiful when it is freezing but if the sun comes out, even in the cold weather, so do the mozzies.
