Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

 

Thanks

Dave

Calgary's where I am. It's one of the places where there are still a lot of jobs going (despite the recession). They seem to always be in need of teachers here - I know a few that have just moved from Eastern Canada to get work here.

 

There's something not right about a post from the sex that doesn't include a picture of some bint with a finger in her arse.

If you think you can just fuck off now and leave me holding the Mother - you are sadly mistaken.. I will grass you up faster than you can crack one out you selfish bastard...the guilt trip alone will be enough to keep you here and thats before we even cross the nagging about seeing the grand kids bridge!!!

 

You are free to bugger off providing that you make provision in your hand luggage for y'mum.

But you could come and visit. Canada has some interesting and huge erections such as the Calgary Tower and the CN Tower.

what website did you get on noos to check your points.

 

I think this is the questionnaire, Bri:

 

To be accepted in Canada's Skilled Worker programme, you need to:

 

* Have at least one year of full-time, paid, work experience within the last 10 years. Most skilled occupations meet the requirements for this.

* Prove you have sufficient funds to maintain your family for six months after arriving in Canada.

*

o For example, if there are two of you, the Canadian government says you will need $12,659.

o If there are four of you, you will need $18,895.

o A family of six will need $24,170.

o You do not have to prove you have these funds if you have arranged employment in Canada.

* Pass the points test. You pass the points test if you receive 67 or more points.

 

Points are awarded as follows:

Wow it look's truly astounding. I will go there one day for a wile. I speak to many people from Canada and they say it's a great place and it's always easy to find work. I think I would try a holliday before actually moving there though. But saying that I am moving to china without checking it out first ha ha.

i have become somewhat of a hermit to many of my friends since we moved out of vancouver.

 

the fact is that i usually have the wife make me a nice breakfast while i am watching the match. it is very comfortable and warm, i must admit. drinking massive quantities of lager in the morning in a pub doesn't have the same appeal, sorry. i will try harder for the next big final.

 

i used to be a ginger in my youth. my hair went grey in my 20's, and then rapidly disappeared in my 30's. you would never know....

we have some pretty strict rules about spelling and grammar here, simon - not sure you'd fit in.

 

maybe try quebec - they speak a bastardized version of french there.

I am over here now working in Crowsnest. The people are sound and love a beer, the speed limits are far to low for my liking, definitely a country I could see myself living in though.

 

And I thought I was the only poet round here
