A person who engages in homosexual activity, for example, may define themselves as gay whilst others may define them as poofs and ponces - a successful outcome for those concerned is when others have come to refer to you by your achieved status. The alternative strategy is to take ownership of the term that others define you by as with blacks and the word n!gger (no longer seen as acceptable to be used by whites).

    Personally I don't like the use of labels at all as the tend to define a person by only one aspect of themselves.

    Personally what people do in the privacy of their own homes is no business of mine.

    Let's get this topic back on track and no more talk of gayness.

    You'd be amazed at how times I've been told I'am Gay! To be honest, I thought it was a Northumbrian thing rather than a national slang word (haven't heard it since I moved)

    I should ride up there sometime.

    It's only up the road from the boxing gym, so it wouldn't take that long to get there.

    That was the Soho Arms.

    I think it may actually have been the Soho Arms. Never mind it was a lot of years ago - but if you're out there somewhere Silvia, I haven't forgotten.

    The Pontack's a detective agency now. I attended a ceremony there in Feb 2005 to unveil the new plaque (the previous one was stolen!) commemorating the history of Liverpool's Little Italy.
    I done a set of pics for The Friends of Liverpool Monuments. Here's a couple of them. Sebo's in one of the pics yet again!

    Affordable homes planned as eco-housing scheme gets under way
    Sep 20 2006
    Daily Post

    WORK is well under way by Liverpool builder Rok at phase one of Everton's first eco-housing scheme.

    The 5.7m development, Greenbrow, is being built for client Aldbury Housing on an area of disused wasteland along Everton Brow, which once completed, will offer affordable homes ranging from one-bedroom apartments to three-bedroom town houses.

    Greenbrow has been designed around a courtyard setting, with landscaped areas and secure parking. Phase one consists of 54 new homes, with a further 102 homes to be created in following phases. The development is set for completion in April 2007, when further construction will begin.

    Among its green credentials are the use of timber as a primary material, high levels of insulation, low energy lighting and rainwater harvesting.

    Martin Ormston, Rok area leader, said: "This is an important development that will bring quality and affordable housing to the local area.

    "Much attention has been paid to detail, with the aim of incorporating long-lasting benefits to both the environment and the community."

    I can walk to Everton park from here - up Breck rd and over the hill. I hardly ever go there tho' .. perhaps at new year to watch the fireworks.

    Like everything else - you sometimes ignore what's on your doorstep.
    I can't fail to notice the fantastic view though, I see it every time I'm on the 14c bus going into town - I always look over to the Welsh hills on a clear day.

    I have only just started taking the odd holiday since the kids have grown up and left home. It is visiting other cities abroad that has prompted me to really look at this city that I have spent nearly all my life in (but taken for granted).

    After I moved abroad and returned for a visit, I realised how much we take for granted.

    Yes! I've had the same experiance! Once I was on the bus going along Everton Ridge; the sun was low in the sky as it was getting a little late. We were just drawing level with the Radio City Tower and thne the most amazing thing happened. We were level with the city tower for a split second, and in that split second, the sun was sat ontop of it. It looked like the City Tower was a beacon of light casting warm, bright rays across the city. It was just so amazing for one split second!

    Might sound like a load of what do you call it's but it did happen! And it was just an amazing sight to marvel too!

    There are fantastic views from there. It's amazing how much you can see of the Welsh mountains on a good clear day.
    Years ago my cousin lived in St George's Heights (on the hill). He lived on the 19th floor facing towards the river - can you imagine the fantastic view from the 19th floor AND the building already perched in a lofty position.

    Yeh, let's have more pics on the forum of the city from the side we see it from - from Everton Brow, Low Hill, etc. rather than from the river.

    I used to live where Everton Park is now, and remember being able to see the fair all lit up in New Brighton many years ago.
    My brother also lived in St Georges Hts on 17th floor, his views on a clear day were from Speke airport to Giro in Bootle.
    When I used to visit him the binoculars came out and you could even see the traffic on the other side of the river.
    All gone now of course.

    Here's a few from the top of Corinth Tower on Netherfield Road. Taken about 4 years ago. Admin/Mods, any chance of adjusting the thread title to "Everton Brow Views"

    Here's a couple of rare views OF Everton Brow taken from the north. Sadly the big white block of flats in one of the pics has gone. I used to love taking pics from it's roof.
