POLICE TRACING MOBILE HACKERS OK/POLICE TRACING STOLEN MOBILES NOT OK,


Hi Guys.

Welcome to ‘Old Git‘ Jimbo’s blog @ www.miteamshirts.com my personal e-mail is  james@mits-online.co.uk .

The websites are  www.myteamshirts.co.uk and www.mits-online.co.uk

Checkout our GIZMO page, WISH LIST & FUN RELATED SEXY & RISQUET  t-shirts, & also our 2/3 way team shirts. 

I believe in speaking my mind, regardless of the people or subject.

I don’t hide behind a mask. That is my Fizzog that you can see, so what you see and also read is what you get.

I believe in being contentious because it’s likely to invite a reaction/response.

Rarely do the guilty parties respond. Although when you think about it, their lack of response is sometimes considered as an admission of fault/guilt.

STOLEN MOBILE PHONE

A few days ago my mobile phone was stolen. I reported it to the police. They said they could do nothing about it, but would inform me if it was handed in.

I have a problem with why we can’t get our mobile phones returned.

If rogue reporters can HACK into our phones, then surely the police can MAP the LOCATION of our phones.

I have a SUGGESTION to the POLICE, MOBILE  PHONE COMPANIES & INSURANCE COMPANIES.

FIRSTLY

The Police have a duty to the citizens of the UK.

The mobile companies sell/rent the phones to us.

The Insurance Companies receive/accept our money to cover the loss of our mobile phones.

SECONDLY

The mobile phone business is a MULTI-BILLION pound industry.

I think it’s time that all 3 groups get their heads together and resolve how they can help to return the phones to us.

The Police will say that they have better things to do than tracking a mobile phone.

The Mobile Companies will be wringing their hands with GLEE because it means a HIGHER TURNOVER of phones being purchased/rented.

Presumably the Insurance Companies will gain the most, because they will receive more £££’s from us for  insuring our phones because to own/lease a phone is less than our insurance costs.

THIRDLY

Anyone who has lost or had their mobile phone stolen knows just how demoralising and incovenient it is.

All our contacts have gone. Our pictures of family, friends and special occasions have gone, and in some cases VERY PERSONAL INFORMATION.

I was fortunate that after I contacted my Virgin Media

provider to inform them of my loss I checked my account online and was relieved to find that there hadn’t been any calls made, except for a couple of blank texts’ sent to a friend who happened to be in Tenerife. I saw the transactions online and called him. That is when he told that he had received 2 blank text’s from my mobile phone. It’s a pity the thief/thieves didn’t make a call to one of his/their  friends instead because then I would have had a chance, through the police of tracking him/them down.

If I had been a suspected criminal or terrorist, I’m sure the police would have known of my whereabouts and noticed after a few days that I wasn’t following the usual pattern of activity.

I can just see the scenario of a criminal or terrorists’ phone falling into the hands of a small time mobile phone thief/thieves and the armed Police SWAT squad raiding his/their home at the crack of dawn while still believing him/them to be the terrorist they had been tracking.

He/they would probably be screaming, “IT WASN’T ME GUV“!!!

That would be great because, to you thieve’s  ‘WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND’.

That would be ‘POETIC JUSTICE’.

While on the subject of mobile phones, I am moving house in a weeks time, and my provider is Virgin Media.

The company that Sir Richard Branson bought is a company that has changed ownership and  ‘brand names’ over the years. I have been  loyal to the same company  that he bought for 18 yrs.

I have the full package with Virgin Media which consists of, Broadband, full TV package, landline phone and 2 mobile phones which all cost about £110 per month.

I checked my post code to see if I could have my set up changed/moved to my new address. Unfortunately Virgin Media is not street cabled where I am moving to.

There are about 40 semi-detached and detached properties where I am moving to, and they are all business people who spend a considerable amount of money on similar systems that I have, but not with Virgin Media. I know because I have a few friends who live in the same close.

I recently watched the Parliament channel and the politicians were debating the future access of Broadband etc., into Rural areas. I live in the Town of Chorley and can’t get cable. Chorley has cable, but not where I am moving to.

I am having to arrange for BT to give me the same package that I have had with Virgin Media.

I wonder if Sir Richard is aware of neglected Urban areas that are not street cabled but that BT are.

All they do is run the cables along side BT’s so what’s holding them back? Is it the fact that his staff haven’t the foresight that he has?

I know that Sir Richard has read my blogs so hopefully he’ll read this one and realise that there must be many, many more areas that he doesn’t have cabled.  Having said all that  I sincerely think he is the right man to run the NATIONAL LOTTERY FRANCHISE.  

That’s it for now, so until the next blog, take care and stay healthy.

Before my blog, may I offer my condolences to the family of London marathon runner CLAIRE SQUIRES who collapsed and died at such a young age while running for charity.

Behind every dark cloud there is a silver lining, which is that amazingly through the internet the amount raised by so many generous people has surpassed £430,000 after only 2 days through her ’cause.

This is the website I have found www.justgiving.com . There are a number of related websites from the link, so take your pick and I hope you find what you are seeking if you wish to make a donation.

God bless Claire XXX

TOUR OF TURKEY 3rd day ANTALYA to ELMALI

If you enjoy road cycling then you missed a great piece of individual cycling today which was televised by BRITISH EUROSPORT.

The winner was IVAILO GABROVSKI (Bulgarian). In a race distance of 148k (92.5 miles) he finished in a time of 4 hours-21 minutes in the saddle.

Football whimps where is your comparable fitness?

What a ride and what a climb. He set off by himself from about 6k from the finish and left the rest trailing in his wake.

The terrain and road surface were very uneven and demanding and very narrow. Fortunately there were no punctures because, not only would it have been difficult for the team car to get to the rider to replace his busted wheel but also once the rider has to stop on a very steep climb it is so physically demanding for him to get some start-up speed, especially when the gradient is 10% incline.

The crowds and support along the course and at the finish line were phenomenal.

It just goes to show how popular Professional road cycling is across Europe.

If you don’t have a great interest in the sport then watch it for the sheer beauty of the landscape and scenery along various cycle routes in many countries.

ANTALYA

 Antalya is the capital city of the Antalya Province, located on the Gulf of Antalya on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. The population of the city is 603,190 (2000 census) but reaches up to 2 million in summers at the height of the tourist season. Situated on a steep cliff, Antalya is a picturesque city surrounded by mountains, forests, mediterranean sea and many ancient ruins; with one notable archaeological museum. With its airport it is a gateway for Turkey’s coastal resorts which took the name Turkish Riviera because of the natural and historical beauties of it.

Combining history and culture it deserves the title of “the capital of Turkish tourism“. Today the city of Antalya is reliving a golden age. It has been transformed into a cultural and touristic hub with thematic hotels with concepts like Venice, Topkapý Palace, and cathedrals in Moscow. Kaleici, the rustic old town where historic Turkish and Greek houses are under protection, is the most popular center in Antalya. It is situated between the yacht harbour and the main city. Old houses that are separated by narrow, cobble-stone roads are now hotels and tourism-related shops. Traces of Byzantine, Roman and Seljuks architecture and culture can still be seen. Also Antalya museums house the finds belonging to historic ages of Anatolia.

Inside the city Yivli Minare and Kulliye, Karaalioglu park are places where Ottoman architecture can be seen. Konyaalti and Lara coasts are well known with their crystal clear waters. The prominent sites accessible by daily tours are Side, Perga, Manavgat and Alanya. Ancient cities like Phaselis, Olympos, Adrasan and Kekova can be reached from the sea by Blue voyagers

ELMALI

Elmalı (literally apple-town) is a district as well as its the centre town in Turkey’s Antalya Province. It lies about 35 km inland, at the head of a long upland valley at an altitude that varies between 1050 to 1150 meters from sea level for Elmalı urban center. Throughout history it has suffered the rising and falling fortune of the Lycian region, being ruled respectively by the Persian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman empires.

That’s my blog and hope you found something of interest in it (INNIT)?

JIMBO’S BLOG/FLEETWOOD/CHESTER/CHORLEY/PREMIERSHIP FORECASTS


 

Hi Guys and welcome to my blog @ www.miteamshirts.com and websites www.myteamshirts.co.uk also www.mits-online.co.uk

I hope you don’t just come to read the rantings and winges of this old git, cos’ our website DOES HAVE SO MUCH TO OFFER.

I want to congratulate FLEETWOOD TOWN on their promotion to the FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

Without going into their complete football history (tho historical it has been) they have been Reincarnated (so to speak) 3 times. What a successfull roller coaster the club and ‘fans’ must have been on, and hopefully may the roller coaster continue in an upward direction, so below is some info’ on them.

They really have had a meteoric journey of success.

They must have an excellent management and backup team as well as a great football team, because their’s is not an overnight success story. It’s down to momentum and doing things right throughout the club at all levels.

FLEETWOOD TOWN F.C.

CONFERENCE NATIONAL WINNERS 2011/12

Fleetwood Town Football Club is an English football club based in Fleetwood, Lancashire, on the North West coast of England and played their matches in the Conference National, the fifth tier of English football; they will now play in League Two of the Football League in 2012-13.

It is the first time in the club’s history that it has played in the Football League. They were re-incarnated in 1997 as Fleetwood Town F.C. They were first formed in 1908. Their home strip is red shirts with white sleeves and white shorts. Their home ground is Highbury Stadium in Fleetwood.

CONFERENCE NORTH

 RUNNERS UP (and play-off winners) – 2009–10

The Conference North also known as Blue Square Bet North for sponsorship reasons, is a division of the Football Conference in England, taking its place immediately below the Conference National. Along with Conference South it is at Step 2 of the National League System and the sixth overall tier of the English football league system. It consists of teams located in northern England, the English Midlands and North Wales.

NORTHER PREMIER LEAGUE.

 PREMIER DIVISION CHAMPIONS 2007/08

The Premier Division is the top division of the Northern Premier League. It is at Step 3 (or level 7) of the National League System, placing it six divisions below the Premier League. For sponsorship reasons, it is often referred to as the Evo-Stik League Premier Division.

The league was founded in 1968, as the northern equivalent of the Southern League, being the highest level non-League division below The Football League. In 1979, upon the creation of the Alliance Premier League, it became a feeder league and fell down one ‘level’ in the English football league system. Since then, its prestige has fallen further: there are now two levels between it and the Football League.

The division is at the same level as the Premier Divisions of the Southern League and the Isthmian League. At the end of each season two clubs are promoted to the Conference North: the league champions, and the winners of a play-off competition held between the 2nd through 5th placed clubs. The four lowest placed teams are relegated to the Northern Premier League Division One North or Northern Premier League Division One South, to be replaced by four promoted teams.

In my next blog I will include CHESTER CITY and CHORLEY MAGPIES.

Chester City have just won promotion to the division that Fleetwood have just won, and Chorley (the Town of my birth) are just about hanging on in the ‘play offs’ and look like they may be playing Bradford Park Avenue in one of the Semi-finals.

That’s my blog this time round so, as usual, take care and stay healthy.

‘Old Git’ Jimbo

Conference North was introduced in 2004 as part of a major restructuring of English non-League football. The champions are automatically promoted to Conference National. A second promotion place goes to the winners of play-offs involving the teams finishing in second to fifth place. The winners of the play-offs are also promoted to Conference National. The three bottom clubs are relegated to Step 3 leagues. Teams from this division, as well as from the Conference South, enter the FA Cup at the Second Qualifying Round. On the last day of the 2010–11 season, Eastwood Town set a new record of 19 games unbeaten in the league, passing Southport and Solihull Moors previous joint record of 18 games.[1]

From 2007–08, and for the next three years, it has been known officially as the Blue Square Bet North.

On April 10th 2012, Chester FC were crowned champions of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division and have gained promotion to the Conference North for the 2012-2013 season.

JIMBO’S BLOG/HOW TO AVOID THE SCAMS


Hi Guys

My blog addy as usual is www.miteamshirts.com or send me a personal e-mail to james@mits-online.co.uk and our websites are www.myteamshirts.co.uk and www.mits-online.co.uk

You will be quite surprised at the wide content on our website. CHECK IT OUT WHILE YOU ARE BROWSING.

Here are some RISQUE SCREEN PRINTED SHIRTS for you to see that we have been asked to supply, so we do.

  

Ok on to my blog.

I am quickly discovering from the comments that you send me, that you appreciate and are grateful for much of the content and facts  that I include in some of my blogs.

You have gone on further to say that you have found the facts very helpful and have put some to good use.

Previously I have included the facts, as I see them and have left you to decide what you do with the info.

This time in my blog I am just going to give you some common sense logical points that you should consider before you think about THROWING YOUR MONEY AWAY TO SCAMSTERS (SCUMSTERS).

Common Sense Ideas for Protecting Yourself against Scams

The best way to avoid getting taken in by a scam is to take heed of the age-old saying: “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is“. A free lunch sounds great, but not when it ends up costing you 100 times the cost of a regular lunch. Many of the internet scams resolve around a few common concepts. By learning to recognize them you can easily avoid many scams.

  1. Earnings, wages, commissions, winnings, that are excessive.
  2. Getting something you never asked for; ie: winning a lottery you never entered, getting a job you never interviewed for, etc.
  3. Getting involved in an “easy” business that you have no background in that offers high profits.
  4. Receiving payments of any kind and returning part of them by Western Union, Wire Transfer etc.
  5. Purchasing something from a far-away country at a price that is very low.

The key element in all of these is that you believe you will make some quick easy money. In the end you will lose lots of time and money and receive nothing in exchange.

Use a little common sense, and keep in mind that the scammers try their scams on many people and can easily develop the skills to manipulate you into trusting them.

A few quick examples.

Promise of jobs abroad

Ask someone in the USA if they want a job for US$ 120,000 abroad  and how easy it is to get. I bet you’ll find a lot of people that want just a job and there are very few such jobs.

Do you really think you can get such a job in Africa without even completing an interview? Use some common sense and you’ll save the money you’re about to send for the visa processing fees. Yes, you’ll be told it will be completely refunded. The truth is there is no refund and if you pay that there will probably be another fee… and another one… until you run out of money or stop paying.

Do you really think it is common for a nanny to earn US$500 a week… or that nannies in the USA are paid in British Pounds? Same scam, you’ll be asked to contact a travel agency to arrange for your trip… whatever you pay is lost money. I got accepted as nanny just by emailing and not providing any qualifications. Think!

Animal sob stories

Do you really think someone is going to ship a pet from Africa for a couple hundred dollars? They may claim to be religious and have a sob story about the animal, but aside from the actual customs regulations in your country if you were to receive an animal, they will play on your emotions to extract all kinds of fees as the animal is supposedly being transported to you. Of course the sellers don’t have any animals, just a few photos and heart wrenching words.

Accepting scam payments

There are many excuses to send you a cheque, from buying something to processing payments for someone abroad. The essence of this scam is to overpay you for something or trick you into thinking you can earn a nice commission processing payments. A few weeks or months after you deposit the cheques, they will bounce (forged cheques) and you’ll be out the bank fees, and whatever cash you forwarded to the scammers and you might even get hassled by the police too!

Deposit Accounts

Another thing to watch out for is someone from overseas that is looking for you to purchase products on your credit card (or theirs) and then reship the merchandise to them. If you use your credit card you can be sure you’ll never actually get paid (see above about forged cheques). If you use their credit card you can pretty much bet on it being a stolen card. Either way, you’re going to be out the cost of the merchandise and the overseas shipping. I won’t even get into the hassles you open yourself up to if the stuff wasn’t bought with your credit card.

These are just a few pointers to look out for and to consider before you PAY FOR THE FREE LUNCH.

That’s it for another blog so take care and stay healthy

BARCLAYS PREMIERSHIP/BLACKBURN ROVERS v LIVERPOOL AT EWOOD PARK

Hiya Guys

Before my blog I just want to let Preston    and Blackpool  fans know that we now have their new 2/3 way HOME and AWAY shirts in stock including the red England shirt on the inside and will have photos soon.

Just a few words about the history of my home club Blackburn Rovers and their opponents Liverpool F C.

Blackburn Rovers Football Club  is an English professional association football club based in the town of Blackburn, Lancashire. The team currently competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football Tho languishing in the bottom 3 before this evening game.

The club was established in 1875, becoming a founding member of The Football League in 1888.

They are one of only three clubs to have been both a founder member of the Football League and the Premier League (the others being Aston Villa and Everton).

In 1890 Rovers moved to its permanent home at Ewood Park.

Prior to the formation of the Premier League in 1992, most of the club’s successes were before 1930, when it had gained league and FA Cup trophies on several occasions. Relegation in 1966 was followed by 26 successive seasons of football outside the top flight.

In 1992, Blackburn were promoted to the new Premier League a year after being taken over by local steel baron Jack Walker, who installed Kenny Dalglish as manager.

In 1995, Blackburn became league champions, having spent millions of pounds on players like Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton. However, the title-winning team was quickly split up and, in 1999, the club was relegated.  They were promoted back to the Premier League two years later, just after Jack ‘Uncle Jack’ Walker’s death, and have been in the top flight ever since. During that time they  qualified for the UEFA Cup four times: once as League Cup winners, twice as the Premier League’s sixth-placed team and once via the Intertoto Cup. The 2009–10 season marked the club’s 70th nonconsecutive year in the top flight.

Blackburn are currently one of only four clubs to have won the Premier League, along with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United. The club’s Latin motto is “Arte et labore”, the club’s translation of which is “By Skill & Hard Work”. Coincidentally my old school (St Augustine’s, Chorley) motto was the same.

Liverpool Football Club is  an English Premier League football club based in Liverpool, Merseyside. Liverpool has won 18 League titles, the second most in English football, as well as seven FA Cups and a record eight League Cups. Liverpool has also won more European titles than any other English club, with five European Cups, three UEFA Cups and three UEFA Super Cups.

Liverpool was founded in 1892 and admitted into the Football League the following year. The club has played at its home ground, Anfield, since its founding, and the team has played in an all-red home strip since 1964. The most successful period in Liverpool’s history was the 1970s and ’80s, when the club won numerous honours both domestically and in Europe.

The club’s supporters have been involved in two major tragedies. The first was the Heysel Stadium disaster in 1985, in which charging Liverpool fans caused a wall to collapse, killing 39 Juventus supporters. In the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, 96 Liverpool supporters lost their lives due to a crush against perimeter fencing.

Liverpool has long-standing rivalries with city neighbours Everton and with Manchester United. The club’s anthem is “You’ll Never Walk Alone“.

Incidentally the anthem originates from the musical ‘Carousel’ and was sung by Mario Lanza.

I hope it’s a good game and we can move out of the ‘BOTTOM THREE’.

While typing this blog Liverpool have just scored 2 goals inside 2 minutes. BAD NEWS.

Take care
