    Build Websites that Work!
  1. Hi Having given up raising Koi carp a few years back in a small deep pond in the garden I decided to throw in a few Shubunkins, yellow and red goldfish and leave them to their own devices. Well after a shaky start about two years ago I started finding young black goldfish which as they grew I expected them to turn yellow or gold. No they said we are staying black so you can’t see us! When the Sun is out you can see about three generations of black goldfish sunbathing in the margins. I have a few other youngsters but they have gone white! The old koi filtration system takes care of the ammonia suggestion. Any ideas
  2. Hi If you have not heard of a man shed before have a look here at the UK Mans Sheds Association which will explain. I am trying to get a few like minded people with time on their hands to form a Man Shed on the land of the PeakParkCC, the website still in the build but will give you a taste of the sort of things to be involved with and where it is located. If I can get enough interest I will arrange a meeting on the land to discuss my vision and your ideas and the best way forward for the shed. I intend to make the caravan the HQ and one of the stables the workshop and tool store. Thanks for looking Cheers Mark
  3. Can anybody recommend a garage door man to service and adjust/repair my electric roller door without wanting an arm and a leg? Cheers
  4. There must be loads of people driving around Sheffield in large diesel vehicles with a tow bar that would love a trip to Margate with me as a passenger to pick up a large box trailer for a full tank of diesel and a few quid in their hand. I have just bought the trailer but the guy will not wait for my car to be ready next week and insists it is collected this week! any ideas or offers?
  5. What has happened to the entrepreneur caterers
  6. Hi Tony012 First read about Rosalind Gardner. You could also watch her video about affiliate marketing Ros has made a fortune this way and it will save you a lot of time and effort trying to compete with the big dating sites. Just read, learn and copy her methods with your spin. Cheers
  7. Thanks Pintor Allpac Exports are quoting me for packaging and transport Cheers
  8. I have to get a Honda ST70 weighing Approx. 65Kg to Baden 35 minutes outside Zurich. Any ideas
  9. Hi Caterers Some time back in February I opened a post HERE looking for a person or persons with catering experience and knowledge to contact me to discuss ideas for a project in the Hope Valley. I had plenty of replies from people with comments but nobody with personal experience of the trade. We at the Peak Park Conservation Centre intend to open up to passing foot bashers and pedal pushers in April next year and think it would benefit them and us if we could offer some form of refreshments other than cold water from the tap. I am building a new website for the Peak Park Conservation Centre and hope somebody with knowledge of catering will see from it the potential to develop trade and make contact to discuss ideas Cheers
  10. Steve & Dave I apologise for the delay in contacting you both by pm, but have not been well since my Easter holiday. I hope to contact you both for a meeting on site this weekend on either Sat or Sun morning. Please pm me if you are available for either or both. Cheers
  11. Thank you all for your comments. After a lot of searching and looking at your ideas I have chosen TSOhost. I took a months trial with them in early February. They answered all my questions clearly so even an old man like me could understand what they said! The have both cPanel and their own clustered host panel. The clincher for me was their free migration of websites to their servers. Having moved websites before, this service saved me 3 days of mucking about! Their upload times are good and their prices competitive Cheers MailBottle
  12. I am looking for a local photographer(s) who live in or close to the Hope Valley. They need to have a passion for wildlife photography and the patience of Jove. My wife, speaking to such a person at the weekend taking pictures of a Kingfisher in Endcliffe Park, gave me the idea. I am regenerating The Peak Park Conservation Centre website and am looking for local photographers, like the Kingfisher person, with a similar passion to photograph wildlife. For example, the PeakParkCC has Swallows that nest in the stable block each year and are due to arrive in the next couple of weeks. Idea, their life cycle from arrival, repairing or building nests, laying eggs, chicks, watching them grow until they leave heading south. We have a large Badger set at the bottom of one of the fields. There are Pheasants on the land (feathered versions)! We have rabbits and even a family of hares nested in a pile of hay one year. If you have passion to photograph any of the above or ideas and want a page like this I did here on the Ash tree, dedicated to you and your photographs taken at The Peak Park Conservation Centre with links to your website or media page free in return for your efforts, please PM me. This way we can both benifit from our efforts! Cheers
  13. I have an idea to cater for walkers, cyclists and others using their own power to visit the Hope Valley at weekends and holidays. I have some land within walking distance of Bamford railway station. The land has walkers and cyclists passing close on one side with a public footpath and on another side with a lane. It has stunning views of the valley and would be in my opinion make an ideal stopping off spot to relax for a cuppa and a bite to eat before continuing to explore. I have the location, but need somebody with catering experience that would like to discuss the possibilities. Cheers
  14. Hi I agree with Marx, like most things in life you have to have a plan. Try to lay your pages that you think you need out in a layout a bit like a storyboard or family tree. You know your business and what you have to offer. You should know what your client base are looking for. Any website builder/designer will need your help to understand where you are coming from and going to for that matter! If you are a small business I strongly recommend you consider a DIY approach to building a website, as you will learn so much and keep control. As a retired business consultant and builder of my own websites if you wanted to chat through your ideas before taking the plunge please feel free to make contact. Cheers
