I was born in Brummieland. We lived next to a park. There was only the odd flasher there.


Actually it was a lovely little park with a stone fountain. Ants lived inbetween the stones and I was fascinated by the little fuckers.

Think its a great city- Birmingham that is. Really love the city centre round the canal with outside bars etc. Stayed in Colesville the other weekend when visiting NEC and fell in love with the place- and pub we stayed in.

Finnemore Raod, Bordesley Green to be precise.

I remember the Bullring and the markets around the city and the walk to the bus for school, lined with huge trees.

Nah. It's a Community Mental Health Team.

Birmingham has had an overhaul, I think its fair to say, it was a little grim a few years ago, and Digbeth coach station was pretty dire last time I used it!

But I love it in Brum, I wouldn't want to be in any other City!

Digbeth has the Custard Factory which is very cool. full of independant artists and crafts ppl and shops... and there is a new Coach Station. 

I actually felt kind of sad today when I was coming back from Brum to London, as I am starting to know my way around.... and feel comfortable jumping on and off the buses.   I don't think I have ever smelt so much weed as I have in Brum (and my London neighbourhood is fairly green), every other bus seems to stink of it.... Including one bus where there was a guy just sitting downstairs at the back smoking...   ::)

I havent been to digbeth in a while TG, must put that right!

I've noticed that on some buses, although around where I live there is quite a heavy police presence some days which has reduced that and the crime rate in general in this area!  Some days you can see around 10 police at bus stops, checking out the buses!
On the other side of every fear is freedom!

Oh Yes. the Custard Factory. That's good... and i've frequented The Rainbow in the past. 8)

And as for the smell of weed on buses, you're quite right. It's everywhere!
