This really is the highlight of one of the most boring towns in the UK. Fortunately I never lived there, just close enough for it to be the principal hospital at the time.

I am not a number, I am a free man!!!

Yam's norra brummie. One was heducated in the school of kings in nearby Worcester, far enough away from the likes of Kidderminster/Droitwich/Stourport to avoid the dreaded nasal affliction. Worcester is my hometown, I was just unfortunate enough to spend the first 4 days of my life in 'brums-graove'
phew .... lunch is still on then

Re: Postcards from your birth place

I spent most of my childhood a couple of bays around from Dodger.

At a place called Valentine.

Actually yes, something went wrong on the final production phase and I ended up like this... sorry I didn't shave today



PS. I knew there was a reason ...
