Nice to see a fellow brummie, i bet from my handle you couldn't tell, or that i also like football. I would also agree to some of your taste in music, at least they all have real instruments.
I just happened to be looking around and as previously mentioned saw where you hailed from so felt compelled to say hello.All the best .

Hiya fellow brummie
nice to meet you.
i take it your a birmingham city fan well someone has to support them
what part do you come from?
I love music and especially the ones who can play there own instruments,i don't like all this chart stuff and half of em can't even hold a guitar never mind play one
catch ya later maybe,i'm off to work now
Top of the morning to you , born and bred in Brum, i have nearly always lived in the east side of the city, at the moment i'm in stechford, well i'm on the glebe if truth be known, but my postal code says stechford so hey. As for latest musicians (used very loosely), hold a guitar, i reckon most of them don't even know what a guitar is, or any real instrument, afterall a lot now is just sampled or synthesized. Nice of you to reply back so a and maybe, oh go on then is deserved. Regards .

i know the glebe very well,best thing they done,was to knock that pub down,it was a sight for sore eyes wasn't it? i live by the white hart in tile cross,not far from you eh?
i met all the birmingham city players tonight,they had there end of season dinner bash at the hilton/met
i'm an aston villa supporter as well as celtic,but don't hold that against me will you? i get enough stick at work
What other music (apart from the good musical taste you share with me)do you like? oh and for the &
Hi Jackie, White Hart hey, i haven't drunk in there for ages, but what a central position, explanation goes something like ive lived in Lea village, Tile cross, Chelmsley wood and of course the Glebe, which puts you virtually in the middle of them all. As for the Glebe pub, it was the first pub i ever got served in at the elderly age of thirteen - to be honest any trouble used to go right down Kitts green road past my grove, so i never had any real hassle from it, but yes it is a good thing in truth. Now then Villa fan hey i'd already guessed to be honest from your slight dig at my team, hold it against you, no, maybe for meeting the blues players - i have two brothers ones a bluenose and yes you guessed the other is a villian. To answer your last question (stop me if i am writing an epic, i have a tendancy to go on a bit, not that you would notice of course lol), i don't believe you can go far wrong with Meat Loaf or David Bowie, but my music taste does strech a lot further than just these-quite a wide spectrum compared to some, but not a great lover of funk. Right then now that you have managed to plough your way through this smaller than Stephen King novel you may have just deserved some more and . One last thing i will be off line for a short while as i'm off to sunny Skegness, so i will catch up with you whence i return, that is if you can cope reading this much. Regards as always .(Lloyd)

i worked in chelmsley wood for 6yrs and lived in lea village for 7yrs,then i moved to yardley,by the yew tree,i loved it there,but i was forced to move,cos the landlord was selling the house
You got served at 13?? blimey i still had to prove my age at 21 i dont use the white hart,thats gone a bit rough now,it used to be a nice pub,but its like many pubs these days,spoilt by the youths who take drugs and ruin it for others,theres been 3 pubs shut because of it,now the sheldon (formerly baldy's mansion)have taken the play area and seating away,to stop the young kids misusing it,sign of the sad times eh?
i hope you have a nice time in skeggy
Hi Jackie, where on the village did you live? i was on Wychbold crescent myself, no:1 (corner of Gressel lane) reason why i ask is because i know someone else that used to live there at the same time as i did, and i suppose i'm just nosey, i left the village for good in 89 so how does that compare?
I know what you mean about getting served in some places, i never did manage to gain entry into the dome even when i was 21, to be honest (and i am) i can easily take 8 years off my age and get away with it. Now as for pubs getting worse, i would have to concur, the main reason though is because a lot of pubs have gone in the last five years and of course the less than nice people have to go somewhere, you can see where it's going cant you, less pubs all full of well call em what you like.Tell you're local "Baldys Mansion" it's what we all called it when i was a kid.
Thanks for asking about my hols, and yes we all had a good time, couple of bad days weather but i wasn't going to let that spoil it for me, besides my mother has lived up there for years now so its a good excuse to see her as well. All the best .

i lived on fordfield road,well this is gettin closer,i probably walk past you every day ,next time i see you i'll at ya
i was out last thursday till saturday morning celebrating my birthday,i'm still recovering,but it was terrific, i had a great time i never used town much,i was more solihull,although i was up on broad street on saturday night,that was good plenty
what have you been upto?
to hear ya had bad weather on your break,but they are the chances you take,when you holiday in britian.
catch ya later
HAPPY belated BIRTHDAY, yeah it is getting closer, i used to have a few friends living in Fordfield road.
As for the weather being a bit bad, i had already made the concious decision that i was going to enjoy myself regardless, which of course we did.
Don't go out much on the town, although i have been known to frequent the square peg, i'm afraid the Kingshurst labour club is more of my style now, i can take the kids and the (wife) likes it so thats a bit of a winner.
Started back at work on Monday after 2 weeks off, and the store is a right tip, mind you it only proves how hard i work, as i keep reminding my boss (also a villa fan). So what else have you been up to then, that is if you are past the memory loss stage, its a alcohol trick .
Regards as always .xxx and it's good catching back up Jackie, have fun and take care. (for your birthday)
Researcher 219888 Posted May 21, 2003
ive been to the square peg a few times,its the cheapest in town i believe,although we found another pub on broad street,where its a £1 a pint including shorts,but it does attract a lot of the young ones,who tend to abuse it and make complete fools of themselves,or maybe its just me showing my age and thats the 'norm' these days
and my memory is still sharp with or without
i used the social clubs when the kids were little,but they've grown and flown the nest,so i'm enjoying the freedom i have now
what store is this then that you work so hard at? and i'm sure your boss appreciates you,after all he is a villa fan
Hi Jackie, mmmmmmmmm a pound a pint hey? used to have to go to sawyers near dudley for that, and on Broad street, and yes i would have to concur, it must be an age thing, i mean we would never have misbehaved now would we?
Right then you were asking about my , ooh that should of said , now come on try it nice and slow, w...o....r....k... yeah that was it , i am a merchandising manager for one of the countries leading electrical retailers (branch level of course), yes the title sounds good, but the remuneration isnt trust me (no i'm not a doctor but still, you get the gist).
Not trying to rub salt into the wounds here, but the first thing i did when i saw my boss after my holiday, was to congratulate him on his team coming lower than my beloved side. Again don't get me wrong, i like all of our local clubs to do well, unless they are playing us. In saying that i was a tad surprised at Taylor leaving, especially as you side were just starting to gel, but then again i believe that you have got a decent manager now.
Can i ask who you are writting for at the moment? and a little this one, but which secondary school did you attend? mainly curious because both myself and midnight went to Sir Wilfred Martineau.
Regards as always BN.xxx
Researcher 219888 Posted May 21, 2003
i never got served in pubs even when i was old enough,so i was still naive to and the effects it has (but i soon quickly found out )
i work in retail and the money is and yet it has a massive turnover
Football is a sore subject right now,cos my other favourite team (celtic) were robbed Taylor was rubbish,we should never of had him in the 1st place,o'leary will take us way above you,wait n see
Who am i 'writting' for at the moment? dont get ya??
and i went to Archbishop Grimshaw cos i'm catholic.
catch you later
, yeah i know what you mean, being a bluenose - theoretically i should be a rangers fan, but i to, follow Celtic. My mate (another Brummie, now living in Dundee) phoned me up last night, he wasn't too pleased either, and also send about being robbed, but then again being a blues fan, it is somethting you sort of get used to.
The only reason i was asking about writting is your handle (sorry force of habit - nickname)
Right then time to egress, got to go to our overpayed jobs hysterically
Researcher 219888 Posted May 23, 2003
they most certainly WAS robbed,celtic can hold there heads high,cos they played brilliant especially Larsson i just hope we win on sunday even the fans were good,over 50,000 and not one arrest
As for my name (long story)
for the just what i needed to wake me up
<smiley. Hi Jackie, well lets start with, yeah the more goals the better for Sunday, and i really hope that Wolves win on Monday, although that would probably mean six points lost next season, they always play well against us.
As for long stories, you seem to do quite well reading my mini-epics, so i am not against shutting up (well maybe for a couple of .... seconds ha ha) and listening for awhile, but hey only if you want to divulge such information.
Right then i am sure we will catch up later so until then regards as always BN.
Researcher 219888 Posted May 24, 2003
i think celtic will win,cos they will be more determined,
my brother used to support wolves when he was very young,but he's a celtic fanatic now,he went to seville to watch the game and he will be totally devastated.
I enjoy reading epics,but i'm not much of a talker
are you out this evening?
we have a soul and R&B weekend at the hotel,it started last night and goes on till 5 in the morning,so i'm going there tonight,i'm not really into that kind of music,but the atmosphere is brilliant,they've taken over the hotel,ive never seen it so busy
hope you have a good weekend
Hi Jackie, fair play to your bro, i mean it was hardly the molineaux he was travelling to. It still must of been a good trip mind, but yeah it would of hurt like a . All the more reason to run rampant tomorrow i say.
Well i hope that you enjoy yourself tonight/tomorrow as i can imagine the atmosphere being almost electric. As for being busy, now that i can believe, at least it makes normal days seem more bearable,and not quite so demanding when you have gone through a majorly busy period.
Obviously where i work, xmas is our busiest time and it can leave you a little bit worn out, considering how long it lasts. I worked for Butlins in Barry island back in '86' and on a saturday you could have 8000 people in and 8000 people out, now that was manic.
Once more then, have yourself a wicked time and i shall catch you later, Regards BN.
Researcher 219888 Posted May 24, 2003
i shall talk tomorrow when the best team win (on goals)
as for busy,well it depends on the function or venue,its different to workin in a 'normal' retail outlet,cos i'm in a hotel and no two week is the same and christmas is our quiet time
and i also worked for butlins in '79' at clacton..i was a waitress what was you?
coincidences again hey? i was the offical unoffical redcoat, in other words i was a general cleaner, but had a sense of humour even then, so i was branded as above.
yep good couple of important days coming up, all in their hands though, do enough and you dont have to worry about the rivals.
On the subject of work, having had that week in Skeg, its been quite hard adjusting back to the pace of life again (especially the pace i work at, trying not to be pompous). Over there it doesnt matter where you go, things are very laid back (or should that be slow) including in alleged supermarkets. Couldn't imagine either of us being allowed to go at such a slow rate of pace, could you?
