Phil if you do decide to venture into the unknown, I strongly suggest that you vist the new Bull Ring at 10 Oclock in the morning when it opens, once you get past lunch time it really fills up and week ends/bank holidays its not the place for you. It's a victim of it's own success. several coaches a week visit the the Bully, when it's busy it's very busy. Even we go elswhere then. If ever you change your mind I repeat my offer of giving you a guided tour. SB

If I ever do decide to have a ramble around town, it will be the pubs I will need a guide for, because I think most of my old haunts are gone now. I think I might give the Bull Ring a miss as there is nothing there for me now.

My Son came a few weeks ago with one of those Apple TV boxes that you can stream films and videos from the internet. Its all fitted up in the living room and its never been used. He spent about an hour explaining how everything worked and left us to get on with it.
I hope he doesn't ask us what we think of it, as you know I never watch television (well hardly) and the wife has enough trouble switching a television on. She has only just about mastered the remote control.

If I watch television at all, it will be whatever is on something like UK Gold or Dave I cant watch modern TV programmes at all they just irritate me because there is nothing good about them.
If occasionally they come across a new format for a programme they ruin it by making too many spin offs, take the American programme CSI it was good when it came out about 10 years back. Now you have half a dozen programmes along the same line, even an English one I understand.
If there is one type of TV programme getting right up my trumpet these days are the cookery programmes. What a load of over stretched Tripe. i am sick to death of them. Followed closely by Embarassing bodies and escape to the country.
