Volty I would have thought Coventry Road or Stratford Road,never even thought of Alum Rock.



I'm not surprised at Alum Rock, but I can think of a worse one Ladypool Rd, I would never accept a job that meant we had to drive a lorry down Ladypool Rd because you were talking about an impossibility. It didn't matter how many times the police and traffic wardens had a blitz down there straight after they had been down the road handing out tickets and towing cars they would be back parking on both sides of the road and completely blocking the road in places.

John

It should be of double interest to you as it also tells of their lives in Northfield after moving from Balsall Heath. Amazon has copies for £5.75 I think, but Waterstones are asking £35.

I fancy getting a kindle, too much going on at the moment and for a few months but may think about having one for christmas.


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Morning all,
I am a voracious reader of all sorts apart from fiction.
I bought a kindle and I love it, a complete library in your pocket,at the moment I have 17 books on it, so light compact and convenient.
Easy to read even in the brightest sunlight,you can also change the type size or the orientation of the page.
I have not paid more than 77 p for any book so far,once you 've read them wipe them off,or keep if you so wish.
I have the basic model £89,the other two are £149 and £169,these are touch screen, (which I hate) and have a mini keyboard, (mine is built -in.
Would reccomend to anyone who likes reading ,especially for travelling.
