We're still using Oxen around this neck of the woods.

Gerald a friend of mine is just on the edge of the Elan Valley. About a month ago one of the 30 inch mains burst. Made a right mess of the land and up-rooted many trees. It was a cast pipe that burst, the fragments of cast were so poor they crumbled between your fingers. Which means the rest of the pipe must be the same.

Birmingham will run out of water unless they stop losing one third every day
through Leaks, Running taps and Dripping Taps.
Serious warning from water suppliers.

I can't really comment on the centre of Brum, I only used to stop off there at New Street to get my connection to Wales or walk across town to snow Hill.

I do know that I can't find my way around  Brum by car these days, all the old rat runs have disappeared. The old housing estates that I lived on are terrible places, one of which has been demolished. Such a lovely place when we moved into those new houses in the early 60's. It had become a druggies paradise before being knocked down.

A Shropshire lad, by Phil Drabble, lovely read.

Another good country book: I walked by night. Can't remember the authors name, but he was a poacher.

Hello Gerald, I've been watching sparrows and house martins nesting in the barn. The blue tits are back and forth to their nest box, I can't hear any lyles ones yet. I also spotted where the nuthatch has nested yesterday. They are in a very old nest box, it's just about holding on to the tree with one screw. Didn't want to interfere in case they deserted the nest, I'm just hoping for the best.

I don't know how many of you actually visit Brum? It looks nice with all the glass and modern features. Being of old school I loved Brum in the 60s 70s when it was a real City with real architecture and real characters.
