    Where in the world are you

    I’m in the south of Uk near Arundel 30 minutes from Portsmouth, 45 minutes from Brighton

    I find it interesting to see where everyone is

    Haven't been for a few years so it might have changed but the Mathew street festival and the Yellow Submarine festival could only be held in Liverpool.
    Streets packed shoulder to shoulder no traffic allowed a band on a st6age around every corner pubs selling beer out the windows in plastic pots because you can't get in streets full of the smell of weed and the cops .... not bothering anyone.
    Picking up the odd drunk here and there and generally looking after the public so the public can let their hair down and boogey!
    I don't know of any other city in the UK where the cops behave like that and the public on the whole get on with partying.
    Great little city .... get my spices and stuff there twice a year still.

    Another resident of Reading here too. I seem to recall there's someone else on the forum as well, but can't remember their forum name unfortunately.

    Begs the question; is Reading over represented with diabetics, or over represented in this forum .

    Shiba.
