Worth It's Weight In Gold
There was a bit of good news on the TV news last night. The former Woolworth's in the Victoria Centre is going to be turned into a pound shop. So I paid a visit today to see what was happening. Apparently it's going to be the biggest one in the country. I'm not sure if that's something for the city to be proud of or not. This means that there will be 12,500 sq feet of tat for sale. Although to be honest, they do have some good things in occasionally, like books, dvds and model cars. But a lot of it is rubbish and a waste of the worlds declining resources. Badly painted figures, plastic things that no one quite knows what they are for and tacky party decorations are amongst the delights on offer. At least some new jobs will be created.
I have to thank some fellow bloggers who left congratulatory messages on yesterday's entry. It seems that my page has become a 'blog of note'. I didn't know anything about it. So thanks to those that selected it for inclusion into the hall of fame.
