You CAN find anything on the Internet.

Including photos of your home town, Birmingham, England, to print on half-million leaflets to mail around town.

Except, they used a photo of Birmingham, Alabama.

Cow doesn't know what is more interesting, that nobody looked at the leaflet and spotted the error, that only one person called about the error after receiving the leaflet, or that when the error was pointed out the City said it wasn't an error at all.

Have you heard how people from Birmingham, England speak, Ms Cow? It's the perfect accent for a village idiot.

Maybe Birmingham England is different from when you last saw it. They could have remodeled with an Alabama theme.

Doghouse: heh.

GB: That would account for it. Though Cow hasn't been there, she can imagine.

Baba: intriguing theory. Now if only America would remodel with a British theme we might get somewhere.

Just shows that all big towns look the same. Or, people just don't read their junk mail.

Yes Sandi, there is. It's a suburb of Hoover.

Cow laughing at all the posts and resolving next time she travels to pick a big city close by since you apparently can't tell them apart.

That IS truly inspiring...inspiring to Cow to pack her bags and go elsewhere than Birmingham!
