Vote for the Black Country!

As some of you know, I'm actually from an area in the Middle of the UK called the Black Country, yet I currently reside in Manchester in the North West. While I don't get back to my hometown very often, I know where I'm from, and I still carry a slight Midlands twinge to my accent, despite not having lived there for 10 years.

The National Lottery are offering a £50 million grant to 1 of 4 locations in the UK, to put towards Urban regeneration and other such things. Word has reached me that the Black Country is one of those locations, so I figured it's only appropriate to ask all of you if you would be able to log in and vote for my home town. At the end of the day, if you have no allegiance to the other 3, then what's stopping you?? Click here for more info and a documentary featuring Toyal Wilcox. Oh yes.

Here's something from one of the Midlands more famous residents anyway.

MP3 Led Zeppelin - Kashmir / Mirror
