It would be unrealistic to consider all my knowledge was built since November. I didn't come here empty :)

About what I want, is already achieved: to speak with you all, to learn new things and habits, to make new friends.
who is coming for a coffee? :)

Maggie , The Big Issue is a weekly Magazine sold by the homeless. There are lots of sellers around most big cities including Birmingham. It helps to put a few legitimate pounds in these unfortunates pockets. I believe I am right in saying that it first went on sale in 1991 in London and was started by John Bird and Gordon Riddick. I think that they picked up the idea form the USA.

"The Big Issue" a magazine sold by the homeless on the streets of all our major City's. It was thought up to combat the homeless being arrested for begging on the street which is against the law. If they were selling something then they were not begging.
