Quite a few know that this UK town recently won the ugliest town award. On Auntie's Radio 4 this morning a journalist living in nearby Berkhamsted poked fun out of Hemel Hempstead but he could have been describing any crap town. There was nothing in what he said that wasn't true of the crap town I live in, Crawley, so it's comforting to know that where I live, we are not alone.Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

Yesterday, another radio programme I was listening to talked about the same award and compared Hemel Hempstead to the nearby historic city of St. Albans. The presenter likened it to someone in St. Albans who having eaten tomatoes, has a dump and passes the tomato seeds into the sewer parcel-wrapped in you-know-what. Where the sewer pipe exits, the tomato seeds take root and lots of tomato plants begin to grow. That's what he likened Hemel Hempstead to. I sometimes feel that Crawley is like that compared to Burgess Hill.Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

If you live in a crap town, be proud. Frown | :(
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
