My gran always used to say "Put you ganzy on before you go out". What she was telling me to do was put my cardigan/jumper on.

evening - as you know my wife is australian, the first time time I brought her home bham to meet my family, she kept taking me aside to translate - we went to a comedy show on Torquay pier, the whole place were falling about laughing, she didnt get the humour for the few she could understand.

To me Bawl, outdoor and pop are not specifically Brum or black country but used in many places. Why on earth someone would use some comment on Twitter as authentication of anything strikes me as evidence of how rubbish the reporters on the E.M must be now.

I can remember most of them words, think a few are more Black country. Like Jo I remember the drain called the suff, others were the miskin (dustbin ), canting for talking and nozzaking for being nosey. I took the E.M. in Mikes post to be the Evening Mail.

My mom always used the terms Canting or Rattling for having a chat. Of course EM must be the Evening Mail. scuse me for being so slow.

If some one refers to poor quality reporting, I always assume they mean the Birmingham Evening (make it up as you go along) Mail.

There used to be so many spelling mistakes, we used to have competitions to see how many you could find. Although I am a fine one to talk with my recent "Kind of the Road" post.

But then it's a good thing I think that older people keep some of the old words and phrases going. Otherwise the younger people would keep changing things with every generation and the old ways would disappear faster, that's sometimes a good thing sometimes a tragedy I think.
