    Some of it is. The burned-out ex-cinema is but everything the other side of the railway bridge is Splott.

    So why did you say lower Roath then? That is not exactly stating the bleeding obvious. Happy St. David's day btw. :)

    Well vexed at the moment .....Wood Street NCP is being pulled down....so's NCP have removed the concession parking from Westgate...over to Knox road...fuck that for a laugh...as they want to max out the full price car parker's (£5 per day concession.. To £22 per day)....So I now have a daily hunt around saltmead for a free space...totally pants when raining...

    Well it's nice that someone's doing something with it but I would have much preferred it if it had reopened as a venue.

    agreed

    That's disappointing. I'm glad it's not going to fall down, but yeah, a venue would have been better.

    I think some of the artists from Abacus are in there at the moment, but it doesn't look like its going to be a community venue for long. Shame, wish there was the money to restore it to its former glory as a music venue. Saw Van grumpy Morrison there about 10 years ago.

    Just read about the incident in town today, a man sat on the edge of the NCP car park on Dumfries Place, following an attack on a copper. Hope they talk him down.

    Think the attack happened after he was on roof. Also didn't jump AFAIK

    A friend of mine works as a teaching assistant at a primary school in the Vale. They took the kids to Cefn Mably farm for a day out, whereupon she came accross this item of confectionery for sale. What were they thinking of? :D

    This is happening in Cardiff this weekend as part of the Coleridge in Wales celebrations. Not v well publicised but hopefully should be a fun family day out type thing

    On May 15, a ghost ship – replete with freshly married couple and zombie sailors – will be docked in Cardiff Bay … all inspired by Samuel Coleridge’s poetic monolith, theRime of the Ancient Mariner.

    ZOMBIE SAILORS … SCORCHED DECKS … GHOST SHIPS IN CARDIFF ON SUNDAY 15 MAY …

    What makes you think it's Pete? Not seen him for a few years either. I remember vaguely that he was stabbed a few years back when he was knocking about with Bubbles

    heard earlier that a dog had died

    email from Cardiff animal network:

    Please forward on as matter if urgency to Cardiff contacts.

    Yesterday 3 dogs were poisoned in Waterloo gardens aka mill park penylan Cardiff.

    Meat with poison in purposely put in Park for animals to eat.

    One chihuahua is fighting for its life.

    There are many dogs and their owners in that park and it is flanked by other parks too.

    Please tell everyone you know to share this information and make sure their dogs are kept on lead or don't eat off floor there.

    Also tell cat owners in area to keep cats in as cats do go into that park they may also eat the meat.

    So, 24 odd years or working in or off Queen street (apart from 4 years down in that London) and in the past 6-12 months I have never seen so many people sleeping rough in town.

    Almost most of the empty shops and doorways on or around queen street are full, and down near Fed and the small Tesco by John Lewis there is loads of people, some couples even.

    :(
