Regular repost: Everyone is welcome to post news, events, photos, videos and other interesting tidbits related to the Birmingham metro area.

I will continue to err on the side of caution in removing spam, including promotions, offers, advertisements and inappropriate comments. Plenty of other Google+ communities are better vehicles for those types of posts, but not here.

Thanks for your continued participation.
