I was in a fast-food restaurant today and I heard someone call, "KATHY!"

Turned out to be my matron-of-honor, whom I hadn't seen in a year! I sat down with her and her kids and we all had a great chat.

Life's cool sometimes. :D

I do keep in touch with my old friend, Missy, but you know how life is--busy this, we run in different crowds, etc.

Random question: what can you tell me about Wales? For a school report, my son picked his Welsh heritage (which I know nothing about, except that my grandfather, who was born in the US, continued his Welsh-born dad's coal-mining heritage).

Do they do anything interesting over there? Maybe I'll send in that CD with Tom Jones in the red leather suit and the teacher will start groovin' and give the kid a good grade!

I relly wanted to go to NYU, till I saw the tuition costs. In case anyone was wondering, $43,880.00 a year is the price to pay. I have got to step up and start working my ass off to get a scholarship.

Thanks!

What do people do for fun (ex. fireworks on Guy Fawkes day, but something Wales-specific)? Any regional delicacies? Any noteworthy folklore? (Isn't Cornwall/ King Arthur/ Morgan le Fay based in Wales)?

Famous people from Wales (other than Tom Jones)?

Many thanks! The report is due next Monday, Nov. 15.

I don't think i'm very happy. I always fall asleep to the sound of my own screams. And then I always get woken up in the morning by the sound of my own screams. Do you think i'm unhappy?

Woo-hoo!

Thank you, Missy! :P


I found a Welsh Proverb that I think is universal in application:

"Llaeth i blentyn, cig i wr, cwrw i hen.
Milk for a child, meat for a man, beer for the old. "

That really was sweet. I never knew that Welsh women wore costumes! I love the cool top hat!

Some of their proverbs are a little cold-hearted. I'm not surprised that they never caught on. For instance,

Bai ar wrach dorri ei chlun.
Breaking her hip is the old woman's fault.


Po hynaf for'r dyn, gadwaethaf fydd ei bwyll.
The older the man, the weaker his mind.


Am gwymp hen y chwardd ieuanc.
The young laugh when the old fall.



But these, I think, definitely have some promise:

Bum gall unwaith-hynny oedd, llefain pan ym ganed.
I was wise once, when I was born I cried.


Haws twyllo maban na gwrachan.
A boy is easier cheated than an old lady.

The Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn in Welsh) is situated off the north-west coast of Wales near the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range. It is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait, which is spanned by two picturesque bridges, the Menai Bridge and the Britannia Bridge. Anglesey was known as Mam Cymru ('Mother of Wales') during the middle ages because its fertile fields formed the breadbasket for the north of Wales.

Today it has several thriving towns. The historic town of Beaumaris is the site of one of the castles built by Edward I after his defeat of the Welsh princes, as well as the historic mansion Henllys Hall, now a hotel (see their pages for more on the history of Anglesey and Wales). The town of Holyhead is the main ferry port for travel across the Irish Sea to Dublin and Llangefni, in the centre of the island, is the county town. Kovach Computing Services (the host of this site) is located in the village of Pentraeth.

:arrow: :arrow: Anglesey also has the village with the longest place name in Britain:
:arrow: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (click here to hear it pronounced). The name, when translated into English, means "The church of St. Mary in a hollow of white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and near St. Tysilio's church by the red cave". The name was actually coined in the nineteenth century to attract tourists to the Island. It is abbreviated to Llanfairpwll or Llanfair P.G. by the locals :!:


if you want to hear how its pronounced ..ITS A CORKER !! :lol: ..I think you nedd QT to listen to it .
