1st March 2017 - Some things Welsh

Thought for the day:" If you are more fortunate than others - builder a bigger table - not a higher fence"

So, another month starts.

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus!

Apparently the Welsh Flag will fly over 10 Downing Street today while Theresa May hosts a reception...
The Downing Street reception will host guests from business, media, tourism, sport and charities with some companies showcasing produce from Wales, while Welsh choir Cor Heol y March will sing.
Theresa May said: "Today, as the Welsh flag flies high alongside the Union flag over Downing Street, we are reminded of the huge part Wales has played in our history and the crucial role it will play in the future prosperity of the UK.

A Welsh lad came home from school and told his mother he had been given a part in the school play.
'Wonderful, 'replies his mother, 'what part is it?'
The boy says, 'I play the part of the Welsh husband.'
The mother scowls and says, 'Go back and tell your teacher you want a speaking part.'

Even Google is getting in on the act.

Within Wales, men from Cardiganshire (Cardis) are not renowned for their generosity, munificence or open-handedness and this is why.
A Scotsman called Angus and a Cardi called Dylan met in a Glasgow bus station, both were broke and both were thirsty.
The Scotsman had an idea for getting a free beer: 'I know a barmaid in a pub near here who has got a very bad memory. If you get her involved in a conversation she can't remember whether you've paid or not.  Let me try it on first.'
Angus went into the pub, chatted to the barmaid, and duly got his free drink.  Now it was the Cardi's turn to try.  Dylan sauntered up to the bar, ordered his pint and began to tell the barmaid all about life in Wales.  Ten minutes later he drained his glass and said to the barmaid.  'Well, it's been lovely talking to you but I've got to be off now.  What about my change?'

Cheers - Happy St David's Day
