Did I hear you on Radio Cymru this pm when I was driving home from work? You sounded brilliant, so competent and articulate in Welsh - it was amazing

Any idea what programme it was, Claire? About what time? We might be able to put a link here.

Who's the chap who is on during the afternoons? John Hardy I think. I was driving back from Lampeter so it was around 3 - 3.15pm. They were talking about St David's Day being celebrated in USA and Diane was talking about her learning experiences with SSIW amongst other things.

I'll have to go listen to find out what I said -- we recorded it this morning about 1:30 Wales time, so 8:30am here. I blame everything on insufficient coffee. :shock:

Edit: Here's the link (for 7 days). The conversation starts around 1:07, and the first 5 or 6 minutes are about SSIW.

Will someone please slap me the next time I start a sentence with "Wel, ...."? :roll:

Ffantastig fel arfer, Diane. Llongyfarchiblinkinadau. :clap:
I thought you coped brilliantly and wittily with the first question "What's the difference between Washington DC and the real Washington"? How naff was that? :wow:
Is there no limit to your talents?

BTW "Wel" is a perfectly good Welsh word. :wink:

Yes I hear it!... Hiraeth - the link with the long-forgotten past, the language of the soul, the call from the inner self. Half forgotten - fraction remembered. It speaks from the rocks, from the earth, from the trees and in the waves. It's always there.
