Re: Hope you are all ok?!

There is no truth in the rumour that Margaid, Marigold and I have visited Wales which is the reason for the right downpour they got. Ex PP members will remember no doubt us all planning to meet at Glaslyn only to be thwarted by flooding Oops, sorry, I was in Sennybridge last Saturday. Have had a fa...

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

The one simple point that has bothered me from the announcement of the referendum result; why was Cameron so out of touch that he was convinced he would win to the extent of having no plans in place for Brexit?

Re: One small step..........

Nearly as good as Simon's Cat Marigold, but then I am a cat lover ... Brilliant Marigold. Educative and funny! 😷 I thought so too, but they overlooked one point. One of my aunts told me I'd know when I'd met the right man because even his farts would smell lovely! :roll: [/quote] What a pity you did...

Re: "Shetland in a box?"

I think I've posted this before somewhere, but a friend and I have decided we are never going to live in Places. We're not sure where "Places" is, but it nearly always has rain or showers; just occasionally there are sunny spells in Places :)

Re: What if English were phonetically consistent?

It's one of the silly things that gives you the giggles. 'Rydw i'n is the colloquial "long" form, the full version without apostrophes is "Yr ydwyf i yn hoffi coffi" - but really depending on the verb it can mean "I do" or "I am". In front of "mynd" = to go, it can mean "I go" or "I am going". There...

Re: What if English were phonetically consistent?

Sorry Rick, your guess is wrong. I'm a bit rusty not having studied any grammar for many years, or had much opportunity to use the language, so apologies to any Welsh speakers on the forum. Generally speaking the sentence construction is very similar to English, except for the position of the adject...

Re: What if English were phonetically consistent?

I have to be pedantic here and explain I'm not a Welsh speaker but I can speak Welsh. A Welsh speaker is a person whose first language is Welsh; my first language is English. But yes, Marigold is right because in Welsh the adjective comes before the noun. This means that you will see things like "Gw...

What is even more amazing is that we can understand people when they get it wrong!

Re: One small step..........

In the spirit of science, may I offer this link which attempts to explain why most people find the smell of their own emissions quite attractive, whilst being disgusted by those originating from others. If you're a bit squeamish you might not want to click this link, but I thought it was an interes...

Re: One small step..........

You beat me to it Rick although my recipe is a bit different. I cut the aubergine in half lengthwise, scoop out (and keep) the pulp. Sprinkle with salt and leave to stand for half an hour to draw some of the liquid out, rinse and pat dry. (I don't always bother). Meanwhile chop 4 onions, 4 cloves ga...
