Life in North Wales with an eccentric Welshman, a dog in the twilight of his years and one in the 'know-it-all' of youth.
"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

X Factor addiction
I must confess to having sneaked more than a few peeks at 'The X-Factor' this year, mainly as a protest, ie NOT watching BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing' because of their ageist and sexist behaviour in sacking Arlene Phillips and Karen Hardy! However, now that those two annoying brats, commonly known as Jedward have finally been voted off, my interest has waned.
Fortunately, X-Factor did not affect me to this extent.
Note to self: Make a conscious effort not to watch rubbish.
I obviously had a lucky escape.
