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."

At 8.30 yesterday morning on a beach at Rhossilli, 400 people took up the challenge to stay in the (extremely cold) water for at least 10 minutes, to raise money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care and the National Trust.Read all about it here.
And before you ask, no, I was not among their number - far too cold for me.
Daphne, on the other hand, could have been there except that she was busy doing her own Great North Swim. You can read a comprehensive account of that on Silverback's blog, here.
It's a good thing some of us are hardy critters!
