    Also, there looks to be a whole bunch of sea imagery in that Mari Lwyd picture. I think that’s a scallop shell in the background, and possibly a neptune’s necklace and some coral. How strange.

    Hehehe, one of my Welsh friends tweeted the Mari Lwyd and its song into my timeline on Christmas Eve. Made me laugh!

    I’m sure the world has been getting worse and worse since we lost Terry Pratchett. Over here, one of the telly channels shows its Pratchett adaptations every Christmas, and when he turned up at the end of Going Postal I honestly felt like crying. The world is poorer without him.
