Well she was only a Frenchman's daughter but she had Lourdes of sex appeal.

Did You Know That: in Japan there are shops where teenage girls sell their smelly knickers, which are then displayed in vending machines for dirty old men. :fsm_rock:

Did You Know That: in Japan you can walk into any bookstore in the country, and see people standing around openly reading comic books depicting prepubescent children having sex?

Did You Know That: in Japan you can show all sorts of freaky, perverted acts in pornography, as long as you put a little censor bar across the clitores, vaginal openings, and frena? Due to Japan's cultural heritage, the Japanese are much more hung up about the display of private parts than they are about children having sex.

Ashley loves studying Japanese culture, so I know more than I ever wanted to know about it.

Did you know: that in Japan a lot of the stores look the same, but some of them are actually hentai galleries.

Did you know Welsh people actually speak Welsh? I sort of assumed it was a conspiracy to keep Welsh-speakers in a living doing the translating for signs in the name of 'equality'. (Well, Scottish Gaelic is supposed to be an equal language but I never heard any bugger speaking that although, given the rather broad accents in my extended family, that might be my fault.)

It is a real, everyday language and I did feel a bit bad for not knowing how to say hello in it when I was wombling. As it turns out, smiling and nodding while being ridiculously out of breath works well.

In a related sidenote, the Brecon Beacons are bloody hilly. On the way up to the path to Corn Du I had to stop a few times and then on the way down I couldn't stop for fear of falling face first down the slope :idiot:

Did you know that some bloke in the Highways Department of some Welsh Council, needing the Welsh for some road sign, emailed the Welsh-language department and copied the reply he got back. The Welsh sign says "I am out of the office just now, back on Monday"? :fsm_rock:

I don't think we will be going near Moreton. However if you get the chance to pop to the Gower for the day we could meet up. It's a bit of a trip that though isn't it?
