If there was a negative it was tipping. It got to the stage where I'd tip somebody if they passed me in the street.

Tipping and sales tax tend to cause the most minor issues. i always forget to add the sales tax and get suprised at the till.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Years ago, I worked round the corner from an off-licence that specialised in beers from all round the world, and they had some American beers from the smaller breweries which were excellent. These days, you can get some of them in Supermarkets in the UK.

If they can speak Welsh in Pennsylvania, it's more than I can! Maybe I'd have to go to church if I lived there.

There was a Welsh language chapel in New York City when I looked into it about 15 years ago. I got the impression that the 'service book' bits were in Welsh but any sermon or talking around that was in English.

I'd be very surprised if it was any more than that in this chapel.

you can get brooklyn lager in our local ASDA which is acceptable

but the variety I came across, the flavours from rich malt to flowert hoppy and the strengths of some of them was sensational. A lot opf these beers went really well with food.

The town of Brynmawr in Gwent is actually at the bottom of a big hill.
