There's now a Welsh school in Trevethin. The kids probably still won't pass many exams but they'll almost certainly end up speaking better Welsh than English.

At the risk of making this thread too exciting and fascinating, I've just bought a new kettle.

I just bought an electric toaster.

More than 50 summers in this vale of tears, and I've never owned one before.

So, here we are in mid-August, Futtocks?  What domestic gadgetry have you purchased (or are you planning to do so) this month?

Well, er... I bought some toaster bags as well as the toaster.

And a new remote control for the amplifier.

Let me know if this gets too interesting.

That's to encourage your passenger to pay for it.

It is a safety feature on left hand drive vehicles, where the fuel tank is further away from the driver in an accident, unfortunately in the UK we have right hand drive vehicles, and the manufactors are too lazy to move the fuel tank.

At the time of my writing this, the photography thread has had 3,440 replies.

3440 is the number of one of the iconic steam engines of the Great Western Railway, City of Truro.  New in 1903, it allegedly reached a speed of 100mph on a scheduled journey the following year.  This is questioned by some, but if true, would make it the first railway, steam locomotive to reach this milestone.
