Yea I know, saw that the NVM clashes, mind you it is Wales. . . you know. . . Wales. .  . lots of sheep and every town having a proper english  name and another one in weird language that only a few local people profess to understand or speak.   :008:

Still if I can sell the tickets then, with the right disguise, a trip over the other side of Offer's Dyke might be fun.  :152:

I was thinking about this the other day (actually it was the reverse, someone kept referring to places in England in their equivalent Welsh names had me confused!).

Why are some names translated, while others aren't? I mean Cardiff is a translation of Caerdydd (and loses all meaning), while Paris is Paris, Reykjavik is Reykjavik. It's not name complexity as LlanfairPwllGwynGyll is called Llanfair P.G., and Llanelli is still Llanelli so it's not ease of pronounciation either.

Get rid of them tickets and we can talk this over a  :031:  :152:

Oh, and it was Offa.

Well it’s two seats in the Dunlop grandstand for the Sunday race day. . . . Not cheap . . . . . . . . So may go and tout the spare at the track. . .  . . . . . . . . But a beer sounds good  :016:
