Who watches Welsh TV anyway ?
life, n : the whim of several billion cells to be with you for a while.

Dodo deado, Dodi deado, Di deado, Dando deado ... Surely Dido's looking dodgy ?

Despite the high cost of living, it still seems popular.

The welsh?

Also me....

Well...... I live in Wales so I dont really have a choice
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

In the same spirit that caused a group of Welsh to beat up a paediatrician under the misapprehension that he was a paedeophile, I wonder how long it will be before someone gets the wrong end of the stick and beats the living daylights out of a group of Yorkshire Terriers?
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

A number of footballers continue to die, including ex-Welsh international Tony Rowley & the most famous of the current spate: Tommy Garrett, who was capped for England and played in the legendary 1953 "Matthews Final".

Sir Kyffin Williams has died.

He was Wales' top artist in case you were wondering.
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

He is the greatest artist that Wales has ever had.- there will never be another Kyffin Williams

Can anyone name any other great Welsh artists?

excluding the those of the Piss variety.

Lots of Welsh artists here. Never heard of any of them. The Welsh should stick to singing.

I've only heard of four - Rolf Harris, Laurence Llewyllen Bowen, Frank Lloyd Wright and Bryn Williams.

Three of them as their Welsh link is slight, and Bryn Williams cos of F1, but he's a photographer.

and I'm Welsh.

I agree. Art isn't our thing. Stick to singing, rugby, sheep, getting drunk, coal mining & narrow-mindness. :)

Micky Jones, guitarist with Welsh pscyh/rock legends Man, survived three brain tumour operations, but not a well Man at all.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.
