How far from Cardiff? (Cardiff Student)
About 11 miles from Cathays where I live.
Trains from Cardiff Central to Pontyclun, then a 1 mile walk. Various buses will get you within a mile, look for buses going to or via Llantrisant, Talbot Green, or Pontyclun.
If you can drive there, it's 2 miles from J34 on the M4 (turn left at the Texaco garage).

Guest. Cardiff student..

I should check what I'm reading! You only live down the road.

If you're staying there all weekend I can probably organise a lift. PM me nearer the time and we'll have a chat.

What does "Miskin" actually mean? I'm curious because it's also a phrase we learned in Ethiopia during our Peace Corps days which meant "poor little unfortunate one." The street beggars would chorus the phrase as they entreated passerbys for handouts. We would use the same phrase for ourselves after a hard day of teaching.

Maybe Ethiopians were the original settlers of Wales?

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

ask him, apparently up until Tuesday night, he'd never had the pleasure of doing it with others , always accapulco til then.
It seemed to have given him the idea that there is more, than just playing with yourself.

Nigel

On the meaning of Miskin.
The road sign to Miskin has the Welsh name as Meisgyn.
I think the first syllable means "shallow" but my dictionary doesn't have a word "gyn".
Any thoughts?

Ned

Could Gyn be related to the Greek word for "woman"?

I think it might be safer to stick with Nigel's Maes Gwyn (=Whit(e)field)

I've been to a bigger dictionary, and "Meisgyn" means "Moth"

My mate reckons that during the big push to get bilingual roadsigns in the 70s, this was a hasty transliteration done late on a Friday afternoon.

By the way, I will be there at Easter.

So I am. I hadn't checked the website lately for confirmation.
I shall also be Concert Director (that's Andy's title for me anyway, I think he's trying to make me feel important) which means if you are booked, I make sure you are where you should be when you should be. We used to call that Stage manager in my day.

And if anyone fancies a spot of storytelling there is always the story walk through the wood, ending up at the campfire on Sunday evening, accompanied by a healthy bucket of hot mulled cider.   Bring your stories.

The 'New' Severn Bridge (the more Southerly of the two) provides greater protection from the wind than the older model.
