Best hairdresser in town - very good staff. It is near the clock tower in Aberystwyth. Once a month I use this term.

I really do not know much about Chomsky’s political orientation.
I have just read a little bit about a support for John Kerry - but I do not know. Anti-Americanism is central to his worldview. I have also just read this. I do not like it. To me, all people everywhere are equal. I do not understand enough yet.
I only enjoy his linguistic theories. Does this answer your question?

nettys commented on the word st. fagans
Fagin... ha ha - this made me smile. To me, St. Fagans simply means the fantastic open-air museum in Cardiff. Your Wordie is wonderful!
Thank you, dear Bilby. Yes, food and drink to get - this can be a bit of a problem in Wales. If I had known you then I would have cooked you a meal. You could have called with us in Machynlleth! We love visitors - from everywhere!! I like the Welsh mountains - Snowdonia. In Aberystwyth there is a great shop called Pollys - they sell individual clothes. I wonder which pub you went to in Aber?!! I love Cardiff. It is a nice capital.
I will add more Welsh words - promised. I am fluent yn yr iaith.
Hwyl nawr, Annette
nettys commented on the word panorama wales
Genau. Das war sehr interessant. Mark war auch schon in Irland. Ich war noch nicht da.
nettys commented on the user sionnach
Danke, sionnach. Toll, Du sprichst Deutsch. It is a long story. Been in Wales since 2000 - möchte aber umziehen. Vorher oder bald möchte ich nach Irland.
nettys commented on the user bilby
I am in mid-Wales, Machynlleth. I used to live in Aberystwyth before - and in Cardiff.
Have you been to Wales?
Yes, there are dragons and goblins around. Diolch for your comment - yn hapus!
You are in Argyll? Fantastic!
Im April hatte Mark Robert Davey aus Wales in der SUB (Niedersächsische Staats-Und Universitätsbibliothek) in Göttingen eine sehr erfolgreiche Fotoausstellung mit dem Titel �?Panorama Wales�?.
@Prolagus: Hi, thanks a lot for your warm welcome.
I just love words - in many languages!
@having: a precoffee / Vorkaffee now, i.e.that's a coffee before the breakfast coffee whilst getting ready.

Sorry, must've misread the comment--it does look like the sentence refers to Kerry, but anyway... Carry on!

I could defend Chomsky at length, but really Wordie is not the right place to debate politics. There is plenty about him on the internet so by all means have a look if you can be bothered. He of course is also an accomplished linguist and perhaps deserving of a place in the pantheon alongside Saussure and the rest.
But I don't wish to clutter up your profile with piffle! I'm enjoying your contributions to Wordie so keep at it!
yarb commented on the user nettys
Yes, I don't think Nettys was suggesting that John Kerry is anti-American...
I've been to Machynlleth, and not only that, I can pronounce it too. I just got back from visiting various family in North Wales actually. Aberystwyth is nice isn't it, though it always feels a bit like the end of the world to me.
nuxiy commented on the user nettys
I think Nettbys is talking about Chomsky, not Kerry. Chomsky has expressed sympathy towards anarcho-syndicalism, but I wouldnt call him "Anti-American". Anti-capitalism, though...
I hate to interrupt the conversation, but I don't believe John Kerry espouses "Anti-Americanism," and it is certainly not "central to his worldview," so not sure where you read that (likely someone on the opposite end of the political spectrum--Republican Party, perhaps?). And Chomsky is generally viewed to be far to the left (if that helps any). :)
What is your opinion on Chomsky`s political orientation?
I took some good (I think) photos that day, what with one hand clutching the steering wheel and the other my poor underfed stomach! Eventually I managed to find a (Pakistani) store open and bought some cold food :-) But I thought Wales was a marvellous and spectacular place in many ways so I hope I can go back there soon. Thanks for the offer, B.
Hi Nettys. I passed through Aberystwyth on Christmas Day. Actually I stopped for lunch, although there was no lunch to be had :-( At a pub, a man told me he would be happy to sell me a 'Christmas drink' (measured in pints, it seemed) but no food. As if that were somehow wrong. But Wales remains something of a fascination for me. I hope you'll add some Welsh words if you can. Wordie loves words!

Wie lange wirst Du in Wales sein?
Hi Nettys. Which part of Wales are you in? Are there dragons?
