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

  • Dear nuxity!

    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?

    Hwyl, Annette

  • Fagin... ha ha - this made me smile. To me, St. Fagans simply means the fantastic open-air museum in Cardiff. Your Wordie is wonderful!
    Hwyl XXXX

  • 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

  • Genau. Das war sehr interessant. Mark war auch schon in Irland. Ich war noch nicht da.

    March 26, 2009

  • 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.
    Hwyl fawr.

  • Hello 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!

    Hwyl!

  • And follow me - @nettys

    March 26, 2009

  • No! I actually like Plurk!

  • I agree - I had a couchsurfer from New York staying with me. I like this Zeitgeist very much. I must couchsurf, too!

  • 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!

    March 27, 2009

  • 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.

    March 26, 2009

  • 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...

    March 26, 2009

  • 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?

    March 26, 2009

  • Hi Nettys. Which part of Wales are you in? Are there dragons?
