Default Pepper and Salt! (Condiments of the season) :-)

A very merry and satisfying Christmas and a happy new year
to all my readership.

And, on the basis that I'm finally getting around to
learning Cymraeg (Welsh), ...

.... Nadolig LLawen!

How do you say "Not guilty" in Welsh, G? You might want to practice that
one, just in case.

A few years ago, I stoppped for a couple of days at a farmhouse near
Carmarten(sp) . Nice people, most Welsh people are. I asked the
housewife how she did in Welsh.

"I miss some nuances, of course, I am from North Wales, only been
living here for fifty years."

Even in with accents and dialects, not even entirely different
languages, you can move short distances and hear differences- if not
pick up on there significance. Perhaps less so now people tend to
travel more, of course TV, radio all play a part.

As a child, I had relatives who lived within 6 or 7 miles of us and
their dialect was quite different. Relatives of a similar age who lived
closer didn't show the same differences. At times it really was a bit of
an issue.

I had a high school teacher who said that her Italian husband's
home village had a similar thing: the dialect of the people across the
river was quite different.

Back in the bad old days, two houses on different sides of the same
freeway... a phone call from one house to the other... was a
long-distant toll call !!! That is sort of analogous to speaking
dialects !!! :-)

I heard about a hotel in California that straddled area code
boundaries - it was long distance to call from one end of the
building to the other.

The town of Lloydminster sits right on the Alberta/Saskatchewan
border. There's some interesting billing there.

I know someone that could walk from one side of their house to the other
and their mobile coverage would go from Vodafone Holland to Vodafone
Belgium.
