    Isn't that supposed to be Pee Narth as spoken by the western Penarthian Toffs.

    No! I know a few natives of Penarth and they always speak of it as Pee narth. Especially at their cheese and wine parties.

    The town's been infiltrated by outsiders since they started doing up the bay etc. and moved out the ruffians to Barry to make way for the influx on newbies who don't speak proper

    A few years back, Mrs TDA and I were lucky enough to be able to have a retirement / change of lifestyle holiday of a lifetime.

    On the evening of my birthday, we found ourselves in the Atherton Highlands above tropical Queensland at this fair establishment

    Oz 2008 482.jpg

    We had a fantastic evening there with the locals and the beer and food was superb. It turned out that the family of the owner has emigrated from a village in South Wales, the name of which his wife had written down but nobody could pronounce. The note got passed around the locals who were completely clueless for a couple more rounds and, as the beer flowed, the pronunciation got worse. Eventually, I wrote it phonetically for them ....

    (True story :old:)

    I'd love to go back. The country is immense and there is so much to see, but it's like stepping back 30 years in terms of sophistication and facilities.
