MARCH 2013

March 20th.2013
Today I was invited to join a team for a three hour session at Llangefni Library here on Anglesey to update our knowledge of  blogging.

 Those who have been following my monthly blog since 2009, will have noticed a lapse of three months in my entries. Some must be wonering by now if I've kicked the bucket! It has mainly been due to Alan and myself having forced hibernation with various bugs that decided to invaded our household. Today will hopefully get me back on track.

Another group of us, with assistance from Menter Môn, have been busy for months now, setting up a new Anglesey Heritage website. This covers various interesting historical sites on Anglesey and new sites will be added to it continuously.I have been anxiously waiting for it to go on line on the Anglesey Council's system. Due to various hiccups, this has yet to happen. We have now been promised it will go live in April sometime, so hopefully by my next blog entry!

Next Tuesday,April 2nd on S4C at 8.25pm, a new History series begins -    "Darn Bach o Hanes". (don't know if it will be repeated with English sub titles) I have contributed the story of how my father came to the decision to dredge Llyn Cerrig Bach resulting in his great discovery. For this, I was interviewed on the golf course at Rhosneigr. This was where my father worked prior to becoming Head Groundsman at RAF Valley.
I had such a laugh with Dewi Prysor, the interviewer, as I was made to drive a golf buggy. Dewi kindly took over from me after a few yards. However, I drew the line at swinging at a golf ball on camera, as I hadn't played for over 30 years. Dewi volunteered instead and gave it quite a bashing into the bog somewhere! Hope they haven't edited these two things out!
