How about fans of Sharon Penman's Welsh history trilogy "Falls the Shadow", "There Be Dragons" and "The Reckoning"? Welsh by association?<br><br>Carla

I lived in Wales for a little over two weeks in both 1980 and 1981. The whitewater world championships was held on the Terwerwyn River in Bala Cynwd (sorry for my spelling) It took me two weeks to learn all the rocks in the river! I am not sure if you consider long term tourists as really <i>living</i> in Wales.<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Paul Flack

Taff Attack welcomes 3 new members:<br>Rob from North Wales, and Jasmine and Andy both from Aberystwyth.<br><br>We would also like to announce the 'founder members marathon day'<br><br>As the lowest new member meter total is greater than the 3 founder members added together - we thought it a good opportunity to boost them up.<br><br>Are you feeling guilty enough, how about next week? oh yeah - Ricky, you should really do this in one sitting so bring some pillows babe !!!
