George, an English visitor to the small Welsh town of Aberaeron, Cardiganshire, was approached by one of the deacons of the local chapel who asked him whether he would like to attend their chapel on the following Sunday.

‘Wouldn’t that be a little pointless?’ replied George politely.  ‘After all, your services are held in Welsh and I don’t understand the language.’

‘Ah yes, boyo,’ answered the deacon, ‘but the collection is in English.’

    I wonder if the sermon sounds better when you don’t understand the language?

    Nobody has sent me an award (see the comment above from letstalkabout family). I think I will go out back and listen to my chimes. Dianne
