Television programme on Plas Teg

A few adverts to begin but be patient it is worth it!

Plas Teg? That's what a Welsh person with a speech impediment calls "plastic", isn't it?

Have you seen a ghost, Lesley?

Only the one in my image whoelius. Have you seen a ghost?

I was just about to offer to sell to you my camera equipment, Jim. I want a boat, you see...

Hi Lesley: An amazingly interesting place. There is so much history in your neck of the woods. I envy my mother who had the presence to tour England & Scotland. In retrospect I should have made this a priority also to do earlier on. Anyway thanks for the insight to Jacobean House. BTW, home now after 3 days on the road and a little over 1000km today. Very tired. :-)

Best, Ron

Hi Jim

That was a bit of a rant wasn't it? :-))) I'll bet you feel so much better now. ;-) The next time you are 'storming' I suggest you grab Roxy, and take a good sniff of her ears! It works wonders for anger and stress ;-))

My son works from home and whenever he has a telephone conference he keeps Tilly close by just for that purpose. :-D

Hi Ron,

I'm sure your 'Very tired' is on a higher level to the general description, but it must be good to be home. Perhaps by the time you read this you will be feeling better.

If you eventually have the time do watch the television programme on Plas Teg. You would probably enjoy the other programmes in the series also, (if not you your wife might). The owners of the properties are the best of the odd, eccentric aristocrats left in this country today, and can be very amusing.

Thank you 乾龍! I do appreciate your kind comments and visits. :-)

Best wishes, Lesley

Hi Lesley: I did attempt to watch the Plas Teg video but unfortunately the service is not provided here. Oh well.... Thank you for kindly suggesting it.

Also had to smile at reading Jim's rant on boating. I have a close friend since grade school who was very successful in business. (It's he and his wife kissing in this PHOTO He is into boating big time and last year traded his 2004 55 foot SeaRay seen HERE for a 2009 model of the same size. Anyway what I was wanting to get at is the fuel consumption - with two 800 H.P. diesels, fuel consumption at 28 to 30 MPH cruising speed is 0.6 miles per U.S. gallon which means burning approximately 50 U.S. gallons (190 liters) of fuel per hour. I recall on one outing we boated from Kingston, Ontario, up the full length of Lake Ontario to Port Dalhousie, Ontario, which was a little over a 6 hour run. The yacht has a fuel capacity of 4,500 liters. Boating can indeed be an expensive past time and far far beyond my means. :-))


All the best, Ron

Wow Ron that is some boat! I am very envious of your 6 hour trip. How good that must have been :-)))

The cost is exhorbitant and my husband doesn't even like spending money on a car for himself, and so I reckon the boat brigade won't be having us join them. :-(( I hasten to add we would have to win the lottery before it was even remotely possible anyway!

So good to hear from you, Best wishes, Lesley
