    Corporate America today is the lobbying arm of the Chinese Communist Party and Wall Street is the investor relations department S Bannon.

    Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people - does not even pretend to try, instead, he tries to divide us

    We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership -Mr Mattis

    The Bretons moved over from South-West Britain at the end of Roman times, and are our cousins. Their language, other than Cornish/Cernyweg, is the closest of all to ours, though not all that like nowadays.

    Cool.... What really surprised me last year, had a couple friends that hiked the Camino de Santiago, posting tons of pics along the way then suddenly I see one of this guy playing bagpipe....LMAO... I knew of that area, but not that they were still holding on to the traditions in Galicia & the adjacent parts of Portugal..

    What made it even more interesting was one of them is Portuguese but from the island Madeira...

    Her last name is Carins- yea, pile of rocks in Scottish-her husband is Scott-> Ppl use them around the world as trail markers..

    The twist is the ppl that settled her island are from the Gaelic area of Portugal-they went in mass there a couple hundred years ago....

    I thought that was pretty interesting..

    Yes, fascinating. A few years ago I made contact with a cousin from the Patagonian province of Argentina. She didn't speak a word of English or 'Welsh', but she had a friend with her who spoke the Patagonian version of our language, who appeared to understand me, though I found her a bit difficult. By the time she'd translated into Spanish and I'd translated into English for my wife, I reckon it got a bit unclear. In a very similar way, I had a corporal on our Chinese course who lived quite near where my parents were at the time. He married a girl who spoke Cantonese and a little of the National Language, while he was the opposite, and took her home to live with his Grandmother, who spoke only our language, and his Mother, who spoke that and English. I often wonder how they made out when he was away. Another cousin of mine came visiting from Seskatchewan, where a whole mass of Patagonian Cymry settled when the Argentines got awkward. They speak, I gather, fluent Spanish, 'Welsh' and English, but all very oddly. Amazing how things survive!
