    Question aboutCardiff Wales

    I have a query. Saturday evening, my husband was watching a boxing match where one of the fighters ( the favored one) was from Cardiff. They did a little pre fight blurb about Cardiff..showing the town off. Now for some reason, I feel as if Cardiff is famous for something other than this boxer,..... But for the life of me I am not sure why I have heard of Cardiff. A search did not help me, and still left me a bit stumped.
    Anyone have any clues?

    Apart from being the capital of Wales, the location for the newer Dr Who series and the Millenium Stadium it doesn't have a lot going for it.

    Joe Calzaghi is currently its most famous son but before him any number of Rugby players and male voice choirs. Shirley Bassey was born in Tiger Bay just outside.

    Marie, you're not thinking about Cardigan (like in sweater) which sounds a bit like Cardiff are you?

    Splot! Pronounced Splow, rhyming with flow.

    He was created The Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester in 26 July 1958, though his actual investiture did not take place until 1 July 1969. This was a major ceremony, held at Caernarfon Castle in north Wales, a place traditionally associated with the creation of the title in the 13th century. (wiki, I copied that from, it was quicker than typing it). Nobody has been mad enough to ordain Charles, he'd only worry his Bishop with unconventional views. Besides, once he's crowned King he'll be in charge of the Church anyway.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    England's troubles will increase until the bishops open Joanna Southcott's box.
    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
