Without Prejudice

     The first refugees from Syria will arrive in various parts of Wales very shortly.   They will arrive before Christmas, or so I’m told.

     That’s a good time for them to get here:  it’s just when all the Christians (and a fair few non-Christians!) will be celebrating the birth of the Christian religion’s founder.   And he preached loving one’s neighbour.

     So, when you hear all the anti-Muslim propaganda, ignore it.   Love these people who need help.   And show ’em that your Christian beliefs are strong.

Batten Down The Hatches – Again!

     His name is Desmond this time.   He’s going to bring Wales 80 mph winds . . . any minute now.

     A bunch of politicians got together to talk about Climate Change this week.   With the damage which this crop of gales has brought – certainly to our land – it’s to be hoped those chatting politicos get cracking to curb and change things.   And financial profit should not be a consideration.

     Take care, Wales – these winds are going to cause TROUBLE.   So I hope you’ve prepared your homes and yourselves for future emergencies.

The Sky’s The Lim . . .

     . . . no – that would be a cheap joke!

     However, it’s important to mention that Snowdonia has achieved “Dark Sky” status, and will receive help in protecting that status.

      I’ve stood high on mountain sides up there at night.   A wondrous, clear view of the sky at night in that dark, away-from-big-towns area.

     So spread the word.   Snowdonia, like the rest of our nation, needs all the visitors it can get.   Much of our Welsh economy depends on the holiday-trade.   The more visitors we get, the more secure are our communities.

     So a Dark Sky can bring light relief.

About Archie Lowe

Though not born in Wales, I have lived and worked here for many years now. I love the place and love that mercurial thing "Welshness". I have been accused of being "a Taffophile" - which is pretty near the truth. The question I ask whenever some idea comes up for the whole of the UK is: "What's in it for Wales". I believe in an independent Wales and am so pleased that our Assembly is a big step on that road.
