Marble cake!  It was only my good manners and lack of a cake fork that prevented me from dipping in.

The cakes!  I've never seen so many cakes in the same place.  Dreams are made of this.

Anglesey's Longest Running Show:

Quote
The 66th annual Llaingoch and District Horticultural Show will take place on Saturday 18 August at Holyhead High School, with this year’s event kindly supported by new sponsor housebuilder Anwyl Homes, existing sponsor Stena Line ferries and other local businesses and kind individuals.

Open to members and non-members alike, the annual summer show features more than 200 classes for flowers, garden produce, handicrafts and cookery.  It attracts novices and professional show-goers alike and draws entrants and visitors from across Anglesey and beyond including Ireland, Cheshire and even Scandinavia.

The standard of all entries at the show is extremely high, with winners’ trophies and medals much coveted by all entrants.  As in previous years, local MP for Holyhead Albert Owen will officially present the prizes.

I'm really hoping to make this, you?

No change on the marina situation. I suppose all the insurance companies are trying to find a way not to pay out.

Ulysses ferry is in hospital in Belfast with a broken prop shaft. Not an easy job apparently, will take another 2 weeks.


The Marina is now done as much as it will be.   That pontoon will not be replaced unless it's by one that isn't made of polystyrene.   It's clean now and all the wreckage has been removed from the sea bed.

Ulysses had it's prop shaft replaced then when it was on sea trials the bearings went, and damaged the hull hence why it is now back in dry dock.

That sounds lovely.  I saw an article on fb about it but can't find it now. The park was always lovely during the summer as a child and teen, we spent hours there.

Been down Caergybi for the last week.

P.Daf really quiet during the week, mental at weekends. Had kayak out and did some snorkelling. On Friday, Sister and her fiancé came down and put their boat in at Trearddur Bay so we had a day pleasure cruising, fishing (caught nothing) and then had a barbie on the beach. Other holidaymakers looked on, jealous like!

Plas Road has been closed for the last few days due to grass fires. Fire engines have been seen all around the town and Trearddur filling their tanks as there are no hydrants on Plas Road. Apparently the Mountain is now also on fire. On the way home last night, 2 more tenders were on their way down from Bangor.

loving this world cup and think maybe best one i've seen so far, better if Wales had qualified but don't forget the ladies team is still in with a chance and they good to watch also


Mmmm.  I believe Italia 90 is the best one I have ever seen, followed by USA 94.   That said, this one was dire until the Quarter Finals started and since then has been riveting.
