The Queen did her speech to the nation while wearing green

This has resulted in exactly what you'd expect

(collection of images follows, all showing the Queen photoshopped to be wearing various t-shirts)

Word of the Day: cylchynol 'circulating': geiriadur.ac.uk/gpc/gpc.html?c -- on this day in 1761, Griffith Jones, Llanddowror died, who set up thousands of circulating schools in Wales to teach people to read.

Today's numbers show a slight correction for a weekend lag, but still the trends are crossing, if this holds for another 48 hours or so I'd begin starting to think about planning to say we're over the hump

@jaz I was reading about you and what you do on Nation.Cymru. So I decided to enroll to Toots.Wales It's a great Site. My name is John Ward a Mechanical Engineer from Pontypridd. I Design Elevators all over the U.S. and all over the Globe.

@wardy Staten Island huh, do I know you from the New York Welsh group by any chance (I'm terrible with names so forgive me if I don't recognise the name)

Just a quick word on today's figures. The total of 6159 (increase 786) was only slightly above the 6142 projected on the average of the past 3 days. However, viewed in the context of the considerable suspicion over yesterday's 441 deaths, this is actually not a bad result. It's probably a correction, after the weekend.
The rate of increase averaged over the past three days continues to fall: 27.6% 26.4% 22.4% 19.1% 14.3% 12.6%

Today's figures:
Deaths today: 441
Total to date: 5373
For my discussion, see yesterday's comments, with increased emphasis.
However, I would note that today's figures are unexpectedly low, and I would not be surprised to see something of a correction tomorrow.

That last post with the quote was from this book. “Welsh Stick Chairs” by John Brown #wales #furniture #chairs It was republished by @lostartpress@instagram.com Discovered them here on Insta.
I could write a lot about the experience of reading this small book. But right now I’ll say I’m starved for knowledge and connection to my ancient homeland. In the 1670s-80s my relatives came to North America from Wales & England. Hard to know which part of th…

We mustered up the drive to head out for our Government Allotted Outdoor Exercise period.

This time we made our way towards the river and scanned it northwards, branching off towards the northern path that heads up Kendal Castle. More here iancylkowski.com/blog/2020/4/4 👍

A few years ago, my #bonzai #elm #tree was looking as though it was on its last legs, so to speak. However, after some #TLC it seems to be healthy again. It’s over two decades old.
