Thank you, John, for your birthday wishes. Yes, we are so thankful for the Idaho Humanities Council, The Idaho Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment of the Arts. Until you are involved in an undertaking like ours, you don't appreciate or understand how important they are. We couldn't put on our little festival without their support.

Hi from Colorado! I've had the pleasure of visiting Wales a few times and spent quite a bit of time in Bangor in the town records office.

thanks JOhn, no, I have not had a chance to get a copy of your book. Will make it a priority. I have two books ready right now. "Wales and the Welsh: An Alphabetical Guide," and "Britain; the Rise and Fall of an Empire." Peter

Wasn't looking for apology nor expecting one; just a little inside joke for the two of us. Did you ever play in the Lavabo Bowl? Sounds (pun untended) like you're doing what you want to. Hwre!

Bore da, John. Yes, it seems we have at least as much in common as possible between Nashota and SWTS persons! Are you still a parish priest and rural dean? Or are you now a full-time writer? Hwyl am y tro a phob bendith.

Thanks for the information, John. I'll no doubt refer to that at some point. I only learned about the practice from Traditional Fishing in Wales by Emrys Evans, which contains a page-long description of welsh trout wells. According to this book, it was normal for the trout to live in the wells for half a century.Bendigedig!

John,To answer your question (from memory, as I've somehow deleted it) ethnobotany is the study of interactions between people and plants. For example, I'm learning about hazel, currant, elderberry, sloe plum and similar culturally important species by growing them. In the future I would LOVE to share seeds and plants with Americymru members. Your research on springs looks fascinating, I'll look forward to checking it out. I'm fascinated by the longstanding tradition of trout in holy wells and their symbolic significance.Heddwch
