We all have those moments when we do or say something foolish or non-sensical. I’m just curious as to what you call yourself or others. I tend to use Dipstick. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

For those of us not Welch can we have a translation of "tipyn bach" I know the word "cariad"

Certainly, I apologise for not putting it in at the the time and I’m sorry if anyone feels/felt excluded, it wasn’t intentional.

Tipyn bach 😜 - A little bit 😜 (a little bit of a dipstick/numbskull etc), cariad means love.

To Zoonie - I wrote Shwmae (hi), iawn (I’m good) diolch (thank you) a ti ? (and you).

I speak better french than welsh though!! πŸ˜ƒ

Casnewyd is Newport

Caerdydd is Cardiff

Coffi is coffee

Te is Tea

Cymru am byth means

I just asked my Hubby about

TWP..He can speak Welsh a bit more than me,because his Granddad used to speak it He said Yes TWP means

a fool , foolish etc..

On other rarer occasions...... Well I'm afraid that just isn't printable.

I call it my broken brain. I would never refer to myself in a negative way.. My brain broke all on its own. I always place the blame on my broken brain,

Numpty is the favourite in our family Narwhal! πŸ˜„

Yes - these comments are usually made and received with a sense of humour, and it is generally appreciated that the elderly have "senior moments" sometimes.

My pacemaker helps... but I struggle with hypertension and vascular cognitive impairment.

I said that to veterans dongo

The subject is that of the protection of masks during this pandemic or any other contamination to our respiratory system for that matter. The powers that be say that no masks will protect the 'general' public but I wish to draw their attention to what it says on the packet by the manufacturers of masks is that N95 will filter 95% of contaminants

of a certain size and a higher number after the N will filter the higher designated amount of contaminants from the air.

A person asking does a mask protect me should be able to see that there is quite good protection on the proviso they choose the correct mask and of course wear it so that it is air tight to the face.

I've said it before, and hope it does not offend but is a constructive criticism in that tashes and beards or stubble of any kind are out of the question when it comes to the sealant qualities of any respirators or masks of any description.

One thing I would oppose is the stupidity of people who advertise 'masks do not protect' is that any mask is better than none.
