    The Marbled White (Melanargia galathea) is a butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. Found across most of Europe (not Scandinavia), north Africa, and as far east as Iran, the late twentieth century has seen an expansion of its range in the UK.

    What no home work to mark

    Just what I wanted to know... have you two not got any home work to mark:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I know we can have a Welsh word a day.. mind you we have had two today...

    if it was Scottish it would also be four words.. mine is a pint:Blush:

    so how is Molsh and Osh .. that sounds like a generator to me... But great hounds...

    Recovered from Stratford? good weekend that was... so it is to day Pili Pala .. like me learning cords on my Ukulele..

    Hard at it writing reports Bob (well Glyn is lol). Staring at my piles of exam papers to mark and trying every way possible to avoid picking up the red pen.

    If you would like a Welsh word of the day I can do that lol. We can can for obscure ones and I could test you on what you have learnt (probably more than my bloody kids if their exams are anything to go by):Rofl1:

    Mwls and Osh are still recovering from their fab break and all the attention the received.

    Looking forward to hearing the Ukulele:BigGrin:

    I know one means dopy

    I even get the spelling wrong .. (Mwls).... is that the one that translates to dopy?

    So yes lets bring it on and have a Welsh word or two... try anything one (well twice if I like it).. but willing to have a go... if I am idiot enough to try and play the Ukulele at 62 then a few Welsh words are worth a shot at.
