Well, aren't you just the sweetest thing! Thanks dear! And you're a wonderful moderator yourself! I am SO glad you're back! I've missed you tremendously! Glad to hear you had a good time! How is Adam? Sorry you didn't get to see much of Wales! That must have been a big disappointment! Looking forward to seeing some pics! Well, I'd better get off of here. Take care everyone and God bless!
Helo - Antwn ydw i, dysgwr Americanaidd o'r hen iaith. Ges i fy ngeni yn Virginia yn wreiddiol ond dw i'n byw mewn gorllewin canol bellach. Daeth fy nheulu ar ochr fy mam o Gearfili yng Nghymru. Ychydig o flynyddoedd yn ôl oedd fy mam yn cysylltu â pherthynas bell yng Nghymru a ofynodd am hynafiad. Ges i nghywrain am Gymraeg wedi dysgu am fy hynafiaid a bellach dw i'n ei charu.
Hello - I am Antwn, an American learner of the old language. I was born in Virginia originally but I live in the Midwest now. My family on my mother's side came from Caerfilly in Wales. A few years ago my mother was contacted by a distant relative in Wales who asked about an ancestor. I was curious about the Welsh language after learning about my ancestors and now I love it.

Figured it rude ta not post a helo here in the off-chance I ever find something to be replying/posting...
So with that said, helo.
As fer meself, 25 y/o Canadian Oilpatch worker... visiting Wales next year during Break-up (thus the interest other then some distant family conections.... Welsh/Scottish.)
I have been interested in Gaelic for some time, but lack the desire to spend cash on a corse I will have little time due to work, and even less natural abilty or smarts to make proper use of... Welsh, thanks to the BBC pages I stumbled on, should alow fer a foundation on which a basic comunication ability might grow in preparation fer me vacation.
Well, guess thats it. Might see ya around if I ever get past the shw mae... not holding me breath.
Howdy there Ride a Cowboy! Its great to meet you. Welcome to the Celtic Radio Forum. I hope you enjoy the music. I hope you enjoy this forum as well as the people here are wonderful. We already have a lot in common as I live in the western U.S. and my family has been in the oil business for years. I think you will find lots to learn on this site and many languages... I will be looking forward to learning more about you..
Hey Ride a Cowboy! So glad to have you here in the Wales forum! I have missed a lot the past week and a half while being in love.....good news is I am getting internet connectivity sometime within the next 7 - 10 days according to EarthLink, lol! So I will be on here every night! Yay! I can learn Welsh for real this time.
hi everyone - susanna, i wish you lived near me in nc. i'm slowly and sporadically trying to learn welsh, too, and it'd be great to have someone with whom to practice. one of my ancestors, william williams, was a miner in wales (who wasn't?) a couple of years ago i went over there and rode my bicycle around the country for five weeks. i'd go back in five minutes (mostly everything's already packed) if i could. there's no place on this earth i've ever been that's more beautiful.
every time i see an adult on a bicycle, i have hope for humanity.
