Today I met a Sicilian who knows something about Wales! [Other than those in my immediate circle, most know only that rugby is played there and, worse, think we are part of England.] I was buying stamps for Britain from the pleasant tobacconist lady nearby when she asked me where in Britain I am from. When I said, "Del Galles" her face broke into a broad grin and she exclaimed, "Come Tom Jones! Che uomo! Che cantante!" ["Like Tom Jones! What a man! What a singer!"]

So there you are, then, boyo; even in this little corner of the world, there are women in raptures over you!
