I was just watching the local regional news and Tredegar appeared on a caption for rainfall. The region Iím in is West Midlands!
Have you moved.
Apparently the rain washing down from Tredegar is causing a slow down on river drainage in England. I donít think the forecaster knew much about her geography.
Still set my heart alight.
I wonít try to produce an accurate phonic pronunciation of the town.

Sadly they are not weather forecasters but weather script readers.

Just sitting watching Tolkien: Designer of Worlds, when up pops the word Tredegar. As a young boy after moving to Birmingham he saw strange names on the sides of railway trucks. Tredegar being one of them. Discovering Welsh, introduced him to a new world of languages. So which part of Tolkienís work includes Tredegar?
He was a creative academic and used his lifeís experiences to write and produce language and ideas. He created characters associated with these imaginative worlds and how they interacted with each other.
I well remember Gareth James, Jamock to all, raving about Tolkienís work. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and Silmarillion. I wish Iíd paid closer attention to Jamock earlier than I did.
