Have you seen the film The Age of Stupid? It follows several different people's stories, including a man who is trying to set up a wind farm against serious local opposition - and one of the main opponents is a woman who comes across as completely barking mad!
The premise of the film is of someone in 2050, when the planet is trashed, looking back to now and asking "How could we have been so stupid?"
(Which is a long way from castles in Wales, I'm afraid!)

That may very well be, Eigon, but this friend is supposed to be really interested in history and know lots about it. He should've known the difference. :p :p :p :p

In that case, Rowan, give him hell!

Well here's a quick update. I discovered that Shutterfly allows unlimited storage space for free, so I'm uploading allllll of my photos there so everyone can see them all and not just some of them.

Also, if you'd care to take a look at my YouTube channel, I've got one of my videos posted there and will add the others soon. You can ignore the puppy videos too. :p
