Cawsando - 'pur da' means 'good snot' where 'pur dha' means 'very good' lol!

(Not a jibe - just brought a smile to my face)

And just what is wrong with "good snot"?
Everyone, Cornish or otherwise, has their own particular part to play. No part is too great or too small; no one is too old or too young to do something.

I can't imagine exactly what it means to have good snot...
depends what you want out of it, I guess...
Take my advice, I'm not using it anyhow.

Pur da! What we really want is all these Kernewek enthusiasts yn Kernow, with their entrepreneurism.

The Sowsnek continue to flood us with their rich and decrepid old.



Well when I was interviewed on ABC radio last year over the CNLA nonsense I was asked was I moving to Cornwall. I stated that I couldn't afford to live there, like most native born Cornish, and didn't have a Toorak or Rose Bay mansion to sell (2 very pricey areas in Melbourne and Sydney).

If I ever bought a lottery ticket and won I'd come during the northern summer! :-)

Hope to be in Kernow next August briefly, otherwise a few years later.

In Moonta next May for the Kernewek Lowender ... perhaps a Cornwall24 meet up at the Cornwall hotel!?

Seconded that! I have a feeling it's the only month of the year I'll be able to practice my Cornish on anyone.

Sounds Good. You might pick up a Cornish language class as well. They usually run one or two.

Yes but I haven't attended one. They might be of an "introductory" nature but if the demand is there I'm sure Bard Lillian would consider running a more structured and interactive session. No harm in asking. Be good if we could get a small group of interested participants together.

Good stuff. How is the family history thing going? Can put you in touch with some local historian volunteers who just about know it all as far as the Cornish at Moonta goes. Guess the Cornwall Hotel is the go.
