Haha! I googled Eddie of Glamorgan, the first result was that of Eddie Izzard playing live in Glamorgan. I'll have to look a little deeper than a 'feeling lucky' button. :-)

EDIT: ah, Iolo!
"I knows all about folk songs. Hah! You think you're listenin' to a nice song about- about cuckoos and fiddlers and nightingales and whatnot, and then it turns out to be about - about something else entirely. You can't trust folk songs. They always sneak up on you." - E. Weatherwax

A hidden connection is stronger than an overt connection.

Perhaps someone could jump in with a short history of the Awen logo; at what point did the three ray logo start being used?

However, if I had just watched an episode of Eastenders that would have sounded more like this:
"Surculs, troyahngles, skweres, spots, eyeballs, there bluhdy everywhere, ain't they?! Nah, yer makin' it up mate, I cawnt see nuffin. Anyway, so who'sa cleva dik 'oo drew that Aarwin shape anyway?"

Quite close to the troof. Watch it, Treacle. :grin:

(I have no idea why the term treacle is used - I'm sure there's a cockney rhyming slang meaning behind it though.) Brilliant word translation there though...
"Don't look to the end of the rainbow for the pot of gold; it's already under your feet"
Enjoy this life. It would be a shame if we looked forward to the next, only to find we forgot the one before.
