Happy St Joe's Day!

It has a rather hollow ring, doesn't it? I feel sad that the Somerset saint's special day has been overshadowed in some quarters, but we still celebrate it in this house.

Or at any rate, at this desk.

But I don't want to be churlish. I'm half-Welsh, after all, and St Patrick - or Maewyn Succat, to his friends - is one of Wales's greatest cultural exports. So, let us raise a glass of metheglyn along with our pint of scrumpy, and blend the cries of "Cheers me dear!" with "Iechyd da!" in joyful harmony!
