A member of the family has caught covid, despite two vaccine doses (mild symptoms). Then another member of the family said in comment "Oh, so Covid must still be around then".

We are not aware of how to bring back sound in the chat, as it relied on Flash Player.

There are some workarounds that might work, but are untested by us:

Good luck,

We can't post email addresses on here, it's just to prevent spam and things like that. If somebody does have that email address though, they can send you a Personal Message on here.

All the best,

The screenshots of the newspaper articles are copyrighted, so you cannot post them here on RootsChat unfortunatley.

Nowadays (I think) it would be Western Mail - mainly read by people in South Wales, and the Daily Post for North Wales.

Here is a list on Wikipedia - but presumably these don't list newspapers that have since ceased printing:

There would have been very small runs of newsletters and the like in small villages and towns too, often produced by chapels, in Welsh. Strangely enough, when we visited the library of FamilySearch in Salt Lake City years ago, I had a flick through a few - it was very odd seeing and reading Welsh in such an unlikely place.

We are still doing our Click and Collect for our groceries to get the majority of the shopping out of the way. Occasionally they will miss something (it was fresh basil last week), so we've been going into shops occasionally when they are at their quietest, and donning N95 masks.

So yesterday we went out early and went to Decathalon (a large sports shop). It was almost completely empty of people! I prodded an inflatable kayak and hit a punch bag (only to see a small sign above it saying that the punch bags were for display, and not for use), and checked out some waterproof coats. Sarah came out with a pair of waterproof walking shoes, and I just wished my feet were smaller, as they look very smart.

Sainsbury's car park was very empty so we went around there too. After we had got our shopping, we saw their cafe had a huge airspace and only a couple of customers in there. So we had a coffee in there. Our first time in a cafe since the beginning of Covid. It was very difficult drinking coffee through the masks, as they looked and worked like coffee filters so all we could taste was water (joke). But heh, it was worth it. We felt it was a really liberating experience.

Last week was my first time since before Covid that I went into a charity shop, and managed to buy a novel for 25 pence. Bargain.
