a long wait, the new CD 'Twice Maybe Thrice' should be ready for

Coming Soon two
new regulalrly updated features - I am vaguely cognisant
with your abode (aka We Know Where You Live) and Change From A
vaguely cognisant with your abode (aka We Know Where You Live)
Each week, this
site will feature a photograph of one of the Big Shiny Cave
possee's homes. First to be featured will be the funny man
with the strange girl-like hair Johnny Howe!
Change from A
Each week, we
will give a selection of food from a well known diner in
Maesteg, and you have to work out how much change from a
tenner there would be. For example, if I bought a large doner
kebab, medium chips and an orange Fanta from Maesteg Charcoal
Grill, I would have £4.76 change from a tenner.
See, simple aint
it? The first diner to be featured will be the Coegnant Cafe
in Caerau, so get up there and check out those crazy prices!!!
Also there is
a new forum! click the word Forum on the right bar to go
