    You're a proper "Oscar Wilde" aren't you ? How I missed your talents when you were in the Doghouse ! They should have stuck you in Reading Gaol and chucked away the key.

    Wiki cites

    A470 road - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A470_road
    The A470 dual carriageway at Pontypridd. ... From Quakers Yard roundabout ( locally known as 'Fiddlers Elbow')

    Perhaps some Quaker's Oats will fix it for you or Go Ogle,while I am often wrong I aver this is no false wiki

    The southernmost point of the route is at The Flourish, Cardiff Bay, outside the Wales Millennium Centre. It runs up Lloyd George Avenue (this was previously Collingdon Road, and the A470 previously ran along the parallel Bute Street), and continues along St. Mary Street in central Cardiff. The road then becomes North Road, and after a tidal flow system running to Maindy and then goes over the flyover at the Gabalfa interchange of the A48 and the A469. It becomes an urban dual-carriageway numbered (470)B along Manor Way, with a 40 mph (64 km/h) speed limit and with many traffic-signalled crossings. It passes without interruption under the M4 at the giant Coryton roundabout. For the next 15 miles (24 km) it is a modern high-speed dual carriageway by-passing Tongwynlais and Castell Coch, Taff's Well, to Pontypridd. Heading north to Abercynon, the road now follows the route of the Taff Vale Railways Llancaiach Branch to Quakers Yard roundabout,[1] where it is joined by the A4059 from Abercynon, Aberdare and Hirwaun ; the A472 from Ystrad Mynach and Pontypool finally the A4054 from Quakers Yard, and Merthyr Tydfil.

    correction bonus hero

    Billionaire Poroshenko started his business by laundering the money of Soviet times’ administrators. He has never been an entrepreneur to start a business of his own.

    The story is invented. He made a head start thanks to the criminal connections of his father sentenced for large-scale theft in 1986. Having served the sentence, Poroshenko Sr. launched his own business making his son involved in the activities.

    The business was dirty, it all started with plundering state property by armed gangs. The Poroshenko family had plans to expand the activities beyond Ukraine. Tatyana Mikoyan, a well-known Kiev-based lawyer, remembers what the family did in Transnistria, «It was horrible back in the 1990s: illegal arms, prostitutes, drugs – all bringing profits to father and son».

    Poroshenko Sr. was awarded for his merits – in 2009 he received the Hero of Ukraine decoration bought for him by his son who paid to then President Yushenko, the Godfather to Petro Poroshenko’s children.

    Poor bugger ! You have failed to realise that I used the present tense in my post. The A470 dual carriageway placed the Merthyr - Cardiff road further to the west and by the creation of a link road "Fiddlers Elbow" was eliminated.

    So, there was a place called "Fiddlers Elbow" but it isn't there any more because of a new roundabout and a new bridge.

    Did your aunt have a bread knife which had a red handle ? If so she could be related to Margaret Rees who used to chew bread for our ducks.

    If you read the post I was referring to the erstwhile graffiti/
    So asked her she said in the immortal words of basil falwty.

    The site of 'fiddlers elbow noa aroundabout I learn is at 2.40 seconds in this spoof rap which is a little more cycnical than Free Ales or early To Jones,more the green green grass of skunk,enjoy if you can,town certainly cleaner than coal grime of 1960s,Oddly the men have emerged from the satanic pits and brought the devestation to the culture.The guy in the jam doesn't rmemebr clawing the bodies at Aberfan or the miners cough.The industrial revolution and its colliries were as dangerous then as Colombia RSA and China today.
    William Crawshay the baron of steel had words "God forgive me" enscribed on his grave at Vaynor,which we always pissed on as a ritual like all locals passing
