My eldest daughter did her PhD at The University of Wales in Bangor, liked 
it so much there that she settled on the isle of Anglesey, she has been 
there 8 years or so now. It is a great holiday destination for us. 
Portmerion is not far, Snowdonia is great for hiking and a very beautiful 
place. My wife is a singer and conducts a successful Welsh Male Voice Choir, 
they are a great bunch and REALLY enjoy themselves.

Which European country has more Castles in it than any other?

I think the Lug Convention should be at the Hotel Portmeirion in
Penrhyndeudraeth, North Wales where they filmed "The Prisoner".

Brian will be #1

"For the script writers McGoohan wrote a 40-page "?history of the Village,
the sort of telephones they used, the sewerage system, what they ate, the
transport, the boundaries, a description of the Village, every aspect of it?

He also wrote and directed several episodes, often under various pseudonyms,
such as Archibald Schwartz"
