1852
Brecon

Multiple newspapers carried coverage of a murder charge against a Brecon farmer, Thomas Phillips of Pentrenaboth, who was accused by one of his servants of feeding a newborn baby to a pig in 1850. I'm including it here though because of some of 24 year old Hugh Williams' (the accuser) testimony on the stand. He was cross-examined 'at considerable length' about his belief that a ghost had recently carried him away many miles across the country.

Rather than deny it, Williams 'gravely admitted [it] to have been the fact, much to the surprise and astonishment of all present.'

The Brecon Gazette (03/04/1852) went into the most detail. This ghost, in addition to frequently carrying him off, apparently haunted Williams in various forms 'until he had obeyed a mandate given him to throw a pair of pistols, taken from an old mansion-house, into the river Usk.' The story likely played its part in the jury aquitting the prisoners without hearing any of the defence witnesses.

Sennybridge

The Welshman (24/09/1852) told readers that they had heard reports of the the return of the Sennybridge ghost. Sadly that is all we'll ever know of the affair as, the paper haughtily stated, they were not about to insult their audience's common sense 'by inserting a farrago of nonsense concocted and promalgated probably by some idle dreamer, or intoxicated idiot.'

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
