This has got to be one of the most adorable acts of anti-social behaviour I've ever heard of.

+Denis Jory are you behind any of this? I think an #ASBO is in order.
Grannies in Cornwall who cover the streets with knitted graffiti give their first television interview from their "secret" headquarters.

Gool Peran Lowen! | Happy St. Piran's Day!

So today, March 5th, is St. Piran's day. For the majority of you who will be unaware of this, St. Piran is the Patron Saint of my homeland, Cornwall. A tiny forgotten Celtic Nation in the far south-west of the United Kingdom. Cornwall is an area of outstanding natural beauty with a rich Celtic culture and history that still holds importance to this day.

Throughout my life I have lived with an identify crisis, the lack of an official nationality. Despite living in what is referred to as an English county, I have never considered myself English, even for the years as a child living outside of Cornwall.
I am Cornish through and through. And to strangers i.e.; those unlikely to know about Cornwall. I'm British.

But I intend on changing that, with what will hopefully be a series of posts over the next few days and weeks detailing information on Cornwall, Cornish identity & nationalism.
And after seeing "Happy St. Piran's Day" trending globally on twitter, I'm hopeful there will be some interest.

Kernow bys vyken.

They key to success with Kernow is the language. When the language is strong again in Kernow, then there will be a much more powerful force towards getting recognised and protected as a national ethnic racial group, and then in turn, that will strengthen the case for a proper separation from England, but that would only have to happen organically when the concensus in Cornwall was right. Personally i'd like to see Devon (Dewnans) rediscover their Celtic origins as the other half of Dumnonia, of which Cornwall was one half, and Devon start taking on the Cornish language as their own, which they used to speak 800 years ago. Then you'd have Dewnans and Kernow (Devon and Cornwall) fully separate from England as a re-built Celtic Dumnonia with Keresk (Exeter) as the capital like Cardiff.

I shall do my best to make today a wonderful & happy time for you. We've been through some hard times these past few months, you haven't deserved the things you have had to take recently.
But it will change, I have to remain optimistic for that. You're such a beautiful, kind & creative person you deserve to be able to live your life and talents to the fullest.

Happy Birthday +Adriana C. Marcos

Te amo...

Although use of the word 'piece' is disturbing in this context.
