Bring forth the catapults!

The Welsh countryside is littered with numerous castle ruins. They are not your typical invulnerable castle perched at the top of the cliff... they appear only in Lord of the Rings. Anyway, the one shown in the picture is the Skenfrith Castle in Monmouthshire, more correctly the ruins of it. It is apparently constructed in the early 2nd Millenium and is one of the series of three castle. The size is more of a fort rather. This one is set in the low grounds surrounded by several high hills. It must have been quite a task defending it back then.

Was forwarded this video clip on a QnA session for the selection of Miss USA. I cringed throughout the whole ordeal.

Will be leaving for New York tomorrow for a short trip. Thus will only be updating this blog only when I return a couple of days later. Counting my pennies in the meantime...
