It is a big day for Swansea, the Swans' first home game in the Premiership. To mark the occasion we have our trademark August rain, but also the prospect of Max Boyce kicking off the game with a rewritten version of 'Hymns and Arias'. The original lyrics are here. I cannot wait to hear the revamped version.
Sunday sees a gathering of a different type with a floating flotilla protesting against the closure of Swansea Coastguard Station. I will be there but plan to keep my feet on terra firma.
