He is considered a treasure in this area of the state where he lived. We have actually had guests who were doing research and were interviewing him for his book. He did everyone in my town proud in 2007 when he turned down a White House invitation to march (actually ride) in our little hometown Fourth of July parade.

Glad they stayed in Wales. I do not need revenue that badly. I wonder if they are getting full rack rate per night.
