  11. Dear Steve, Is This plagiarism? I report again that I have included an item you wrote concerning Langland Bay and it is featured on my website A HISTORY OF MUMBLES. I reported, or tried, to contact you, some time ago, asking you for permission to publish this item from your blog, but did not receive a reply. This week the site has a new article entitled -‘The Langland Bay Hotel Restaurant’ and your words describe it delighfully and are included. Look us up and send us more of ‘What you think,’ about Mumbles & Langland. ‘fair dinkum’


  12. Dear Steve, Scrap those earlier words, as my memory is wrong. I just looked at your article and the credit says ‘Steve also runs a blog, and this article is taken (with permission) from his site-‘ Woops. Right we are up to date and thanks again. John
