Brittany

the name from Cap Fréhel in Brittany where her parents had been born. Singing as Fréhel, at the Paris Olympia in 1924 she recaptured the former magic with a powerful performance and was soon headlining at the most popular venues in the country. Part of what is now referred to as the bal musette, Fréhel often sang accompanied by pipes and or an accordion player. On returning to England he was promoted, on 9 January 1778, to be lieutenant of the ''Princess Amelia'' guardship at Portsmouth. He wanted to be appointed to a sea-going ship but Lord Sandwich considered that he was bound by the terms of the surrender at Saratoga not to undertake any active service. Towards the end of the year he was appointed to the ''Licorne'', which, in the spring of 1779, went out to Newfoundland (Newfoundland (island)), returning in the winter, when Pellew was moved into the ''Apollo'', with his old captain, Pownoll. On 15 June 1780 the ''Apollo'' engaged a large French privateer, the ''Stanislaus'', off Ostend. Pownoll was killed by a musket-shot, but Pellew, continuing the action, dismasted the ''Stanislaus'' and drove her on shore, where she was protected by the neutrality of the coast. On the 18th Lord Sandwich wrote to him: ''"I will not delay informing you that I mean to give you immediate promotion as a reward for your gallant and officer-like conduct."'' and on 1 July he was accordingly promoted to the command of the ''Hazard'' sloop, which was employed for the next six months on the east coast of Scotland. She was then paid off. In March 1782 Pellew was appointed to the ''Pelican'', a small French prize, and so low that he used to say ''"his servant could dress his hair from the deck while he sat in the cabin."'' On 28 April, while cruising on the coast of Brittany, he engaged and drove on shore three privateers. In special reward for this service he was promoted to post rank on 25 May, and ten days later was appointed to the temporary command of the ''Artois'' (HMS Artois (1780)), in which on 1 July, he captured a large frigate-built privateer. Jean Langlais was born in La Fontenelle (La Fontenelle, Ille-et-Vilaine) (Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany), a small village near Mont St Michel, France. Langlais became blind due to glaucoma when he was only two years old, and was sent to study at the Institut National des Jeunes Aveugles in Paris, where he began to study the organ, with André Marchal. From there, he progressed to the Paris Conservatoire, obtaining prizes in organ (Pipe organ), which he studied with Marcel Dupré, composition (musical composition), which he studied with Paul Dukas. He studied also gregorian improvisation with Charles Tournemire. thumb right Radyr Twinning Fellowship monument (Image:Radyr Twinning Fellowship.jpg) Radyr is twinned with Saint-Philbert-de-Grand-Lieu, a town south-west of Nantes (Cardiff's twin city) on the southern shores of the Lac de Grand Lieu in Brittany, France which has over 300 hectares of vineyards producing Muscadet wine.

magic with a powerful performance and was soon headlining at the most popular venues in the country. Part of what is now referred to as the bal musette, Fréhel often sang accompanied by pipes and or an accordion player. '''Didyma''' (Greek: Δίδυμα) was an ancient Ionian sanctuary, the modern Didim, Turkey, Didim is located near the modern village of Yeni Hisar (Yoran), close to the Turkish resort of Altinkum, near the town of Söke in the province (Aydın Province) of Aydın. containing a temple (Temple (Greek)) and oracle of Apollo, the ''Didymaion''. In Greek ''didyma'' means "twin", but the Greeks who sought a "twin" at Didyma ignored the Carian origin of the name. ''Didyma'' is akin to ''Idyma'' in Caria, and ''Sidyma'' in Lycia, Joseph Eddy Fontenrose noted (Fontenrose, "Zeus Didymaeus", ''Transactions and Proceedings of the American Philological Association'' '''63''' (1932, pp. 245-255) p 251). Next to Delphi, Didyma was the most renowned oracle of the Hellenic world, first mentioned among the Greeks in the Homeric Hymn to Apollo, Fontenrose 1932:245 demonstrates that a "Zeus Didymeus" that was mentioned once, by Nicander, is a phantom based on a merely geographical epithet: the Zeus who shared honors of patronage at Didyma, though not in the Didymaion itself, was actually Zeus Soter, "Zeus the Saviour". but an establishment preceding literacy and even the Hellenic colonization of Ionia. Mythic genealogies of the origins of the '''Branchidae''' line of priests, designed to capture the origins of Didyma as a Hellenic tradition, date to the Hellenistic period. H. W. Parke, "The Temple of Apollo at Didyma: The Building and Its Function" ''The Journal of Hellenic Studies'' '''106''' (1986, pp. 121-131) p 123.

and then to Russia where she remained for more than ten years. Lost in a world of alcohol and drugs, she returned to Paris in 1923 to a shocked public that saw the wasted shadow of the singer they had known and loved. She then signalled a new beginning by switching to the stage name "Fréhel", taking the name from Cap Fréhel in Brittany where her parents had been born. Singing as Fréhel, at the Paris Olympia in 1924 she recaptured the former magic with a powerful performance and was soon headlining at the most popular venues in the country. Part of what is now referred to as the bal musette, Fréhel often sang accompanied by pipes and or an accordion player.

It has to be noted that in 2004, the head coach, Aleksandrs Starkovs – one of the essential pillars of the club – left Skonto FC by accepting a proposal to work at FC Spartak Moscow, at that time champions of Russia. The leadership of the team was entrusted to Jurijs Andrejevs, his long-term assistant, but after the loss against Rabotnicki, of the Republic of Macedonia, Skopje in the UEFA Champions League qualification tournament, he resigned from the post. Jurijs Andrejevs was replaced by Paul Ashworth, who had previously worked with FK Ventspils and FK Rīga in the Latvian Higher League and the Russian Premier League club FC Rostov. In some eastern European countries, such as Ukraine and Russia, "Ikra" also refers to an eggplant or squash spread which is often called "poor man's caviar."
