    Last Thursday I spent a very enjoyable 30 minutes in the company of Manic Street Preachers' Nicky Wire and Sean Moore, talking not about their new album, Postcards From A Young Man, but about 10 of their own songs - songs which mean something to the band.

    You can listen to...

    With Ryder Cup fever approaching, I thought I'd look for a nature angle on this year's tournament and golf courses in particular.

    Traditionally, golf courses don't have a particularly good reputation for being wildlife friendly - mainly due to the amount of pesticides and water used to keep the greens...

    Simon Rolfe took these strange cloud pictures in the skies over Sychdyn in Flintshire recently and e-mailed me to find out more.

    These clouds are actually known as Fallstreak Holes and I've actually blogged about them before.

    If you spot any unusual cloud or weather formations in the sky, please...

    I spent Friday at the awe-inspiring edifice to Welsh artistic expression...
