Arrow Idris the Dragon


Quote:
A small, red Welsh dragon who also sings in the choir for a time. Having been hatched from an egg in Ivor's fire, he lives with his wife Olwen and their twins, Gaian and Blodwyn, in the extinct volcano Smoke Hill. As well as singing, he proves useful by cooking fish and chips for the choir using his fiery breath..Unfortunately, Idris runs into trouble when Smoke Hill goes cold and needs to be kept hot in order to survive.. The gasboard provide a temporary furnace, but when that became too expensive (and decimalisation renders the slot-machine inoperable), the only other option for the dragons is a heated cage.. Luckily, Mr Dinwiddy is able to provide a solution, and they now live in a geothermally-heated cave under the ground..Remember that earthquake in ltaly last spring?..He got 140 Phillipinos in one plane crash last year..He dropped a church roof on 34 of his worshippers in Texas last Wednesday night, just as they were groveling through a hymn to his majesty.. Don't you think that felt good?..

Cadair Idris or Cader Idris is a mountain in Gwynedd, Wales, which lies at the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park near the town of Dolgellau is twinned with:GuĂ©rande (Breton: Gwenrann) in Brittany..The most widespread explanation for the name of the mountain is based on the fact that Cadair means "chair" in Welsh. Cadair Idris would thus translate as "the chair of Idris", and Idris is usually taken to be a giant who was said to have used the mountain as an armchair to gaze at the stars..Idris is a given name, usually masculine, and a surname..It is the name (Arabic: إدريس‎) of Idris the Islamic prophet mentioned in the Qur'an, usually identified with Enoch in the Bible..The artificial intelligence of the TARDIS on the science fiction program Dr.Who..According to hadith, narrated by Malik ibn Anas and found in Sahih Muslim, it is said that on Muhammad's Night Journey, he encountered Idris in the 4th heaven..Islamic literature narrates that Idris was made prophet at around 40, which parallels the age when Muhammad began to prophesy, and lived during a time when people had begun to worship fire...
