A Happy St. David's Day to you wherever you may be. 
I'm currently drawing a jam jar with these shovels in that my grandfather made. He was a proud miner and after retirement would still fill his days with coal-related paraphernalia. I'm proud of this industrial heritage and can't imagine what a hard job that was. I'll grumble sometimes that my body hurts. 
In the local colliery of where I was raised, a world record was broken. In 1909 the pit mined 4,020 tons of coal, by hand, in a single day. Job done! 🛠
