Saint of the day: Welsh Saint Bueno was a tolerant chap who moved further into Welsh territory to avoid having to listen to English being spoken. His greatest achievement seems to have been restoring the head of a bride who had been robbed and beheaded by her new husband. Not one to take sides, Bueno also restored the head of the bridegroom after the bride's brother had caught up with him.
