Back To My Roots

No matter how long I have been away, I am still drawn back to my Yorkshire roots. Whenever you tell someone in the U.K. that you are from Yorkshire, they immediately refer to images of bygone days. I remember when I returned to the north of England and my leaving card at work was full of references to flat caps, pit ponies and clogs!

Anyway, for those of you who are not from God's Own Country, as Yorkshire folk like to refer to it, I would like to bring your attention to the fact that today is Yorkshire Day. A time for celebration of all the great things about this beautiful county.

Wherever Yorkshire folk may roam in the world, they are still proud to call Yorkshire home.
Happy Yorkshire Day!
