  1. My sentiments are the same. My work involved visiting every mine in the North Yorks area and each of them had what you describe in that sentence, in particular careers for the not so gifted and educational opportunities for the ambitious. The sports and social side was superb. I look back acknowledging that times have moved on but at the same time privileged to have witnessed it and to have been a part of it.
  2. Sorry Trevor my mistake, I thought you meant the one where positive test cases were contacted directly for details of recent contacts.
  3. I have not heard of Track and Trace being scrapped. I know of 2 people working shifts on it for the last 2 weeks including today.
  4. I had a similar experience with The Proclaimers (memory says Sheffield City Hall 2010 ish), I went expecting mediocrity and was well entertained by 2 of the best singing, song writing musicians we have in Britain. The Wonderstuff backed on that day too, 'Size of a cow'. Included a lass who could play a violin better than average too.
  5. I would have to get my timing right in telling my Geordie mates that the Stotty was a Yorkshire product. When I am up there everything goes on a Stotty . Ham and pease pudding, Sausage and pease pudding or full breakfast are the favourites.
  6. Swallows have just arrived in the last hour where I work near Leeds. I always use St George’s day as a guide so 1 1/2 days early, not bad for a few thousand miles, no map, compass or diary. They have loads of energy left, feeding and checking out last years nesting spots.
  7. That's a nice piece of work and everyone will have their own list and reasons for their choices but I can't see anyone doubting the no.1. With sustained pace he would have been a 10. The best player that I have seen in a Rovers shirt.
  8. If you haven’t already done it, email your MP and encourage your work colleagues to do the same, they will have to react, adequate kit is essential in quelling the virus.
  9. I was going to post this one myself, he was fairly unknown to me at the time but I was impressed by the way he shrugged off tackle after tackle, one of the best tries I have seen. Luckily the Featherstone lads worked out that you couldn't tackle him from his waist up and employed the 'can't go without his legs ' approach.
  10. I have to agree, reminded me of pubs in the sixties/seventies when most had a Tommy and an Eddie and occasionally you could spot a pair of coppers in the back tapping drinks from the Landlord. If it tours again please give it a big shout on here. One for against the wall...…..posters who go off topic...……. I fall on my sword.
  11. 1978. 5th November. GB v Australia at Odsal . Included a tough as teak front row of Mills, Fisher and Lockwood and the best British standoff I have ever seen in Roger Millward. And of course a GB win. Fairbairn; Wright, Joyner, Dyl, Atkinson; Millward (captain), Nash; Mills, Fisher, Lockwood, Nicholls, Lowe, Norton. Subs. Holmes, Rose.
  12. Returning empty bottles to the shop/off licence/pub/club for refunds, give them to the council now for free.
  13. Not heard a cuckoo in my area for the last 3 years after never missing for as long as I can remember, are there other areas missing them.
  14. I have to agree on this one, the litter ejecting traveler/motorist is a big annoyance to me, the sight at the side of slip roads as I am queuing to get off is sickening. Always the same stuff, well known brand takeaway wrapping/boxes, ale cans and a lot of clear plastic bottles with orange juice in them although I am not sure that's what it is. On points on the license I know of one person who got £60 fine for throwing a cigar butt out in stationary traffic, done by a copper walking by. I will add my rant now - the 'environmentally confused' who pick up dog droppings from over the fields whe
