Nah then everyone, just to say hello from God's own county, the largest (and best!) in England.

It dunt matter if thas played Fred Flintstone, Tolkien's Boromir, the leader of the Hawkmen of Mongo, Gandhi, Quasimodo (and directed Night of the Hunter), the best of The Avengers girls, the Captain of the Enterprise, James Bond's boss or composed his best film scores, it's still a day worth celebrating.

I shall be drinking soley Yorkshire beer today and eating our famous delicious pudding on my Sunday dinner.

HYD, and greetings Paul and other fellow Yorkshirefolk. Today’s a day to show our famous generosity and make all the good people of the world honorary Yorkies for 24 hours.

You too can experience the pride and passion felt by such luminaries as Peter O’Toole, David Hockney, the Brontë sisters (and Branwell), Barbara Hepworth, Frankie Howerd, Jess Ennis (in fact most medal-winning TeamGB Olympians), William Wilberforce, Jake Thackray, Kalvin Phillips and several others.

But enjoy it today, for tomorrow you go back to being ordinary smile

OK. Even I know of Peter O’Toole, the Brontë sisters and Frankie Howerd but not all the rest on Gilligan's Island you mention. Ah, and I have been to the famous cathedral and also indulged in the famous pudding on several occasions. Oh for the days of youth & a BritRail Pass. cool

But enjoy it today, for tomorrow you go back to being ordinary smile

Yorkshire = Brigadoon? Who knew?!

I'm American, so all I know of Yorkshire is that it's a third-world country (Monty Python's Meaning of Life) where everyone says "anyroad" instead of "anyway" (All Creatures Great and Small). Amiright?

Well, I live in the Barnsley area of (South) Yorkshire, so as York is fifty miles away I'm not close to The Shambles, but we do have a Shambles Street in town. But third world? Pah, Taco Bell and KFC are spitting distance from Shambles Street. Hang on, maybe you have something there.... Or 'summat' as we say in Barnsley.

But I admit we do often say "anyroad"... So tha' reight theeer. (Translation: you are right there. Tha' is a corruption of thou as in thou art - only county that still speaks Shakespeare's english!, and reight rhymes with 8).

It appears that in the latter half of the 1940s he had an Airedale Terrier called Tomka. As that particular breed originated in Yorkshire your sun-crazed mind wasn’t too far off.

Oh, I understood perfectly. As I mentioned, I've seen enough episodes of All Creatures to understand Yorkshirese without translations!

Had a lovely week in the Moors a few years ago, and then drove to Masham and stayed there for a week. The one thing I remember is the size of the food portions. Everything was super sized. Adam from Man vs Food would really struggle with the Yorkshire nosh. I was struck also that every place we ate had sticky toffee pudding......supersized of course.
