Great to have awakened a few of you Yorkshire folk over the olympics,didnt we do well!!Yes we get all over the world even to Italy. Hear in wonderful Abruzzo, the countryside and its people remind me of Yorkshire,when getting to know my neighbours,at first they were very cautious,just like us Yorkshire folk, but once they get to know you, i would say you have a friend for life!! Meraviglioso Abruzzese and Yorkshire folk.

Great side distraction regards the Yorkshire input re. medal table, even if the best thing that ever came out of Yorkshire is the road to Derbyshire....oops, that will upset th'apple cart. Only joking...as an adopted Yorkshire person (Northallerton) a great event shown on TV with Jessie Eniss in Shefful. What a great ambassador/ess for sport, let's just hope lots of young people follow her example. Nice little touch also, the Italian guy who won a medal in the shooting is from our village!

Off topic slightly...heard a rather disturbing comment on a T.V. program last night on BBC 4 about the Antarctic. Where Ranulph Fiennes was asked how people were chosen for his expeditions His quote was "We don't take dour people who don't forgive and forget, so we don't take Yorkshire people"  Fair comment or what?

Well Ram,al be damned,olas thougt Yorkshire was "Gods Own Country"now wiv gotten divine proof.

Yes, Yorkshire certainly punches above its weight when it comes to Olympic medals. I have lived in sheffield for 34 years, and think of it as home. Seb - now Lord- Coe is from Sheffield, although I prefer lovely Jess Ennis. Sheffield boasts a thoroughfare called the Wicker which crosses the River Don- yes, you know, where t'water runs over t'weir. 

Hey up lass.  (Hello Karen)   Thas qualified afta alt em yers  thas a Yorkshire lass. Will afta luc ovat bridge wen as nex int Sheff like. Ta ta  frae now.
