I keep wondering why God would choose Uddersfield when he could have anything he wants? Maybe it's a challenge. There are more lost souls to save than anywhere else ?

I was as usual ahead of you in meaning after her flight, clearly southerners and ex BBC presenters have difficulty in keeping up with true northerners.

Oh dear, us northerners (at leat the rump) will be so insensitive in a few generations that we won’t know/care if it’s raining or not.
I knew there was an upward spike in the north in height/weight and other desirable traits about 180 years ago called the bicycle effect. The widespread availability of cycles enabled youngsters easier access to adjacent valleys and villages so increasing the gene pool of the region.
Looks like this is the bicycle effect in reverse.

We used to store our caravan in the back garden of our old house, pre 1982, and kept it for a while alongside the garage in our current house, happy days.

Spent 10+ years doing mainly Cornwall and Devon with forays into Pembrokeshire, Southwold, Anglesay and the Cotswolds. We had lots of wonderful holidays while our boys were growing up.

I was reading in this mornings paper that the Royal Navy's oldest class of frigates only spend 13 weeks each at sea every year, the rest of the time they are undergoing repairs or their crew are being rested.
Maybe the Navy should sub-contract their operations to P&O, they manage to run their ships 365 days a year, with only a 2/3 week refit every 5 years.
