Nar then, I'm in a new job, (basically my old job, but more specialised & a bit more brass) and I've got me mits on a computer.

Bit like catching up wi Eastenders getting back wi the Catters, not seen a few episodes, but soon got back into gist of things.

So the countdown is on f' Moor & Coast shower bloc sessions, look forward t' seeing as many of yer there as Poss.

Cheers f' now

Johnny in OKC - definitely Yorkshire.
In fact a friend sings a song about a Yorkshireman fighting at the Alamo. At least I think that's what it's about.
The line goes "Eh Up Santy Anna - They're killing your people below!"
Quack!

As in :-
(from Here...)
A hundred and eighty were challenged by Travis to die
By a line that he drew with his sword as the battle drew nigh
A man that crossed over the line was for glory
And he that was left better fly
And over the line crossed 179

Hey Up Santa Anna, they're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know
And remember the Alamo

Jim Bowie lay dying, his blood and his powder were dry
But his knife at the ready to take him a few in reply
Young Davy Crocket lay laughing and dying
The blood and the sweat in his eyes
For Texas and freedom no man was more willing to die

Hey Up Santa Anna, they're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know
And remember the Alamo

A courier came to a battle once bloody and loud
And found only skin and bones where he once left a crowd
Fear not little darling of dying
If this world be sovereign and free
For we'll fight to the last for as long as liberty be

Hey Up Santa Anna, they're killing your soldiers below
So the rest of Texas will know
And remember the Alamo

I rally to no flag, stand not for the National Anthem and I don't eat Hot Cross Buns with pink crosses on them!

I will admit the day is glorious, beautiful blue skies, little fluffy clouds and the trees bursting into buds of lime green, butter yellow and coppery red.

Makes me wish I wasn't indoors, tending to a limp Limpit who is hotter than any spring day and pinker that any carnation.

OKC Oklahoma City thanks for that!
Last of the Summer Wine is based in Holmfirth, which is in West Yorkshire and some 14 miles from my home town of Barnsley, and just a few from Huddersfield
However many of the actors are not from Yorkshire and some of the mock accents are a bit suspect to say the least!
Nowt! is a particularly suspect word and is not the true pronunciation in either Yorkshire or Lancashire!
I hope you can enjoy the scenery/moorland, which can be very bleak in winter
Holmfirth has enjoyed greater prosperity due to Last of Summer wine and much of the property has been refurbished and become desirable, Folk fest started 26 years ago takes place next week and has a fine Real Ale pub called 'the Nook'

Seems like it's always summer in Last of the Summer Wine.
That's why it looks so pretty.

"Nowt" means naught or zero, nothing. What do they say
if it isn't nowt?

Wonder if any other language has as many distinct
dialects as our wonderful English.

Johnny in OKC, it's the nuance or pronunciation of the word Nowt used by actors who don't come from Yorkshire that I am referring to

TV directors have standardise the pronunciation because, presumably, the actors have difficulty with the local pronunciation
