Well absolutely!!! One of my Gentlemans Clubs is known as the Womblers :-))

The first Wombles book - inspired by Beresford's young daughter mispronouncing "Wimbledon" as "Wombledon" - was published in 1968.

I was in Leeds a couple of months ago, no problems with Yorkshire, picturesque Dales, but a bit nippy in the winter! I'll give these trendy restaurants a pass if I may, most of them are just places for the in crowd to be seen in, the food is overpriced and bad value for money. Why do all Celebrity chefs have to act like precocious teenagers? If the luvvies didn't fete them, they'd soon disappear. And that would be good news.

There used to quite a few on the A1, A1/A66 junction had a very good one, and the A6, but don't use those roads much these days.

From the second link:

The award comes less than a year after Yorkshire won the right to host the start of the Tour de France in July next year, with the race's Grand Depart taking place in Leeds.

Erm, what?

Am i missing something here? What is the Tour de France doing in Leeds? I was never much cop at geography but even i can spot a discrepancy of 300 miles.

Good news only, eh? My keyboard and mouse (HID...lol) abilities are much quicker than what they were, a month ago, although the hands still lag quite a way behind the brain at times. I'm told that this will improve and that they (the quacks) have pretty good expectations for me. With luck, near normality is a distinct possibility....hopefully, before my anticipated early retirement, next year. My sincere thanks for all the kind thoughts sent to me.

My kindest wishes and hopes, Iona
