  1. Employment played a big part in where people lived years ago, most of the work was in the mines, mills and factories of South and West Yorkshire with fishing in East Yorkshire. The Dales and other country area mainly agricultural work. Places like Sheffield,(Steel), Leeds and Bradford,(Textiles), numerous Coal Mines and Power Stations( my work area)in the county. With changing technology that is not necessarily the case anymore.
  2. To the East of the Dales are the Yorkshire Moors with Whitby on the coast, the valley in between is the Vale of York.(were we live), with the City of York the main place of interest. To the south of the moors are the Wolds ( Grandma's area).
  3. My Grandsons girlfriend lives at Google,( Goole), 😊
  4. At normal cruising speed even on a Transatlantic crossing I have never found it an issue, the problem arises if they have to make up time for any reason.
  5. I agree, the vibrations are very relative to speed, on some port intensive cruises you will never notice them at all.
  6. We spent yesterday afternoon doing exactly the same, but we did manage a trip to our local plant center. They had it very organized with strict society distancing and a one way system.
  7. This means that they are even more like our Magpie, they are always taking smaller birds particularly young ones at this time of the year.
  8. I Believe it was the Pied, I have just looked it up in my book of Australian birds. It looks and behaves very similar to our (Thieving )Magpie.
  9. Some are being repatriated to their home Countries but have families in other parts of the world. They have no idea when they will be reunited with Wife's/ Husbands and children.
  10. I well remember seeing those beautiful birds while visiting Queensland some years ago. Another Australia bird I remember was a Butcher bird(I think that's correct), one lived up to it's name by stealing a piece of steak straight from my Wife's plate during a barbecue.
  11. Just been reading on another site that 3 has yet unnamed cruise ships are to be laid up at a dock in Glasgow. Could this be all 3 Azamara ships?, sounds very possible.
  12. The ships are going to Glasgow for laying up, who knows how long it will be before they are ready to cruise again. The crew are dispersed all over the world and it will be a nightmare to reassemble then.
  13. You are correct, he loves to take his ships to visit the island. Some of Pursuits European crew are on Freedom of the Seas, awaiting flights home.
  14. I just reread the email and they are actually promoting all Azamara cruises for Oct, Nov and Dec 2020.
  15. Had a email only yesterday from a travel agent promoting the 3rd October cruises on Journey and Pursuit, wishful thinking?.
