In the books of James Herriot, the hospitality of the people in the Dales is a frequent subject. Whatever the hour of visit, there is always food and tea available to the tired vet.
Times surely change, but the people here still seem really friendly. During yesterdays match in the local pub, local delicious food was brought to the table free of charge. The clientele at the pub also seemed more like a family than customers.
I like the dialects spoken around here. Sometimes a wee bit hard to understand, but surely different from the English they taught me at school.
Reds lost yesterday at Stamford Bridge, but there is still everything to play for at Anfield.
