Greetings from the little town of Ilkley in the north of England. Ilkley is the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. The more senior among you might remember that the Dales were the setting for a long-running PBS series about a country vet, All Creatures Great & Small. Others will simply have to take my word that the scenery all around is stunning.
“Why, Paul,” you might be asking, “are you visiting this beauty spot in the middle of winter?” The answer is simple: my sister and brother-in-law live here.
I brought along both a video and still camera to take pictures to share with you… but my technological incompetence and inability to get online for days on end has meant that I have had little to share with you… until now.
