East Lothian's day in the spotlight comes to an end so here's a Zoe in Dunbar Garden Centre car park. DBC has some new "Fast EV Chargers..gratis I believe is the intention, but just over the road to the ASDA and Marston's Pine Martin where they do a very nice rotisserie chicken, is an Osprey Rapid Charger. If you come down the A1 or up it you will see the large Dunbar Bear, ( a tribute to John Muir) and the offerings for the quick stop off.

Maybe above any other County in the United Kingdom, surely more contibutors than Mick and myself can make a contribution to Yorkshire's Day-ish in the Spotlight especially when for our discussions today is the day Middlesborough can be covered as part of the historic County. :-D

Nope. Got nothing to offer for Yorkshire. Does anything interesting happen there?

Lets kick off the positive with a bit of Chris Rea son of Middlesborough. He has a tremendous catalogue of songs. Steel River is very evocative of the area but I've always liked "Stainsby Girls"

A minor 'claim to fame' is that my wife knew Chris Rhea. She worked for an ice cream company that bought some products from Rhea's and she often ordered from him.
Didn't like him.

As Victor Meldrew might have said "I don't believe it!" FCF avid readers may have come across several of your posts about Whitby!


Discovery of the day....up to today, I have spelt Middlesborough incorrectly for years and years. looks like its Middlesbrough :-D

Staying in the North of the County, and Yorkshire's least in the normal spotlight Area.

Yorkshire will have many area vehicle reg codes, but for me I will attempt to find a suitable vehicle image for one of the Middlesbrough ones DC or XG
Middlesbrough pre-74 Vehicle Reg Area Codes<br />and The Transporter Bridge

Went on that bridge when I was about ten.
Been intending to repeat it ever since.
Shameful as we drove past it every weekend for a couple of decades.

Sold to America now though :)

I'm never quite sure, is Yorkshire better than Lancashire, or is it the other way 'round ? 8-[
