Web Design for Yorkshire Terriers

Not exactly what you might have been imagined when you ‘clicked’ and sorry if you were expecting pictures of Yorkshire Terriers rather than these pot dogs.

If you are interested in ‘Yorkies’ or  related local breeds  such as, Airedale, Working, Waterside,  Biewer, or Bingley Terriers. Or if you want to know  about the first registered Broken-Haired Scotch Terrier  which was ‘the foundation for the Yorkshire Terrier‘  and was called Huddersfield Ben born in 1865  then web searches will help you build up your knowledge and data base. If you want a web site to record you own pets pictures or boast about your breeding successes you might want to consider a cheap web site of your own.

On the other hand many people want to make pin money or a business out of their passion and hobby. To excel in any field you need to be found and recognised and for that a web designer might be able to put your venture on the right track. Sheffield has many good web designer businesses and digital media is a local strength.

You might expect the best web business for dog to be based in Barkisland.  Barkisland is a village in the civil parish of Ripponden, which is part of  Calderdale MDC  in the West Riding Yorkshire. Barkisland Hall is a grade I listed country house built for John Gledhill in 1638.  It was bought in 1967 by the friend of Harold Wilson,  Lord Kagan as the base to manufacture the Gannex raincoat.

Premiership Yorkshire Three Teams 2009/10?

It is 19th April and the top Yorkshire football teams are striving for Premiership football next season. Hull City AFC deserve to succeed after promotion last year and warming the cockles of so many hearts at the beginning of the season as they triumphed over complacent so called top teams. Unfortunately the great start faltered a bit in 2009 but I have every confidence that they will get the points to keep them up.
Sheffield United are in touch with an automatic promotion spot but have the play offs as a fall back position. Sadly Sheffield Wednesday can’t now get into a play off spot so ‘Come on The Blades the premiership needs you!’
Ten days ago it looked all over for Middlesborough but a doughty performance in the last couple of games gives them every chance of getting away from relegation. So my prediction is ‘3 Yorkshire teams in the Premiership’ but even if it is none the supporters will remain loyal.

Now it is off to the cricket with Yorkshire threatening to demolish Durham this afternoon! Well sporting enthusiasts live in hope.

 

Craven Cravendale and Milk

Well to me filtered milk is not milk and Cravendale is not a Dale. But Branders can’t be choosers – Oh yes they can and I suppose this is a canny name from Arla Foods the Leeds based dairy food specialists. Filtered milk has had ‘the bits taken out’ so is it still milk or white water? Then it is pasturised and bottled in an opaque container.  Generically, this type of product is known as Extended Lifespan (ESL) milk. Arla the owners of Cravendale are too craven to go the whole 9 yards and create UHT an even longer life milk.

Only thing is sure it is better than the old Sterilized milk that came in tall crown Stoppered bottles or that cloudy plasticated creamer you get in little plastic pots.

Craven District

The Craven Museum and the castle above in Skipton are well worth a visit followed by a cup of tea in the Organic cafe with real milk.
Craven District encompasses an area twice the size of Singapore and half the size of Luxembourg yet is one of the most sparsely populated areas in England to say nothing of being one of the most beautiful. One third of the Craven district is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Craven District Council seems to be appropriate for the rural community it serves with Environmental, Planning and Leisure services for Skipton, Settle, Bentham and Ingleton amongst others. Some Council services are provided by North Yorkshire County Council.
The Craven Herald and Pioneer is the useful local media with a wide ranging whats on events guide from Belly Dancing classes at Craven College to Boxersise and Yoga.
