    Barnaby Bear goes to Yorkshire.

    I knew there was a reason why i started that "where are your band from" poll ages ago- and this is it! Tmp is crammed full of Yorkshire folk and i could really do with your help in educating us Southerners to the highlights of Yorkshire!

    I am planning on carrying out my geography assignment while im up in yorkshire next week, i have to make my own "barnaby bear" big book and therefore i'm trying to collect as much information as possible about the place to go in it!

    I know we are deffinately going to York, the North Yorkshire Moors, Scarbrough, Leeds and Hudds, So if anyone has any information on those places, particulary historical/geographical stuff or knows of any good websites, etc it would be very helpful

    Oh and i'm determined to get a picture of the bear with a brass band!

    I'm sure John would not want his website crashing by us Yorkshire folk putting on a list of what's good about Yorkshire! And I think Emley would be willing to pose for a photo with Barnaby, I'll have to remind them all to "do" their hair etc etc.

    So other than bigger the biggest county in Britain what more do you need to know?

    Might be nice to know if that was actually meant to make sense or not?!

    Hmmm! can see that i will have a lot of educating to do myself!

    I think the bear needs to wear a black bow tie in the photo, to show he's getting into the spirit of things, and i reckon he should be "holding" a cornet in the pic.........oh crawf!.......pretty please can i borrow your cornet

    Hmmm, think i could possibly be getting far too into this!.....but i could be worse i suppose, my housemate just suggested i get barnaby bear a coat as it will be cold in yorkshire!

    I can't help with the Yorkshire bit, but we took Barnaby Bear to Paris a couple of years ago if you ever want to do a follow up!
    We have pictures of Barnaby Bear at the Eiffel Tower, eating a baguette, at the Louve, at Notredame etc if you ever need them, just ask!

    I'm sure something could be arranged! It's normally only podgy, balding, beer swilling thirty-somethings that get to hold my instrument tho!

    Errmm - just what is going on at band while I'm away - the mind boggles!!!

    Hope Barnaby enjoys his Emley experience - why not take him skiing at Xscape - real snow all year round in Yorkshire!

    So what's the guy at the front who keeps waving at me here for?????

    Skiing does sound like fun, but i currently cant walk on my foot and am trying to avoid being put on crutches for next week so i don't think skiing would really help that to much!

    If you are volunteering to take the bear skiing tho it would be a different matter entirely

    Crawf- ummm, enough talking about yourself, can i borrow the cornet!
