Five images today. I snapped the picture of the brown cow yesterday morning when I went for a constitutional walk in the nearby Porter Brook Valley. I swear that that particular brown cow keeps following me around. On the same walk, I stopped near the alpaca farm on Fulwood Road to enjoy the view towards central Sheffield:-
When we left Northallerton, we made two or three stops before we reached our hotel in Darlington. Below is a picture of St Eloy's Church in Great Smeaton. The Jarrow Crusade marchers paused for lunch in this village on October 7th 1936. I only know this because I am currently reading a book about that famous poverty march - from Jarrow in the north east of England - all the way to London.
Finally to beer... My favourite bottled beer is, naturally, a Yorkshire brew. It is called "Black Sheep Ale". Its familiar label has recently had a major makeover. The old label is on the right and the new one is on the left. Surprisingly, this significant image change was not reported on any major news channels - including the BBC and CNN! Fortunately, the beer inside the bottle has not changed.
How now brown cow!ReplyDelete
Don't peep Black Sheep!Delete
Alan probably goes to the barber on Wednesdays...or to the pub to have a Black Sheep Ale.ReplyDelete
How now Brown Cow? You have a brown cow following you around...I'm beginning to think I have a large white tanker stalking me. Almost every time I go out I see the white tanker lurking...(there could be more than one white tanker, of course)!
It could be a sign from God.Delete
What does Alan do on Wednesdays? Everything he would otherwise have done on Saturdays, I expect.ReplyDelete
I don't like it when companies change labels on me. I must be getting old.
Why insert the word "getting" Jenny! HA-HA! You can't whack me when I'm 2762 miles away!Delete
I've been to the Black Sheep brewery in Masham for a tour, some years ago. One wonders sometimes why companies feel the need to change their label. Isn't their label what makes them instantly recognisable, with a certain image firmly anchored in people's minds? Unless they want to change their image for the better after a scandal or so, I don't see why they'd want to do that.ReplyDelete
Normally I am similarly conservative about such matters but in this instance I rather like the new label with its gold lettering. You are a very lucky young woman - having visited The Black Sheep Brewery!Delete
So that's why I couldn't see it on the shelves.ReplyDelete
It is more likely that you need a new eye test Sir Tasker.Delete
I swear I've seen that cow in your blog before, but now he's sporting a new hairdo.ReplyDelete
I know you are a Londoner ADDY but cows are in fact female (i.e. "she").Delete
Ooops. Yes. The recent heat has got to me!!Delete
The view toward Sheffield is a winner! Keep on walking. With a good eye you see many opportunities for photos.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your encouragement Red.Delete
I very much like the picture of the cow staring straight back at you. I think she is very attractive.ReplyDelete
I will try to fix you up with a date Philip.Delete
I DO like that new Black Sheep label. I guess Wednesday must be Alan's slowest day, and he decided to keep it to himself!ReplyDelete
