Born and raised in the deep sea fishing port of Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire, I am am proud to hail from what was the largest county of England with a reputation for producing straight talking, down to earth people. Having pursued my education and early career in London, I now reside in the Chicagoland area of the USA.
The name of this blog is derived from my heritage, Tyke, a term used to refer to those from Yorkshire and US, where I have spent almost half my life.
Wherever you live you never let go of your roots and I remain keenly interested in events in my home town, my country of birth as well as my adopted country.
I hope you enjoy it and I welcome and encourage comments on my individual posts.
