A howling gale, fallen petals, soggy estate that thinks it's November. Good morning bloggers. here we go again, turn the heating on and gather round. The weather man has just used words like 'unusually windy' 'torrential downpours' and 'this is terribly depressing and I want to move to Florida'. For the moment it doesn't matter too much as most of us haven't had the summer holiday but July will start to get serious. I suppose the exam sufferers will be pleased as it isn't stiflingly hot but for the rest of us, the reappearance of big coats and hats is a tad gloomy. At least there is Radio 2 to keep us all cheerful. There's no Greece-style plan to shut us down so let's fire up another Drivetime and dance and strut in a way that will make our kids howl with embarrassment. Nigel can offer us Lime Marmalade, Rum and Chilli Poussins and a variety of top drinks.
Today I think we need Superman to save us. We'll have SUPERMAN oldies I think as the movie opens this week (and I'm speaking to Henry Cavill the Jerseyman who dons the suit for the film show). Boy is it loud. I really enjoyed 80% of it; Henry is every inch the Clark Kent you want if your bus has driven off the cliff or you're falling from the top of a skyscraper and we will serenade him with songs today.
Have a heroic and good-deed-doing Thursday, see you after 5.
