Let's try again.

Simon Mayo | 09:06 UK time, Wednesday, 4 July 2012

Well frankly it seems more interesting if I don't come to work. Normally the blog ticks along nicely, doing good business and setting the world to rights. Then I'm off for a day and suddenly hundreds of posts arrive as you all take over the show! And a pretty good job you all did too. I'm thinking I should be off more often and let you guys take the strain; if I'm short of quiz questions, confessions or oldies ideas, I know exactly where to go. Way to go bloggers (as young folk say). And thanks to Richard A. who stood up like a trooper and who I now you all love anyway.
I'm hoping things are on a more even keel after a day in duvet land, but you can never be too sure. I shall step forward hesitantly towards today's show. And even though I know you can do this perfectly well without me, the oldies today on the HIGGS BOSON/GOD PARTICLE which is definitely definitely there. They are calling it a 5 sigma result which means you are 99.9999% sure. Which seems a darn sight more certain than most things in life. My attendance today might only be a 3 sigma. The Higgs particle seems a bit like the LIBOR. With one you don't really understand it, but it seems a very important and good thing. With the other you never really understand it either but it seems like a bad thing. Or maybe my brain is fuddled. Oldies about very small things indeed please.
There's an Independence Day Mosh today; you might as well rock your way to choir practice with us after 6.
Have a controlled and ordered Wednesday, see you after 5

    Morning all. Lovely to have you back Simon - fingers crossed for the show.

    Yesterday was a mad day and I busy from 7.00am - 10.00pm so I didn't get a chance to catch up on what was obviously an exciting blog!

    Happy Birthday to Billie and Jennie - and it's my 'blog-birthday' today, so I'm getting the parcel wrapped for the party later (pass the parcel and musical chairs are a must I'd have thought).

    Good Morning one & all, glad your feeling on the mend Simon, wish I had the opportunity to have a 'Duvet Day' but being a full time working Mum; it's difficult but that's another story.

    You can tell your not yet 100% Simon, you made a particularly poor typo in your opening blog, sorry to be so picky bearing in mind your condition but it is my job afterall and comes as second nature to look for typo's!

    Happy Birthday to all with a special day today, it was my Mum's yesterday (76years young).

    What a subject matter for to choose from

    STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR - U2
    FEEL SO REAL - STEVE ARRINGTON
    ONE STEP CLOSER - GEORGE McCREA
    JUST A LITTLE BIT OF YOU - MICHAEL JACKSON

    *Pedant Corner*
    YOUR and YOU'RE - job done.
    Far more common in here, however:

    IT'S = contraction of 'it' and 'is' - ie. It's an easy mistake to make
    ITS = possessive form of the neuter pronoun, 'his' ,'hers' or 'its' - ie. Pedantry has its own reward

    Oh and have found out that the 'lympic torch will be at it's nearest point to me at around 10.30 on Friday - not sure if it's with Jilly before or after me ..?

    Should I forget, may I wish CoffeeBuzz and Mrs CB-to-be a very special day on Sat (?).

    Enjoy the day, because it goes so quickly and before you know it, it will be Sunday.

    And also remember, IT IS YOUR DAY so do what you want to do, not what other people think you should do. Blog hugs coming your way......................>>>>>

    How are you feeling today, Birthday Jennie?

    Opportune moment to quote the Beatles -

    "You say it's your Birthday
    Well it's my Birthday too, yeah!" Ha!

    #36 #43 and I think the plural of Typo would be Typos?
    Although that looks plain wrong.
    Surely Harry the S (Head of the Pendants assoc) can illuminate us in these grammatical questions? And maybe sign up another member?
    We're all in the same club on some days....

    64?.... SIXTY-FOUR? SURELY NOT! You certainly don't look your age Miss Billie! But the more candles there are the bigger the wish ;) Hope you're having a fabulous day.

    Jennie, whirly-pits (as we call them) be gone! Hope you're having a tip-top birthday too!

    Is it me for the torch soon? Better check the schedule and hope I'm feeling a little brighter by then, don't want the torch to singe my duvet!

    RE 4th July,
    One of our three events in the building has an American attending - and they ordered a cake to be delivered (with red white and blue icing, statue of liberty, etc) which was duly delivered to me.
    Sadly as I had not had my caffeine (this is my only excuse) I put it in the wrong room, next to the catering for the wrong event...
    All ended ok in the tho, as she (the aforementioned American) came to ask where her cake was, I realised my mistake - and hot-footed it to the room werein said cake lay.
    As I pushed past the queuing attendees - I managed to whisk the cake away from a knife that was literally 2" away from it's surface.
    Not moved that fast for a while!

    The crestfallen knife-wielding attendees were not that disappointed though, as they had lovely mini danish anyways!

    Plus the lift was broken first thing - it's been one of those days...or in my case daze.

    Question for the 3 LadyJ's - Jennie, Julia and Jilly

    Re: Olympic Torch Relay.

    Jennie - 10.30 Fri. Not sure about Julia and Jilly approximate locations.
    Deebee, Madchick, Dougal, Mrs Boris and KenJude are already on the 'list' for later this week - as is the Dude who gets an 'honorary carry' on Day 48.

    Lincolnshire has already made its own little piece of history for the 2012 Torch Relay.
    The 'Lympic Torch has visited the Shire on FOUR separate occasions

    #90 Katy I have sent you a text with Julia's location, in case she doesn't get a chance to pop on here.

    If there are too many of us for the Cambridge part of the route, then I could bag Ipswich where we keep our boat. I won't physically be there when the torch is passing, but Mr B might...

    hi all

  • Comment number 97.

    #74 - I'm feeling fine Birthday Billie, thank you very much. I'm still waiting to feel 'grown up' though - every birthday I think it may happen but still feel about 26 even if the clock says 56 - and as you say, Billie - and PROUD!!

    Looking forward to the party this afternoon - the brie had been taken out of the fridge and is nicely gooey and the bread is lovely and crusty - can't wait!!

    I've found some non-alcoholic fizz (elderflower champagne, I think) to toast all the lovely bloggers .

    Don't think I have wished Simon better, in amongst all the excitement - hope you feel well enough to join us for a swift half Simon! Bring the rest of the gang too!
