Here we go. A slightly rushed blog today for which apologies. Final school trip of the year this morning (all the way to north London) and a chat with director Peter Jackson about his Hobbit before we get to Drivetime. And this needs to be in the system as early as possible so it can be cranked through and delivered to your computer. In its shiny new format which you love so much. Seriously, your comments will be noted of course (not that I can read any this morning! I can see that there are 217 but not what they are saying. I did get the gist yesterday however....) I shall make a point of forwarding all comments to head of corporate redesign systems analysis solutions to see what she/he has to say for her/himself.

Top comic Rhod Gilbert today. I've done a couple of shows with Rhod and he's a very funny guy (which is a good thing for a comedian). He stood up for Pudsey and stood in for Steve a few weeks back but his funniest stuff I've seen this year is the TV series where Rhod has a go at different jobs. His attempt to be a teacher was fantastic stuff.

Tunes today please on the frantic craziness of CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. The Confession yesterday was a fine example of Christmas department hassle, so let's go with that. Grotto grumbling.

Have an accurately budgeted and well balanced Tuesday, see you after 5.

    Zoe, sorry, I missed you out - hear hear! Damned blog! Not only am I going to have to wear my specs and read in small doses but I'm going to have to have a pencil and piece of paper next to me to make notes about who's said what....and this is progress?

    Re today's 12.12.12 date, a friend of mine who lives in Thailand said there is a maze of pink wedding tents in the streets as many couples want to marry on this unique date and I expect it will be the same at Gretna... not the pink wedding tents though!

    Good Morning All

    Lovely posts from Amelia and Holly Berry. I second everything they've said so eloquently.

    I'm sure that the blog WON'T be closing in the forseeable future (apologies for capitals - the new format won't do bold). This blog is an integral part of the show, and our contributions are clearly valued. And our esteemed leader seems to genuinely care about us as a community - he even blogs on occasion when he doesn't need to, such as when he's on holiday so we can keep chatting. So I don't think we need to start panicking yet.

    :o)

    Good morning all - very cold and frosty here today.

    May I second/third/however many the views so eloquently expressed by Hoffs, Zoe and others on the function and fate of this wonderful place. Since I had the courage to stop being a lurker and discover how friendly and welcoming everybody is, I have looked forward every day to logging on, reading the overnight posts and waiting for Simon's blog which set us off again to who knows where?!

    As I can't get out with any great ease, I love reading about everyone's exploits and seeing photos (does that still work?). I don't do Facebook or Twitter and don't think they provide the same platform as our lovely blog.

    MS/JW

    Off to give my eyes a rest before the next blog now.

    Holly Berry and Amelia, I have always had a fascination for dates, numbers, palindromes etc and at 12.12 today I shall be sending a text to my sister who is equally fascinated with 'unique' or 'unusual' dates. To hopefully send it at the right time, aiming for 12.12 and 12 seconds, (sad I know) I'll compose my message and keep it ready to send and hope I remember to send it! :o)
