Today, live from a BBC studio waiting to speak to Radio Shropshire. Who are now saying hello.
And have now said goodbye. So onward bloggers to a new dawn!  A new week with sunny uplands in prospect.
If this blog is shorter than normal that is because I have lost part of my left forefinger. Well I say lost, I stuck it back on (it was all flappy, you don't want to much detail) and stuck it with steri-strips. This was all in the cause of passing on the good old trampoline which has now moved on to a loving family who will care for it and bounce on it. Although everyone agreed it was time to go, losing it was one of those 'oh so that's it then' moments. We've had once since prehistoric times but child 3 has not climbed on its creaky springs for some while now, so it was time to go. And in the pulling apart of the mainframe, it decided to take its revenge. I won't go on about it.
This week Radio 2 are celebrating the voice, that most wonderful, complex and fascinating  of instruments. Our part is to revive the drivetime tradition of the mystery voice competition. Now some of you might remember Johnnie Walker running this or even the late, great John Dunn. It's about the simplest quiz out there but it is endlessly intriguing and everyone has an opinion.  And it's back! Is it Jeff Lynne, President Bush or Kermit the Frog? Ed Milliband, Steve Jobs or Brian Cox? Who knows, but let's argue about it.
And we've done voice tunes very recently so that leaves MYSTERY oldies please, or something to mark the return of a venerable institution. You're too kind.
Have a chirpy (if not bouncy) and buzzy Monday. See you after 5.

    Good morning bloggers all - breezy but sunny and mild here in S Essex.

    What a lovely way to wake up - half an eye and ear open when the voice of Mr Allinson came from the radio - probably the only mystery voice I would recognise!

    Lord Gazza - I sometimes think interviews depend on the mood of the interviewer and whether they've had their quota of tea/coffee, never mind who they are interviewing or what they are interviewing for - that mountain near Watford needs special preparation, I'd imagine! ;0))

    Well said Deebee.

    Where will the musical magical mystery tour take us today................?

    Good Morning All

    Lots of menshes last night - well done everybody who got one! The giant bee 3 worder wasn't me.

    Is anyone watching Broadchurch? I'm really enjoying it - fine performances from David Tennant and Olivia Coleman, who are both brilliant in whatever they do. My opinion, of course - but I think a few other people agree with me. I thought it was the last episode last night, so I was quite frustrated to discover it wasn't. Roll on next Monday...

    #76 #77 Great story, Gazza

    #79 Barney, I'm sorry that you only seem to have negative comments to make. Of course, everyone is welcome to an opinion, but I'm wondering if you'd fare better on a forum that doesn't annoy you quite so much... #justsaying

    See you all on the new blog for some more activity...

    ~X~

    Morning All

    Lord Gazza, your story made me smile.

    Thank you Amelia! Yes, it was very windy last night and we have howling gales and rain today.

    The wind doesn't usually keep me awake but being very gusty tonight & house making weird creaky noises.

    Mildred ~ glad you survived your first day, always a scary thing.

    gazza ~ Interviews can be very odd.

    Mystery voice thing was quite fun. As predicted I didn't know who it was.

    i got the highest score in the test but a week later my friend at school had an interveiw with them and got the job,he had a lower score than me,it might be the thing in the interveiw when he said about going on mountain training,and i said i thought i be working in watford and he said yes but we train people with mountain training,

    hi all

    the confession reminds me of the time i went 4 a job as a postie,
    i was in my last year at school and the sorting office were looking 4 new posties who were finishing school that year,i applied and got an interveiw,went down and had to do a maths test with other kids who turned up,when the test was finished we had to wait to find out the results,im not very good at maths, but when the bloke came back in he called out loads of names then said you can go now you have not passed,the ones whos name wasnt called out passed,my name wasnt called out so i ended up with an interveiw with the big boss thay phoned me up and said i didnt get the job
