Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Simon was back this morning after his 3 day weekend bonanza and he kindly informed me that today is ‘Free Cone Day’. Every year to celebrate its anniversary, Ben & Jerry’s give away free ice cream, and they’ve been doing it since 1979, when their first ice cream shop opened. Why am I just hearing about it now?!?! I know where I’ll be going when I finish work today............Empire Cinema in the town. I was panicking thinking I would have to choose which flavour to get, however upon further inspection it would seem I can have as many as I want. To quote the Terms and Conditions of this amazing offer; “Ben & Jerry’s will be giving away one free scoop of ice each person who queues at any participating Free Cone Day scoop shop.........You will get one scoop for each time you queue, but you can queue as many times as you want.” Bish bash bosh!!! My plan is to get my first free ice cream and eat it while I’m queuing for the next, it’s a vicious cycle. Don’t worry though, I’ll go to the gym after and work it off, (Steve Cram never needs to know).

We were asking you this morning what old technology you’re still using, as it came to light that Microsoft has stopped offering support for Windows XP. Simon still uses a Nokia mobile phone, it’s so old it probably has snake on it! I must admit, the Moore household does still have a TV with a built in video player, just in case anyone wants to watch a classic VHS. My favourite response on Twitter was from Jane who said she still has an old fashioned carpet sweeper! I still remember my granddad having one of those and I used to think it was great.

Day 2 of ‘Grab Grundy’s Grand went a little bit better than yesterday. Today’s contestant Brent managed to answer 5 questions correctly however it’s still not enough to win the grand. Tune in tomorrow and give it a go only need to answer 10 questions correctly in 60 seconds! And don’t forget that ‘Sunderland’s Secret Sound’ is now at 7.10am!!
