Shaun the Sheep, Loom Band dresses and Deadly Plants!!

16th July 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

A list of the best kids TV characters has been published by The Radio Times magazine and we were surprised to see that ‘Shaun the Sheep’ has been voted number 1. ‘Postman Pat’ came in second and ‘Sooty & Sweep’ were third. I can’t believe characters like ‘Tom & Jerry’ or even ‘Top Cat’ weren’t in the top 10 and characters like ‘The Clangers’, ‘Bagpuss’ and ‘Scooby Doo’ seem to be the most popular choice on Facebook and Twitter. Keep your suggestions coming in because we could end up with an even better list that The Radio Times.

Everyone’s jumped on the Loom Bands bandwagon; from kids to grown men, I’ve seen loads of people wearing the bracelets and I must admit even I’m sporting one made for me by my niece. However it would seem that this craze has reached new levels of craziness. People have actually started making clothes!!!! Yes that’s right, you can buy kids dresses, adults dresses and even a snazzy two piece. One dress has just been sold on eBay for a whopping £170,100!!! I suppose you could set the kids a little task for the summer holidays and cash in on their creations? Just a suggestion, but it could keep them busy for 6 weeks.

Simon found a news story this morning about a deadly plant thought to be extinct which has been discovered at.........Souter Lighthouse in Whitburn!!!!! Dun Dun Duuuuuunnnnn. Members of the public have been advised not to even touch the ‘corn – cockle’ because it is full of toxins and acids that could lead to vomiting, dizziness and in extreme cases, DEATH. It’s weird to think that something like that is actually growing in our city. Give it a couple of years and Sunderland will turn into ‘The little Shop of Horrors’.
