I Like Autumn
This morning, on reading an article in the Thanet Extra by my friend and radio colleague Johnny Lewis, it inspired me that September and the Autumn are one of the best times of year. Misty mornings, the changing colours of tree leaves and long shadows in the later afternoon before sunset.
This morning’s weather in Medway is super with highs of 21 forecast and a similar day for tomorrow. Hello September!
Here’s something for concerened parents everywhere!
Ford are launching a car key, which will allow parents to limit the speed
their teenagers can drive at. The MyKey system can also be used to remotely turn the stereo system down - and block it altogether if seatbelts aren’t fastened.
The controls can also switch off Bluetooth technology so phone calls can’t be
made. It’ll be available next year.
Pocket Money Rise
Pocket money has risen for the first time in 7 years. It’s estimated that we’re now giving out £6.25 to each child in the UK.
Much more than when I was a kid!
Most Googled 2011
Amy Winehouse is the most Googled subject of the summer. We were also interested in Ryan Giggs of Manchester United and the Beckham’s newest family member Harper Beckham.
The Apprentice was the most Googled TV show and the movie we’ve been most interested in is The Inbetweeners.
The best of the rest include Wimbledon, Euromillions, Harry Potter and, of course, a British favourite – the weather!

What “gifts” has your cat dragged home?
- Half a snake
- A teddy bear
- Barbie dolls
- The kitten from next door
- Frogs (that are still alive!)
Jekyll and Hyde summer
Our weather is being described as a Jekyll and Hyde summer – as soaring temperatures are expected to return by the end of the week.
Forecasters say that in the second half of this week Kent will see temperatures get back up to the early 30′s.
