Ever fell for a prank and then felt completely foolish for being such an idiot? I think this week has to be low light for me in that respect!
It was revealed on the internet last week that Mars would be visible with the naked eye as it passed it closer to earth than it has done or will do again in thousands of years. I later discovered it was a hoax that rolls around every year and has done for the last decade.
Question is did you stare at the sky like me?
A Mars a Day, once in a few thousand years perhaps?Posted by KLFM 96.7 on Thursday, August 27, 2015

This morning I discovered that Big Ben has been telling the wrong time for the past two weeks which led to a discussion about being late and the best excuses used to explain why.
I'm rubbish at making excuses and In the past I've not always been the best at keeping time but about a two months a go I realised that my clock on my iPhone was eight minutes fast, I've no idea how it happened or why it happened but I can't remember the last time I was late for anything since then.
The downside is switching over the tv to watch the 9 O'clock news and then having to wait for it to start.

I can't believe that I'm already two weeks in to my 10,000 Selfies with Si challenge! As you may know by now I'm meeting and having a Selife with as many people as I can over the next year and so far I've met some amazing people in our community. My travels have taken me to the Linnets, Lynn Museum, Corn Exchange, Nando's, Majestic Cinema, Network Waste and many more.
The invites are flying in too, I can't thank you enough for being part of this because apart from the prize and my goal of 10,000 it's been so nice meeting you, seeing what you do and being able to say "hello" in person. If you'd like a visit just email me and I'll do my best to pop along.
WIN AN IPAD
One of the 10,000 Selfies will win an IPad and to see the snaps so far and learn how to be in with a chance of winning win an IPad

Everybody likes to make a quick quid here or there if they can, but to make millions out of what will only ruin people's lives is beyond me. We are all only human, and people will cheat, that is never going to change but to have a website set up to make it easy to do sickens me. You've probably heard by now the website I refer to has been hacked, and the hackers are threatening to leak the details of it's users, it's bad because it's a major security leak but at the same time I'm thinking 'Karma' and serves them right. It's threatend that over a million dirty little secrets could be revealed in the next few days.
If you're not happy in your relationship or this a problem surely it would be better to talk about it, not run away with someone for a dirty weekend as that will only make the end of any relationship far worse, plus the idea of using a website to find this person knowing full well the implications for that person and their family, for your family, your children and your life is just plain stupid.
Why would anyone use this site! This is why, listen to a caller to the show this morning convince us it's OK!
It's not just men that cheat obviously, and this morning I heard from many different people who had been through the pain of a cheating partner. Hell have no fury like a woman scorned is a well know saying, but men are pretty inventive at getting their own back too! The final caller on the audio below made us laugh this morning, have a listen.

Thanks to Ella McEvoy and Henry Frost who joined me in Studio 1 at KLFM on the most important day of their life so far! Today they recieved their GCSE results live on the radio in front of thousands of listeners. It must have been nerve wracking enough to open that brown envolope but live on the radio, must have only made it much harder for them.
However as you'll see below they certaily let their hair down and had a good time ahead of recieving their results.
Here's the BIG moment
Well done guys!
A Big thanks to Springwood High School for making this possible!
