jingles and holidays..

This is probably the last entry I'll make before we trundle off on holiday tomorrow; I'm on my homeward journey after the last day of work for a week, and we'll hopefully be on the road sometime after lunch.

The house isn't going to be empty during the week, though (sorry, burglars!) because Rob (Beth's brother) and Claire are moving house, and using ours as a temporary storage place for their stuff.. I imagine it might get a bit full!

Despite work being busy and quite stressful, we supervisors have taken some enjoyment from using Radio 1 jingles http://www.radiorewind.co.uk/jingles_menu_page.htm, terrible radio adverts () and klaxon noises as our email notifications, depending on who's sent us a message. Childish, I know, but it makes for a more entertaining (for us at least!) day.

podcasts
I've not really listened to many new podcasts lately. However, one that turned up on my Britcaster http://www.britcaster.com RSS feed was CoolSmartPhoneCast, which just goes to show that all you need to make a podcast is a recorder and a car radio.

The presenter carried out a review of the new Virgin Lobster 700TV - one of the first mobile phones I've heard about that includes a DAB tuner; not just that, but it includes the technology to decode television broadcsts that are included on some multiplexes. It seemed to be quite good, although I'd like to see one in action. I daresay it's quite expensive, though.

Well, I ought to get ready to pack.. the usual collection of electrical equipment, although once again, I'm going to resist taking my laptop. My aim is to complete the lyrics and melody of three songs (hopefully with acoustic MP3s on my return) during the course of the week, along with a little geocaching (if the opportunity presents itself and the weather stays clement!) and swimming.

See you in a week, then!
