Snow is coming – I can smell it! The office didn’t believe that you can smell snow. As I am in touch with nature I am able to communicate with the natural world, town and city dwellers cannot understand the concept of predicting the weather by nose alone! So here is the deal - the outside world smells different just before snow. Trained weather smellers can spot a big storm or just a light flurry. This is a skill that in the Middle Ages was common place everyone was at it ‘Ye olde snow I smell ah it’ll be a coming’ was often heard down local tavern amongst wenches. It’s connected - (now here is the science bit). With the slight temperature rise which often happens before it snows. The smells of the world become more pungent. The flowers breathe, the cows relax more, and the world smells more! A keen nose can spot it. Try this and if you are really in touch with your nose it will become very obvious when snow is coming – if only the TV weather men used this technique it would be brilliant.
Yorkshire men are hairy and it’s official! A new survey has revealed that we have more beards here than anywhere else in the country . We are gold medal class when it comes to growing them, but here is the bad news not all women like it. Ten percent of women admit to finishing with a guy – because of his facial hair, a study’s revealed. Researchers found millions of women have dumped a partner, or refused to date them, because they wouldn’t shave or trim their beard more often. According to onepoll.com. If you want a good moustache head for Birmingham. Occasionally I get my fluff shaved off at some radio event under protest – women then flock to me and tell me how great I look. This is not the attention I need - I am not a piece of meat! Having said that I do have some sympathies with women, as having had 2 weeks where Joe swash kissed me at the panto twice daily , his stubble was a bit rough sometimes , in fact on a couple of occasions we had a Velcro moment and we were stuck together! Let that be a warning if you are bearded woman!
Catch you back on the radio Monday to Friday 6-10am - we will have a ball!
