Drive 19th - 23rd

A busy week on Drive and that's all good mah friend. On Tuesday spoke to rising music star Jaime Jay - she's the new artist who's done an answer back song to JLS's number 1 "Beat Again" - (call Cheat again - as an imagined response to the lyrics in the song) and as a twist to it all - she used to go out with Marvin from the group - for 6 years!


Well, actually she told us it's not about him - but the lyrics are a spiced up imaginery version - and you can kind of see why - it's not much point adding new lyrics which just read "it's not yooou - it's meeeeee" - or "you said you'd put the biiiins oooout, you lying hound".

Or could you....?

Hmmmm - a number one awaits - eh?!


Anyway, she was really nice to speak to - hope she does well - Jay Z was full of praise of her in the press and he knows his stuff. He's my tip for the top. Check out more on Jaime and her video - at http://www.myspace.com/officialjaimejay

Also spoke to psychic Jeannie Jackson who's doing a reading at Fitness first at the end of the month for the Heroes charity - was very nice to speak to her - was interesting to hear about how she became a medium (not a clairvoyant - I hope I've got that right, I did ask her the difference) - and it was fascinating to hear some of her experiences doing readings for people. Fitness First have more details if you're interested in popping along - it's this Tursday (28th) - 8pm - £5 ticket - for tickets call Pauline on 01277 238080.

On Wednesday Cllr Karen Sheehan from Brentwood Council popped into Phoenix along with Lisa who's planning the Xmas lights in the town this year. It promises to be the best yet with stalls, parade, free food, and all in the new fully open re-vamped high street. There's lots for children to do with a competition for the winner to help turn on the xmas lights. It's all on Saturday 28th Nov, and fancy dress is encouraged with a 40's theme or xmas costumes of course.

There's more information at www.brentwood.gov.uk

Thursday saw an interview with Juan from spoof world music group Mundo Jazz - he was great - check out their Quincy song on You Tube -a  tribute to the greatest scientist ever (their words) who is always right in every episode - whenever there's an apparent suicide in the show, the TV characters never believe Quincy's lone voice that it's a murder - despite him being right on everything for the previous 73 episodes. Juan assured me their campaigning is done for the right reasons - not money - and their business with Columbia is highly legit. I believe him.

Mundo Jazz are playing at Billericay next month - check them out at www.mundojazz.co.uk

Friday saw a health and fitness chat with the girls from G and F bootcamp - Anita and Phillipa - they're personal trainers and are both really enthusiastic, great, bubbly people - great to speak to and really energetic - made me feel like exercising just sitting talking to them. Well, almost.

Did you know you can burn 50 more calories a day just by sitting down doing nothing if you have more muscle on you? That's one fact they told us - or if you're interested in finding out more about fitness check them out at www.gfbootcamp.com

I'm off for a nice lie down ... sorry, I meant, a big run.
