Eight colleagues from work do a Lotto bonus ball sweep. Now rolled over for 26th week. Come on 35!!! PP, PE29 PEtEr M: I found your railcard on the Northern line tube last night and handed it in to staff at Charing Cross station. hope youre reunited. Nic, Chelmsford DaNIELa (Txts, Thur): the narrator on MasterChef is fine, but why do they need tWO judges when they aLWaYs have the same opinions, just worded slightly differently? Han, SE3 DaNIELa: oh my God how funny, couldnt agree with you more. Your text made my day! that narrator is awful! Cristina, KT2 DaNIELa: youre entitled to your opinion, but I think India Fisher does a great job on MasterChef and her bosses and other viewers obviously think so too, as shes been doing the job for years. Lucy, Twickenham PINX (Txts, Thur): I always step over three drains to the point when Im on a run I will do a Fame-style leap over the final one! Superstitious, Clapham PINX: that was probably me! Been doing that since I was 12 and was told it was bad luck. have never walked on three drains since. Im 25 now! Superstitious, CM14 PINX: yes -- cant help it! Maybe you saw ME?? ran the whole London Marathon avoiding three drains! Sidestepper, W10 aNYONE else noticing that with every new picture Gordon Brown is looking more and more like the emperor from star Wars? Makes you wonder... Tomtom, Bromley DaMIEN G (Txts, Thur): the only women lowering their standards are those attracted to shallow people like you who think that only size matters. Joe C, Surrey Laura (Txts, Wed): anything up to size 16 is fine, anything above is a definite no-no. Why is a plus size called curvy when in reality size 18 and up is just fat? John, NW4 BIG stEvE (Txts, Thur): I do. rotund all the way baby. Im teeny- tiny and my guy is big. I wouldnt have him another way. Bee, Soho BIG stEvE: there are women out there who like bigger guys, yes! I prefer my men to be men and to give me a proper hug when needed. Claire, London jaCk (Txts, Thur): Im happily married too, but girls always love a compliment so dont be shy! Kelly, London jaCk: yes, girls want to hear it. the world would be a better place if people complimented each other more. Ali, SS9 jaCk: no, women dont want to hear it. I pity your wife! John, SE1 Is Damon right for 2012 job? I FEEL sorry for Jude, pictured, and Im not surprised to hear American model Samantha Burke, who has given birth to his daughter after a brief relationship last year, has lined up a host of media deals. The fault lies with both of them. Hopefully he has learned a lesson. Shelle, London WHEN I heard Ms Burke was writing a blog about her child with Jude, my sympathy went to him. What can she gain by writing it? I hope this is a lesson to all actors if they get lonely away from home. Don, Harrow JUDE LAW seems to suit scandal. Every time I open my newspaper hes up to something else. This is his fourth child now. Maybe its time he grew up. Terri, London CurtIs MOOrE should be booted off the X Factor immediately. Its a family show watched by millions of youngsters. the 16-year- old, who brandished knives on Bebo, should be made an example of. JC, London aFtEr tfL agreed a convicted wife-killer shouldnt be driving black cabs, I would ask them to do a CrB check on all licensed cab drivers. the result could be scary. Steve, London Another thing Do you back cycle speed bumps? Are MP3s too loud? Are you happy for Jude Law?

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite D AMON ALBARN helped with the BBCs credits for the Beijing Olympics last year and they were brilliant. If, as artistic director of the open- ing ceremony for the 2012 Games, he can get a grasp on the things that make London culturally special and unique (though I cant think what on earth they will be) then it will be a success. Marie, W6 GREAT idea. Damon Albarn is from Leytonstone. He will know about the east London area and its cultural sig- nificance. Much better than getting some arty luvvie from Islington to do it. Tommy A, east London BEIJING had Steven Spielberg and produced a mind-blowing display of human, light and sound performance. We, in contrast, have got an indie-kid whom no one outside of this country has ever heard of. No wonder nobody has any confidence in this debacle. Marlow, London AS LONG as its better than our contribution to the closing ceremony in 2008 Ill be happy. It was a disgrace! Hopefully Mayor Boris John- son will be out of the way by then so he can spare us his embarrass- ing flag-waving. Barney, Islington ALL opening ceremonies are the same. They have a small child who symbolises youth and a few doves for world peace. Its a load of pompous nonsense. Carly, London WHAT does Albarn know about sport or even national identity? The commit- tee has just picked him to get head- lines. Sarah G, Kensington SEEING as the Games are now being run on a shoestring, perhaps we should expect a re-formed Chas & Dave for the opening ceremony?
