Ive heard of spiders in grapes -- but frogs! Gaby, RH1 Stu (Txts, Fri): never mind Adrian Chiles, I sat next to Wolf from Gladiators on the tube and roared at him as I alighted at Embankment. He wasnt impressed. Johnsy, E14 HERES a challenge: can anyone name a longer-running sale than the one at dFS? Rich, E9 to tHE smartly dressed stranger who found my dog wandering down a busy road in Greenwich in the morning: thanks for returning her safely to her family! Maria, SE10 LAdIES: to avoid the white ring around your face do your Croydon facelift before you get your spray- on tan. Andrew, W1 StumpEd pA (Txts, Fri): looking for enjoyable but frugal daytime pre-Christmas activity for suits? Check out the annual Santacon, its a giant pub crawl across the whole of London where everyone dresses as Santa! Crazy! Jim, N1 StumpEd pA: try a team-building cookery class. I was dubious till we did it -- but actually it was hilarious! Masterchef, EC4 HERES an important question for all -- do we think david Hasselhoff has still got it? Gareth, Nottingham m (Txts, Thur): I always hear its the final condom when I listen to that Europe song. Anyone else out there whos in on the hidden meaning? Red Mike, W6 CRunICoRn (Txts, Fri): whats worse than socks and sandals? Flip- flops and tights! defeats the object of keeping feet cool, but a common sight in London. Lucy, Essex on mEtRopoLItAn line to Harrow at 5.30pm, the train driver should be a voiceover artist. deep and velvety smooth, just like James Earl Jones! Aficionado, HA1 EvA (Txts, Thur): perhaps your train lunatic who responded seemingly so rudely with two abrupt words was a cockney saying FAnK you? I like to give people the benefit of the doubt! or he may just have been a lunatic. Dawn, Herts CHAntELLE (Txts, Fri): yes, I do know what you mean about michel Roux Jr in masterChef: the professionals, but is it wrong to find his dad even sexier? I am HuGELy in love with michel Roux Snr! Becky, SN1 WHAtS swimmer Sharron davies doing in La Cage Aux Folles? oops, my mistake, its John Barrowman in drag in the new West End production! Sam, SW9 SHooK hands with Led Zeppelin and all-round rock god Jimmy page at the mott the Hoople gig -- that was the best ever start Ive had to a weekend. Simon, Grays Has your mail gone missing? SIMON COWELL, pictured, will be turning 50 on Wednesday, but you wouldnt know it to look at him. And his magnificent ego doesnt show any signs of ageing either, I have to say. Long may the man continue to entertain us. Helen, Fulham YES, hes physically well- preserved, but all that cash and Cowell still has what must be the daftest haircut in showbiz. It genuinely looks as though he cuts it himself. Simone, London ANYONE would look good with his lifestyle. Get him to work in a factory for 30 years and then well see how perfectly coiffured his hair will be! Toni, Brixton I WEnt to see matt Lucas on stage in prick up your Ears. He threw a lot into his performance and looked drained at the end but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done to him for taking on a new challenge. Ross, London I AdmIRE david Letterman for facing down his alleged blackmailer. It takes guts to confess his affairs. And if nothing else itll certainly take some beating when it comes to compelling live tv. Louise, Essex Another thing Would you pay 50 to skip passport queues? Is Turner art tosh? Is Cowell looking good for 50? Getitoff your txtYour mobile moans To be considered for publication, texts must be submitted with name and address or postcode. Please restrict messages to 25 WORDS.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite T HE pictures of post trolleys left outside a bookies in Earls Court (Lite, Friday) didnt surprise me at all, nor the warning we must send post in the next three weeks to be sure of making it in time for Christmas. Using the mail is vital to my work, but since the post strikes began its been a nightmare. All theyre doing is losing our post, public support and, eventually, all our business too. Josh, London IVE been waiting for my bank card for four weeks now. It is no longer just incon- venient but a downright scandal. Has it been delayed, lost or stolen? I dont know and, likely, I never will. Strikers shouldnt make the public their victims. Rich, London I fEEl sorry for the many small busi- nesses that have cheques and customers orders stuck in the postal system and are on the brink of financial ruin. If the industrial action goes on, it leaves the door wide open for private enterprise to take an even bigger stake in handling the post and parcels of the country. Tom W, London PoStAl workers in my area are fantastic and hard-working. My bu s i - ness relies o n Ro ya l Mail so I am losing out. W hy do e s management create so much dis- ruption? I appreciate Royal Mail needs to remain cost-effective -- but surely they could have avoided the present situation. Andy, London WHAtS the big deal about nipping to a bookies for 15 minutes? Maybe we should work in the Post office to try their arduous day. Im sure most people wouldnt enjoy it. Andrea, E12 tHE Post o f f i c e i s irrelevant. few people send let- ters now, thanks to email. time to change career, folks. F Longbottom, London I dIdnt get any birthday cards on Wednesday thanks to the strike. At least thats what I told myself! Francesca, Battersea Textpoll Q: Would Boris be a good PM?
