Women are online stalkers (Neil's opinion) as 50% check out a future date online beforehand - Tina disagreed and thought it was sensible...
It seems Dave had a lucky escape - checked out a lady, only to find there was a lady with the same name wanted for a double murder in Australia! Justina checks out chaps - but if you google her you'll find Justina bought Ronan Keating's pants - from us!! It was all in aid of the Pirate Trust!
And how cute was 6 year old Jake Iveson with his version of the Friday song?! Neil and Tina are now worried about their jobs!

Tina was strict this morning. What do more than three quarters (77%) of us believe you should protect kids from?
Swearing; themselves; getting into a gang; illness or vaccinations, drugs, poor diets were all wrong guesses and Tina disallowed "smoking" because the actual answer was 'smoking in a car'! Gotta be absolutely specific to get it absolutely right!
Why did we get talking about mens frilly knickers?
And what can you not bear to be parted from?
We learn that a man has kept a MacDonalds burger for 14 years!
Answers included Valentine's cards from 25 years ago, penguins (Lisa has over 500 in a collection), Justina has a piece of cake with the picture of parents on it - kept in the freezer and Heidi couldn't part with her duvet this morning!!

On the brainteaser this morning, loads of wrong answers on the Brainteaser of what would 88% of us borrow from a neighbour without asking….
Ladder was Teresa's suggestion - which Neil arranged to borrow… Parking space was a controversial answer and the most popular answer but getting it right was Jo Lobb from St Day with Internet access
We got talking about uniforms - and mens' DIY cover-ups - Gary from Penryn's call was priceless, and involved biscuits...
The big topic of controversy was Liverpool's Luis Suarez and his 3 match ban!!
Neil suggested he could maybe help out Arglye in their next fixture, which didn't go down too well.

St Georges Day
On today's show, Neil reveals he now has 5 grey hairs! It's all downhill from here…
Tina won on the Brainteaser with no-one correctly guessing the answer to:
What would 37 per cent of us do at the end of a night out?
Have a Kebab or any kind of takeaway was Neil's suggestion. Others included falling asleep (on the sofa, in the toilet, anywhere); drinking and dialling; losing keys, wallets, shoes; or raiding the fridge. The answer: pinch a pub beer glass!
George and the Dragon
We asked Cornwall how we should celebrate St George's Day as every other patron saint gets a good party!
A new Survey
And it's official - Men are slobs - Neil squirms admitting he's never emptied the kitchen bin (and he's even worn socks for more than one day eeugh!)
Jean from Penzance says her man Derek is perfect - and gets excited about using the steam mop - and he isn't alone! Karen in Antony has a hubbie excited about steam mops too!!
Emma Simmons from St Tudy had a go of getting 10 general knowledge questions correct in 60 seconds, scoring a very respectable 8 out of 10. Sadly she didn't win the money to put towards her wedding in June - but if you know someone newly engaged, or getting married - then Win a Wedding worth ££££THOUSANDS - enter online.
And don't forget, we still haven't played Round 3 of the World's Easiest Thousand Pound minute.

Welcome back to Monday...
It's D day - start the biking beach body diet today apparently!
We had the usual brainteaser, well done to winner Ian Henshaw from Falmouth.
Congratulations too to London marathon runners including News Emma Carton and traffic Adam - can Neil get Tina doing it next year? Or will it be the Moonwalk instead!
And we talk to George Shelley from Union J as they preview their new single - Carry You - will it be the next No1?
More madness tomorrow! Will we be dragon slaying?!!

A Local Heroes Weekend
We're back after a Local Heroes weekend. Yesterday we played the audio from the video clips - which you can watch online.
The nailpolish didn't stop Neil treading on her toes, through the show. Ouch!
And after research shows that children incessantlly ask questions...we asked what awkward questions have you been asked by kids?

We made it gang, to the end of the a VERY long 5-day week (well, we have had a few 4 day weeks recently!).
Gillian Boyd, was the second winner of our World's Easiest Thousand Pound competition and she popped in to collect her £1000 cash. Click the picture to find out how she is planning on spending the money. It really was as simple as 1,2,3.
And don't worry if you didn't get a chance to play - Round 3 is out and you can find out all ten questions and ALL ten answers to the Special Edition Part 3 of the World's Easiest Thousand Pound Minute, this time it's as easy as A,B,C.
Reminiscing Over Kids Games
In a Daily Mail article today, kids would rather read, do chores or homework than play outside - so it got us thinking about the games we played as kids.
Cornwall's list included 40:40 (also known as manhunt); british bulldog; french skipping; stuck in the mud; knockdown ginger; kiss chase; table football; confused postman; k-nocker; hula hoop; conkers and marbles!
Have a great weekend.

Tina is back on form...what do one in five of us do at least once every week? Listen here.
Tina: "Coffee Neil?"
Neil: "Wouldn't say no!"
Tina is convinced that Neil's grave should have his catch phrase..."Wouldn't say no" engraved in BIG letters!
Unusually, both Tina and Neil were on the coffee this morning - making them hyper - Tina 'cos she'd been rocking out to Simple Minds last night at Plymouth Pavilions and Georgie kept Neil awake!
The worst things a man can say to a woman
Here's the top ten list:

RIP Baroness Thatcher
And Tina reveals the moment that the then Mrs Thatcher, Prime Minister visted her home in the early 1980s!
A very young Tina (left) is pictured with her mum (centre) and Mrs Thatcher.
Click the picture to listen to Tina explain the story as to why she visited and find out what the Prime Minister drank!
Every weekday at 8.20 am we give someione in Cornwall the chance to win £1000. All they need to do is answer 10 questions correctly in 60 seconds. Listen to how Lesley Woodhouse from Quintrell Downs gets on. The 2012 Tour de France Winners name really did trip her up....

So just under 2/3rds of us don't have what? Neil's answer of a lawnmower was wrong, as was those who said a pension plan (Charles, Baz and Mo) or Life Insurance (Pete) or a will (Pete's wife and Vicki).
Listen here for the answer.
So we asked about your fake purchases.
Listeners had bought fake sunglasses, shirts and fake, fake tan....
...have a listen

Brainteaser: What do more than 4 in 10 women check out before they date a chap?
Tina foxed Neil, and Cornwall with this one...wrong answers included: the size of his....wallet, his motor, shoes, grey hair (?), their bottoms, and their Facebook profile! The answer was: his taste in music!
And Chantelle Houghton's been unlucky in love, she's letting her friends choose her next fella...would you?
