Well, here is the email i gotten today...

Hello all,

thank you once again for your entry into the Liverpool Echo name a train competition with Virgin Trains.

Now that the vote has closed I'm sorry to say your entry did not win. With almost 3,000 votes cast, the overall winner was The Flying Scouseman.

However you do still win two return tickets to London courtesy of Virgin Trains. They will be in touch with you shortly to sort that out via email.

Congratulations on that and thanks again for some brilliant suggestions.

All the best,

Neil Macdonald

The Flying Scouseman....if i say what i feel, it's just gonna sound like sour grapes so, I'll leave it there... Laughing

Can't say I'm impressed, I think "Trainee McTrainface" sounds better! Sorry you didn't win, Barbie, but at least you've got your McTickets, och aye! Laughing

I'm not impressed. I rather like The Liverpool Belle.....Imagine all the train spotters taking shots of that....comparisons of other names.... Rolling Eyes

I'm not bothered Alice. I will be in work and not prepared to lose a days pay for it. I just want my tickets.  Very Happy

So, i treated myself and bought an Alexa. You know, the Amazon Echo. I'm pretty much pleased with it but, unfortunately she keeps telling me that she doesn't have or doesn't know a track I ask for.
Oh she does, she knows them all. She just doesn't understand my accent!!!!!!!Rolling Eyes
Dumb woman!!!!  Rolling Eyes

I find myself now asking for things like...."Alexa, play... can.....i.....playyyy....with....mad....nesss by Iron...maiden..... (very slow and very awfully posh....  Shocked  )

I'm like talking to this machine like I have a speech impediment.  Confused

Maybe I should have opted for the google Home..... Laughing
