From Richard, With Love



Liz tells us that Richard ended today's broadcast with

"Richard: What ever you up to this Valentine’s Day i hope it’s love
filled and maybe just a bit profitable."

And the director took the cue and gave Richard and Allison a nice Valentine-themed graphic.



Richard: And I have to tell you also today that Jenny Harrison at the
World Weather Center she is going to be insufferable.

Alison: Why?

Richard: Oh apparently she predicted snow in Athens and it snowed in
Athens. I didn’t know ..

Alison: A proof she is always right.

Richard: Yes but she should be quite insufferable as the day goes on.
Alison: (laughs) We should look forward to chatting to her later on in
the hour.

Richard: We tell you about that and what else is going on about the
weather.


Richard: right now we are not going to hear to end of it for a
considerable time apparently snowing in Athens.

Alison: (laughs) And Jenny predicted it. The very, clever jenny
Harrison joins us.

Richard: Well, it she was very clever she’ll be able to predict a few
lottery numbers For the Euro lottery (Jenny laughs) Now that would be
good.

Alison: So that would be very handy jenny 18 million Euro. Yes, please.

Jenny: Listen, who’s to say I can’t predict it maybe I keep that
information all to myself you never know, but yeah ahm (Alison and Richard start
laughing) your quite right of course there has been some snow in Athens
and LET ME SHOW YOU THE PICTURES OF THE SNOW IN ATHENS!


Alison: Now it’s time for, it’s first time this hour – what I’m trying to
say?

Richard: You trying to say: it’s the first time in this hour that we
are going to visit the CNN International Weather Center...

Alison: What would i do without you?

Richard: ...where we will find our, our –

Alison: uh, where we will find our, our wonderful friend Jenny Harrison
there (Jenny laughs). There we are we finishing each other sentences
now.

Richard: Jenny.

Alison: Morning.

Jenny: Oh my goodness, morning to you both. Well it is Friday, isn’t
it? It’s four people out there trying to watch that thing this morning, my
goodness.

(weather forecast)
Alison: Jenny thanks very much. We’ve got our teeth back in. You’ll be
pleased to know. You are watching CNN.

Richard: Luckily we’ve got our own teeth back in.
(Alison laughs)
