Traditionally, blinkers, brightenings at network cell junctions, are identified with SOHO/CDS. Explosive events or high velocity events are identified in high resolution UV spectra from HRTS and SOHO/SUMER. Recently, studies have been carried out comparing frequency of coincidence of blinkers and explosive events using SOHO/CDS and SOHO/SUMER data. We present a probability model that hypothesises that blinkers and explosive events are random and not physically related in any way. The coincident blinker and explosive event results from Bewsher et al. (2004) suggest that the hypothesis can not be rejected and the results of Brković & Peter (2004) are inconclusive.
