Baileys Blog Search

2nd February 2016

Plus 6 and dry when driving in.

The wind has abated and my office roof is still over my head.

Tom Bellamy, Henry Morshead and Tom Clarkson were in this morning to ride out.

My web site thankfully enjoys a great following and all who read it know when I have written this blog; my spelling and grammar shows some lack of ability as TNDGB enjoys reminding me..

So on that note this email, which arrived in my in box last night, from Guy Faber rather surprised me..

Dear Kim..I'm a slightly retired lawyer and now spend most of my time writing speeches for all sorts of different occasions. As well as this I offer a rather dull service correcting spelling mistakes and grammar on websites. There's no shortage of that sort of work as these days most people can't spell and their grammar is of a similar standard.

At the moment I'm having a go at trainers..A careful study of your website sadly fails to reveal grammatical or spelling howlers (though there are 2 'm's in commensurate) so I clearly can't do business with you on that front.

I would like to mention the jokes at the end of Bailey's blog.

The important and rather unusual thing they all have in common is that they're funny - quite a rarity as there are so many 'jokes' that are simply not funny. I think they are quite an important part of a trainer's website - the racing experience has to be fun for owners - and I should think lots of people have told you how much they enjoy this bit of your blog...

Thanks Guy.

Anyway back to today

Our vet Graham Potts was in for his weekly visit.

This weeks movers and shakers in the handicap charts are..Battle Dust down 1 to 124, Gaelic Myth down 5 to 114, Gallery Exhibition down 1 to 137, Un Ace down 2 to 140 while Nam Hai enters at 110.

We don't have any runners today but at least you can tell spring is on the way as the first race at Taunton this afternoon is at 2.15.. It was not that long ago it would have been 12.30.

Not sure if this fits the bill Guy..the old ones are always the best..

Fifty Shades Of Chocolate..

Mr Cadbury met Miss Rowntree on a Double Decker.

It was just After Eight.

They got off at Quality Street.

He asked her name.

'Polo, I'm the one with the hole,' she said with a Wispa.

'I'm Marathon, the one with the nuts,' he replied.

He touched her Cream Eggs, which was a Kinder Surprise for her.

Then he slipped his hand into her Snickers, which made her Ripple.

He fondled her Jelly Babies and she rubbed his Tic Tacs.

Soon they were Heart Throbs.

It was a Fab moment as she screamed in Turkish Delight.

But 3 days later his Sherbet Dip started to itch...............

turns out Miss Rowntree had been with Bertie Bassett who had Allsort

Happy 18 birthday Max Comley.
