Minus 6 and dry when driving in.

Hereford was busy, as it should be on a Sunday. Starvoski found the good ground too quick and was run off her feet.

Two old (in) mates ran well in their first point to points.. One For Rosie won while Marton Abbey was second..Jason Maguire trained OFR and said it was the biggest thrill of his life.. bar winning the Grand National on Ballabriggs ? Elliott England loved his ride on MA..

England really should not have lost to Scotland.. It was a cracking game to watch.. seat of the pants stuff. Ireland hosed up..

The Dublin Racing Festival was brilliant watching. Fabulous racing.. Rich Ricci interview made interesting viewing as he was a not a happy chappy after his Lossiemouth was beaten.. Not helped by his other horse..

Maya Quist my PA takes over the blog from tomorrow.. I am sure she has plenty of interesting stories lined up for you.

During a visit to my Doctor, I asked him, ‘’How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an old age home?

"Well," said the Doctor, "we fill up a bathtub. Then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask the patient to empty the bathtub."

Okay, here's your test:

1. Would you use the spoon?

2. Would you use the teacup?

3. Would you use the bucket?

"Oh, I understand,"  "A normal person would choose the bucket, as it is larger than the spoon."

The Doctors response?

No he said 'A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?'

It would have been Jim Wilson's birthday yesterday..It was Michael Wills's.. and today it is the turn of his wife Podge.
