8th February 2018

0 degrees and dry when driving in.

No frost and although you would not race here as we had minus 4 yesterday, neither Huntingdon or Doncaster are expecting problems as they would have been able to race yesterday. Yes racing is on at both course we have runner at.

Coldest week of the year was the forecast.. Modern technology is really not helping.. Wrong again...

Thursday is our easy day, well not today as we have six runners at two meetings.

Mat is heading North to one of his favourite racecourses Doncaster to saddle Dueling Banjos, while I am heading to Huntingdon to saddle Abbreviate, Vinndication, Glenforde, Braw Angus and Sea Story. For my thoughts on all my horses chances please click here.

Yes we have a busy day and by the time Sea Story has run will I be in a good mood or a dark one?!!

With that many runners I have taken a box at Huntingdon.. Easier than drifting from bar to bar looking for everybody?

A store that sells new husbands has opened in Melbourne, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1   - These men Have Jobs

She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2   - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.'

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3   - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going

She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4   - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!'

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5   - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor , where the sign reads:

Floor 6   - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

PLEASE NOTE: To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex, have money and like beer

The third, fourth, fifth  and sixth floors have never been visited.

Happy birthday to Mikey Elliot.. Yes see you later..

Life in Brazil.. Not here....yet..
