After a brisk walk up the gallops breakfast followed.. deserved..

Twitter is a funny place. There are good and bad points about being on and following twitter. Yesterday was a good one as I saw Tom Bellamy tweet.. '' Well this made my day.. He's up.. and a below was a picture of Ryan Hatch taking his first steps after his horrific fall at Cheltenham on December 9.

I dont know Ryan but his plight has not been a good one. Yesterday must have been a break through day for all involved. I hope the upward curve continues as I am sure it will.

We have one runner today at Huntingdon. Aliandy and David Bass meet at 3.30 and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.

A naughty one for today..

A young woman walks into a Chartered accountant’s office and tells him that she needs to file her tax Returns.

The accountant says, “Before we begin, I’ll need to ask you a few questions.”

He gets her name, address etc. And then asks,”What’s your occupation?”

“I’m a prostitute,” she says.

The accountant is taken aback and says, “That's too gross. Let’s try to re-phrase that."

The woman says, “OK, I’m a high-end call girl”.

“No, that still won’t work. Need something more acceptable."

They both think for a minute; then the woman says, “I’m an elite poultry farmer.”

The accountant asks, “What does poultry farming have to do, with being a prostitute?”

“Well, I raised a thousand cocks last year.”

Chartered Acct : “ Brilliant !!! Poultry Farmer it is !!!  and agricultural income is tax free.
