Plus 9 and dry when driving in.

Well that’s May done.. My favourite month and frankly it was a good one as I can remember…weather wise it broke all records.

Freddie Wills’s birthday yesterday. Sadly due to social distancing and the country not ready for mass family gatherings we had to settle for a Zoom meeting last night. Much talk of past photos.. of six packs when younger.. not sure Mrs B knew what we were talking about!

Racing starts again today.. and if by chance you are a twitter fan you will be as horrified as I was to the see the shit that Matt Hancock received for announcing .. ''Thanks to the nation’s resolve, horseracing is back from Monday’’... Sad times we live in....Perhaps we should take notice and try and educate?

Lets be positive.. we are starting and the country needs sport.. Time to leave Cheltenham out of this.. ..

Hopefully there is some good news.. Owners need to be able to see their horses run.. especially as they are ones who have supported us through the last few months.... No owners.. no trainers.. no racing..The BHA have announced..

Dont forget to buy your Racing Post Paper..They restarted print copies today.. it will be a collectors item in years to come..

Monday morning and Doctor Haze, Station Master, Minella Warrior, Mon Palois, The Bull Mccabe, Sadlemor and Starvoski all returned to Thorndale.. Holidays over..

Modern technology is scary.. Last week I mentioned about buying a bigger bike saddle as the one I have almost cuts me half…. Next time I went on my instagram account there were adverts trying to sell me bigger saddles!

So excuse me if I have used this before..

Ordering Pizza In 2020

CALLER:Is this Gordon's Pizza?

GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza.

CALLER:I must have dialled the wrong number.  Sorry.

GOOGLE:No sir, Google bought Gordon’s Pizza last month.

CALLER:OK.  I would like to order a pizza.

GOOGLE:Do you want your usual, sir?

CALLER:My usual? You know me?

GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three kinds of cheese, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, and meatballs on a thick crust.

CALLER:OK! That’s what I want ...

GOOGLE:May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust?

CALLER: What? I detest vegetables!

GOOGLE:Your cholesterol is not good, sir.

CALLER:How the hell do you know!

GOOGLE:Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.

CALLER:Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza!  I already take medication for my cholesterol.

GOOGLE:Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you purchased only a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 4 months ago.

CALLER:I bought more from another drugstore.

GOOGLE:That doesn’t show on your credit card statement.

CALLER:I paid in cash.

GOOGLE:But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.

CALLER:I have other sources of cash.

GOOGLE:That doesn’t show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law.


GOOGLE:I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.

CALLER:Enough already!  I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I'm going to an island without an Internet, or cable TV, where there is no cell phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me.

GOOGLE: I understand sir, but Alexa says you need to renew your passport first.  It expired 6 weeks ago???? !!!!

Todays non virus video nasty..Even after a long lunch I was not sure it was possible..
