Plus 9 and dry when driving in.

It was so like spring here yesterday, and at Wincanton which is normally one of the coldest racecourses in the country

That drive really does not get any better. Yesterday my sat nav tried a new route, well part of it was new, through Bradford Upon Avon.. I have to say that if I was being driven (which I wasn’t) and woke to see I was in Bradford upon Avon I would have assumed my driver had mistaken Stratford for Wincanton..Shame.. we might have had a better day!

Interesting that I had a few people disagree with my thoughts on Leicester yesterday..Life is about timing, I suppose I missed the scrum for food..

Friday and the Welsh team here.. 10 folk from Chepstow Racecourse here for a visit second lot.. Bacon buttes after and the odd vegan variety too, for one..

Philip Martin sent this one over....

Two Englishmen businessmen in Cork- were sitting down for a break in their soon-to-be new store.

As yet, the store wasn't ready, with only a few shelves set up.

One said to the other, "I bet any minute now, some thick tourist is going to walk by, put his face to the window and ask what we're selling."

No sooner were the words out of his mouth when, sure enough, a curious Irishman walked to the window, had a peek, and in a Thick Irish accent asked "What are you selling' here?”

One of the men replied sarcastically, "We're selling arse-holes."

Without skipping a beat, the Irishman said, "You’re doing well ... Only two left!"
