Plus 8 and dry when driving in.

Tuesday morning brings in our vet for his weekly 'cup of coffee' and this week’s movers and shakers in the BHA charts was Gerard Mentor down 2 to 95.

Mat and I walk up the gallops every morning and now most of our conversation heads to Sport as we have given up on poltics..

Mat goes down the route of the Euros which apparently starts on Friday, while I am still harking on about the lack of wins for the English T20 cricket team…

When Mat talks big and suggests that England T20 World Cup team are just no good and will be out of the competition within the week...I have to remind him that it has been a while since England won anything worthwhile in Football.. Of course, I can remind him what a great year 1966 was..

Wimbledon starts soon and that is I am afraid a one sided conversation.. In between we do have Royal Ascot to agree on..

The Arkle Sales in Ireland start today.

Nelson Mandela is sitting at home watching the telly when he hears a knock at the door.

When he opens it, he is confronted by a little Japanese man, clutching a clip board and yelling, "You sign! You sign!"

Behind him is an enormous truck full of car exhausts. Nelson is standing there in complete amazement, when the Japanese man starts to yell louder. "You sign! You sign!"

Nelson says to him, "Look mate, you've obviously got the wrong bloke. Push off", and shuts the door in his face.

The next day he hears a knock at the door again. When he opens it, the little Japanese man is back with a huge truck of brake pads.

He thrusts his clipboard under Nelson's nose, yelling, "You sign! You sign!". Mr Mandela is getting a bit hacked off by now, so he shoves the littleJapanese man back, shouting:

"Look, push off! You've got the wrong bloke! I don't want them!"

Then he slams the door in his face again.

The following day, Nelson is resting, and late in the afternoon, he hears a knock on the door again.

On opening the door, there is the same little Japanese man thrusts a clipboard under his nose, shouting "You sign! You sign!"

Behind him are TWO very large trucks full of car parts.

This time Nelson loses his temper completely, he picks up the little man by his shirt front and yells at him;

"Look, I don't want these! Do you understand? You must have the wrong name! Who do you want to give these to?"

The little Japanese man looks at him very puzzled, consults his clipboard, and says:

"You not Nissan Main Dealer?
