    I have got into reading blogs recently and these are two of the best I’ve come across so far ..

    Cubone<br>&<br>Tooting<br>they are both excellent for different reasons and I think there should be a space for them here on the forum to link up to.

    Does anyone else have racing/gambling blogs that they read and would care to share ?

    I’m thoroughly enjoying Cubone’s blog. Thanks for pointing me at that, Dave.

    A minor quibble tho’, ……………………he asks at the end of his most recent posting: "What do you advise?". <br>My reply would be Use the bloody Spellchecker!"

    It seems pedantic, but the mis-spellings spoil an otherwise excellent effort.

    hoofhearted – I presumed you were referring to that specific sentence rather than the entire article. I get it now.

    I quite like the poor spelling and the archaic words .. I’ve been reading it on and off for a bit and I can’t wait for the next installment.

    Tooting’s is good too .. it’s nice too see how a pro-gambler works and thinks, it make me realise how far away for being at that level that I am, thankfully.

    Thanks for the kind words Dave!

    Wasn’t there talk of a separate section here somewhere for bloggers to be listed?

    That’s why I started the thread Tooting .. just a subtle hint, maybe a bit too subtle.

    Well done with the blog though and good luck for tonight .. :biggrin:

    Thanks for those links Dave.

    I was hoping ol’Cubone would re-surface somewhere. Terrific tales from a life at the sharp end,

    Originally I thought hoofhearted was referring to that specific sentence, which is perfectly OK, but he was actually referring to the rest of the article when talking about the spelling mistakes.

    Of course Andrew Mount’s Trend Horses blog used to be worth reading, but now it’s updated about as regularly as Barney Curley runs a horse on its merits…..;)

    Saints alive so you are about Matre

    As to your question

    I have an old coal burning stove with a thin<br> visible metal chimney that resembles half<br> of a drainpipe trouser which is badly blackened with soot.<br> It’s make is Razeen which is nicely inscribed thereon.<br> Blew up about six months ago and I now resort to<br> Billy Conolly’s big slipper when the icicles are hanging

    Oh, as for water – never touch the stuff<br>
