    Quote: from mulls74 on 1:57 pm on Sep. 7, 2006[br]As someone involved in Racing Ahead, we have had a lot of positive feedback but the problem has been getting it in front of people.<br>

    I’ve had Racing Ahead a couple of times and enjoyed it but availability is a major factor in me not getting more issues.

    Pacemaker and Thoroughbred Owner and Breeder are two very good magazines but both are slanted towards the breeding side which will prove interesting for some but not for others.

    Being a strong jockey and being able to get a horse to settle don’t necessarily go hand in hand. Some jockeys can settle a horse better than others but strength has little to do with it.

    Like many others on here I don’t know what to say. Life seems so cruel and unfair at times. I don’t know you LRM, but my thoughts are with you and your family. And although its probably fairly insignificant, thank you for this forum Daylight, it introduced me to a whole world of racing forums. You made a difference to me. May you rest in peace.<br>

    Once a year habit? Going to the gym! Oh, and washing the car, which I did today so that should last me until next year.

    You have my full support Zoz. On my way to work and back I have the pleasure of negotiating what I would desribe as a ‘medium sized’ roundabout; not a mini one, but not a big proper one either, which provides access to a factory shopping outlet. This means only one thing – tourists! I spend at least a good couple of minutes a day waiting for non-indicating drivers already on the roundabout to drive past me only for them to take the exit before where I’m trying to get on. Conversely though, I have learned that if they are indicating to take the exit before mine then their indication normally means thay are continuing around the roundabout.

    The greatest hazard though, which I more than occassionally encounter on said roundabout is the reversing driver, who having missed their turn off decides that instead of driving back around they’ll just reverse back round instead.

    Just for you, Razeen:

    Wha’s Like Us?, by  T Anderson Cairns.

    The average Englishman in the home he calls his castle, slips into his national costume-a shabby raincoat- patented by Chemist Charles Macintosh from Glasgow, Scotland.

    Enroute to his office he strides along the English lane, surfaced by John Macadam of Ayr, Scotland.

    He drives an English car fitted with tyres invented by John Boyd Dunlop, Veterinary Surgeon of Dreghorn, Scotland.

    At the office he receives the mail bearing adhesive stamps invented by John Chalmers, Bookseller and Printer of Dundee, Scotland.

    During the day he uses the telephone invented by Alexander Graham Bell, born in Edinburgh, Scotland. At home in the evening his daughter pedals her bicycle invented by Kirkpatrick Macmillan, Blacksmith of Thornhill, Dumfriesshire, Scotland.

    He watches the news on T.V. an invention of John Logie Baird of Helensburgh, Scotland and hears an item about the U.S. Navy founded by John Paul Jones of Kirkbean, Scotland.

    Nowhere can an Englishman turn to escape the ingenuity of the Scots.

    He has by now been reminded too much of Scotland and in desperation he picks up his Bible, only to find that the first man mentioned in the good book is a Scot-King James VI-who authorised its translation.

    He could take to drink but the Scots make the best in the world.

    He could take a rifle and end it all but the breech-loading rifle was invented by Captain Patrick Ferguson of Pitfours, Scotland.

    If he escaped death, he could find himself on an operating table injected with Penicillin discovered by Sir Alexander Fleming of Darvel, Scotland, and given Chloroform, and anaesthetic discovered by Sir James Young Simpson, Obstetrician and Gynaecologist of Bathgate, Scotland.

    Out of the anaesthetic he would find no comfort in learning that he was as safe as the Bank of England founded by William Paterson of Dumfries, Scotland.

    Perhaps his only remaining hope would be to get a transfusion of guid Scottish blood which would entitle him to ask-

    Wha’s Like Us?

    Sounds nice but I cannot face any alcohol today.

    Hasn’t it been a beautiful day though? I have spent the afternoon lying in the sun, but have now come inside to cool down. It seems so far away from the cold, dark, windy and wet winter days we get.

    Minstrel, I’d far rather read one of Ian’s postings than yours; his are well constructed and easily read, which cannot be said for yours. I also think insulting Ian’s wife is taking things one step too far and such comments chould not belong on what, generally, is a friendly site.

    I’ll hold my hands up to being one of the negative ones. For one, I can’t be bothered with the endless press coverage for the next 7 years, and also, like Ian think its a bad economic decision. With the NHS pretty much close to crisis point and various other public services suffering, not only have we spent a fortune on promoting London as the venue, now we have to spend even more on providing the facilities.

    Terrible news. My sincere condolences go out to his family. I never knew Phunter but he always came across as a decent and genuine man. RIP.
