focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

I’ve been putting in some pretty long hours recently and…

Today it seems to have caught up with me as I seem to have slightly slept thorough my alarm clock.

It used to go off at 5am (4am UK time) but, in order to get more done…

I set it to 3am (2am UK time – yes, it does exist) about a week ago.

Today, it may have gone off but I have no recall.

Thus, I am running a bit behind today.

The ratings go out automatically (and, indeed, have already gone out) but the Spotlight Ratings are going to have to wait until about 9am.

The links for them are posted below but, they won’t work until about that time.

I do apologise for this, today (being Sunday) is going to be a sort of day off for me – sleeping through the alarm suggest that I need a day off.


Focus Ratings

focusI was watching the results coming in yesterday and I knew that it was going to be a pretty decent day.

It felt a bit more like the sort of Saturday that I would normally expect.

Which is pretty good bearing in mind that it’s only been two weeks since UK racing came back.

And only one week for the Irish racing.

Something to make you smile…

Bear in the Woods

Two guys were walking in the woods one day, and they all of a sudden came across a bear. The bear noticed them, and started growling and generally getting really mean.

The bear started to chase one of the guys, who, as it turns out, was from Czechoslovakia. The bear soon caught up with him, and ate him alive. The other guy turned around and ran for his life.

A little while later, the second guy found a park ranger station and told his story. The ranger took his gun, and they both went out in search of the bear, in order to destroy it.

Soon, they came across two bears, one male, and one female. The ranger turned to the other guy and said: “Quick… tell me which bear ate your friend!” The ranger levelled his gun and got ready to shoot.

“I’m not really sure,” said the other guy, “they both look similar.”

“QUICK! Make up your mind!” said the ranger.

“O.K.,” said the other, “it was the male.”

The ranger promptly aimed and shot the female bear. The male ran off. Using his knife, the ranger cut open the belly of the female and found the body of the other man.

“But why didn’t you shoot the male when I thought it was the male who ate my friend?” the other man asked.

“Well,” said the ranger…

“I never trust anyone who says that the Czech’s in the male!”

Whatever you are up to today…
