The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Grand National

The Grand National at Aintree was won yesterday by a horse of the name Don't Push It.

Ridden by Tony McCoy and owned by J P McManus / trained by Jonjo O'Neill.

Not bad odds for a joint favourite - 10-1

I had forgotten that the race was being run and I'm not even sure if it was shown on the TV - my mind is too busy at this time of the year planning what to do on our allotment ( a busy time planting out the coming season's vegetables )

I guess some of the punters will be happy at a 10-1 win but not the bookies of course.

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
