      Some tough sport, genuine real world highs and lows from Paddy Corkery having a good horse winning a big pot and he doesn't want to sell it to middling small owners losing an extremely promising horse when it had its race won all being commentated on by Davy Russell who is bursting to get back in the saddle once the doctor's tell him his broken neck has repaired well enough!

        Less of the blasphemy, and it a Sunday. History of Fashion was 4th did your bookie pay 4th as a place as its 1-2-3 rules of racing?.
        Some shock for Paddy there on the leader who was hosing in alone until he broke down and face planted Paddy.
        Laid the fav myself in a treble with Liverpool game both to score but the other leg a match lost just before the Leop bumper.

          A bowl, a pack of water wipes and nappy bags is all you need.

          Hot water in the bowl, drop a wipe into it. Nappy and wipe into a bag and into the bin.

          Spent a small fortune on those cartridges on #1. Plus the thing stinks when it starts to get full.
          Was obvious that I was gonna get one of these as a Christmas gift after this.

            Ha ha yes feel a bit foolish now but was roaring at the screen at the time. RC just nailed it at the end, just different gravy but that fall put me up 40% on the day so happy days.

              Just a heads up, Dawn Run documentary on tonight TG4 21:05
              Fear not music and guitar party wankers as its immediately followed by Christy Moore live for two hours. Perfect timing for Lazare I reckon who should just be finishing his dinner around then!

                Partaking in a highly competitive annual Christmas quiz and stuck on some questions. Any ideas for the below?

                Q62 Staycation - where are we visiting?
                1. Where two tens combine in Cork
                2. Where the King sips his G&T
                3. Classical dance in the kitchen
                4. Sounds like an ambulance

                We have 4 = Nenagh...?

                    Another tricky one here.

                    Q65 Fill in the blank space...
                    1. ER UI IO ??
                    2. AV31 AW21 MN21 CN??
                    3. FIGC RFEF DFB ???

                    For #3 we have FIGC = Italian Football Federation, RFEF = Spanish Football, DFB = German Football, but can't place what would be missing.

                                          Yeah this is our best guess so far but felt too obvious. You might be right and we could be overthinking it!

When almost all the activities available to me are with either a 3 year old or a 1 year old, they don't hold much interest for me. Walk in the rain earlier while the young lad was on his scooter was almost a highlight. Nothing to do, yet no free time. Quite the contradiction!

I did however buy the Panasonic breadmaker you linked to a while back. It's brilliant, haven't bought bread in a shop since and done a few other things in it too.

                                                                                                                          I know the mare quite well she has another couple of nice looking ones coming along.

There is a really lovely looking two year old Shirocco gelding who will probably turn up in the sales at some stage, a nice Court Cave colt (was due to be Mount Nelson but we missed his last cover by one day) and she's now back in foal to Shirocco.
