  1. Well done Puha

    I so wish it could be like that but unfortunately the what ifs will follow you all your life, that's just how some of us are made, despite the fruitlessness of the pursuit.
  2. Dual Venue Racing Calendar

    The correct question should be "what is your B?" not who Plan B is a very intricate scheme, by the time I've arrived at my eventual destination (in my mind) any bad air at home is forgotten The scheme involves avoiding detection, changes of clothes, changing flights, train stations, buses the whole lot. I sometimes have a look at the place in google maps, have never been there, but it struck a chord when I was a teenager and it is my mental bolt hole. The planning is quite exhausting mainly because if I walk out, I never want to be found, so there
  3. Dual Venue Racing Calendar

    I think there should always be a "Plan B" for everything in life, and there is no reason why racing should be any different. I have plan bs for every aspect of my life, marriage (46 yrs), work,and the immediate future, it's a coping mechanism and I don't think I am on any spectrum
  4. It never stops.

    Anyhow the survey asks if you owned a horse would you participate in another survey. I said I would. I then get a poorly put together survey (not even online) by ier.com.au. How much do these consultants cost. This is crazy. Thanks for that snippet. Have mail in my inbox from IER, had no idea who they were and have left it opened till I decide whether to delete or not, obviously will now delete email

  9. montes on the way

    Was on the sports section of TV1 news tonight so you should be able to get a replay somewhere. Good article, interviews with Michelle, Maurice, Tim and a couple of jockeys so had great exposure.

  11. A story we should all heed....

    He might be a great hardworking young man but why didn't he tell this lot to go and get f*^×"#d? Unfortunately depression doesn't work like that.

  15. joke thread

    Dear Agony Aunt, My husband is a liar and a cheat.. He has cheated on me from the beginning and when I confront him, he denies everything. What's worse, everyone knows he cheats on me. It's so humiliating. Also, since he lost his job 15 years ago, he hasn't even looked for a new one. All he does all day is smoke cigars, play golf, cruise around and shoot ball with his buddies and has sex with hookers, while I work so hard to pay our bills. Since our daughter went away to college and then got married he doesn't even pretend to like me, and hints that I may be a lesbian. What should I do? Signed: Confused Dear Confused: Grow up and dump him. You don't need him anymore! Good grief woman, you're running for President of the United States!
