    Is this another cleverly disguised thread which is really just a money-making scheme for Marc?

    I used to love the gee-gees (especially when I used to go to the Allied Breweries sponsored race ray at Leicester) - stayed in the beer tent all day. Mmmmmmmmmm Draught Burton Ale and pies (no, not draught pies).

    For sheer spectacle, the Grand National takes some beating. It's just a pity that so many of the horses end up as so much dog food or glue.

    Lord, with the Melbourne Cup its not the race itself which is the spectacle, its the people involved, fashions on the field, all the punters and so on.

    Now we're cutting to the chase. Come on, Bronc - it's the women isn't it, strolling around in their flowing summer frocks which if you can get the sun just at the right angle......

    excuse me, I've got to go for a lie down.

    I've got 3 tips for you, marc :

    1. Look both ways before crossing the road
    2. Try taking a 7-iron from just off the green and using it like a putter
    3. Traffic cones only make good hats for students on pub crawls.
