Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A much better day for us, yesterday.

And it looks like we're going to end the month on a good note.

Currently we are running at a 27.62% strike rate for the top rated horse for the month of August...

Probably the best August we've ever had.

Year to date we are running at a 27.12% strike rate and, although we'll take a blip in October (we always do), it looks like our best year to date.

For more detail, here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results

Something to make you smile...

Slide Down the Banister

As You Slide Down the Banister of Life, Remember:

1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written an impressive new book. It's called "Ministers Do More Than Lay People."

2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and be Mary.

3. The difference between the Pope and your boss...the Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.

4. My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.

5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.

6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once. The seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.

7. It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

8. A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives the impression that he just cleaned the whole house.

9. My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

10. A blonde said, "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was relieved when he told me all I needed was turn signal fluid."

11. I'm so depressed. My doctor refused to write me a prescription for Viagra. He said it would be like putting a new flagpole on a condemned building.

12. My neighbour was bit by a stray rabid dog. I went to see how he was and found him writing frantically on a piece of paper. I told him rabies could be treated, and he didn't have to worry about a Will. He said, "Will? What Will? I'm making a list of the people I want to bite."

13. Definition of a teenager? God's punishment for enjoying sex.

14. As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way.

New Words for the Workplace

Essential NEW WORDS FOR editions for the work-place vocabulary:

Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.

A manager, who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and then leaves.

The process by which people seem to absorb success and advancement by sucking up to the boss rather than working hard.

The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get screwed and die.

An office filled with cubicles.

When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on.
(This also applies to applause from a promotion because there may be cake.)

The on-line, wired generation's answer to the couch potato.

Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What yuppies turn into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids or start a "home business".

A person who seems to thrive on being stressed out and whiny.

Euphemism for swiping free photocopies from one's workplace.

The fine art of whacking the crap out of an electronic device to get it to work again.

The rarefied organizational layers beginning just above the rank and file. Decisions that fall from the "adminisphere" are often profoundly inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve. This is often affiliated with the dreaded
"administrivia" - needless paperwork and processes.

Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message "404 Not Found," meaning that the requested document could not be located.

That minuscule fraction of time in which you realise that you've just made a BIG mistake (e.g. you've hit 'reply all').

Surreptitiously farting while passing through a cube farm, then enjoying the sounds of dismay and disgust.


Today's early test ratings show 45 rated races from six meetings. All races are rated.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
