Race night

We had a video race night and Ange and I managed to pick 8 total losers in eight races. Still the event raised over £500 for a local day centre so it was worth it!

To pick 8 losers does not matter, you all were the winner by raising that amount of money. It is the thought that counts.
......the beer washed down the disappointment of NOT winning. ? smile
Bill Phillips: The beer was fine and it was good fun.
It does reinforce my thinking about gambling (the serious stuff). You hear of regular gambllers saying that they do well in their betting shop adventures. But I'm sure they are in denial about how much they lose. But I mustn't moan about the fact that they can't now pay their household bills cause it's onl a bit of fun .... and after all they are keeping the betting shops in business.

Rant over. Oh dear I need to get out more and have some fun.
Bill Phillips: We lost four quid! I never bet for real but this was fun. You should only ever bet what you can afford to lose. Sadly too many people don't

It's not the winning that counts: it's the amount of beer you can drink

And the monies raised for good causes
Bill Phillips: A fine philosophy
lol! That shows consistency! All in a good cause, and a good collage to document it. (:o)
Bill Phillips: I don't gamble but had I actually backed the horse i thought would win the Cheltenham gold cup this year I could have made a few quid!!
This would be the local day centre for bad photographers then Bill.I have put your name down for it,from Monday to Friday.
Bill Phillips: Sadly the real day centre is threatened with closure. all part of Cameron's big society I suppose.

Guiness is always a fine 'pick me up' after losing on the gee-gees.
Bill Phillips: They do a decent drop of the black stuff at the legion
Sounds as though you have the kind of luck I would have, Bill!
Bill Phillips: I don't gamble Tom and this shows why. Mind you I should have backed the horse I fancied for the Gold cup this year...it won!!

Bill Phillips: I don't think gambling is for me Martin!
You lost the race but you won a Guiness Bill. Very nice collage!
