    Cheltenham 2017

    As we're now in 'Cheltenham month' and it's just over a week away, I thought we might get the thread up. Discuss ante-posts you've put on, tips you've got and what you think might surprise. Personally still waiting for the decision on Moon Racer for the Champion Hurdle/Supreme. Looks like he'll...

    Dave Allen Resigns

    In the AGM, he's just announced he's resigning and stormed out of the room, triggering chaos amongst the rest of the board and those attending. The pressure was on him, but wow! I can't imagine he will just walk away from all his money though so it's doubtful we've seen the last of him...

    The Last Kingdom

    Anyone else watching this on BBC? I think we're 6 eps deep now, it's my favourite show on TV at the moment. That might be because I'm a huge Bernard Cornwell fan and I've read pretty much all his books, but hey, I still love it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4179452/

    hbk thread time. If you won the jackpot on the lotto, say £10m, would you give any to your club to push them on? As a loan, or as a gift? Would you pay your way onto the board?

    Do you hire a cleaner?

    Me and my missus are thinking about it. £15 a week to have someone do the washing up, clothes washing, clean the house, dust around, polish the furniture, hoover - especially if they do a better job than me! - sounds like a good deal. Whilst we do technically have the time to do it ourselves...

    'How Can She Slap?!' (serious discussion)

    I was just watching this video on Youtube after wondering what the origins of the 'how can she slap?!' meme are... It's quite sad and a little funny at the same time, but what I was wondering is, what are peoples opinions on a guy retaliating to being hit by a woman, by hitting her back? A...

    The Situation with China

    Sorry for the Daily Fail link - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3090728/China-navy-warns-U-S-spy-plane-disputed-South-China-Sea-CNN.html It basically looks like China is laying claim to areas of international/disputed waters in the South China sea and militarising them. I can see them...
