Makybe Diva has won 3 Melbourne Cups in a row. This has never been done before and it was a special day. Not every day can you say you saw history made but today was one of those days.
As soon as the race was finished the horse was was promptly retired. The Melbourne Cup is a great day for Australia. It is even a public holiday in many areas of the country.
I have spent the day sitting in the spa drinking Coopers Sparkling Ale watching the horses go around the track.
Later in the week I will get back to work and start talking about some of the gadgets I have been looking at including a different way to network your house, a cheap 4mp digital camera for less than $250AU with 3 x optical zoom and digital TV.
Ok for now I must get back into the spa and soak the wrinkles on my hands.
