25... BC3 Collapses

Alas, once again, racing finds itself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.  This is the link to the article in today's "Age" - run both in print and online.  There is no photo credit.  Bill Vlahos Syndicate Loses its Edge.

Finally, here's a little bit of trivia for you..  Today is the 11th December 2013.  Write it down..  11/12/13..  I think I want to sign lots of things today and date them...  Then I realise thinking about the date reminds me that I am down to 25 days until our move to Melbourne.  My head is beginning to spin with it all.  If I could just concentrate on packing instead of bouncing around like a yo-yo it would be a lot easier.  But I can't turn work offers down, and they are (this is a good thing, don't get me wrong!) coming in thick and fast.  In addition to trying to manage the kids' workload and schedule at this time of year which is always crazy, as well as trying to pack and organise things for the new house, I feel like I'm twisting and turning a bit - "These here are crazy times......".
