Today is mine and Lisa's 8 month anniversary, which is good news for us, but bad news for all those people who are sick to death with this habit of mentioning it on a monthly basis. I'm sure there's a significant drop in my blog visitors around the 29th of each month. But to me it's like the menstrual cycle - you know it's coming, you can't do anything about it, and ultimately it's other people who suffer.

Fortunately though, I'm saving myself up for Valentine's Day, so for now I'll change the subject from anniversaries to birthdays.

Yesterday was the birthday of my best friend Pat. I've known her for less than a year, but I've seen more of her in that time than all my other friends put together. So I think she qualifies as my bestest pal, and we've had some good times together. Most of which involve reckless gambling.

It's not all rosy though - she has a slightly dodgy daughter who hangs around the place and gets in the way a bit when we're trying to chat about horse racing, but on the plus side, I have free rein on the contents of the biscuit jar, and Pat's even been known to bake me a potato (or three). So it's worth putting up with the daughter. I think.

So I'd like to wish Pat a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY (a day late, but what can you do), and give her a hundred grand with my compliments.

Yes, that's right, I'm announcing my selections for the...

Obviously they're all dead certs, and if (sorry, I mean when) all six come in this afternoon, you'll win about a hundred thousand. So here you go...

You've got just under two hours to place your bets. I'll put the champagne on ice.
