WORKING HARD TO BRING ART AND CULTURE TO BMEWS. THANK YOU.

While America votes its future, the Aussies are hard at play.

Take a look at this. See the link too. Oh what fun? Guess so for some. Hope they can recall it all the day after.

Oh by the way.

I made the huge mistake of letting myself read some comments on our election. Ppl here with NO idea how America works urging us to vote Obama.

Anger inducing.

And then, and I do not know how, ALL of my mail in my YHOO inbox just up and went.  I was clearing out the trash, trash was highlighted so I know I had it correct, but somehow, poof. My inbox emptied. Damn.

And you thought Ascot was a bit racy! Aussies’ big day out at the Melbourne Cup

By Deborah Arthurs

More than 105,000 people flocked to Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne for the two-mile race, which has become a social, cultural and sporting icon for Australia - and a large number of them were ladies dressed to impress.

But in time-honoured fashion, as the champagne flowed and races were won - or lost - the racegoers became ever-more dishevelled, with some kicking off their shoes to feel the grass of the race track under their bare feet.

British racing meets have long had a reputation for getting a bit messy as the day develops, but the hedonistic Melbourne crowds showed the UK that they can party just as hard as both winners and losers sank gallons of booze and caused havoc around the racecourse.
