A week at the races

Here in Melbourne, it is Spring Racing season. And the media goes sick about how classy it all is. I was there at Flemington on Saturday and I can tell you there is not too much classy about the chicks losing shoes, $30 bottles of bubbly with crown seals, fist fights on the public lawn and the lowcut "fall out'.

Here in Melbourne very little business is done this week. Cup day is a holiday and a massive chunk of the office workforce disappear for Oakes on Thursday as well. Plus there is a large percentage of these missing on Wednesday and Friday due to hangovers. To top this all off Monday is an RDO for the building industry. All in all, productivity could be boasted by 2% pa if the week was done away with. But then we would get to smell the roses. They were out in full bloom on Saturday at Flemington.
