Memphis Sept. 2003
Having been an Elvis fan since 1976 it has always been an
ambition of mine to visit Memphis, the City where He spent His
adult life. It was a long haul to get there , many hours in flight
and waiting around Airports. The food on the flight was nauseous
but we finally touched down in Memphis Airport at 5.30 central
time. Our Hotel was situated about 18 miles from the City centre
and unlike European ones had no in House bar or restaurant.
The weather in Memphis was just
superb, brilliant sunshine every Day and warm pleasant nights.
Memphis is home to 1,700,000 souls and from what I saw, 75% of
them are black. Memphis is very spread out and there is shop after
shop on either side of the many highways stretching for miles.
There was a Bus stop directly outside the hotel and Buses ran
on the hour and for $1.20 took You 18 miles to the City centre.
The Buses have air conditioning but
that apart, are very uncomfortable to travel in. The Streets and
avenues in Memphis run straight, so it almost impossible to lose
The Festival of Dreams.
As we approach the month of March, Racing fans hearts start
to beat a bit faster as the Cheltenham Festival draws near. It
is my belief that Irish Winners this year will be very few. Best
Mate is set fair to become the first horse since the great Arkle
to win three Cheltenham Gold Cups, only a fall, or an injury can
stop this great horse from adding his name to the history books.
For us punters I suggest a few bob
each way on Kings Cliff. The Champion Hurdle is wide open. Defending
Champion, Rooster Booster, will turn up on the day, but I believe
he will find it very hard to hang on to his crown. Flame Creek
is my idea of the winner, but a few bob each way on Spirit Leader,
may yield a profit for you.
Other value bets at this great festival
of Racing are, Moscow Flyer in the Queen Mother Champion Hurdle,
The Real Bandit in the Sun Alliance Chase, Leading jockey at the
meeting may be Michael Fitzgerald, and Leading Trainer may be
Paul Nichols. For value for money I suggest you back Marinstown
in the Bumper, and Paul Maloney to ride a winner at the meeting.
MY IDOL: CELINE DION.
The year 1995 seen Celine Dion releasing
her new French album called D’EUX. This was the biggest selling
French album of all time. It sold over 5 million copies throughout
the globe. There were 2 number one singles on this album, POUR
QUE TU M’AIMES ENCORE and JE SAIS PAS
One year passed by when Celine released her fifth English album.
It is called FALLING INTO YOU. This album was number one across
the world. It remained on the BILLBOARD charts for over 25 weeks.
My favourite songs on this album are ALL BY MYSELF, DECLARATION
OF LOVE and RIVER DEEP, MOUNTAIN HIGH (originally recorded by
Ike & Tina Turner.)
Celine’s next album LET’S TALK ABOUT LOVE was the biggest selling
album that she had ever released. It sold over an incredibly amazing
27 million copies worldwide. On this particular album, Celine
had the chance to work and sing with some of the world’s greatest
singers and songwriters. These included artists such as Carole
King, The Bee Gees, Barbara Streisand and Luciano Pavarotti.
The song called MY HEART WILL GO ON was Celine’s biggest selling
single ever, reaching number one on the charts for over nine weeks.

When the undertaker comes around
wonder of who’s dead hits the countryside
another corpse to the graveyard bound
in a deep hole long and wide.
He wears his black suit and collar neat
the wisest man of all all the mourners fondly him greet and hope
it’s not them next call
The hearse is driven quietly around
to the church with prayers to say as it passes, there is not a
while poor old George is buried today.
The Mass is said, the Gospel read
for the deceased - not long gone the congregation prayers are
been the Good Lords cherished
To the graveside people walk behind
the hearse driven slow but sure another corpse the undertaker
with wreaths and flowers around so pure.
Ah but one is buried and who’s next is going on in his mind
the bold undertaker surely blest will more money in his pocket
He will greet all with mannerly ways as he walks along the neighbours
greet remember those near the end of your days the undertaker
you cannot defeat.
He is shrewd, cunning and a well-dressed man
with a suit as black as coal you better live as best you can or
you will be buried in a six-foot hole.
More flowers, conversation of grief abide the undertaker hears
it all laps all the chatter inside wondering who is next to call.
You could say he is a messenger the angels by his side what are
all the prayers for within his mind abide.
The undertaker is a good sincere man money paid for a service
done a job he does as best he can and it’s not all that much fun.
Everyman for his own skill it’s true to say for all the undertaker
tops the bill with another soul in his call
