Re: Racing in Japan

There wasn't a lot of info, but there might have been some tweet kerfuffle that ended up with accounts being reported for vid clips? possibly? and then his account was suspended. Perhaps. After about a week he came back locked, I asked to follow and he added me but there's been no new content. I wan...

Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

I think we might be reading too much into the rough translation... I've seen "I was fine" show up in a lot of google translations when I'm looking at Northern Horse Park tweets, etc. In this particular case my guesstimation is that Marble Cake (as a lot of the mares bored out of their minds at the s...

Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

Wondering of Uma or Tachyon can make sense of this tweet about Marble Cake? I don't see a produce record for yet though she's 8 now. https://twitter.com/buena_vista23/status/1147986747067777024 Google translated it for me as "I am struggling with my first childcare." Perhaps that means she is havin...

Re: Stallion News

via Kate Hunter on twitter, King Kamehameha (JPN), champion son of Kingmambo and influential Japanese sire, has been pensioned from stud duties at Shadai. While it's not entirely unexpected, and he is 19 years old, it's still a big loss for Japan. :| At least there's Lord Kanaloa (and hopefully Rey ...

Re: Stallion News

I dunno but it surprised me a little to see (at least I think so, even though it's blurred) the handler is only wearing a baseball cap... usually they've had helmets since he's so unpredictable with his feet. So maybe that *is* a bit of mellowing...? :lol:

Re: Money Pool for Hosting costs for a year

Is there any fine/fee/punitive measure if the pool is cancelled and redone? Would that be the easiest...? If there aren't a lot of donations yet. I would be willing to redo mine, speaking just for myself... 8-) anyhoo just wondering.

Re: Earthquakes, Tsunamis & Volcanos

I hate the way the pulse/roll makes me feel, kinda disoriented & kinda nauseated and I'm half a state away, sheesh. Definitely bigger & longer but epicenter was just about the same, 11 miles outside of Ridgecrest in San Bernadino County according to the USGS. Hopefully not a lot of damage... *finger...

It was very easy to do!

For those doing USD conversions, $1.00 = 0.89ish Euros.

Re: Earthquakes, Tsunamis & Volcanos

I felt a roll, wondered if I was dizzy for a second, then wondered if it could possibly be a small quake... switched over to twitter and yup, earthquake. And I'm over 450 miles away from the epicenter!

(okay maybe 300miles as the crow flies, but there's mountains and stuff in the way)
