Getting older .. and its implications

By definition, we are all getting older .. But, when u crest a certain age, new things happen to you.

In the last 3 days, I have been stuck on multiple trains/tubes, which are standing room only, baking hot, as no aircon etc .. and have been offered a seat .. some, by fairly young females.

This is a bit disconcerting.

In a local supermarket, whilst walking past a stand, it accidentally collapsed .. Honestly, I was no-where near it, and people assumed I had tripped ? or whatever, and as I was picking a few items up, many others stopped to also help, and ask if I was ok ??

In a cinema, I was asked if I wanted the senior ticket-rate ..

All of this, is disheartening .. and does affect your confidence a little, as, generally, gambling needs a little aggression, which, is probably a young-mans attribute.

To counter this, I am starting to change my betting strategies .. and actually think more, about situations.

As you get older, u care less about what people think, and break-rules. If someone complains, I can feign hard of hearing/poor eyesight etc, or just generally act like a drooler.

So, will for now, tolerate all of this - but wont say I am enjoying it.

Betfair USA Youtube channel

A lot has passed me by recently, mostly concerning honesty and honour, and its just too depressing to comment on.

A post in the Bet Angel forum, peaked my interest.

With certain legislative moves being made in the USA, with regard to sports betting, its good to see Betfair USA, working on their youtube channel .. (its a shame, they dont work as hard as Ben Keith (Star Sports), who sponsored the 2017 Greyhound Derby at Towcester, but still.

This video, raises a few questions. But, anyway, its a start :

Some of Ben Keiths stuff :
