Hello Melbourne! It is your day! Today the Melbourne Cup will be run - this is Australia's richest horserace - so I hope all you punters out there will go home rich! Have fun at your luncheons and parties!
Flemington Racecourse will be stunning with the display of roses and I have picked a few little buds from my garden - the yellow ones are for you Miriam !

I received the above email this morning - it came Anonymous, but I guess it was written by Maribeth - a nice little bit of information to have, thanks!
