ON THIS DAY IN MOTORSPORT - MAY 16 SIGNIFICANT EVENTS:| * NASCAR CHAMPION, Tim Flock had a Rhesus monkey co-driver named "Jocko Flocko" with him in his May 16, 1953 Grand National win at Hickory Motor Speedway. Jocko Flocko became the only winning monkey ever. The monkey was retired two weeks later at Raleigh, where the monkey pulled the device to allow the driver to observe the right front tire and was hit by a pebble. At the time, drivers used a device to lift the wheel well to observe tire wear in case of a tire failing). Tim had to do a pit stop to remove the monkey, and he finished third (he would have won without the problem).

Had an enjoyable outing last night at the Grand National's album release concert in Philadelphia with Deejay Shelly and her cool friends. Shelly turned me on to some cool new music, the new album by The Grand Nationals titled, "from the north". I learned from Stephen King and Sebastian Junger that a writer should always have a cool cd playing as they do their work, and this new cd sets nice atmosphere to write to. As far as my future as a writer...feeling hopeful :)
Yet another brilliant weekend at the Grand National, yet another stinking hangover to follow! Managed to spend the whole day in the champagne bar sinking bottle after bottle, and didn't get to see one race!
Farm Hero's Saga - Played and deleted. Candy Crush Saga - Played and Deleted. Lucky Slots and Click Fun Casino - occasionally gamble but only on the Grand National so out of the question. Stop sending me these requests. Id rather lick sulfuric acid off the edge of a razor blade than play them. Thanks

Grand National 2014 Results Aintree racecourse is one of the premier racecourses in the UK. It is the home of The Grand National and almost all of the Grand National horse races have been run here with very few exceptions. The actual racing surface has undergone massive change since the first early races when there were hurdles as well as fences to be jumped and also at one stage a brick wall was amongst the obstacles, but in recent times there have only been minor changes to the track. The racecourse facilities have undergone a huge face lift since 2006 and is shaking off much of the old look and is being brought bang up to date with its modern facilities making it a great place and watch Horse Racing. The course for some time only held The Grand National meeting but now it is adding race meetings to the calendar and is proving to be a very popular venue for other activities, such as conferences and weddings. There is also a golf course in the centre of the course. The racecourse is now also a visitor's ...
