Evil Knievil: In the kingdom of the blind the one-eyed man is king

Really lucky chaps such as I live near Chelsea and Westminster hospital where I had my right eye operated upon yesterday for cataract. It was the right eye. The left eye was left out until success with the first eye is established. I would prefer to have had both eyes done at the same time since I am a gambler (see below).

I emerged with a bandage which I hoped would render me piratical in appearance. But, actually, what I got reminds me of the painting of blinded soldiers in the first world war.

I got lucky at Newmarket on Saturday and trousered £52,000 despite blowing £30,000 on the last race. My adviser knows every blade of grass on that course.

REA Holdings: Keep hoovering up the ords (LONL:RE.) at 60p and the prefs (RE.B) at 60p since the palm oil price still shows no sign of weakness and indeed yesterday went into new recent high ground.

Pantheon (LON:PANR) yesterday announced astonishing reserves so to invite an offer. However, I sold family Cawkwell’s 500,000 at 38p on the way up. A chum had told me that he rather thought that PANR’s management had deceived him a year or two ago.

Also, on the disposal list was 250,000 Orosur (LON:OMI) at 19p. This still leaves 1m in the kitty. But developments in Colombia look very positive to me.

    Sirs, might one ask Evil what has happened with his hot tip, Caribbean Investment Holdings just a few weeks back, now down 10% from September? Did I miss a sell flag (I don’t think so) or does he still feel it’s a winner in the longer term?

    I had cataracts done (both eyes) about 15 years ago (my eyes deteriorated early – possibly due to trauma, they said). My vision has been excellent since, though it was a little strange at first, since you have fixed-focus vision (no lens accommodation any more). I had just one done at a time, then the other 3 months later. That is quite standard.
    It is a bit strange also having just one done, because there is a marked difference between your two eyes, and it is not easy to prescribe spectacles. But you should notice the colours as being much more vivid, especially the blues – they seemed to be better than with my birth lenses, as far as I can remember (i.e. before any deterioration). Compare your two eyes.
    Anyway, good luck Simon!
