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.
