Celebrating the Melbourne Cup - part of my "actively seeking happiness" plan.

Looks like a lot of "let your hair down" in the land down under. The Sister Act brought back memories and a smile. Thanks for the insight on the race. Is it a marathon?

Thanks Usiku for watching. The Melbourne Cup is held in Melbourne, one of our biggest cities. The race itself last only 3 minutes but for that short time nearly everyone in Australia stops what they are doing, watches or listens and has a bet. The most popular beting is in sweeps. Usually a work place has a sweep going and al participate. It is a really happy occasion. People dress up (or down) and let their hair down for a day or just a little while.
