ASCOT – a little bit of my UK history

Its the last day of the Ascot races....part of the English season...all the great and the good turn out!   The Queen attends..hoping one of her horses will win.  If you are one of the fortunate toffs  invited into the Royal Enclosure....there is strict dress code.... the men wear morning dress, top hats and all the women wear absurd clothes and ridiculous hats...strawberries and cream...champagne flowing.  Fun for some!      The Queens Coronation gown drawn by ...

EXERCISE!

  Exercise...ah, that magic word, some of us love it, many of us hate it, but we really all need it.   In times past we worked physically so much harder, even the rich rode horses, fought duels and walked and we lived shorter lives, so didn't have to worry about holding our bodies together for so much longer!
