Crown is cashing in on the Melbourne Cup celebrations in a big way. A temporary TAB has been set up outside the Casino, so that punters have another outlet to lose money. In the hotel foyer beautiful people pose for photos in their new frocks and fascinators in front of special orchid displays for backdrops. Some are not so beautiful and many young women are overweight and need to go on the Camino! All this is happening at 9.30 in the morning.
It's hot today, so I'm making gazpacho.
