Do You Want To Become A Vet?

Posted on 6 July, 2014  in Education, Tips

If you have a passion for animals you may consider to become a vet. Without a question, this is a very satisfying but often also demanding profession.

For starters, if you want to be a vet you will need to go to university and take a veterinary degree. In many universities in the UK it is possible to obtain those degrees approved by the RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons). Among those universities are Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, London (the Royal Veterinary College) and Nottingham.

If You’re Looking For A Good School in Hertfordshire

Posted on 5 July, 2014  in News, Tips

As so many we faced a really tough decision in regards to the education of our children. Either we have them go to a public school but then risk possibly that the children don’t get the best education they can have, or we have them go to a private school but then wouldn’t know how our children would do if they’re away from home for a lengthy amount of time. For some children, being sent to a private school could actually be rather traumatic.

3_2951_eThis is the reason we had a very thorough talk recently where we wanted to explain our children the benefits of an excellent independent school such as the Kingshottschool in Hertfordshire.

We wanted to know what our children think about this idea. We also had Mike and Lorena over with their two boys Andrew and Harry who are at this private school at the moment to get some real insight from them.

Turns out that Andrew and Harry really like this prep school and spent the entire afternoon convincing our children that they should definitely join with them.

I could see our children getting really big eyes especially when those other two told them about their frequent excursions, theater plays and especially about their sporting activities like soccer and rugby.

At the end of the day, our children really wanted to go there too and it seemed this couldn’t happen soon enough. Talk about a big surprise there since we really didn’t expect this to happen.

As for us parents and the Kingshottschool, it is one of the independent school Hertfordshire which I immediately liked based on what Andrew and Harry’s parents told us. I have to say that the idea being able to give your children the best education takes a huge burden of us now. I have no doubt in my mind that it will all turn out great for them. What we do now is basically a test-run where we signed our children up to see how it goes. Of course they can always choose to come back if for some reason they would not like their new independent school

My Big Passion: Horse Racing

Posted on 2 July, 2014  in Blog

It was about 10 years ago when I visited some local stables as part of my work. In this time I not only cared for a good number of horses, I’ve also gotten to really like horse racing which gradually developed into a real passion. Obviously, with my past of being a vet, the well-being of the horses was always my top priority. But here I can confidently say that the overwhelming majority of horse owners and jockeys treat their horses very respectfully and most of them have really a loving relationship with their animals.

Bob Rothman Provides Professional Horse Racing Tips

Bob Rothman Provides Professional Horse Racing Tips

Once I started to get interested in horse racing here in the United Kingdom I at first saw it more as an exciting and entertaining thing, not so much as something where I went to for the purpose of winning some money.

But this changed when I met several people at the tracks who seemed to make a pretty good living from the races alone. It didn’t make much sense to me that I barely every won while some others seemed to have some ways figured out to win a lot more often.

So I started to do some research there but couldn’t really find anything helpful for a year or two. This was until I came across the Horse Racing Pro website that is owned by Bob Rothman. It was actually Andrew who told me about it.

Bob Rothman is a seasoned horse racing professional who is now providing a service where he shares horse racing tips with others. According to his bio, his system is so good that he is now banned at almost any horse racing track in the United Kingdom.

When I signed-up with his horse racing tips subscription I can only describe it as that it opened my eyes in terms of how to win at the races consistently and it also taught me about all the mistakes to avoid when you’re betting at the horses.

Oh, and let’s not forget:I did of course start to win at the tracks! My losing streaks got far less until the winnings outweighed my losses. And this is only possibly with solid horse racing tips, tips from a professional and not some shady system. Because of that I can highly recommend that you check out Bob Rothman’s site if you’re into horse racing like I am!
