Many years ago when I was galloping my pony around the 10 acre paddock next to our house I decided that we would be fast enough for the Melbourne cup. Mum promptly told me otherwise to which I became very upset and found myself singing "I'm a jockey". So I wrote it down and entered it in the Bacchus Marsh show (not exactly sure what category) I was wrapped to get an encouragement award... Say no more!
I never became a jockey instead I opted for the safer path of dressage riding, that was until 2010 when I fractured my sacrum falling from a horse I had recently imported in hope to reach Olympic selection.
The fall has ended my career as a professional dressage rider and so all I am left with is my singing career!
Just kidding! re the singing career....
I hope anyone that listens to this understands that I am well aware that I can in no way sing! It was recorded for a bit of fun, and often gets played after a few drinks with friends!
After Michelle Payne won the Melbourne Cup my phone went crazy from friends saying I'm a Jockey, I'm a female Jockey so here it is! Michelle may be offended if I call it a tribute but believe me it is a song that carries a lot of emotion and a honest story of a young girls love, desire and determination to achieve greatness with her palomino pony Smokey!
I would also like to mention Stefan Waltersson who not only wrote the music but also went through the process of recording it in record time and after a couple of beverages. I am sure Stefan would have preferred to actually work with the recording and polish off the music so I apologise for publishing such a raw product :) I could see the frustration building at my sheer lack of ability to even sing one note, as he said "even auto tune wont help as it wont be able to recognise what notes you are singing"! Despite this he remained supportive that I was giving it a go! So thank you Stefan, if you go to his profile you can see the music he is normally creating :)
Lovely !!! Passionate horse racing fan here and know and appreciate the Jockeys skill, determination and passion - there have been around a dozen jockeys from our family. Thanks for sharing Your talents and passion for horses.
This is a unique real vampire website for vampires as well as the curious. It has valuable information for any real vampire and is based on scientific evidence. It also leads to other good websites for real vampires.
This is why I "think" Im a real vampire They have no desire to use us as lab rats or slaves. Before reading any farther on this site, This website is not made for poser vamps, close-minded people, or those who think that they are, or claim to be a vampire because they think the spirit of a vampire entered them at some time making them a vampire. We call these people posers, which they are; they are confused lost children. This site is not here for them in any way! It is for real vampires, curious people, and open-minded skeptics. The best compliment that you can give to this site, is telling all of your friends about it.
Real vampires are not pure fiction.
The Headache Paradox: It is scientifically impossible to have a headache, seeing that there are no pain receptors in the brain. Yet we continue to search for answers to what causes a headache, because we all know that headaches do exist.
Between a combination of the fact that our brains are roughly nothing more than a highly advanced mass of nerves, and that every function is controlled by signals that our brain sends through our nerves to the rest of our bodies, I think that if we could somehow make our nerves send stronger, more efficient signals at a quicker speed it would have a lot of different results. Including heightened sense (both physical and psychic) moving quicker both running and walking along with arm movement etc. The brain being just nerves would obviously also be effected, resulting in quicker more efficient thinking, which naturally would make us smarter, more observant, and have much sharper reflexes.
Some say that is an overly simplified form of how the brain functions, which it is. To them I say make the axons 12-15% wider, resulting in signals being sent much more quickly through the brain. Allowing neurons to create more connections without loss of speed, and the 10,000+ miles of blood vessels in the brain doubling as an additional cooling system for the brain. I could write a book on the cascade of effects that alone causes for people when they are changed in to a real vampire, however for now I will leave it in this simplified form.
