Brief encounters with life and other things
Brilliant! I am determined not to see any Olympic stuff either - should be reasonably easy for me, Mr T doesn't like sports and we don't have a TV!Enjoy your Olympic free time.Mrs T x
Good to hear!However .... confession .... my Church had a service aimed at young people to celebrate what I think you might say are the Olympic ideals. I felt I aught to go and I must say I thought this service was very good.However ..... we did then all go outside as the flame was going right past and I have to say I was appalled by the 'big sponsor' hype of the whole thing. The huge coaches for both Samsung and Cola-Cola and also for Lloyds. The Olympics is just a huge money thing and ..... dare I say it? ...... I'm sure the government is hoping it is an opiate for the populace, much in the same way as the Roman senators used to put on games to keep the plebs happpy.Oops .... am I being a tad contentious? Ummm ...
Phew thank you xx
I totally agree, Elaine, well said.
