Happy Olympic games to all you banishers of bullshit out there! 😉
So, unless you’re currently cryogenically frozen, living in a crater on the surface of the moon or your name is Mark Williams, then you can’t fail to have noticed that there’s a little event happening right now on these Isles of Wonder.
Yes, that’s right, in case you missed it, Friday saw the opening of London’s third Olympic games and the end of a torch relay that covered 8,000 miles, including 8,000 people over 70 days.
The excitement has been building for some time now and if you were one of the Billion + people that watched the opening ceremony, you’ll know what all the fuss was about. Wow! Say what you like about us Brits, but we sure know how to put on a show!
Love it or loathe it, for almost the next three weeks, you will not be able to escape the games. It will be on every major tv channel and radio station around the world. There’ll be records broken, medals won and no doubt, tears of joy and heartache. Some 2,000 athletes from around the globe will be competing in events that date back to 776 BC and the world will be watching.
So sit back, watch in wonder and wish you were fitter with the rest of us. Good luck to everyone taking part and all those amazing people who helped prepare for what looks like it will be a truly wonderful spectacle. (oh and go Team GB!) 😉
And so to the matter in hand. This weeks offering.
Now, for those of you who stop by regularly, you’ll know that my usual style is to tell it like it is right? And that is exactly what I am going to do today.
This weeks book is ‘Red Mist’ by Patricia Cornwell.
