When I do catch something, I find myself going for the Aussies if GB is not in the picture. I haven't heard too much about Canada. I would love to see GB bring home some really important golds since this is their year to shine as the hosts. I have a choice of catching up on some much needed housework or the Olympics. Housework is never any fun. I think I have made my decision. Go GB, Aussie and Canada.

Other than the badminton scandal, I think these Olympics have gone pretty smooth. And Romney had the nerve to ask "if Britian was ready." How do you cook crow?

I am watching the equestrian team event right now. I love the designs of the jumps. One is a double decker bus, another is the Tower Bridge with the Big Wheel, Abby Road, The Tower, The Gates of Buckingham Palace, and so many other famous sights of London. Perfect for these Olympics.

I like it better that they are not held on the same year.

Boxing is no longer popular. Bring on the MMA.

Thank you.

Thought you might enjoy a side note. There are certain times of the year when companies do not hire any one. From Thanksgiving to January 2nd. And during Olympic Years. Absenteeism is high during those times.
