Enjoy watching the Olympics - quite a few of the sports.

As for this quote from GTB:

anyone else here gonna be shouting & screaming at the telly when its on?

Don`t think I`ll be doing that so much ha

Actually I love the track events - sprint, intermediate distance - and field events of pole vault, discus, and hammer toss. Soccer is somewhat fun. The sprint swims are also solid.

I watch but not super passionate. It will be a good atmosphere. Ha GB - you and 1976 reference...

As for Canada, we do better at the Winter Olympics so...yeah I prob get more passionate then even though I love the summer times.

Formula 1 should be an Olympic sport too

I would tend to disagree with F1 being an Olympic sport due to its high scale and the nature/style of the Olympics.

Security.....XYZ called me up; it is nice to have been called out of the blue & directly be asked without having applied for the role/position. It would appear that they had kept my details on file from another business unit involving the Westfield Shopping complex in London.

This is the second time they have called me & asked me directly without me specifically applying for the role in question - the other time being some concert venues in neighboring counties. It is a nice ego boost I admit !

I have not said yes, they have given me until May to apply - I have other things in the pipeline.
