On the Olympics
I get so used to watching the Olympics I expect them to keep going – but they close this weekend.
The women’s hockey final between US-Canada was an epic encounter. Congratulations to the Canadians.
The ice dancing finals were very enjoyable as the top five pairs were awesome! I’m not a judge, but it’s a shame their was so much whining from the silver medalists and their fans.
The ski cross and snowboard cross races are exciting and entertaining!
For sure, for sure … and speaking for myself … there is considerable amounts of eye candy present among the athletes.

The situations in Syria, Ukraine, Thailand, and Venezuela are bothersome. Interesting how so many events are about power.
Thursday I heard a fascinating interview about US-Russia relations. Listening to experts (and not politicians) is a refreshing change of pace and a learning experience.
Our accountant lives on the opposite side of town, so earlier this week I took advantage of meeting him when he was closer while at his wife’s medical appointment. The list of doctors on the office door included Warren G. Harding III – yep – grandson to a US President from the past.
Because I hope to get one more act in before the actual move, I’m aiming for Act 2 of Life: The Musical next week … probably Wednesday night. Look for an announcement on the next edition of Monday Morning Entertainment.
For those interested in movie tidbits, here’s a slideshow about some of the films with Cincinnati as the set.
