Olympic ruins – proof of a mugs practice

God knows why we have this awful thing called “The Olympic Games” It’s horrible on many levels, but the squandering of a country’s money on facilities to host them, is proof of govern-“mental” abberation and delusion. Often poor countries win deliriously, only to be left very much worse off.

The Olympic Games should take place in ONE venue where it is held every four years. In that place, contestants and countries can vie for their etherial moments of glory and stop wasting money.

In fact, the Furlongs don’t give a damn about the Olympic Games. They are just a mugs game really…

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
