Hello Dear Readers!
You know, this world can be so frustrating.
August is such a fantastic month. Not only does the weather tend to grace us with the odd glimpse of the sun (Sometimes for as many as 3 consecutive days!), it also sees the annual celebration off my arrival in this world (see Older Not Wiser), along with a host of other anniversaries. There has been the start of one World War and the end of another. There was the establishment of the first national fire service, the first regular police detective force, the foundation of the International Red Cross, and the sale of the first mass produced car
This year has also seen the month marked by the advent of the sporting extravaganza known as the Olympic Games, and this is the source of my current frustrations.
