So what’s been happening?

Well.  There has been lots.  Particularly in the sporting world.

Andy Murray didn’t win Wimbledon.  😦  But he did manage to win his first ‘Major’ with the U.S. Open.  Fantastic.  Hopefully, many more.

The Olympics were a success without any problems in terms of terrorism, thankfully.  With a little help from G4 S and a BIG help from the British Army and the British Police Service!  oops!  And, so too were the Paralympics.  Fantastic.

Did the UK have a summer?  Not so fantastic.

Europe won the Ryder Cup!  🙂  Fantastic.  And that was an incredible feat coming from way back.  Only thanks to the passion of Ian Poulter.

Barack Obama successfully won a second term in the White House.  For some.  Fantastic.

And then just a few days ago in England & Wales there were elections for a new type of authority to oversee the police called Police Crime Commissioners.  I will refrain from making any comment on this topic as I think it is a mistake.  And nearly 90% of the voting public appear to agree, as they did not vote!  Not so fantastic.  😦

And now………….Christmas will soon be here.  Bah, humbug!  There are only 37 days to go!  Best get shopping.
