Saturday sunset in Canberra.
On Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra yesterday afternoon.
Friday’s sunset in Canberra – taken on my blurry old camera.
The sky two hours before the sunset above!
This week marked the twentieth anniversary of the bombing at the Atlanta Olympics – when a man went and blew up Olympic Park because he didn’t want women to have abortions. Seriously. Ugh.
My favourite story of the week. This cat went missing in London eight years ago, and turned up as a stray in PARIS.
Now Google is on Putin’s payroll. They have redone Google Maps to change Ukrainian place names into Soviet Russian names. This is just… sickening. Is there anyone Moscow isn’t capable of buying? If it was anywhere other than Ukraine, the world would care.
Back when gymnastics was gorgeous! Actual artistic gymnastics. That’s the 1996 Olympic champion.
I am not at all excited about the upcoming Olympics. So many drug cheats. So many other issues with the venue. The Australian part of the athletes’ village just caught on fire, and then they were robbed while they were being “saved”!
The maintenance staff were smoking (the village is allegedly a non-smoking location). The Brazilian officials turned off the fire alarms, so…
And the sport I have been following (and was for a while, very closely involved with) my whole life – gymnastics – I am not that interested in anymore. The sport is supposed to be artistic gymnastics, but now it’s just not. This former ballet dancer thinks gymnastics is an ugly, messy sport these days (thank you, new scoring system that pushes big, poorly executed tricks over technique or finesse!).
Anyway, I thought I’d get my Olympics-related rant out now, before the competition begins! 🙂
