Great week

There was a public holiday on Monday, Valentine's Day on Wednesday, and Chinese New Year on Friday. All events were celebrated locally with gusto.

There has been lots of Winter Olympics on TV. Every four years Canada temporarily becomes a world power.

Volunteers are not supposed to talk to the athletes. However it is okay if they talk to you. My wife said the Norwegians were hilarious and always joking with the volunteers when she helped out at curling in 2010.

If you told me before the Korean Olympics started that the only curling medal we would get would be in mixed doubles, an event barely played at all here, I would have thought you crazy. Both the men's and the women's teams looked badly in need of a good sports psychologist.

But if you told me the most high profile case of doping would be a curler, and it was a curler from Russia, I also would have been incredulous.

We get NBC, CBC, CBC French coverage here. I have been watching them all.
