Support: The small things…

Renovations 013During the year leading up to the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics, my employer, the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resource (MEMPR) created a part time job for me. The position was structured so I could work remotely – from a coffee shop near Elk Lake or in an internet cafe in Europe.

A few people at MEMPR were instrumental in its creation.  One just returned from a vacation to England.  Her cousin has Royal links into the Royal Enclosures at Ascot, Wimbledon and Henley.   The 2008 Henley Royal Regatta saw Canadian crews win multiple trophies; this year there were hardly any entered – sorry Kate.  But if anyone can make it over next year I want to race the 2009 Henley Royal Regatta in the build-up to London 2012.

While Kate was there she stumbled upon a gift shop and found this coffee mug for me.  This morning I used it for the first time – I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed the coffee.

Thanks Kate.
