Only 1 day left to the BHF bike ride and the donations are nearly £700. If you have not sponsored us yet, please take time out to do it today. Please!!!!

Yesterday it was the turn of Matt Cook to have the p(micky) taken out of him. Today it’s Danny Sargeant.

Danny is the dark horse of team, as no one really knows his potential when riding (his bike).

He certainly has an history, so if we have one concern, it’s whether he will actually get away from the start on Clapham Common on Saturday night when the clubs are just opening!

Of course the plus side is that Danny is used to arriving late home in the morning in Brighton!

He is certainly one of the younger members of the team with long flowing locks (oh how we all remember those days), and I’d hope that he has the staying power!

As we only have a day to go, tomorrow I will cover two of the four ringers in our team, who are Mike (madman) Bonsor and Thomas (Lengy) Lengthorn.

Yesterday’s landmark pub beneath the bridge on the south side of Cannon Street was the Anchor. The previous day was Southwark Cathedral, which I overlooked in my blog yesterday, so apologies for that.

Today’s landmark (oh I am glad we only have 6 more days of these).

Quite simply, what is the name of this building, as I only came across it for the first time a week or so back?

Today at work was another budget focused day. Although we did the reforecast a week or two ago, we still have some budget challenges and most of this has been about closing these out. Unfortunately I still think there will be some loose ends next week!

Apart from that, we had a core IS management team meeting, which we do weekly. The main subject of which was our Connect the World project. The core management team includes the CIO Lance Fisher and his direct reports, so it was an opportunity for everyone to get up to speed on the design phase.

Another meeting this PM was regarding Apple devices and our policy around them. As everyone in the industry knows, what a tricky subject this is with absolutely no defined answers! At the moment, we have a strategy, but like everyone else, this has issues!

There are now 64 days to the Olympics. Yesterday’s event that includes aces, chucks and cutees is beach volleyball (in our weather?).

Today’s event includes skeets, traps and has a discipline that includes a deer. Blimey, are we sure this is an Olympic event?

It’s Friday, my wife and son are meeting me from work, and we are off to the pub(s) to enjoy our summer. Enjoy your weekends.
