Congratulations London,

Just got done seeing the Olympic opening
games ceremony. Wonder if any cuties are
there. Wonderful Fireworks.

I think this was the best Olympics opening I've ever seen! Congratulations to London, Great Britain, all those involved. What a tremendous effort on everyone's part, from the builders of the stadium to the electricians, se-up people, all those behind the scenes who made those in front look so amazingly good! And the Queen is just spectacular, what a good sport she is, the thing with James Bond was fabulous. She is one fine Lady, I admire her so much. And Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean, or BlackAdder as I remember him) is just too too funny. Lighting the Olympic cauldron was spectacular, and Paul McCartney, well what can I say. Well done, London, Well done! Hugs, Marji

There were probably a few watching, but you mean in person! I think I remember someone saying they were going! That would be so exciting! The closest I got was the gynmastics - USA Olympics qualifying finals many years back.

Oh Yes just a great story and the announcer said we should have smellavision
because the smoke stacks actually had a sulfur smell. The lighting of the torch
was preety cool too.
