Apparently there's some shindig down in London called the Olympics beginning shortly.
Will you be watching or avoiding?
I'll avoid! 16,200Km Avoid!
I'll try to ignore it but living right on top of it will mean I cant avoid it. Still, at least its never likely to ever come here again
It might be difficult to avoid as it will be plastered all over the news.
I suspect it'll be all over the media for the wrong reasons.
OK, there's security. But, I can't help but feel that this is Target #One for terrorists.
Makes me wonder if any terrorists have managed to get jobs with G4S.
Do I support the Brits or the Yanks i'm STUCK IN THE MIDDLE
The ABC has a show called the "Gruen Transfer". The new series called Gruen Sweat is about to start.
The BBC has about 24 free view channels each one with different events!
I knew that was an advantage in dumping the TV !
I've given up planning what to watch. Its too complicated. I just flick through the channels now.
I use the Sky channel guide for what is on between, say, 8 and 10 and then bookmark the programme that looks most interesting.
That's all very well, but have you actually found any ' interesting ' programs ?
All in this
- a short animated history
I'll probably end up watching some of it. The ladies football is on
I was sorely tempted to nip up to Hampden just to watch the USA ladies in action tonight .
A big hoo ha about the wrong flag at Hampden earlier.
Thought olympics started on friday ???
We certainly wouldn't get the gold for Olympics planning. It all seems a bit amateurish.
It's just our media making news out of every little thing. I expect
the Olympics have been put together just as efficiently as any
other country have done it ....... and also I doubt we would hear
of other countries niggles quite so much.
You've obviously never lived in America if you think our media is critical.
I see Romney has been criticising our preparations. What he obviously doesn't get is that is it alright for us to criticise but not for a foreign buffoon to do so...
I heard he was talking out of the back end of downing street.

Boris and Willard
Love those personal blogs , they are just one persons opinion. I could have a blog and comment that I think the English reaction to MItts comments was
a over reaction and they seem rather anal having their shortcomings pointed out by an American. Using the excuse of having the Olympics is such a busy
place as London is not Mitts fault, the Mayor apparently wanted it there, so live with it.
But then again, even though I have been to England (once) and having feverishly read Girons entertaining commentary on here for years, I still would not consider myself an expert on English life.
Most bloggers have their own personal axe to grind one way or another which makes their writings biased toward their own ideology.
Boris was only elected quite late into the process of the UK trying to be the hosts of the Games. Boris is actually considered a national embarrassment over here as he gaffs at least as much as MR has.
It all makes news and sells news papers, its a bit like watching to se what they do next

How much longer is this Olympiad ?
It's been extended by 7 days due to the length of the opening ceremony...
When are the surface to air missiles due to be launched ?
Never mind, perhaps the Israelis will shoot him down instead ?
2012 Olympics =£9 billion down the drain IMO, just when can least afford it. jmb
Are we absolutely sure that the entire £9 billion has been spent on the Olympics ?
I've heard unconfirmed reports that some of the money has been given to the bankers in order to fund their bonuses.
