This... and that
I don't know if you watched the Olympic opening ceremonies. I missed most of it and sadly, missed slam poet Shane Koyczan recite his piece "We are more". For those who might like it, here it is (not the Olympic version, but same poem).
As for the weather, we take the good with the bad... I'm not missing the usual massive amounts of snow here.
So far as the warm winter out here is concerned I'm just wondering if it will be the last one we experience and happy to make the most of it. Yes, I'll take a double dose of daffodils in early February.
hopefully, there is still time to get some 'seasonal weather' before summer comes.
i've been watching the olympics late at night before i go to sleep. i just watch whatever event is on, and i cheer *all* of the athletes.
Really captured the flavor of the Pacific NW.
REally nice, and an honorable tribute, moment of silence for the luge rider who died.
You could hear a pin drop in that large, packed stadium, as thoughts went to his memory, family & team.
The weather has been a bummer for the outdoor runs, crummy snow, rutty, difficult & I just watched woman skiers, one after another wiping out on the choppy snow.
At least no one was hurt.
Anyway.... overall it has been a wonderful international get together & Canada has been a fine host. Eh?
But pity poor alpine skiers whose habitat is slowly to reduce just as Greenland will surely become green not white.
was jamming while the olympic opening ceremonies were on in the next room, with the Irish band, for a gig the next day. Pond hockey tourney. how's that for canajun, eh? will post pix after i get them downloaded. the ceremonies were gorgeous, but, i confess, i couldn't help wondering how many homes that money could have built. i admit it. i'm a Habitat for Humanity fanatic.
