We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

It was one of the most memorable Olympics I have watched. I watched all or portions almost every night. The opening and closing ceremonies were excellent! Well done Britain!
As far as the U.S. winning the most medals.......we have the best steroids. LOL, just kidding guys, I'm proud of our olympic kids and their sportmanship. All countries behaved well, no sore losers or boasting winners. The Games were meant to be friendly competition, not cutthroat......Tanya Harding.
We watched the games or portions every night as well. I kept thinking
how they're all just school kids - so young.........!
Also liked 'Insane' Bolt's winning performances - Very confident !

They brought some of that Belgium dark beer... Can't even find so i could post the name of it but i think it's called "Leffe" or something. I am sure my wife knows where she hid it... Still have on bottle left of it. The vodka is gone...... now Have to get my brakes done on my car today, but i think it will take me a while before i can drive...
