Re: Olympics 2012
I thoroughly enjoyed the Olympics. I came back from the Dolomites where I'd been incommunicado for a couple of weeks (there was a lot of fencing on the campsite TV for some reason). Imagine my surprsie to find Britain was actually winning everything. The closing ceremony was a wonderful tearjerking nostalgia trip for this (newly) sexuagenarian. Ray Davies singing my favourite song and the pomp of Brian May's guitar (almost equalled by Muse). What a thrill to hear Roger Daltrey singing as well as ever the Tommy songs that could've been composed for the occasion. And how pleased the Saudis will be to have found a solution to their female kit problems. Jessie J was completely covered on both the occasions she sang. Simply following her example will mean Saudi women no longer have to run wearing a deep sea diver's suit!
