Paying the bills

2008 Olympic Games are open! (And opened in style) 

Well, as of about ten minutes ago the Being Olympic Games officially opened.
The games have opened in an amazing spectacle!

I was fortunate to actually (and unexpectedly) be at home and able to watch the whole thing right through. From start to finish the opening ceremony was amazing and bodes well for a great games!

I twittered for the site and have posted a blog post over there also about the Judoka involved in carrying their nations flags into the stadium. 17 I think it was. Take a look over at for the details and try "following" for updates.

The highlights from the athletes coming in perspective was Marcon Bezzina carrying Malta's flag, I know Marcon and she is great so it was wonderful that she was the flag bearer. The BBC coverage here mentioned quite a bit about her living and training at University of Bath, which has got to be great publicity for the programme there!

Well, most of my blogging and efforts will be done over at for the next two weeks, stay tuned!
