    thanks blue-i know it won't be like Beging but I love London and will be happy with any effort. I wonder if we will see Jane and Chris in the crowd?

    I believe Chris already ran with the torch but that they have been involved with the games for a while...

    Kinda glad London won't look like Beijing's... it sounds like it's going to be fantastic.

    Toni, the director of the O ceremonies said we have "peaked with Bejing's OTT big wingding---it was wild...so I think they will go for something far less grand in size. He is the director of Slum Dog Millionaire-don't recall his name. I just saw that pic, most of it a few days ago. India makes me cry. It was amazing. I find it hard to watch, and was happy when the van found the kids only to plan exploitation. I never knew about the eye thing, did not get all the subtitles on the screen. I pray that is fiction and not currently allowed as India becomes a modern wealthy country. I recall it won best picture. It certainly was unique when so much Hollywood stuff is re-takes or copycat safe films. At least a happy ending for two.

    I don't recall India ever holding a summer Olympics but it might not be far off. I know lots who have gone-they say they were thrilled to go, but would not go back. The colors are intoxicicating in that movie.

    yes I saw his interview on the Today Show. I have my own opinions on the opening ceremonies from Bejing, which I won't go into here out of respect for others, it was an impressive feat... however I think I will enjoy London's more if rumors and hype turn out to be true...
