Whatever our thoughts about the cost of the Olympics and all the other issues we harbour, Boris Johnson's rally call last night was brilliant. He put Mitt Romney back in his box and put a huge element of positiviy out there.
Maybe we should all be a bit more positive and enjoy it while it lasts. At least give it a go! yeh? yipee

Just seen Boris said about the Olympics and he done a nice speech too. As he says we had that moment.

Just watched the Benji Opening Ceremony Wow that was the best ive seen and Technologically amazing. London has a lot to follow, i think this is why they say its going to be different.

I wonder what the surprise is for the flame to be taken to stadium from the Tower Bridge? Another Secret think hummmm

Looking forward to watching the Olympics and just what surprises come along. Its great when world records are broken.
