Re: Olympic Games 2012

It took long enough

First of many hopefully!

My highlight of the games have been the womens football, they play really well and are entertaining to watch (still never swapped shirts at the end though )

Re: Olympic Games 2012

... I am especially delighted, as my eldest brother lives in New Zealand and emailed me this morning saying : "Good to see that Britain are doing the chivalrous thing and letting everyone else take the gold medals..." Ha. Pipped them at this one, New Zealand managed a meagre bronze . I gloated endlessly as I replied !

And a second Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins dominated the 44km ride to beat Germany's Tony Martin by 42 seconds, with Britain's Chris Froome taking the bronze.

Re: Olympic Games 2012

Has "Spooks" died of starvation?
She may be eating the cats food by now and tooth paste has very little nourishment.
Does she have goldfish, she may last the weekend on their flakes?

Flungy (Off to a Braai now with lots of grub)
