    Weird.

    http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2012/0...mpic-ceremony/


    This makes me feel not so good about the Olympics. I do NOT want to see our flag "dipped".
    Another example of sloppy reporting. It was decided that they would not dip it, it was never really considered. What was being discussed was how to use grace and not offend the queen all while not dipping the flag. Fox was quickly corrected by Reuters and yet the story had legs by then.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Marketing and it works. It just isn't Volleyball, look at what little girls and women wear for tennis vs. men.
    Running, the short little skirts. Heck look even how women bare their legs in a dress or skirt to go to church or a wedding and men are covered in pants or a suit. Mens bathing suits at the beach are long, almost to the knee, what do women wear?

    At least your DD was there to help rescue them,
    She doesn't do a lot of guarding any more, she is more or less looks after the guards, when one goes in she runs to cover their zone or assists in medical interventions, checks in camps etc. She is a certified lifeguard trainer the last few years. DS manages the who mother load. Unfortunately while DD was covering for another lifeguard this even she had to go in a save a kid. Tad soggy when she got home. I learned this year to buy her Trek sandals that are waterproof. She has to have closed toe and a back to them so they can run.

    Yay, glad it went well. I watched and loved the opening. Sarah will row in a few short hours. She drew a very difficult heat. Oy.

    That sounds like a perfectly awesome b-day, and didn't it have a proposal as well?

    Nice.

    There was a huge discussion on NPR and another news source I listen to at work, and the rather quick outrage, may have wiped that fast like. It was a hot intenet topic most of the day-discussion boards, sports talk.

    Glad they didn't, and glad the ceremonies went without a hitch.

One couple had life sized cutouts of them selves made for guests to photo with, mardi Gras style masks to play with, and ice cream truck, all super low cost and every one loved them.


    Hit me up if you need ideas, between DD and I we remember nearly 100% of every wedding.

    DD and I watched it together. The theatrics were good, and I loved the orchestra. Did not understand the nurse thing, but the nightmares? Well done, London, well done.

    I LOVED the Queen "parachuting in" sequence. She is such a cheecky gal. Good on her for going along with that.

    Our news was showing some clips of Prince Charles doing weather reports-he was hysterical. Glad he found a sense of humor.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    Doing a final school uniform check today, need to order 2 skorts/ 1 skirt and another special day dress shirt.

    The NIV, Study bible with center column references and foot notes is purchased and her name is engraved in silver.

    Most of her supplies are already sorted into various notebooks and folders. ALL of that has to be finished today, and the house cleaned, uniforms ironed and underpinnings checked and into their place.

    She has 16 pairs of shoes to start school with, it is the one thing they can wear whatever color, and a LOT of style. So, she expresses with shoes and necklaces.
