The Olympic Torch - The Story Continues

Strike-a-light!! It’s in the air....and sometime tonight, the flame will have burnt it’s way to the UK, and will land at RNAS Culdrose, in Cornwall, safe in it’s little lantern, awaiting to embrace the best, and worse, of the British weather in the oncoming weeks.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is when it ignites the nation’s excitement as it sets off from Land’s End, to begin the trek around Britain, giving the general population of the UK a chance of saying “oooh, there’s that man/woman/elderly crony/child/illegal immigrant carrying the torch looking like a right prat/hunk/hot stuff” or words to that effect.

And yes folks, I shall be lingering in the crowds, at Dartmouth (on Sunday) to cop a view. I may even take my camera and try to capture that shining moment when, inbetween the police escorts; minders; TV cameras and general entourage, the lone runner, beaming as if there’s no tomorrow, chunters past.

The Plane that will carry the Flame
All this only to say to the next generation of life, “I was there”.

I still say that it will get blown out at least once, if not more, by the time it arrives at London.

And for those who are living in the UK, and who haven’t already done so, this link will take you to the official London2012 Olympic site where you will be able to find the nearest route of the Torch by entering your location.

Thought of the Day

Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called cargo
