How lucky!

Today it is August 8, 2008. 8/8/08. It's a lucky day! And it's also the day that the Olympic games launch in Beijing!

On KQV there was a poll this morning asking how interested people were in the games. Fifty-five percent claimed they were not interested at all. I was surprised at that! I love the Olympics!

Sure, it can get boring at 3 am with only table tennis on to watch, but what about the swimming, gymnastics, track and field??? Even Jesse is geeked over the basketball games!

When I visited China more than 3 years ago, the nation was all aflutter over the 2008 games coming to their land. We passed the site of the now famous "bird nest" stadium and saw the scaffolding (bamboo scaffolding, of course) and cranes prepared to construct the various venues.

Now it's here! It's arrived! The Olympics! I am extremely excited!
