Today is one of those very special days on the calendar. 08-08-08 is thought to be a very lucky day in many cultures and more than a few weddings have been planned for today.

This also marks the beginning of the Olympic Games. While there has been much controversy surrounding the host country of China, I am looking forward to the events themselves. The Olympic Games are filled with stories of inspiration and hope.

I'm off to watch the opening ceremonies.

Have a wonderful day.

Yeah I intend to watch them as well. My favorite summer olympic sports are gymnastics, platform diving and water polo.

Yep. It's the one time the television gets turned on.

I enjoy the gymnastics and all the swimming events. Along with the track and field.

It's fun to watch every four years, Anny. I've been watching since I was a kid.
