LONDON OLYMPICS 2012

Here's my thoughts on the 2012 Olympic logo controversy


This is the official logo and I think it is crap. What were they thinking? What a waste of money.
I heard that they paid £400,000 for the design.

Ha ha! Yes - money down the drain indeed! I can't beleive they wasted £400,000 on any design let alone a bad one. Maybe a picture of some old rope would also be rather fitting...?

I don't mind the expensive logo. I liked the commercials with the animation and colors following it. I don't know.

But the alternative, the one with the Union Jack (isn't that what you call it) is my favorite out of them all.

2nd Day of Summer w/the kids. Will I make it?

Glad I am not the only one that thinks it looks...uh...like crap. Thanks for visiting me. Love the underground version!

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
