And Now, “Back to Normal”

The celebrations have ended, the final medal count is in, and the mass exodus has begun.  The sun has set on the Games of the XXX Olympiad, completing one more chapter in athletic history and leaving the world with a fresh batch of indelible memories.  While Her Majesty did not attend the Closing Ceremony, instead we got the Spice Girls, Eric Idle and a giant octopus.  Two amazing weeks have ceremoniously come and gone, and now amid post-Olympic pride and glory London can get “back to normal,” whatever this might mean.

Let The Games Begin!

The Games of the XXX Olympiad are here of course, kicked off with a “unique” and well-watched opening ceremony that seems to have left impressions one way or another.  As our favorite events unfold– men’s cycling already got going on day one– plenty of opening ceremony photos are just a click away.

Following The Jubilee…

Here’s to her impressive 60 years as monarch, though of course not a record for her position.  This will come roughly three and a half years from now, and I’d say it’s a safe bet she’ll make it.  Either way, at least for now Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II might finally get some rest upon the conclusion of four days of celebration for her diamond jubilee.  If not Her Majesty herself, the city of London may very well need the time to recoup.  After all, with jubilee celebrations now at an end, the London Olympics are quite soon to begin!
