    Olympics - the flame is lit today

    The Olympic flame is being lit today in Greece - see this article on the BBC website. It's then taken around Greece for a week before being flown to the UK to start it's 70day tour of our country ahead of the start of the Olympics on 27th July.

    Not a surprise but still so sad. Three of the Bee Gees gone. The oldest son, Barry, is still alive.

    Don't know if this is news, I guess it is. But tomorrow evening some American dude is going to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope and the tv is covering it. Hasn't been done for 100 years. They're expecting a gazillion people to come to NF. I'm staying WELL AWAY.

    And apparently he's already lost, I think it was 3, members of his family who made the same attempt!

    I don't know if it was 3 but he did lose his great-grandfather to a tightrope walk accident but it wasn't over the Falls.

    In 1978, at age 73, Wallenda attempted a walk between the two towers of the ten-story Condado Plaza Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on a wire stretched 37 metres (121 ft) above the pavement, but fell to his death when winds exceeded 48 kilometres per hour (30 miles per hour). The Wallenda family attributes the tragedy to "several misconnected guide ropes along the wire" and not the windy conditions.
