2010 Winter Olympics
« on: December 19, 2009, 02:24 PM »
The 2010 Olympic Torch Relay will begin its 106-day Canadian journey on October 30, 2009, arriving in Vancouver for the opening ceremony on February 12, 2010. The route will be the longest domestic Torch Relay in Olympic history, stretching over 45,000 kilometres through Canada and passing through more than 1,000 communities.  Over 90 per cent of the Canadian population will be within an hour's drive of experiencing the 2010 Olympic Torch Relay.

Passes here today 10.45am.
A bit cold but no snow as yet(real snow)Ashton seems to have more.
I think we'll go but will have to get the skates on,8.30 and no breakies yet.

The Winter Olympics started on Friday outside the doctors on Glebe Street. People were skating, downhill ski-ing, ski jumping. All on the ramp up to the entrance. I did suggest to the receptionist that it might be a good idea to put some salt down before someone hurt themselves, don't know if they did though.
