    I think this calls for a Manahattan clothes shopping trip. Seventh Avenue, here we come!

    I think a crisp polo shirt and capris are ALWAYS acceptable, no? Though we'll definitely have to have new clothes...can't have us traipsing around London in our "everydays"

    I believe there is definitely a shopping trip in order. Wonder if we can borrow Keith's credit card?

    I want to come, me too, me too, ( and I need new clothes!!) Ryan Miller is our goalie, our kids love him especially Ty. Patrick Kane coached a clinic 2 years ago that Tyler took. So proud of our "boys". I would love seriously to go to London during the Olympics . I imagine that you must reserve in the next 6 months.

    OK, you can come too.

    No, Becca, polo shirts and capris just won't do for London. We'll have to have proper summer clothing. Crisp linen and an umbrella. :D :D

    You should be proud of Miller, Sister Tinkfan! He's a hell of a net!!!!!

    They should be very proud!!! They held them and it went into overtime! I'm not necessarily a huge hockey fan (too violent to be honest) but that was a great (and classy) game.

    Closing ceremony is great! I loved the spoof of the arm that didn't raise at the Opening! LOL...

    Awesome closing so far (loved the tongue-in-cheek pantomime as well!)

    Miller was looking much prouder tonight (as he SHOULD). The stories behind some of these Olympians have been INCREDIBLE this year...

    I am an hour by train from London and about the same distance by road from Claire's place which is where the sailing regatta will be held.

    How many rooms should I make up.

    And purlease...you need to bring your dollars to shop at Harrods for suitable outfits. :D
