    I know what you mean, saw the men's and women's cycling and the course looked lovely....I WANT to go there!

    In a way it was sort of like a virtual tour wasn't it?

    I tried to go look at Olympic merchandise online. According to Google, this is the URL for the official London 2012 Olympic merchandise shop:

    http://shop.london2012.com

    Yet, whenever I try to access that page, I'm automatically redirected to:

    http://www.teamusashop.com

    Now I realize this is because I'm in the US. Fair enough. But wouldn't it be possible that I might want to browse the items on offer for other countries also? I might not buy a Czech Republic Badminton jersey but I'd still like to look. You never know what commemorative items you might come across.

    The countryside they rode through really is what 99% of Britain is like

    You are most welcome to come and stay anytime

    That countryside typifies the south of england; out of town it's all like that. The hills aren't all that steep though - that one is speshall.

    Well it was stunning. There was what looked to be a cool pub on the Boxhill (sp?) section right next to the course...how cool is that? Then there was another cool building right next to the bridge coming back to London. It was on the left side just over the Thames I guess....I want to go there!! Could it be another cool pub?

    Thanks kids.

    But that's the point. I don't know.
    Since I can't get to the site, I can't browse. And since I can't browse, I can't decide which stuff to waste money on.

    It's such a quandary.

    Tom (... at least Chris could look. I can't even do that!)

    Is there such a thing as an un-cool one?
