The Olympic Torch and other stuff


The Olympic torch went through Welshpool today on its journey round the country, so the school all went down to see it, well all the schools did. I thought it is worth seeing in the flesh as I have to make a cardboard one for the Olympic sculpture with poetry flickering out of the top. It was all rather noisy and seemed like a rather large entourage but then there is the backup flame and then there is a back up to the backup and of course the media and the Olympic flames minders. Napoleon Beelzebub is a bit miffed as it happens because he says if they are going to mess with fire then they should ask him. He is of course quite right and there is not much Mr Beelzebub does not know about fire.

Not long after it passed through town if rained for a while so maybe he was just sort of warning then that one false move and he will bring rain to the Olympics for a couple of weeks, rather than fire and brimstone. So the mention of rain makes it clear that here at least is was a little bit cooler today (phew), although only a little bit. I have not been back on the roof again yet because I have had other things to do although the dog says it is because I am a snivelling coward, as I have pointed out if is easy for him to say that (obviously not very easy for other dogs) but he has got four legs and huge claws and climbing equipment.

The farm next door has now cut all the grass for silage, and as far as I can tell bearing in mind I know nothing about farms it is probably a bumper crop because of the weather, OK I am rambling a bit it is because I am doing stuff and time is limited. Apparently even with the ability to travel in time you do not gain more time so going backwards and forwards may seem like a way of gaining some time but mathematically that is incorrect. I will not expand on this right now because it involves constants and I get enough complaints about going on constantly.

I must go and consider Olympic torches now and how to make poetically correct fire HAH HAH HAH AH HAH HAH HAH HAHH hahah ahahahahahhahaha hahahah.

Ooooo Politics I have not said a lot lately but I am taking notes and have a list of politicians all lined up for a future of Hell and damnation sometime just after they have all been drenched in rain…………. So you are being watched, eternity is a long time in hell……

  1. Good luck with p c fire. As fire goes, you have to have some creative olympic culture going.

    1. Thanks for the award strangely I have been awarded this twice now in just a couple of hours how odd. I may have to bend the rules a bit because I sort of glaze over and think pyramid awards.

      I am not against pyramids getting awards but my humble little blog is not really award winning.

  3. Ohhhh exciting stuff seeing the torch passed on! I wonder if it actually is the same torch they pass thought the country, or if they have a few replicas if they lose one or get delayed or something? hmmmmm

    1. I think there are lots of torches, I believe they have already started turning up on ebay, Such it the way of modern man. I was more interested by the shear number of other support vehicles required by a man/woman/duck with a torch.

  4. "...the dog says it is because I am a snivelling coward" -- you should stay that way, Rob! Our 70-year-old (!) neighbor just fell off his 2nd story roof last week after attempting to repair it. He broke several bones but I'm amazed it wasn't worse. So I give you the same instructions I give my husband. Keep your feet on the ground where they belong!

    Very cool about the Olympic torch! :D

    1. I know two people who have fallen off roofs and in both cases they were very badly hurt, so my trips to the roof are done with great caution and trepidation. I will not be tap dancing along the ridge tiles while juggling chain saws, even for the dogs video
