Sunday 6 April

It is winter all over again. A heavy snow shower just left us with 2 inches of snow on the ground. A northerly gale is lashing the coasts of the island, although the wind is less here in Stornoway, which is sheltered.

The relay of the Olympic torch through London has been marred by incidents, such as the man who nearly seized the torch. The protests are related to China's very poor human rights record - China hosts the Olympics later this year. I am increasingly going off the Olympics, as they are continually hijacked for political ends.

  1. Yes, winter has returned here as well Guido. I do not think China should ever have been given the Olympics.

    As i type its snowing here. Its not sticking so theres a blessing. I see by your other entry about the body parts in the suitcase. How sick can a person be to do something like that to another human. Lets just hope they catch who ever did this murder. The poor girls family must be distraught.
    Love and hugs

  4. I don't think we've seen the last of incidents regarding the Olympics.  I just feel bad for those who have trained for years and look forward to performing for their countries. They are the ones that will pay the price for the Olympic officials allowing China to hold the events.  That never should have happened.  Linda in WA

  5. I don't think they should be held in China. I wonder how many people will NOT go because of where they are being held. Such a shame.
