Going Like The Clappers!

So, not long until the Official Opening of the Olympic Games 2012.

For the most part I'm not that fussed about it...costs so much, security scaremongering, etc etc. But this morning I was fully swept up by The Big Bong. Now, I thought it was just a joke on the wonderful BBC programme Twenty Twelve. But, no, it was for real! At 12 minutes past 8 this morning we were asked to ring a bell, any bell, for 3 minutes. So I, of course, used one of my trusty cowbells! I may not be interested in the Olympics but I am a total sucker for the Winter Olympics - ice hockey, skiing, ice skating and the like. Love it!

Meanwhile, Mr B and his trusty camcorder wandered down to our village church and was invited to ring one of the church bells!

In fact, as I type this, this evening, I am a 'bell ringing widow' as Friday night is bell ringing night and I think he's hooked!
