Sometimes we forget how lucky we are to live in the west

 

Er, aren't you about as far east as its possible to go without falling into yesterday (or off the edge, for those who believe that stuff)?

Andrew Hoy of Australia, competing in his 8th (!) Olympics, takes bronze.

So, Jess, are you scared and thinking that maybe you ain’t that young anymore? ;)

Can someone tell me what time I can watch the equestrian events (Jessica, etc) in little ol' England today - 3rd Aug? I'm not great with all these time differences. I know we're 8 hours behind Tokyo, but I can't find "our" time for these events.

Just watched that lass literally kicking off on the climbing wall. How does that work then? They've got ropes/elastic tied round them ... I take it nobody's hauling them up. :D

They'll have games of marbles next time round.
