Here's a breath of fresh air: It's going to be a painful 12 months' wait for the Olympics. Well, it's less than 12 months, now, and it's already painful enough.... But wait, is that blogspot open again? That opened unproxified for me!
And on the subject of fresh air: It was still rather hazy, but generally unfogged, this morning, but the air is clearing up beautifully as the day goes on. No doubt that lovely, cool breeze is at least in part to blame... A pity that the rain forecast for this morning didn't materialise, though.
