It goes past the bottom of my road.
Really looking forward to this should be great.

There is going to be an 'evening celebration' including pop concert at a park near me.  I've already applied for (free) tickets for it, but won't find out if we're successful for a couple of months.

It looks as if the torch will go in a big loop around my town (Luton, Dunstable, Milton Keynes, Bletchley, Aylesbury, Whitchurch) -all those places are within very easy reach, so i am sure Dh and P will be able to go and see the torch go past.

I, however, have absolutely no interest in watching someone jogging around carrying a tin-foil stick - in fact, I think the whole Olympic thing is a great big farce and I am NOT INTERESTED. I think its an appalling waste of money, I don't think there will be any 'lasting benefit for the community' after the Games are over and i think trhe governing body is corrupt.

Oh Kis, I do hope you get to see your lady! Have you been in touch with her much?  She must be sooooo grateful to you for nominating her.

I kind of agree with BFG, but the very patriotic part of me will put all those feelings to one side in the hope of Team GB winning us some medals and the feeling of national pride it brings :D  (would love it if we had a Union Jack smiley..!)   Hypocrite and proud.

I will go see the torch, just to say I've seen it.  It's going along the prom here on 22nd JuneB)
