Hey Folks...this is Rob(holly's husband).  She asked me to put up a quick blog....I just talked to her, she was in the motorcade traveling from Whistler to Vancouver for the opening ceremonies. Get this.....the motorcade of buses full of US athletes had armed vehicles ahead of them, armed vehicles behind them, and even a helicopter above them...all the way to Vancouver!!  How's that for security!?

Here is a great link (in Dutch, nonetheless) to watch live streaming of the opening ceremonies (thanks for Frank in Boulder for locating this):

Just click on the link you're interested in (tonight: "Ceremonies: Opening Ceremony") and then start clicking on all the links until one of them works for your computer.  

Opening Ceremonies Today & Super-Dooper fans!!

This will be short, cause I'm running out the door to the opening ceremonies!  (an all day process....we leave the village at 1 PM and get back super late tonight)

Check out this photo sent to me from Mrs Gray's 3rd grade class at St. John Fisher School in Portland, Oregon!   These students took the time to make these great signs and send a picture!  So, why not post it on my blog as thank you?!?!   I'm fortunate to have ya'll cheering.  Thank you, you rock!   FYI, Mrs Gray is married to Rob's college friend, Alex.... thus the connection!  Apparently, Mrs. Gray's 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have a surprise package that Rob will deliver once he arrives here in Whistler on Monday!

Hugs to everyone!    Let the Games begin!
