Maybe you didn't catch the opening ceremonies but we think we did a pretty good job.
Good luck to all!

Definitely proud to be Canadian, kind of sucked that they had the malfunction with the hydraulics but I think they did a great job overall.

Proud to be Canadain yes, very sad for the luger that died, what a horrible cloud over what's suppose to be a fun and happy time....quite heartbreaking. :(
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
~~~~~~~~My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)~~~~~~~~

And yes, it was so sad about the poor luge guy, how sad.

Anyone see Barbara Ann Scott carrying in the Olympic Flag? My older sister used to play with her when they were kids!! She's looking pretty well preserved for 70 yrs old!

Sad about the luger, but you couldn't bribe me onto one of those sleds!

My personal favourite is Biathlon.

Let's hope for enough snow to pull it all off, clean drug screens and no more accidents!

Good luck to all!
