    yeah Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    QUILTNMO, Thank you from one of your neighbours. We are so proud of our athletes & as a matter of fact, for all of the Olympic athletes, whether medal winners or not. They have all made such huge commitments for the sake of their respective sport & on behalf of their country. What fantastic Olympic games. Kudos to Russia !
    GO CANADA GO !!!!!!!!

    Yay!!!! Was on at 4:00 am here and now sorry I saw the score - will be replayed at 2pm out time! What a grand Olympics for the Canadians! The curling was fascinating and has made me a fan of the strategies, etc it takes to play!

    Off to make another cup of tea!!

    Canada winning was as good as the US winning might have been---I didn't watch much of the "rough" games, but I did watch most of the Olympics and loved it. Took our big screen away from DH for a couple of weeks.....loved both the opening and closing ceremonies.
    Make every day count for something!

    Both of your hockey teams played magnificently. Hats off to them. Way to go Neighbors! Edie
