    No sure why, Rebecca. This is just a list but am quite overwhelmed reading this. I can imagine the reality of the flames coming to Vancouver. I had always wanted to attend an Olympic since I was a boy. This is like a dream come true. I have a feeling this Olympic is going to move a lot of Canadian … me especially. Enjoyed your postings always.
