That was fun

I'm not a great fan of sports, especially athletics, but the Olympic opening ceremony was fun.  It is also an amazing sight to see the parade of athletes from over 200 countries all looking so happy - a better image of the globe than the parade of commercial sponsors.   Not sure why we had a quick flash of David Niven in "A Matter of Life and Death", one of my favourite films, unless it was to remind us how the stadium looked like the court of heaven which was to decide if Niven lived or died.
