Well, the Olympics in Vancouver are coming to a close. At present, America has 26 medals: 7 gold ,9 silver and 10 bronze. Have we done as well as we wanted to? Certainly Canada has not. They had planned to have the most medals, but unfortunately have gotten plowed over by Russia ,Norway ,Germany ,and the U.S. Being fifth is not what they had in mind.I can’t help but feel sad for them. Things don’t go their way do they? Vancouver and Whistler are experiencing 50 degree weather which is melting the snow. They can’t get their machines to work and they don’t have the medals they wanted. 🙁 We are doing all right compared to all their problems. Still, I think they have done pretty well for a city that is considerably less huge and rich then Beijing. London 2012!
