100 days from today we welcome the world

Innushuk is the symbol of the games and this one located at English Bay was one of the first signs of the Games coming to Vancouver.

Today marks the start of the 100 day countdown to the opening of the Olympic and Para -Olympic Games here in Vancouver - while there is a small but vocal minority that won't accept the fact that the games are going to occur the reality is that the City is started to show its support - many businesses are sprucing up their premises and creating jobs doing it - the City is finally getting around to finishing Granville St which should be a great people place when finished - the eyesore along Expo Blvd where Concord Pacific has been storing all it its unused cranes and building materials is being clean up to make way for there own Expo - they are selling space to companies who want to either entertain or promote their products.

Today the City officially turns the Olympic Village over to VANOC and the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will be here this weekend to tour the project.

The only drawback at the Olympic Village is that the nice new seawall through the area is closing for security reasons shortly and won't be back in use until after the Games.


Canucks continue to amaze me - another victory with a make shift lineup and another possible injury to a key player.

Heading out for a bike ride - the rain is scheduled to return in earnest tomorrow and be with us for a few days so I am going to take advantage of it.
