Olympic Rings on Tower Bridge

London 2012 Olympic Rings at Tower Bridge

In a months time the eyes of the world will be on London and rightly so, as the Mail Online says – the unveiling of the Olympic rings was revealed in “spectacular fashion” yesterday.  By night-time, a  light show with alternating beams of colours of an iridescent magnitude brought the rings to life –  So, let the games begin!

The London 2012 chairman Lord Coe and our dearest mayor Boris Johnson and other VIPs watched in amazement as the rings,  measuring – 25 metres wide and 11.5 metres tall – were suspended  into the perfect place on London’s infamous Tower Bridge  on the River Thames.

Weighing in at three tonnes and costing a staggering £259,817 to produce –  the installation of  the rings is estimated to have cost £53,000. London’s taxpayers are loving this! – Well that might be a slight exaggeration of sorts, nonetheless generally speaking, most British people appreciate the event – at whatever cost.

The full costs have been met by the £32 million Look and Celebration budget, that will also be used to fund free cultural events across London – such as free events, shows, entertainment and cultural pieces – organised to showcase  the best that the wonderful city of London has to offer the World.

The two-time  Olympic 1500m champion, and Chair, Lord Coe said yesterday: “The Olympic rings are an iconic symbol, inspiring athletes and uniting people around the world. To athletes they represent the culmination of thousands of hours of training and reaching the highest level in sport.

“With one month to go to the Olympic Games opening ceremony, these spectacular rings on one of London’s most famous landmarks will excite and inspire residents and visitors in the capital.'”

Our  ‘Bicycle Loving Mayor’, Boris commented on the glorious Tower Bridge adding, , “With just a month to go, we are making our final preparations and want to ensure each and every person in the capital gets a flavour of the celebrations and feels part of the Games.”
Bearing in mind that 99.9% of the country will be watching on TV as we ‘missed out’ on the ticketing process – Lets hope we are ALL made to feel apart of the  ‘Beautiful Game’.

I would say start with WordPress, just to ‘make a start’ then you are free to have a feel of how you would like to present your site as a .com for example, and you could also use WordPress as your Web Host later – when you wish to convert the blog into a full site. Either way you will benefit from exporsure on WordPress as blogs are becoming increasingly popular anyway. Hope that helps – Thank you for your lovely comment and much blessings to you I hope you find the perfect way for you x
