Day Thirty-SIx - Spectacular

The Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games was spectacular! It is hard to fathom a mind that could create such a historical, melodramatic presentation depicting all that is great about Great Britain. Agrarian society, Industrial Revolution, healthcare, children's literature, British music...unbelievable!

Add the Parade of Nations, thousands of volunteer musicians and actors, Paul McCartney, Peace Doves on bicycles, and the Queen parachuting into the stadium with James Bond - well, I just don't have enough adjectives! Top it off with the lit Olympic Cauldron rising up out the the center of the field and enough fireworks to light the entire city of London, and I have to say, Mr. Danny Boyle, well done!!!
