Twit or Tweet

All the turmoil that the world seems to be experiencing, yet the Olympics bring a few together in hope. Hope that a playing field or a swimming pool affords a better way to view each nation. Idyllic, yes, and let's leave it at that. Today is about the view: "The London Eye"

Alistair Cookie, our Olympic narrator, is on his fifth ride at this time. He's under four years old and can free! Following is his report.

"Alistair Cookie here -  'Twit or Tweet' - it might sound like a holiday for children. A special night for collecting treats - but NO! It's a giant Ferris wheel turned into a fan-based reader meter. Yes, well... Now for some spectacular shots from our cameraman. That's all... HEY, HOLD THAT RIDE!!!"

Olympic Games 27 July - 12 August  ~  LONDON


  1. I've been up in the London Eye and it provides a great view of our beautiful city.
    When Wordsworth wrote "Earth has not anything to show more fair:
    Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
    A sight so touching in its majesty" very early one morning in 1802 on Westminster Bridge he have could been talking about this view!

  2. Hi Dixie,
    These are wonderful pictures of London. And, it's the openeing ceremony tonight! I'll be looking forward to more reports from Alistair Cookie as the Olympics gets underway.
    Very Best Wishes,

  3. Thank you so much for a positive slant on the games. The pics are fantastic - especially the 17 year old girl on the Eye - not sure if I would have had the nerve to stand there.

    Looking forward to more of your 'inside' reports.

  4. Those rides in London look freaking awesome, Dixie. Great pictures. The Olympics, when and wherever they are held have always meant to me that we, as a species can be united and can share in something that's larger than our individual egos and trivial distractions.

    Great post, my friend.

  5. Aw, Bazza, sounds so romantic; thanks for that 'words-worth' of poetry!

  6. Thank you David! If we can get Alistair off the London Eye...! We never should have let him take a huge bag of cookies with him. he might just ride all day and night. :)

  7. Well Mike, thanks for the compliments. I'm sure I'd have to wear magnetic shoes. Of course I would be screaming, so the photos would look lousy! Hmm, maybe Alistair would do it?

  8. Hi Kelly, and thanks, I really love the Olympics. It's hard to make a choice between winter and summer games... oh well. Wouldn't you love to try that London Eye?? Bazza went on it and I think he should do a right good post... no pressure of course. And you friend Kelly, can give us insight on the niceties of Olympic manners...:))

    I'm so excited...

  9. Thanks, Dixie. Yep. I can think of no better choice to give a lesson on niceties on manners than good ol' Uncle Kelly. ;-)

    And yeah, Bazza should do that. Full pressure, of course. :)

    Ain't I a stinker? Tee hee. Happy Summer and Happy Olympics, Dixie!

  10. By the way, I forgot to mention that in your third picture that is Westminster Bridge in view!
