Exploration

I'm all excited today because it's the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games.  Not that I'm particularly excited by opening ceremonies, but tomorrow we're off to London to watch the Wheelchair Basketball and Athletics, which is very very exciting.

But that's tomorrow, today we're explorers discovering new lands and bolding going where no man has gone before.
