Beijing Olympics

I don't know about everyone else, but every four years my husband and I always get drawn in to the Olympic Games. It does not matter whether it is the winter or summer games, we enjoy watching athletes from around the world compete.

This year we are getting even more information and access to the programming than ever before. In addition to television programming, there is a wealth of information and video clips at NBC Olympics. We are also taking advantage of the expanded coverage by NBC with what is described as
"an Internet-delivered catch-up TV service powered by TVTonic on Windows Media Center on PCs running Windows Vista Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate!"
See Brandon LeBlanc's instructions in Watch NBC’s coverage of the Beijing Olympics in Windows Media Center.

I have now added Donovan West's latest creation, the Beijing 2008 Olympics Medal Count Gadget to the Windows Vista sidebar. The gadget updates every 15 minutes and lists the top five countries. Click on the country name or flag for detailed information provided at

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
