Olympics 2012

Standard

As the Olympics are just down the road from where I live, I am quite excited, even though I am not really into sports. Still our area has seen a regeneration and it is a nicer place to live.

From the new Westfields Shopping centre you can have a beautiful view to the stadium and the whole Olympic area.

The Olympic Flame is all over Britain and also in my area!

…and I have just seen it……wow it was great, fantastic atmosphere, everybody was happy, smiley, laughing and talkative. Coca Cola bottles, water bottles were given out free, so were flags and frisbees for the children. Music was played and  the police were happy  and cheerful. That is how the community should always be.  All in all a great experience!

Riah Biscette , a local 15 year old carried it through our streets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now the appropriate music for the Olympics from Immediate music:

An epic and inspiring track from Immediate‘s surprise release album “Epic Olympic Dreams”, available from iTunes and Amazon. “Salvation For A Proud Nation” is also on Immediate’s “Trailerhead: Saga” album.
You’ve heard this track in many trailers – The Aviator, The Guardian, Borat, Flyboys. The track was also featured as part of NBCs Opening for the 2004 Athens Olympics, where it garnered an Emmy Award nomination for composers Yoav Goren and Jeffrey Fayman.

E.S Posthumus Update

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a huge fan of E.S. Posthumus here an update.

The “guru” on their facebook page told us that the E.S.Posthumus website has been updated.
There is a discography and a “sports” tab.

In addition to releasing 3 albums, ES Posthumus wrote numerous compositions for sports programs including the NFL on CBS, Super Bowl XLIV, MLB Tonight, The Masters, The PGA Championship and The US Open. 6 tracks are there, you can listen to straight away, and you can purchase/download them also through the site directly.

They are fantastic, I can’t stop listening to it.
Here a taster of “Burlingame”

 

 

and the “Thrill of Victory”

 

 

Enjoy the tracks and have a look at their website!

Give Thanks

Standard

Give Thanks

What if you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?

We have so many choices in life, in shops,  in the internet and we keep wanting more and more.  Happy with what we have, no we need to have more. It is time to think of those things which really matter and are not available in shops. …..and don’t take so much for granted.

Count your blessings, give thanks  with a grateful heart every morning and evening!

When I wake up I am thankful that I am alive for another new day. I give thanks that I have enough food, that I have a good job, great friends, that I can experience love and friendship. I give thanks that I can give love, and kindness, that I am healthy, and that I can enjoy sunshine and rain, and the beauty of nature! There is lots more to be thankful for, what is on your list?
