I learnt how to make a rose out of duct tape. These roses are great decorations for pens :-)

The Medal Makers

Have you ever wondered how the Olympic medals are made? Well, these little guys are just getting some fresh chunks of gold, silver and bronze to make some new medals :-)

I must say that I'm quite proud of our Olympic athletes these days: Urška Žolnir won gold in judo, Iztok Čop and Luka Špik won bronze in rowing, Rajmond Debevec won bronze in shooting, Primož Kozmus won silver in hammer throwing. Slovenia is the most successfull of all countires when it comes to the number of medals per number of people: At the moment, we have 1 medal for every 500.000 Slovenians!

Another thing I would like to say is this: Well done, Oscar Pistorius! Good luck on the 4x400m Relay on Thursday!

I found this 4-leaf clover in front of the supermarket this morning and several good things have happened since! Let's hope the luck will last :-)

And since I've gone completely olympic these days, and since luck is always sweeter when it's shared, this one's for Oscar Pistorius, too! He made it to the semi-finals, so let's keep our fingers crossed tomorrow!
