There's a medalist's baton currently got a bid of £1,855 on it. Any guesses as to what the Jamaican teams world record winning baton will fetch?

Any advance on £100,000...?

We've still got dozens of big Olympic banners attached to lamp-posts surrounding Hampden Football Park on the southside of Glasgow...unfortunately they're just out of (my) reach.They would make great souvenirs ;o]

Looking at the marathon, there's going to be thousands of purple London 2012 barrier banners that'll make good beach wind breaks.

I reckon they should be in budget for me.

"I think for most people the description would ring pretty true."

Maybe in their lifetime, but in our history?

Up there with the two weeks of the Norman invasion, or the two weeks surrounding the time when we executed our sovereign, or even the two weeks around the Armada?

Let's keep a sense of perspective amid all the euphoria.

In twenty years time most people will not be able to name one British gold medallist, but I'll bet they'll be able to name which two monarchs managed a Diamond Jubilee.

I wouldn't put my money on that the way education gets dumbed down these days!
