You won't know what it ends up like until later on, hope all goes well.
Look at it like this.. if the end of 2012 brings disaster you can look back on this year in England with all that's going on and have some great memories for the hassle your all put through. I saw what looked like most of the world showing up...and in peace also. 204 countries I think they said....even Portland, put an sign up in Pioneer Square Ron...pointing to England with 9,246 miles...just in case your looking for the Olympics.
I bought an book today at the "Goodwill" here in town, that has been plasticized (shellaced) and made into an rainproofed item I sat out on the front patio porch...it says....
A bell isn't a bell, until you ring it....
A song isn't an song , until you sing it.
And the Love that's in you...Wasn't put there to stay.
Love isn't love, Till you give it away
