A trip down to the pool-waiting for Obama

It's cold and a bit wet today so we've been busy doing all those things around the garden that have been put off and off. The boyz love to trail along when work is being done outside although both of them managed to hide under the garden dining table when I got the leaf blower out.

It was difficult to find the Obama concert on television in Europe but we eventually tuned into the end on a satellite channel. Why is it that the US always manages to do things with such self confidence? You wouldn't have found a European version of Josh Groban singing a patriotic song like 'My country 'tis of thee' so assuredly. We'll be watching the inauguration tomorrow - most of the channels here will have live coverage from five thirty in the evening onwards. Has there ever been an event anywhere which has attracted so much global attention? The viewing figures will be stratospheric.
