This statue of Sir Winston Churchill appears to be keeping an eye on events at the Houses of
Parliament. (Whether he likes what he sees is another matter! whistle )

St James Park Newcastle ready for the Olympic football. The name of the stadium was changed to Sports Direct Arena after the stadium was chosen for the games so the new signs have had to be covered up hence the 2 white covered signs in the picture

I must get this in straight away, the first picture from the 2012 olympic games, the men's cycle race in Kingston. I've got a couple of closeups as well if we can show people for this occasion, especially as they have all been on TV as well.
Edited to add Bradley Wiggins is on the far right of the pack.

Thanks Christina, many people have posted them on Flickr and all with cameras with fast shutters, and as a result can now say the cyclist on the right is Bradley Wiggins (click and choose full size and you will see) along with Mark Cavendish and Ian Stannard as they stayed in a bunch for most of the race. It's the women's tomorrow and found the best way to keep the cyclists in focus (this was the only one I got) and see how I get on.

I saw lots of different signs on my recent trip to Massachusetts, Vermont and New York, but this one really made me giggle. It appears to be warning one to beware of pedestrians with hula hoops!

Bringing the ingredients to the boil at Schimpff's Confectionary in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The only thing they do differently now than 100 years ago is use a thermometer to check the temperature. Back then they used a finger with glasses of ice cold water very close by....The other photos of the candy making has the owner in and as we are not supposed to show people....this will have to do.

We've had a band of thunderstorms rolling over us for a lot of today, which has given us some great looking clouds.

A few today were clearer than this, but here is the leading pack in the women's race with Lizzie Armitstead leading who was overtaken by inches at the end to win silver.

Great variety on this page, and exciting to see a bit of the olympics here.
Tynemouth looks very pretty.

Here's a shot of the Viaduct "L'Isle Jourdain" (near Poitiers, France), where my crazy 15-year-old son did a (50m high) bungee jump last Saturday:

A friend of ours gave us this magnificent bunch of pink lilies. The aroma as you enter the room is amazing. If someone with more botanical knowledge than me (i.e. any botanical knowledge whatsoever), can identify them, please do so :-) The diameter of each flower is around 6-8" (15-20 cm)
