U. Unknown fact about me? I have always loved the Olympics and can remember watching as much as I could every time they were on TV. I love how patriotic Team USA made/makes me feel. The problems of the world seem to fade away during the time of the Olympics which also makes it such a magical time. As a preteen I secretly dreamt of competing in the Winter Olympics in slalom skiing (although I never was good enough or fast enough)!

Any surprises?? So how about you? Tag it's your turn --email me your responses--I'd love to learn about you too! Now back to watching the Olympics; only a couple more days!
