Back with our program

It's nice to be supportive of the country where you live in, so it's cool others share videos of their country too...United States, Norway, Japan, France, Austria, Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, etc.

I like DACs, I'm listening to one right now...the top-of-the-line ESS Pro DAC.
...Gypsy music.

I like the Olympic Games too. I like what it represents, and this one's theme: Peace. To have young athletes from all over the world and competing with all their heart and smile, it is inspiring for the world all around. That spirit of togetherness...nothing can top it out, except for that Roadster in space.

The very first picture of this German/French pair who won Gold for their final routine inspired me to do some research. It is amazing!
Best is to read the short link I provided in the middle of the four photographs.

She's been around the block, so it's a happy ending story.

Pictures are one thing, what's behind the pictures are even more revealing.

There are many more articles about her and him. This is history in the making.
These people put their entire life in the passion and the art.
We as spectators are rewarded from their efforts and from their stories which inspired us in our hearts and in the good spirit of life.
