Olympic Torch Fever!

You'd have to have a heart of stone not to feel a little tiny bit of excitement about the Olympics coming to London now the Torch is winding its way through the country. 

We saw Torch Bearer Colin Edwards carry the torch in our local area on Sunday.  The atmosphere was fabulous.

Here's me with Colin - he's a leg amputee who is currently running the 630 mile South Devon Coast Path to raise money for limb charity Port-er.  

Actually, there are some great stories of disabled people who are carrying the torch and given that we are still very underepresented in the media generally I hope this is an opportunity for people to see us in a positive light, as people who are getting on with and enjoying life.
