The Olympic torch continues its way through the United Kingdom

Beginning with Day 37, the Olympic torch continues its way through the United Kingdom. And again, there are tremendous pictures - it is a real education in another country!

Before the Olympics begin, Friday morning, July 27, 2012, Big Ben will chime 40 times at 8:12 British summer time. In fact, bells will ring throughout Britain at that time. (Big Ben has to be rung by hand.)
