Women's Soccer, U.S.A. Rules!

United States of America's women's soccer team have retained their undisputed crown as world champions by taking the Olympic gold medal at London 2012.

The US's women soccer team have dominated the world of women's football for quite a while now. There is no doubt that these girls could play, and the way they played showed a desire and love for the game of soccer. I congratulate them.

Overall, London 2012 has shown the world that women's soccer can be just as entertaining as the men's game. As women take part in more and more competition, there has been a tremendous improvement in their skill, bringing their game to a very high level.

In today's final against Japan, the US did not have it all their own way. Japan made the United States work hard for their 2-1 victory. As a matter of fact the story could have been very different indeed but for some brilliant saves from the US goalkeeper Hope Solo, and a couple of possible penalties that the officials missed, it could have been Japan that was celebrating a gold medal win.

One of the reason for US women's domination of soccer is down to the enthusiasm these girls display and the positive attitude that makes them to keep going forward and attacking their opponents until the final whistle.

Japan's women played very well and the silver medal they won could just easily have been gold as I said earlier. Both teams in my opinion are worthy ambassadors for women's football and I know there will be even better matches in future. Just watch.

As for me, I am glad that the game of soccer is progressive and enlightened enough to be at the forefront of encouraging women to play and excel at soccer. It is a sign to all that despite all the problems in the world today, we at least get some things right.

To all lovers of soccer,the men, the women and the kids out there, today has been a great day for the sport. I love you all.

So far so good!

The Olympic games here in London has kept me so transfixed, I have left quite a few chores undone. I say a few but it's actually a lot of stuff I need to catch up with doing.

I am supposed to be re-organising stuff in the house and on my sites, so I have had builders, carpenters and painters in and out of my premises, it feels like Victoria station sometimes in my crib. And while these guys get on with their work, I can't actually do any creative work so I'm glued to the telly watching the magnificent games.

The media and other outlets out there can describe the events and happenings of London 2012 better than I can. But so far it has been a great spectacle. I promise that my blog posts will be more frequent and consistent from next week even though the paralympics will be the next agenda and I will be having the whole floor of my premises re tiled, I will just have to suck it up.

You see, I have some very interesting sounds that needs producing, a gospel album currently in production, web sites to plan and launch, efforts at monetising the existing sites (we all have to eat you know), attend to my creative writing projects one of which happens to be the contemporaneous stories told on my blogs (currently featured is the Flaming Flamingoes which will reach it's conclusion shortly) and a lot more stuff I cannot divulge yet. All these with a staff of three, Me, Myself and I. Nobody else! Help!

YouTube account opened but I'm still salivating helplessly trying to get my teeth into that too. All of these as well as find time to write (and sometimes re-write) songs and tunes, arrange, record, mix (sometimes re-mix) on equipment that costs less than five hundred pounds in total is a feat to be witnessed to be believed, especially when it is just I and I.

I love to read but I can't afford that luxury now and it feels like I'm going through some jones or withdrawal symptoms or something that I feel the need to contact  to alleviate this jones. I usually find great titles here. Of course there is a lot more outlets out there as more and more people are getting into this habit. I have some catching up to do to get well.

Still, don't feel sorry for me, it's all self inflicted and when the machinery works, boy does it satisfy and make everything so worthwhile and rewarding for everyone. If I touch just one individual with my music and creative work, then it has been worthwhile. I just hope that my friends within this forum will be the first to patronise my music when they are eventually released for sale. It would make me so happy to know that the various circles within which I am entangled have my back. 

I will close for now because I need to go practice. Oh didn't I say? Yes I have to play all the instruments in my recordings personally as well. Well as the saying goes, "Happy Days".

Stay cool,
