A Golden Day - Andrew's Musings
A Golden Day
This afternoon, I saw the golden treasure of the Staffordshire Hoard. The beauty and craftsmanship in some of the pieces is breathtaking. What made it even better was getting to spend the afternoon with my Dad.
He took the bus from Stafford, 17 miles away. I took the train from Manchester, 59 miles away. I still got there first

Whilst eating a tasty Chinese takeaway, the news informed me that team GB had won two more Gold medals in the Rowing Tonight I watched the athletics and saw Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farrah bring home the Golds!
And I've just found out we got another Gold in the Cycling.

Six Gold medals in one day. Three athletics Gold medals in one night. Third in the overall medal table.

Truly a Golden Day!

I'm glad you enjoyed the hoard, I saw the first public exhibition with sir_dave the quality of the workmanship is unbelievable, one can perhaps gain a clue why later peoples believed in fairy and dwarf jewelry, magic swords and the like, if they found objects like those hidden in the earth.
