We always enjoy following the Olympic Games -- winter or summer. The 2012 Summer Olympics have a special meaning to me though. \n\nFirst, someone I worked with for many years is in the Opening Ceremony. She (Helen) has also been selected to take part in both the Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies. (The Legal Division had staff in many countries. Helen was the U.K. Manager of the Patent Staff and had visited the U.S. many times. A very charming lady.)\n\nSecond, one of the stars of the U.S. women's soccer team, Abby Wambach, is from my home town. It was very exciting to see her score in the match yesterday against France.\n\nAside from those two special reasons for following the games, we enjoy seeing the top athletes from around the world. \n\nAnyone else follow the Games?
