Sad old balloons - I like them.
William CW is William Carlos Williams...he wrote a famous poem about a red wheelbarrow. It's very short and very beautiful and it begins "so much depends..."

Poor little balloons. Hey, Germany still has one more match to play! Granted, it's not THE match, but still important.

kobico, you know what? I am glad it is over :-D. btw you are totally right with the things you said on your blog about the French "scandal".
