Get you sheckels while they're still hot!

It's so symbolic, tied around your neck like that.

Doesn 't it make you feel better than everyone else?

Russians done it again!
SOUL'CHI or SO'CHIC
I think the first is better it sounds better & easy to pronounce!...? mmm...m!
Russian spirit is lifting up with The Spirit of almighty God is hovering over SOCHI and guarding His loving children from everywhere, visitors, athletes, tourists and everyone from everywhere, for sport & learning!
We must thank Russia for the enormous contribution to the world peace in recent years, by far Russians have done more than their fair share.

Russia & Sochi! Olympic venues, amazing designs, Olympic Flame! Unbelievable feature of splendour overlooking the City of Sochi, and many more gold medals stricken with tiny bits of meteorite embedded on them to be award...ddd.ed to the first athletes who win on 15th, to mark the anniversary day a meteorite hit Russia last year! Gigantic projects done & delivered completely before the deadline. A City of Fifty Billions Well Spent! Blessed be upon The City of S(OUL)CHI. Blessed be upon Russia and Russians for being persistent & tenacious defenders of world peace & mankind everywhere! As for me I see SOCHI and die.

Something significant to mark a moment of great change where, hopefully, human values will overcome the base greed of capitalism. One simple piece of ancient rock that will always outstrip the value of any gold on which it is placed. Winning one of these medals will be a unique and symbolic acheivment in the history of the Olympic Games.

Sorry to inform you that Russias economy is about to be taken to the cleaners by the Richman games [Olympics] in a much larger way than Vancouver was. Billions have and will be stolen by this finacial fraud disguised as a sporting event .
