Back in 2008 I noted my own lengthy take on the Beijing - London Olympic handover - Things are not always as they seem - comparing it too some sort of Wizard of Oz parody whilst reflecting on the inclusion of Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, his connections to Aleister Crowley via Loch Ness/Boleskin House, and surmising that the handover-ritual was a reference to Zion: in Oz being an anagram. (That's not to mention Oz creator Frank Baum and his occult leanings)
Yesterday, as noted here, the Olympic torch crossed Loch Ness.
Yesterday saw unprecedented flooding in Wales - where the Olympic torch travelled last week.
Today we note of how the entire village of Pennan in Wales is being evacuated, apparently a reservoir dam is in imminent danger of collapse, the contents feared to rush en-masse into the river Dovey and cause severe damage to property etc. (BBC News). The dove is seen as symbolic of peace and love - although there is the Noah's Ark angle.
Pennan is also the location of Bron-Yr-Aur cottage, Welsh for Golden Hill. It was here that Robert Plant and Jimmy Page wrote their Led Zeppelin 3 material, as well as Stairway to Heaven.
