    Already it’s hard to know where to sit and where to look! Help! My head is spinning!
    BTW, I thought no umbrellas were supposed to be brought to the stadium – did authorities supply those?

    It’s going to be interesting to view the seating charts for all these, shall we say “diverse” leaders.

    • 57 Dudette
      December 10, 2013 at 4:24 am

      Yeh, Brian Williams was just mentioning that. Some of who have intense disputes going on — like Japan & China. Delicate processing of making seating arrangements.

    I was enjoying my CBS stream and someone had the “bright” idea of going to do the weather.

    they weatherman could have called me first – I would have reported that the snow is coming down steadily (more than the National Weather Service predicted) and since I hate driving in it, I will just add to my reason for not showing up to work today

    this is the one time I am glad that my boss is a rightwinger and will not be checking on TOD anytime soon – otherwise I would b busted for being up all night and calling in “sic”

    Mandela family box very somber. Such a range of emotions represented in that stadium.

    Graca Michel (President Mandela’s wife) is being welcomed!

  33. December 10, 2013 at 4:33 am

    Graça Machel is such a beautiful woman.

  34. December 10, 2013 at 4:34 am

    Has anyone seen Cyril Ramaphosa, yet?

    Truly hope he will be South Africa’s next President!!

    Winnie Mandela and her family coming in now.

    • December 10, 2013 at 4:38 am

      You know, I barely recognize her. She looks so different that the image I always hold of them striding together on the day of his release.

  37. 80 mtmarilyn

        Wow, so many dignitaries in one place makes me a little nervous.

      • 91 Jewelz
        December 10, 2013 at 4:57 am

        Meta, please don’t love him. He is a dumb person and a terrible president.

        • December 10, 2013 at 4:59 am

          OK, if you say so. I’ve just witnessed him with PBO and they seem to get along well.

          • 93 Jewelz
            December 10, 2013 at 5:17 am

            Meta, I have roots in Nigeria, and still visits occasionally. He is hated in Nigeria by the majority of the people because he hasn’t done jack shit since he became president. He is as corrupt as his predecessors who spent their times in office expanding their wealth through Nigeria oil productions and never cared about the ordinary citizens of the country. The country is even worse off now than when he took office. And incompetent man who became president only because his predecessor died in office.

  41. 95 Dudette
    December 10, 2013 at 4:42 am

    Let’s start a rumor: GWB made PBO late cuz he was mad about being ignored the whole flight over.

    Oh yeh, also he wouldn’t come out of the batchroom, cuz Da Bears kicked the Cowboyz asses! LOL!

    Dude’s in red fez’s. Must be from Morocco.

  48. December 10, 2013 at 4:49 am

    Good morning – I could not resist peeking in, to be in the company of such greatness. I’m just in awe watching all the arrivals. This kind of gives me the chills, it seems so massive and majestic. Well, YOU know…

  49. December 10, 2013 at 4:51 am

    Can’t keep my eyes open any longer sweet people; gotta turn in and a get a few zzz’s in so I can function in a few hours to get to to work. Maybe I’ll take my laptop to bed and keep the stream up so I can at least hear this celebration in my dreams. :smile: It was nice spending a few hours with y’all. There isn’t any other place to be enjoy at least some of Madiba’s homegoing celebration, then TOD, eh? :smile:

    Good morning everyone. It’s almost 2am in CA, and I haven’t gone to sleep. Very exciting to see all of the dignitaries arrive to the stadium and honoring Nelson Mandela. I can’t wait to see the American delegation esp. President Obama.

    I am staying here with my dear TOD family. What a historic time to be witnessing such great history. And to know and see that our President, Barack Obama will be making it so as well. HZ

  59. December 10, 2013 at 5:03 am

    It is so fantastic that President Mandela’s dear friend Cyril Ramaphosa is presiding over the celebration.

    PBO will arrive soon; his motorcade is on the way towards the stadium.

  61. December 10, 2013 at 5:05 am
  62. December 10, 2013 at 5:05 am

    Representatives of BILLIONS of people are present – that is an achievement NO OTHER leader has ever accomplished, in the history of humanity.

    The first person to invent ‘wipers’ for glasses will be a hero in my book. Handkerchiefs in the laundry. Tissue box empty. Resorting to towels as we type. “I apologize for the rain.” “The rain means the gods are welcoming you.”

    Need a bigger towel.
