If you have time, please visit this Blog that I made , it documents some of the happenings in Chile at thae moment:

You'll be able to appreciate the debastation that the earthquake and tsunami produced in Chile and the force of nature where the Hand of God can be seen!

It produce a resurgence of goodwill, unity and care between people and neighbours which still prevails because the recovery will take ages...

cristina, as always, thank you for the gardening calendar.

You did a fantastic job of compiling such dramatic images of the earthquake! Earthquakes are very scary but the tsunami I cannot fathom! How refreshing to see how your well built home made it through unscathed!

Thanks again,

Thanks Christine.
As far as I'm concern, any house I'd build in the future, will be using good timber, dear old noble wood, God willing. I know it is expensive, but mighty secure if you take all precaution with fire.....
