Karen, I've just been looking at various online sites. Conflicting predictions about how/if it will affect Australia. One minute you hear, from reliable sources that the northern part of Australia will be affected, the next you hear from an equally reliable source that no, it wont affect us. Queensland, which has virtually been flooded for several weeks, is experiencing flooding rains once again and if the Tsunami was to reach Australia, Queensland would be one of the places worst affected. The entire Pacific rim is on high alert, from Russia to Oregon, to Hawaii to Chile. Yet another catastrophic event.

Last update had the tsunami moving across Hawai'i at this time and heading for the US mainland (California, Oregon, Washington ) They are expecting it to hit the US Pacific coast with a 1 to3 ft rise in the next hour.

First reports from Japan say 200 to 300 missing. with 66 confirmed deaths. And that this is one of the top 5 strongest earthquakes in the last 100 years.

I finally made it here...sorry I'm so late! Thanks everyone for the wishes, you are so sweet! I have been very busy at the office and gardening at home, so I didn't have so much time for posting. I only answered to the comments on my articles, that's where Karen said we 'talked'!
I must say I am also very concerned about the disaster in Japan and thought of you all, especially after the tsunami. Our friend Jon who lives in Japan has had damages on his house and they are so worried about what's been happening there. I've started a prayers thread for him on the other site. If you want to send him your prayers here is the link :

My birthday is every year after a celebration we have on March 9 when we're cooking some traditional cookies...took me all afternoon to bake! Then , another day of cooking for my BD. I was exausted, but it was nice. My colleagues from work celebrated me and we had a nice brunch at the office with the goodies I cooked for them.
Karen, I loved the pictures you posted on FB, so beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
Jean, congrats for the new tripod! Your pics are great!
Lily, love the picture with the burning sky!
Burn, what a great sunrise!

With good reason Karen, especially since those plant administrators seem to have ignored a number of safety inspections in the past. We can all only hope and pray that those in charge are able to get things back under control. The Japanese population does not need another disaster on their plate, nor does the rest of the world.

There are a number of DGers from New Zealand. These folks have been living with this since the first quake back in September. One mentioned that she had to get tranquilizers for her dog as he was frantic at every tremor.

Between Haiti, NZ and Japan there is a lot of fear and misery out there in the world right now, not to mention the Middle East. We can but hope and pray for strength and a safe outcome.

Love those colours, Moon. I wonder how it would affect how we feel if we had these glorious colours all day long - just for a day or two.

Kim, it they're predicting the heat to continue for several weeks. Yuck.

Karen, it's mostly a dry heat, but the humidity seems to be increasing. Whether this is actually related to the weather or just my general intolerance to heat as I get older is undecided. Right now, three weeks into autumn, the temperature is 23C (74F) at 8.30pm and the humidity is at 81%. How can a gal possibly have a good hair day in conditions like that?

Yuck, that humidity level is not good. I love 70's when it's dry. Even 80's and 90's in not bad when it's dry. But when it gets in the 100's, dry or humid, it's too hot. If it's humid if feels like your in a fishbowl. If it's dry it feels like an oven.

Margaret, hard to have a good hair day in such temp. Hope things cool down for you. That was a horribly hot Summer you had. I'm sure it put a damper, on what you were able to do and enjoy. I have a hard time with heat too. Our Summer are very humid here. I find it hard to breath when it reach the 27C +.

Karen about you not wanting to get up,but thinking about it, that sound like me. LOL Had to laugh at Margaret`s comment though, about nice thought.
Moon, that`s a bummer, getting ready for a sunrise, and no sun.:( But glad it`s a glorious day for you.
No nice sunset lately, so adding one from a while back.
