    Phuket is known for the topless sunbathers on their beautiful beaches.... it's a very popular tourist destination for those heading to Thailand.

    The island was hit hard. :(

    Sri Lanka is known for very rich mineral deposits... rare gemstones like rubies, sapphires and jade.

    There is a restaurant down the street called that. Lets just say I have been asked to leave the restaurant before. Apparently I was mispronouncing the name of it. :p

    But back to the topic at hand.... I take it there is going to be a delay on getting a New Pair of Nike's. The price may actually go up from ridiculous to ludicris.

    yup.... :(



    And I've been watching the news all morning....


    and one of the beaches that me and the wife chilled at was shown many times.... :(

    and whne you've been there...and seen what the people are like...and then you wonder if most of them made it thru it....it sinks in your heart... :(


    and that's the island that I was planning on retiring at...and open a dive shop....


    I would have opened a dive shop there about 8 years ago...but I couldn't get a visa to live there with out a degree...and that's why I went to college.....in the states....just so I can get a visa to move there, and to open a shop that caters to the Japanese divers....I hope the ecology recovers as well...god's speed on the recovery effort to help the people in that area. :(

    no, teh pressure has been relieved... we got more and more time every time a 'big' one hits.

    i was watching this morning... i can't believe how big it was. it was 100x stronger than our 7.9 that i experienced... that's rediculous for me to fathom.

    i wonder if there's anything we can do to help those people...
