Not often I get caught up in things like this but with the eartquake the other night it really makes you think...

With all the news on TV lately about the hurricanes that America is
experiencing, the typhoons in China, flooding in Switzerland and recent mud slides in South America, we shouldn't forget that the UK has its share
of devastating natural disasters too.

Attached is a photo illustrating the damage caused to my home from the eartquake that occured a couple of day ago.

It really makes you cherish what you have, and reminds us not to take
things for granted.

Do take care of yourself and be safe !!

And where the hell are Bono, Bob Geldoff, Angelina Jolie and their like at a time like this, eh? Swanning around Africa no doubt - they should be ashamed!
