Worst day of my fricking 25 years to date


You should have done this, Nona! Hopefully it makes you smile!

It's awful about the Haiti earthquake. I think you're right, Sonja, the earth is out to get us.

I've lost count of the number of times I used to do this before I got central locking. Used to feel really silly (and blonde!). :o

And like I said to my BF, I'm not talking about the weather, but the actual earth, the continental shifts and volcanos, those are showing their power to destroy.

I saw something on msn news that they think 50,000 may have died, thats horrific! I feel for those that are locals. I know that three local missionary group and rescue/aid groups have already gone there and are working hard to help in search and rescue and medical and so forth. My prayers are with all of them all.

A note to say

Postby EC2 » Thu January 21st, 2010, 9:24 pm

My dad's in hospital after another stroke do, so if I'm not around much on the forum or sites, it's due to taking time out to visit. My mum doesn't drive and the hospital, although a good one as far as these things go, is the other side of the city.
I'll still try and drop by, but if there's a radio silence, it's due to domestic circs until we can get him sorted out and find out how much he's going to be affected.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
