You know what I always think about when it comes to shark attacks? How much that saltwater would make the wounds sting...

Take your Polaroid glasses. It will look like a little white light at the bottom of the shroom. Not that I know about such things.

that made me laugh. I feel the same. Lots of things to see here that I haven't seen. I can turn on the flat screen and in half a day visit four or five countries. If they build a bridge or tunnel to Scotland I might go. I won't be in a plane again. In my day we just had hijackers.

Does any of this coincide with your plane touching down?

PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!

Well, maybe it happened anyway.

But they can't do that to Americans, we'll sue!

Hope we don't have to.

Those pesky Kiwis are willing to destroy their entire island just to kill one Merkin.



I do hope everyone is ok.

If he's in Auckland he will be fine. The earthquake was further south, but quite bad. If he was flying to Wellington then there'd be something to worry about although we have friends and family there and most people are fine, but it was enough to split roads and cause massive land slides and several Tsunami waves although they were only 2 metres (6 feet), so not as bad as they could have been.

I've no idea, but the above map says he was flying to Auckland, so that's the best thing if it's true. If he traveled to either Wellington or Christchurch, they may have difficulty getting around on the eastern side of the country.

That was LJ guessing to approximate mileage and flying time.

Don't tell him about the game. It's best he not know.
