Just returned home from camping down in Denmark. The recent news dripped in on the radio and the enormity of it all is still sinking in.

Santos (and Pim!) is on to it and is helping out at the The South-East Asia Earthquake and Tsunami Blog. I’m sure you’ve worked out where to donate but Oxfam/CAA is one. Good chance to get 2005 off on a better start.

    Manas and I are heading to the Rosemount tonight if you don’t already have plans.

    Have a good one.

    Cheers but I’ve a pool, a suckling pig, half a dozen pineapples, and a few kilos of sweet potatoes to look after. TThe best to you both and refreshments soon in the NY.

    Made the mistake of showing a friend a Mondo Butchers catalogue and saying if you need any help with the food. Nah should be good, all looks under control.

    Hi Anthony,

    Welcome back! Hope you had a good time. Looking forward to more exciting reads in the New Year.

    The earthquake/tsunami was a very unfortunate way to close out 2004. The company I work for has done a good deed and donated money. They have also given me a 2-to-1 match on my contribution to the Red Cross.

    Best wishes to you too. Good for you and your company. The response from all quarters has been excellent and fills me with a lot of hope.

    yes of course. With that and the concert bombing I think you need some quiet time somewhere. Just looking at the post on Christmas and then Boxing Day. Hope all is OK with your loved ones. Very best wishes and thoughts. Take care.
