As some of you know I have had a long and satisfying affair with Vanuatu. I have been visiting her since the 1980's.

The recent cyclone has wreaked much havoc across her.

During the mayhem contact was lost with many outlying islands. On one of the islands a couple of late teen Aussie women were volunteering as teachers. Nothing had been heard from them (or anyone else) on the island for over a week.

Late in the week the search helicopters finally got to the island and located the village and the women. Unfortunately the helicopter was unable to land, so with typical islander ingenuity the rescue crew wrote a message telling the women where the nearest safe landing point was - this was written on a coconut (it was never adequately explained just why the crew had the coconut) and dropped it to the girls.

The women were then flown, via a circuitous route back to Port Vila (the nations capital).

The women were asked by a journalist if they were looking forward seeing their families, to which one defiantly replied "I'll won't see them until July, I'm not going anywhere!"

I was so pleased to see her resolve to stay and muck in for the relief effort, rather than taking the easy option of coming home.

We need more of that kind of spirit.
Glad to hear they were OK. I admire their spirit. [smilie=gt-happyup.gif]

How was KC?
It was a lot of fun! Good to see my sister, I don't see enough of her. We found a lot of kid friendly stuff to do. These kids drive me crazy sometimes, but I love them to pieces, and I love getting to take them places and spoil them every once in awhile.

Getting ready to go out in a little while, we've got a babysitter so that my boyfriend and I can go out-- we're celebrating two years together. Not that long in the grand scheme of things, but worth celebrating nonetheless.
Date night is nice after a road trip like that. [smilie=coolup.gif]

Back from the craft beer fest, I had to drive so I limited my intake. The local bands they had playing in the House of Blues weren't very good. There were many hot women. I should probably have something to eat now.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

Evening, HOG. Too bad about the bands. Still better than another half foot of snow.

The good beer made up for the mediocre music.

My friend was so grateful for the out pouring of love.He and his wife had adopted their first child 10 years ago.The second adoption came through right before they found out they would have another child through pregnancy.At that time,they took in a teenage girl as a foster child.Her present foster parents had her for the money.She came to my friend with 2 changes of clothes,one outfit was a cheerleading outfit provided by the school.I donated to the girl's clothing fund when I found out he paid out of pocket to dress her.

This couple has a lot of love.
