Cyclone Gene

Just wanted to let everyone know I am safe and sound here in Fiji (yet again). We did get hit generally speaking by a small Class 1 cyclone last night and it seems to be affecting us today still with heavy winds and rain.

The only real loss was my beloved papaya tree in the backyard, which met my back door in the wee hours of the morning with a tremendously loud thud. But I've included pictures here for your perusal.

Hope everyone else, everywhere else is doing well. And I promise to write a real update soon.

From the local paper: Condoms slow village growth

Thats right.... Apparently in this article, we learn that condoms are slowing village growth and school attendance.

I just don't undertstand where this mentality comes from. I am flabbergasted.

I sometimes love technology - Kindle

I rarely lust over gadgets.. except when they would be of supreme use to me... this is one of those.

The Kindle

I wouldn't have to carry books anymore.... my back would rejoice. I could travel with just my camera, laptop and kindle and have most everything I need... oh and clothes of course. Sometimes I wish I was earning a salary, this would be one of those times. Sigh.
