    Let’s hope our forum friends from New Zealand and their families are safe and well.

    Having lived in earthquake country all my life (California, U.S.A.), I can empathize with the people of New Zealand. Sorry to hear of casualties in N.Z. Hope the people get the help they need and recover quickly.

    New Zealand is a strong country, they take care of each other over there. One thing I am sure of is that they will get through this with ease & come back even stronger.

    Cheers guys.

    It's okay in my city. (I'm up in the top half of the North Island.)

    We are not in a quake prone zone here but we were definitely worried about the tsunami warnings.

    I recall only a couple of other Kiwis on the forum here. I usually notice when one turns up. I have not seen them here for months.

    Hi Gianni.
    I must say it warmed my heart to see the messages of concern from members here.

    I worry about you too: seriously, every time I see your name I wonder how you're doing.
    I have not even seen much news from Greece recently.

    But still - I wonder how people in Greece are managing. According to the usual news it's impossible to have a reliable job or keep a small business going.
    Also, according to the usual news outlets, riots - always riots.
    I know we can't trust the 'usual news outlets' to have any perspective.

    Hey Tubes. I’m glad you’re okay, mate. I live in an earthquake prone country myself and know all about dancing with no music playing. ;)

    I really appreciate your asking me about Greece, but I’m so sad and angry with everything that is happening here at the moment that I can’t even bring myself to talk about it. I’ve actually just logged on in an attempt to get my mind off it all.
