Thoughts for your safety Bill. All our colleagues in Tokyo reported they are ok. Not much damage to the office. Sendai is far worse unfortunately.

Just noticed this on the front page of nyt.com

"I was swimming my afternoon laps in the pool ... My fellow swimmers and I were sloshed around like rubber duckies in a bathtub. Incredible.
Tokyo Bill, Tokyo"

y'think?

Whoa - first time on here in ages, and Julie wins the keen eye award. That was me all right.

My family and I are fine, although life in Japan has been a bit "interesting" in the wake of the disaster. A lot of items were gone from the store shelves, and some still are not back in previous volume. (Yogurt is one of those, for some unknown reason.)

I am climbing as usual, and enjoying wonderful cost savings in headlamp batteries, owing to the fact that I now glow in the dark...

Thanks all for your thoughts.

Great news! Nice, even the glowing has a silver lining.
