If the tetronic plates have decided to go tilt(which has happened in the past), then why should any part of the world be exempt?


Are we safe in blighty?

Who knows?

Perhaps Krakatoa was the start of it all??????

There have been the odd rumblings in the UK for the last twenty years - not all down to old mine workings either

Japan is on a subduction zone, the pacific plate is constantly moving under the Asian plate.
This is just normal behaviour for the planet.

Well nothing unusual is happening, so I have every reason to be confident.

The poles are due to flip.........Yellowstone's due to go..........there could be a huge asteroid on it's way............that's the way of the universe.

But I still feel for Japan.

I also feel for the Japanese people; however, there probably isn't a country in the world better prepared than they are for a catastrophy such as this.

In this modern day of rolling TV News & the Internet the UK Newspapers this morning with their images, have really brought home to me the impact of the devastation with front page & numerous inside pages, many being double page spreads.

A quick browse I think the biggest impact front pages are:
1) The Daily Telegraph
2) The Times

Will be interesting to see how the Sunday Newspapers react tomorrow ?

Sad Looks like the developing situation at the Nuclear Power Station could be quite serious.

Nuclear reactor has exploded. Also Japan is know to rise from ashes I hope they do that one more time.

I find it absolutely amazing how calm and orderly behaved Japanese are. They even queued for public phones after the event.

I thought that. I watched where a boat full of little children were being evacuated (aged from a few months to about 3/4 years old and not one of them was crying! (I'm sure our children would cry because they were being picked up by a stranger!)

I have been exchanging EMAILs with a customer from Japan, it is amazing and humbling how well they are coping with such a large disaster, when we would be raging against it. They have interesting times ahead, even the relatively unaffected areas are facing power and possibly water cuts over the next week and there is the threat of more earthquakes.

I hope these nuclear plants can be closed down without further issues.
