Thinking of New Zealand

and the lovely people from there. Kiwis make the world a better place, and I hope their recovery from this latest earthquake is swift.

I have a number of friends and acquaintances in NZ. Fortunately, most of them are on the North Island around Auckland where I built a call center for the Deaf in 2005. Some, however, including some distant relatives, lime in and near Christchurch on the South Island. I've not been able to reach any of those.

On another note, I've been told by my friends in Auckland that the US Navy offered the medical facilities abound a carrier group. They could move right into the harbor near Christchurch and provide helos and addition search and rescue equipment and personnel. The offer was refused because some of the ships were nuclear powered.
I can't verify that at the moment but I wouldn't be surprised if it's true.
