    Ron, thanks for letting us know about Nelson. I've been really concerned about him.

    That donation is a great idea. I know when I posted about this on facebook, someone added a phone number for the Red Cross, but I think it was through the American Red Cross. Could you perhaps post some info for us for the Philippine National Red Cross? Is there a website?

    Thanks.

    UPDATE: I found the website. I'm sure Bruce won't mind me posting it here, but Bruce, if you do, just delete it please.

    llate in the night yesterday ( 28/09 here and early morning in Philipinas-29/09) I knew about willingwilling and Ngerald. They're ok. but just after that my web connection was broken and I could not post. I'm really glad our members are safe.
    I'd would like to know about today (tuesday)- weather conditions in Phillipines. and the updates from them

    all my prayers are to them and their families.

    Anne...It is difficult to post a web site here but if one Googles : Philippine National Red Cross...the link will come up on top of page.
    whooops didn't realize you already found it and posted it.

    My farm is 500 meters (1500 feet or so) above sea level, and a lot of nations would be submerged before they drown. Unless there is a landslide...or the Taal Volcano which can nicely viewed from the ridge 15 minutes away explodes, like a gigantic arse...(BD, you can edit if you wish).

    Last night I made a donation to the Philippine National Red Cross. They are responding full force to this disaster. Many are homeless. This is a way we can help support our Filipino friends

    In behalf of the Filipino people, allow me to thank all of you. Although I hardly represent the people here in general, because I don't smile a lot and because professionally I was trained to see what is wrong, I tell people what I think. Which is not politically correct.

    Thank you. Any reports about my demise have been greatly exaggerated. (I am kidding, of course). I am often in facebook, like walingwaling, the palefaced pinoy. I tell my workers that he ate a lot of gata (coconut milk) in Tacloban that is why he became whiter than almost all of us.
