Good to hear the inside scoop Janice. Having been involved with the Nuclear Industry (DH working on construction of power plants and Savannah River Project) we know how much care goes into the building and overseeing of our Nuclear Plants but something like a tsunami is probably above the scope of even the most stringent safety measures. Pretty darn scary but the press does it's best to create real panic I think.
Kumar good to hear from you. I agree "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was a good movie but not for the faint of heart. I pretty much can watch anything but I did find some of the scenes disturbing (not to say it wasn't well done) just a warning if you're bothered by violence it might not be your cup of tea. I know a lot of people devoted to the books maybe that's the place to start and see if you like the premise.
I think the housing market is pretty flaky all over. My kids in New Zealand still haven't sold the apartment they bought in New York just before the big down slide. I think the value is nearly back up on that ($700,000 for a very small 2 bedroom in Park Slope area of Brooklyn) but they are pretty content with being able to rent it at about $1000 a month over their mortgage for the time being. Personally being landlords at that distance would not be for me but they currently have had "friends" who are renting it for the last two years. I hope that they will put it on the market SOON!
Well it's time for my DGD to come over, we're going to work on some sewing. She is out for teacher conferences as she is in middle school but her sister a grade behind has school. Tonight we are going for a red tip tests for Karate. They both have brown belts and are working hard for the black belts later this year. They have been doing Karate since the younger one was 3 so 6 years now, they are pretty darn good.
Have a great Friday everyone!
