    Hope Our Friends in India are Okay

    Floods, landslides and building collapses caused by India's heaviest-ever recorded rainfall have killed nearly 800 people. Weather officials are predicting even more heavy rain. News reports are reporting major cities at a standstill and a great deal of loss.

    Vipin wrote that his place was hit with a major cyclone but that he is alright.

    Take care Vipin and let us know if we can help.

    Our prayers go out to Vipin and our other Indian brothers and sisters who have to deal with this terrible weather. May you come through unharmed and safe.

    Man, India's really been having a rough time with natural disasters. I hope this period passes with as little suffering as possible.

    Apparently they have had around 40" of rain in one day in Mumbai!! (formerly Bombay) That is unbelievable....think of it....a yard high over EVERY square yard. I do hope their luck changes.

    To put things in perspective, this makes an interesting read........

    When you read this you realise that the quality, of some aspects, of your life depends totally on the geographic location and timing of your birth.....now if only we could choose those....Oh yes, and it would help even more if you could choose your parents.....and furthermore which of the genes you took from them!

    Good luck
