We are working with a group there, in Christchurch too. We just heard from them though, they're OK, with a mess to clean up in their offices!

I have to say it's a real shock how many were killed. I saw the Canberra TV studio on the news, it had completely collapsed. It looked like t heir fire and rescue services were doing a fantastic.

Glad to hear Larry and Camilla are okay.

Ha ha bloody poms :-) Canberra is the capital of Austraila. The building you are talking about is the CTV or Canterbury TV. Apparently they think there will be between 60-120 bodies in there.

No worries :-). No matter were this kind of thing happens its bad but to be in a small town in a small country i think makes it worse. NZ just dosnt have this kind of thing happen.
