Hi Voo. Yes all is fine with me thank you. But what a mess in the city. It was just so swallow some of the after shocks are only 2km deep. On tv last night they said it was the worst earthquake internationaly because of it being so shallow. Hope you can see this site.

Hi, At least you're getting boat stuff done. Here alot of times it just so darn cold. Rain coming today and for the next 3 days I think. Weekend looking good, so far..will take boat across the cove to new place on sat. All workers my current marina were a buzz on hearing Twizzled not staying. Oh well. We had a nice sail with an omygeezus moment thrown in for good measure. You know sailing..always an adventure
