    I hope they recover soonest and that the aftershocks effect will be minimal. They need our prayers.

    In the news, it said that the price of energy will drop slowly due to reduce use of it in Japan (Japan is the top three consumer of it - oil and gas).

    Thanks for the link and post, now I saw it, I didn't know about this until I open the HP this am and saw some posts.

      Hi pretty,  yes they do need our prayers.  They are more prepared than any other people but this is huge.

      The event certainly does change world dynamics in many ways we don't see yet.  Charlie and the teachers unions won't be at the top of the news heap.  Middle Eastern protesters have lost audience and concern.  Maybe things will quiet down?

        What will Charlie Sheen do now that his "tragic"  firing from CBS isn't news anymore?

          This may be his most devastating "withdrawal" ever.  Maybe he'll manage to get a grip.  Hope so.

    I am still in shock, and feeling such sorrow for the lives lost. I am in a Cali coastal town and we are getting the after effects of the tsunami now... The downtown areas have been evacuated but we are so thankful that we had so much warning. It is so tragic that the people of Japan have had to suffer so much. And to think, there's still more to come.

    Really puts life and "news" in perspective.
    Right now my most fervent prayer is that all this natural devestation will STOP.
