A super Typhoon is headed toward the Philippians.

Winds of 195mph (potentially the worst to hit land) sounds really scary, and in Britain a week or so ago the media were going mad about winds of 80mph. Reading stories of pieces of iron sheets flying about like kites is incredible. Sadly three people have been killed already. Here's hoping it passes thru without too much destruction and no further loss of life.

Where I live Hurricane Camille hit in 1969 with almost the same amount winds. Of course a few years ago we had Hurricane Katrina, with less winds, more water, and bigger eye; therefore, more destruction. I always find it funny when national media is like "super storm or monster hurricane head it for the coast" and its like a category 1. I know up on the east coast their building aren't secure enough to handle hurricanes, so that is why they got beat up by the storm Sandy; however, again me growing up on the gulf coast I find it funny they call it "Superstorm Sandy" and it was a category 1. Category 1 is nothing to us, its like a really bad thunderstorm, which we get a lot during the summer. 

Anyways, I hope there is not too much loss of life or destruction in this typhoon. heart

Oh god that's terrible. I think the worst kind of disasters are the ones caused by Mother Nature because you can do nothing to stop them. My thoughts and prayers are with the many affected today.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

The Toronto Major Tom Ford is back in the news, this time apologising for "obscene comments he made on live TV while denying he had offered oral sex to a female staff member.". 

The whole saga would make for a farcical comedy as a movie or tv programme.

Jon Stewart's been having a field day over him.

Thank you everyone, I have never felt such concern from people, especially over the Internet. heartheartheartheartapple01apple01apple01heartheartheartheart

At a lost of words everyone. I don't know what to say. The typhoon that hit the country is the strongest one yet. I live on the highlands on a major island north of where most of the typhoon wreaked its wrath, my town is flood-proof and as far as I know if the water here even manages to reach ankle level, the rest of towns will have been already submerged. Rest assured I am safe, I would have liked to talk more about what the government here is 'doing' but it would ruin my day. blue-meanie

I've had a runny nose for the past few months now I wasn't able to be on-line that much, turns out I had a condition called Nasal Vestibulitis, a bacterial infection which can lead to an incurable disease called cavernous sinus thrombosis . I had to be taken to the hospital quickly and be treated with antibiotics directly into the veins. I will be having Nasal Endoscopy tomorrow, hopefully the results would be ok. That wasn't the problem.

The last forum post before this one was regarding Paul's concert. I had begun walking the papers needed for everything, a couple of problems arose, I wasn't allowed to buy the ticket until I got all papers set. The day arrived, I have finally got all the papers needed, hotel booked, and etc. I was already considered a 'fan' on Paul's website but I was too late, all the tickets were sold-out. There was only one option left, buy the VIP package. My parents have already agreed upon it and I thought I was actually going to go. Someone began squandering money; electronics gadgets and jewellery were pawned. That was why I wasn't able to go. I was really sad and couldn't be asked to go on-line.
