Japan is indeed sitting on the Ring Of Fire...
I would like to Thank everyone for all the comments, e-mail, twitter and phone call that were sent to my son and me today.
So far all my family, extended family and friends are safe for now.
I have been quite glued to the TV news reports.
The nuclear Power Plants at Fukushima are the big worry right now. So far as I understand about eleven reactors in Japan have been shut down.
I hope they can find a solution for this plant worked out soon.
For anyone who would like to donate Mary at "Resident Alien" has a link to the Red Cross.
I am also posting a link for a rescue group that David just e-mailed me about. I know nothing about this group but David has met, as he said... the nice English lady who runs this group.

Thank You all again for your wonderful wishes and concern for my Japanese Family.
