Old Friends of ours, going back 42 years, are on holiday in the Philippines.  No one has heard from them since last Monday so we were all desperately worried. They managed to get a call through to their daughter in law late this morning. They are OK and on a little island which didn't catch the brunt of it, but nevertheless gave them an awesome experience.  Apparently they say they aren't going further afield than Minehead from now on!

I am glad to hear your friends are Ok too Toots. Such a sad natural disaster. At least the the Vietnamese have had more warning and have had time to prepare or evacuate before the same storm reaches them.

Yes, they were the lucky ones. It breaks your heart to see all those people wading through floods, no shelter, no dry clothes no clean water. Such a beautiful group of islands and lovely people

Just seen the news coverage... So many lives lost... So sad.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
