So glad you are OK Nurgis, who is the art going. What I will do Nurgis is merge the two threads together to make one.
To my critics
When I'm in a sober mood, I worry, work and think,
When I'm in a drunken mood, I gamble, play and drink,
But when my moods are over and my time has come to pass,
I hope I'm buried upside down, so the world may kiss my ar*e

Thank you bjr and the art is coming along fine.
Update on the quakes:
There are still well over 25 quakes an hour in the effected area and there are news of new hotsprings merging
where there was non before. Do not know if this is good news or not. I will take a drive to are close to Reykjavik
to see if there are any changes there tomorrow.
Most people have decided to camp outside tonight as the earth is still moving under them. My friend who lives in the
area, she is save, has packed her most personal things in her van and has everything ready is she needs to leave in a
hurry. Even her van is facing the correct way so she can just drive off hopefully to savety if needed.
Here is a link for the latest chart for those who are interested.

This is no way over yet and we pray for those who have lost all.

There have been over 1000 aftershocks since the big one yeasterday.
My hubby and I will have a drive tomorrow to other parts of the effected region
and if there is any interesting photos oportunities I will use them and post them
on here. There is a lot of hot springs areas that might have change due to Mother earth's
rumble.
Every single house and every single summerhouse has been checked for people in need and
no where found. No the cleaning up has begun and the insurance people both private and from the government
are doing their work.
All houses are in sured for "Act of God" here in Iceland. That came a mandatory after the valcano eruption in
Vestman islands in 1973. We all pay certain amount to the government from the value of the house. However everyone must look after their own houshold goods and personal things, these are insured by private companies.

I have told many people that because of the disapearance of a little girl one year ago in Portugal, there is a virtual comunity with very kind real people who are thinking of us all, specialy the people have lost so much.

Thank you for your warm hearts.

Glad that all is well.
When I read the heading, I assumed Kery Katona had slipped on a frozen pea, whilst doing her shopping. :)
