Hurricane Gustav and other stuff

Now I have some experience of Hurricanes having lived for 10 years in the Caribbean I know how destructive they can be. It is a shame then that the deaths in Cuba and Haiti (which no one in the UK seems to know how to pronounce) are only shown as evidence of the danger to America and not as the tragedy in its own right. I know there is little reason going off on one about the little people being forgotten in the news but it would have been nice to be able to know a little more about what Gustav did in the rest of the Caribbean. You never would think that a sizeable minority within the UK indeed Europe have ties to the Caribbean and may want to know but no lets hear about how the Americans are preparing. Anyway I am going to get information from the source and send out some e-mails to people still in Antigua to see if they were affected and how badly, then I will share it with you the few who check this blog occaisonally.

I need to find some more alternative news sites to get some information from though I do listen to a Jamaican radio station that also broadcasts online could not find any Antiguan ones that did.

CNN's coverage

Don't worry should be posting again soon.

[Please note the original post in rough draft form was done awhile ago now but I thought it was important that it made its way to the blog eventually. That is also why it has its own update]

I can't be sure but it must have been awhile since my last World of Warcraft post if I have in fact ever done one dedicated solely to WoW. I tried to do this yesterday but I was at work and couldn't transfer my thoughts to my e-mail to expand upon later. It was time for a post though as my 1 year WoW anniversary has come around. I have managed in my year of playing WoW to level a SP all the way to 70 to take part in a Kara raid and to find myself stuck on 374 tailoring for attempts on end =o(

This bank holiday (in the UK) I finally got back into doing some adventuring around Azeroth andn Outland. Highlights included farming thick leather for my 225 leatherworker and running 9 dailies to get more money to spend on netherweave.

Thats all for now folks keep adventuring

Regular service may be returning soon.

Internet problems and lack of paying bills in a timely manner has meant that the blog has been more than a bit sparse lately but fear not though I could not always post in a timely manner when the news became interesting enough or I spied an interesting conspiracy theory I took notes knowing that eventually when my net connection improved they would be appearing here.
Things such as the Russia – Georgia Situation
The possibility of the end of Free Internet
China, The Olympics and Protests
You know however that this blog is not just about world news I also talk about entertainment mainly in the form of US and Japanese shows. I also talk about books and at the moment the book most in my thoughts has been Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meier so there may be a review or at least a small editorial about it.So keep an eye out for things to come and please let me apologise for the lack of activity recently.
