The Red Cross has launched an emergency appeal in response to the widespread flooding, caused by Sunday’s massive earthquake off the coast of Sumatra. More than 69,000 people are known to have died, thousands more are injured and a million have been displaced from their homes.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is at the forefront of the response to this disaster. A British Red Cross logistics team has flown to Sri Lanka, one of the countries most affected by the tidal waves. The logistics team is coordinating the arrival of all Red Cross relief goods being sent to Sri Lanka, ensuring they reach those who need them most.
Emergency supplies such as tarpaulins, blankets, cooking utensils and water purification tablets are still urgently needed.
Huh? 3145 visits in less than a month, and that’s not including robots or search spiders?
I used to get a lot of visits because of the nightclubbing pics I posted. But since I haven’t been posting those recently, I can only assume a lot of people are amused by the rambings of a morbidly obese old ex-commie.
Despite all these visitors, I still haven’t had even one naked lady send me her picture, au buff. You bastards.
Tonight’s top new song was ‘All That You Know’ by Waterloo. Although remiss in correctly titling their website, they more than make up for this heinous error with their finely-honed indie guitar pop. Very, very catchy!
The best old song was Supertramp’s ‘Logical Song,’ which sounded particularly sweet right after a Converge golden oldie.
