Just a quick overdue note to say how devastated I have been about the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake last week.
I was there a year ago for three months and grew to love the Kiwis ... such warm, jovial, fun-loving souls.
I am rattled! Earthquake on America, Mother Nature! Kiwis did nothing to deserve this!
