Survivor filmed there too one year....glad to hear it wasn't a disaster. (I'm guessing there was no tsunami...)

Survivor is the only reason I've ever heard of Vanuatu.

Oh my sweet Amanda, I'm so glad you're safe! I heard about this and immediately thought of you, but I had no internet and couldn't check in to see if you were okay. Thank you, Cox. :evil:

Not today :yawinkle:
I think she's referring to the one in Christchurch?? Or maybe the one in Murcia (South of Spain) just two days ago that destroyed half the village and killed 9.

Yes, I meant the one in the South of Spain. Just say there's an earthquake in the country of Spain, and I'll worry that Amanda was visiting a long lost friend where it happened - that is until I hear from you, my sweet. I did the same thing with Great H until she posted. Call me the worrisome Mom. :dunno:

There hasn't been much this year, thank goodness, although the floods of last Spring put us in the news a lot.

NewZealand Herald wrote:Also doing her bit for charity is Rachel Hunter, who is tipped to make a surprise appearance at the Telethon for Christchurch event on May 22 alongside some of our biggest global exports.

Anna Paquin, Kylie Bax, Helen Clark, Jonah Lomu, Jemaine Clement and Martin Henderson are rumoured to be beaming in on love crosses from around the globe, which will undoubtedly add much star-studded glamour to the televised event.

Anyone know anything about this? Televised! :yay: Great H! Can you grab it? :D


Edit to add: I found a facebook page for the event. https://www.facebook.com/ChristchurchTelethon

A quote from the page, "The broadcast would also be live streamed globally..." :D


Does anyone know if this has taken place or not? It's already May 23rd in NZ ..and here :zzz:

It must have. I missed it - can't get that channel alas. So no Jemaine recordings from me sorry :( (if it even happened - I saw promotions for famous kiwis Martin Henderson & Anna Paquin participating but nothing about Jem). There was a stunning lack of promotion for it all round actually.

I can't see anything indicating that Jemaine was able to participate, but it seemed to be a cool event and I think they considered it a success. I was busy and couldn't watch any of the live streaming.

Anna Paquin, Rachel Hunter and these two hunks among others were there. :D

Tons of pics here.

:shock: 5.9 magnitude earthquake strikes Virginia (Richmond), it was felt in Washington DC and all across the east coast.

Hope that all of our WTF friends are safe. :heart:

Has Jemaine been shaking those hips again?

They say it originated in VA but what do "they" know anyway. My money's on the J Dawg dancing in NYC.

I didn't feel it here, but 40 miles north in Providence they evacuated the State House because of all the kerfluffle. They had a lot of shaking there. If you've never felt one, it definitely is scary. Something like 20 or more states felt it - that in itself is freaky.
Mock, did you feel it?
Anybody else?
