I normally keep this blog firmly focused on EvE but this past weeks events have not made that so easy.
I have 2 very close and dear friends who are living in Japan as part of the JET program. So every news story of earthquakes, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown threats hit a little harder home.
So far they are only suffering the same shock at the tragic events and sadness we are and remain safe and glad to be alive.
I also had the pleasure to attend a taiko drumming performance by Kodo over the weekend. It was that much more powerful to see Japanese drummers giving there all knowing how much devastation had taken place in Japan.
If any of you can spare $10 please donate it to a Japanese aid fund. The red cross has one going via text. Simply text REDCROSS to 90999 to Give $10. Buy one less round of coffee/beer this week and help the hundreds of thousands of misplaced Japanese eat and stay warm.
