Thanks for the thought Anthropal. Yes, I am fine. Angeles City, where I live, is well north of the typhoon zone but has suffered some very strong winds from the edges of a few really big ones over the years. I remember living on the 11th floor of the Copacabana Hotel in Baclaran in Manila during a close typhoon and we could feel the hotel building swaying beneath our feet in the wind. But that was around 1989. A few trees and palms were uprooted and lots of huts in suburban "squats" all over Manila were blown over or unroofed. But they are easily rebuilt with a little scavenging among the debris. Angeles was covered in many places with deep lahar after the Pinatubo eruption in 93 but it was never threatened seriously.

What are we going to do with NoG? It seems that the categories for contention are depleted beyond recovery.

Current affairs and to some extent science, seem to be the only continuing, self-renewing categories. I'm not sufficiently interested in US politics to seriously engage in debate there except as it affects global politics............particularly in East Asa and western Pacific which are of considerable interest to me. I don't have the erudition to debate scientific subjects in detail.

Whither the future?

I am pleased you are safe.

NoG goes quiet now and again and picks up again to where it gets quite hectic. I have seen it before, but I think some are finding the transition to the Yuku platform a little confronting.

I have to admit I've been checking less often than I should. I've taken over duties with a number of FB Groups, and one other forum on fossils which is taking up a lot of time. Have been writing as well - got two papers off to journals for review, and three of us are working on a major paper. So time has been limited.

Glad to hear you are well, Biggles.

Glad to see you posting again. I read here every day and it's been a long time since I read anything I felt like replying to. So I suggest you keep checking these boards every once in a while, because there's always a chance that NvsG will get going again.
