~ I have a short update about the weekend events and the current crisis on our Guam ministry blog.
~ Who is Robert? And why DO we follow his rules, anyway?
~ 21 major cities in the world are in danger because of rising seas -- not to mention a few thousand minor cities and islands out here in the Pacific.
~ One of the great things about Chuuk is that unlike Guam they have lots of birds. Here is a picture I took on Weno, Chuuk of a Cardinal Honeyeater -- or as they say in Chuukese a "Likeitepar." It wasn't easy getting him to pause long enough for the picture.
There were Cardinal Honeyeaters on Guam prior to the accidental introduction of the Brown Tree Snake.
~ Watching TV on the laptop for cheap
~ Did I mention that there are no television stations on Weno, Chuuk (the largest city in the Federated States of Micronesia with a population of about 15,000)? There was a station at one time but the owner apparently died and no one took over the operation. There is one government run radio station -- sort'a. No consumer satellite options. No fiber optic cable to the island either. There are lots of little DVD rental places.
~ It will take a few days to catch up on email and blog reads.
