Sunday 7th Day Chanukah - Volcano In the Caribbean

Good morning from my computer to yours...

It is the 7th day of Chanukah and I am hoping to get Gelt from my kids :) Hey, could happen! I have two more chocolate coins, one for today and one for tomorrow. Hoping not to eat too much at the Chanukah Party this evening..

And, planning on watching the Dolphins play the Jets this afternoon and hoping they win, really hoping here.. would be the cheapest, easiest, best Chanukah present I could get. After the gelt of course ;) (gelt = money)

Anyways... since the Caribbean is quiet meteorologically today I thought I would write about what is not quiet in the Caribbean and that is Soufriere Hills Volcano and the region around the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Does everything think this is normal that every day there is minor earthquake activity in and around VI and PR? I don't think so..and do think it's worth watching. Not sure if they are connected but they are in the same basin, same part of the world and same small little Caribbean Ring of Fire.

Great article on the Caribbean Trench:

Know that even when there are no hurricanes you can still check out their great site: (detail oriented great story)
"Director of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory Dr. Nicolas Fournier recommended to the NDPRAC that the hazard level be moved to Level Four because of the increased lava extrusions, rock-falls and pyroclastic flows on the north and north-west areas of the dome."

Old but still valid site from 2005 about possibilities of Tsunami in Carib:

Wiki forever please remember to contribute to Wikipedia with your charity as they are in need of money and it is a library that is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a great is that? And, it's non-denominational!! guy) (surprisingly has not been updated...)

"The song and album are named for the then-dormant Soufrière Hills volcano on the island of Montserrat in the British West Indies where Buffett recorded the album in May 1979 at AIR Studios. The studio was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and Soufrière Hills erupted again in 1995"

Now, I don’t know, I don’t know where I’m a gonna go
when the volcano blow
Let me say it now
I don’t know, I don’t know where I’m a gonna go
when the volcano blow

Ground, she movin’ under me
Tidal waves out on the sea
Sulfur smoke up in the sky
Pretty soon we learn to fly

I don’t know, I don’t know where I’m a gonna go
when the volcano blow
Let me hear you now
I don’t know, I don’t know where I’m a gonna go
when the volcano blow

My girl quickly say to me
"Mon you better watch your feet"
Lava come down soft and hot
"You better lava me now or lava me not


No time to count what I’m worth
cause I just left the planet Earth
Where I go I hope there’s rum
Not to worry mon soon come


But I don’t want to land in New York City
I don’t want to land in Mexico
I don’t want to land on no Three Mile Island
I don’t want to see my skin a-glow

Don’t want to land in Comanche Sky Park
or in Nashville, Tennessee
I don’t want to land in no San Juan airport or
the Yukon Territory

Don’t want to land no San Diego
Don’t want to land in no Buzzards Bay
I don’t want to land on no Ayatollah
I got nothin’ more to say


When you live in a Jimmy Buffett world you can go anywhere... every place is a place to start when you go from the heart ;)

Go where your heart takes you... and have a beautiful day..

must have been the same year as Xanadu lol....

so...if you are in the South Florida area and you are not going to the Meyer/Schwartz Family Chanukah Party this evening feel free to go on over to Gulfstream Racetrack in Hallandale and have one wonderful Chanukah Party. Enjoy the concert..

As for me.. from my window on the world to yours.. I am going out shopping in the deep blue sunshine of Miami in December and buy some last minute presents, get some exercise, give thanks for FINALLY feeling better and almost myself again. And.. looking forward to the rest of the week as it's my birthday week and my boyfriend is coming to town and gonna party ;) You heard it here first ;) And... it's the
start of a whole near year.. 2009 friggin cool is that?

Happy Chanukah..

Besos and Blessings.. Bobbi
(truly the best present i have had in a long time... beautiful song with a purpose)
