Wow, I read that pic of survival in todays news. What an ordeal to go through, - glad to hear of survival and recovery in the end. As for 'you know you live in Chch when'.....I guess it is/was like that. It sounded a bit like a town/city in a third world country. It's just very sad what happened in Chch.
I love to hear from you! Tell me what's in your brain, your heart or your dinner plate :D.
