the lopped mosque top was a nice touch.

An island in Northern Sulawesi. Sangihe. About sixty homes and two churches destroyed and 34 feared dead. The latest disaster.

Indonesian landslide death toll rises to 24
Mon 15 Jan 2007 6:04 AM ET
JAKARTA, Jan 15 (Reuters) - The death toll from a landslide on a remote Indonesian island last week has risen to 24 after eight bodies were found buried under mud, a health department official said Monday.

Ten people are still missing following the landslide on Sangihe island late on Thursday, said Christian Tilla, chief of the health department of North Sulawesi province.

Sangihe is 2,200 km (1,400 miles) northeast of Jakarta in the seas between North Sulawesi province and Mindanao, a southern island of the Philippines.

Officials had earlier said that 16 people were killed in the landslide triggered by heavy rains.

Efforts to reach aid to some 4,000 displaced people have been hampered by heavy rains in the area, Tilla said. The survivors needed food and some were sick, he said.

Landslides occur frequently in Indonesia, where tropical downpours can quickly soak hillsides and deforestation often means there is little vegetation to hold the soil.

No, it says in the title S-I-G-H, sigh. It was a little test I was doing, to try and see how people would interpret it, and just as I thought, most responses were along the lines of S-I-G-N .

They wanted to see a "SIGN" in that photo. Or they wrongly assumed I had seen a "Sign"

And God and everyone else continues to sigh when confronted with Riccardo's sense of humour. Good one Dili.

Humor? You don't have the faintest clue xsbir. Do you have some sort of issue with me that you'd like everyone who calls me a friend or an acquaintance to know about; something YOU don't have the balls yourself to deal with like a man when we are face to face? Is there some purpose in your crass, public mudslinging? Have I ever personally insulted you or any member of your family? Are your lies, exaggerations and gossip motivated by some wrong that I have done to you? Do you feel some jealousy or envy toward me? And finally, is living the rest of your life as a quadriplegic something that appeals to you?????

the personal information may have been irrelevant, but it was funny to imagine.
