Has anyone heard from him of late? He is in New Zealand I believe and they just had a 7.0 mag. quake.

Yes, but it was several hundred miles away.  There is probably some tsunami danger, but I doubt it caused a significant jolt to New Zealand.

Thanks for everyone's concern.  I am fine and dandy, along with all the country.  There was a small worrry that the quake would produce a tsunami but thank God that never came about.  No damage anywhere, it was too distant.

Good to see you!  It's been a while and I've begun to worry.

Many years!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Glad to see you are fine, please check in at various random times, good peoples are a rarity in today's crazy world...
