Earthquake in Christchurch

A 4.3 earthquakes was felt in Christchurch this morning.

This is sad news, because Christchurch has already had their fair share of quakes not too long ago.

My thoughts go out to all the kids there.

Ring of fire

New Zealand is part of the so called "ring of fire" that goes around the Pacific.

The fault lines on the "ring of fire" are a bit like the stitching on a baseball.
