Fire on Ice: Photos of Iceland’s Disruptive Volcano

One of nature’s most spectacular and devastating phenomenon. From The Big Picture:


British civil aviation authorities ordered the country’s airspace closed as of noon, due to a cloud of ash drifting from the erupting Eyjafjallaj??kull volcano in Iceland. The volcano has erupted for the second time in less than a month, melting ice, shooting smoke and steam into the air and forcing hundreds of people to flee rising floodwaters. The volcanic ash has forced the cancellation of many flights and disrupted air traffic across northern Europe, stranding thousands of passengers.”

Delicious Japanese Ale


White Ale – tasty ale flavored with coriander, orange peel and nutmeg. Product of Japan. The owl in the logo is probably a Japanese pun on “ale”.
