That Chilean volcano, Chaiten is still kicking up a storm.

On January 19, this year, the dome collapsed in the centre of the volcano blowing a thick plume of ash and steam from the summit.

The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA's Terra satellite captured this false-colour image which includes visible and infrared light.
Vegetation is red, bare (possibly ash-covered) ground is brown, and water is deep blue.
The plume from the volcano appears off-white.

And here's me moaning about the heat here!

What are you doing online at 11.51?
I've just been admiring your pink woolly hat and now I'm off to shower and bed.

I don't sleep a lot. I was just looking at your blanket! Very impressive :-) I don't know how you have the patience!

I'm off to fling more paint around while listening to Demis Roussos.

Patience! This from a woman who crochets fine wire jewellery. Those little squares are great to carry around with a ball of the main colour.
