Mount Agung erupting is obviously the biggest news this week. The eruption was no surprise, but the timing was unfortunate being just before the Christmas period. Who knows how long this is going to go on, but we all hope and pray that it will be over soon and we can all get back to our normal lives as soon as possible. Having said that, it’s also true that Mount Agung has as much right to erupt as we do being here at all, so I guess we just have to accept this as nature and do the best we can with it. I don’t think anyone was expecting the winds to be so much against us though, but that too is in the hands of nature. Hopefully by the time you read this the winds have changed and the airport being closed issue has moved somewhere else. Hopefully not to your airport. Our thoughts go out to all those trying to get off the island in a hurry and can’t fly, and to those people living in the Karangasem area who are suffering the brunt of this event. Life is an adventure. Let’s never forget that.

So what’s happening over the next weeks? Good question. There are a number of events on or planned around town, hopefully the star performers will be able to make it in. If not, maybe we (the beat) should just put one huge event on just for the hell of it. Let’s see. Keep your heads down folks!
