(21 February 10) A message in a bottle that I cast from a ship has washed ashore on Orchid Island off Taiwan and apparently it has made big news on the little island.
"It is a BIG wonderful, happy news for everyone in the island. Your letter brings Orchid Island good luck and a talk for the next few years - I am sure!!!"
