God has seen fit to create a new island in the Red Sea.
Volcanic activity in the Red Sea that started in mid-December has created what looks like a new island. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured a high-resolution, natural-color image on December 23, 2011 showing an apparent island where previously there was none.
My friend Donna (Rantings on the Bay) and I are claiming this island for our own. We already have our underwear packed in Wal-Mart bags. She has promised to do the dishes if I will cook, and I have agreed. We hereby dub the name of this island “Bandita Rant”. Christening coming soon.
