Volcanoes tonight on Nat'l Geo. Channel: thinking about Thrinukagigur before the ticking timebomb that's Mount Nyiragongo devours Goma's 1M residents

Feel like probing the volatility of Iceland's Thrinukagigur volcano, located close to our quarrelsome friend from last spring, Eyjafjallajökull?
No takers?

Well, some scientists, perhaps knowing of your sheepishness towards going inside a volcano thought it'd be fun, and tonight they report on what they found.


You might be interested in knowing that according to the very friendly and accommodating folks at www.IcelandTouristBoard.com, whom I hear from once in a while,
"While the world famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano wreaked havoc for millions of travelers, it resulted in a 16 % increase in tourism from N. America to our island nation for the first 11 months of 2010, versus the same period last year."
If you have never been to Iceland -home to HBB favorite Yohanna- and for more than just a weekend, it's AWESOME!
AWESOME TIMES TEN!


National Geographic Channel's Into Iceland's Volcano airs tonight at 9 pm. and repeats at midnight and 8 and 11 p.m. Friday.


After that visit to the far north, the
National Geographic Channel sets its sights farther south and goes to Africa's most active volcano, Mount Nyiragongo, which is a ticking time-bomb for Goma's one million residents under the volcano.

Deadly volcano that's one of the most dangerous on Earth... but scientists can't predict when it will erupt as it's in the middle of a war zone

Mount Nyiragongo is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world - and scientists say it is only a matter of time before it makes the city below a modern day Pompeii.


But they don't know when since, located as it is in the war-torn eastern edge of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the two mile high cauldron of lava is also one of the least well understood.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
