2. All that are spouting, gurgling, hissing, splattering, flowing.

There are a lot of active ones lately. You tube has a bunch of live feeds to watch them.

4. I check in each day and I'm rooting for the puny one on the left...

The new long fissure opened up about 500 meters away, and it's flowing into totally new real estate.

We will soon have THREE spatter cones. Hell, maybe even more, because the fissure is a couple of hundred meters long.

Really cool stuff, and yet we have to remember this whole episode is really small potatoes in the bigger scheme of things,

6. I've seen a lot of news pics of the volcano in Iceland but what gets me is all the people

walking up to it and standing real close to the HOT. SCALDING. LAVA.

Q: What's another term to use for Icelandic volcano visitors?

A: Crispy critters!

I was in Western Montana in 1980 when Mt. St. Helens blew and that wasn't far enough
away!

11. It's just the two. But it wouldn't surprise me if another does open.

That's a fitting soundtrack.
