Loved the picture in this one................
The 1883 Krakatoa eruption in the Sunda Strait began on the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883—with origins as early as that May—and peaked on the late morning of Monday, 27 August 1883, when over 70% of the island of Krakatoa and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera.
The eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history and explosions were so violent that they were heard 3,110 kilometres (1,930 mi) away in Perth, Western Australia, and Rodrigues near Mauritius, 4,800 kilometres (3,000 mi) away. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. The sound was claimed to be heard in 50 different locations around the world and the sound wave is recorded to have travelled the globe 7 times over.

Official Lost & Found Day (2nd Fri of Dec) - The official announcement of the Lost And Found Day was on November 19th, 2012. The second Friday of every December marks this observance Day. The original concept of this event date back to 1805. It was in that year, Napoleon Bonaparte had opened the first Lost and Found the office in Paris. The Day is celebrated in an idea of having a place where people could come to recover the things they have lost. It is also a Day for renewed hope and belief that the things lost should never be forgotten or abandoned. One should take time efforts to search for those items after it has been lost. On this day, anyone can make an effort to find out the stuff lost.
