    I think I remember hearing about those. I remember when I lived in Huntsville, I was always worried about Memphis - pretty gnarly fault line running right under Memphis.

    Yup.

    I seriously suck at this, though. I'm supposed to get up and run under a doorway or something, and instead, every single time, I just sit here and think, "Hey! I think this is an earthquake!"

    They revised it down to a 4.1, though, which means my original estimate was pretty good.

    You know, I think it's gingko biloba that helps with quick thinking. You should probably look into it LOL. You might be buried under the 2nd floor before you realize what's going on!

    My place is built very well, actually. I mean, I hope it is.

    I hope so too. And I was just messing with you. It concerns me, all these smaller quakes. I was alive during the 89 quake in San Francisco. I wasn't there, but it still broke my heart.

    I had to look that up. All that damage and it was a 6.9.

    This was one of the first hits after google imaging "1989 San Francisco earthquake" John McTernan's Insights San Francisco Nearly Destroyed by Earthquake after Massive Pro Abortion Rally

    Find a doorway for protection.

    You do that justabubba, and don't cry out in pain when that door comes crashing on your fingers. Standing under a door way during a earthquake is a big no no.

    Most injuries during an earthquake happen when one is moving and looking for something to get under during a quake.

    Most quakes seem to happen in the early morning hours when most are in bed. The safest thing to do is stay in bed.

    Last night quake I happen to be outside so I really didn't feel it but I sure heard it.

    The one that happened almost an hour ago I sure felt it. Both were just "C" ticket earthquakes.

    Those of us who been in California long enough grade our earth quakes using the old Dinsneyland ticket book system. An "A" ticket is used for the street car ride on Main Street. An "E" ticket would be the big one, like going on the Matterhorn ride. These past two earthquakes were "C" ticket.

    The Northridge quake that collapsed buildings and freeway overpasses was a "D" ticket quake.

    But it seems like these quakes have been following me around. In the past three months I've experienced six quakes, Three "C" ticket quakes and three "B" ticket quakes.

    Well I have water, canned goods, a generator, gas, gold, and sufficient supply of ammunition to get me through six weeks of lawlessness, looting, rioting, raping, etc. that libs just call civil disobedience and blame it on Bush.

    Where were you drinking, on Skid-Row ? Were you drinking Thunderbird wine or Gallo fortified Red Mountain ?

    No, it was actually very good, believe it or not. But damn, wine doesn't need to be 16%. It's nice to be able to sip the wine throughout an evening of long, boring (but important) functions where I'm supposed to be on my best behavior. I have to be there yet again tonight, and if they're still serving that stuff then forget it, it's Tecate for me.

    Frisco is a good place for a big one. I only hope Pelosi is there when it happens.
