It's nice when they center out in the middle of pretty much nothing but golf courses and desert!

i'd agree with you jkath but the only time we get earthquakes (which is rare) it feels like a truck driving past the house. i guess that's good since i'd probably be scared to death lol.

The only one that scared me was the January '94 Northridge quake back when son #1 was a baby. I was sleeping on the 2nd floor (where you feel it much worse) and I ran and grabbed him and stood in a doorway. That was the longest quake I can remember, being almost 20 seconds, and it destroyed so much! Thank goodness I was 40 miles away!

I heard it on the news radio station here. 5.5 magnatude! Im VERY happy that youre alright! Anything in the house broken? Good thing the Cafe is built on flexable rubber mounts! If there is an earthquake, the ground will shake but we would be bufferd. Talking about shakes.... I could go for one!

Luvs, I'm sorry about your computer! I had to give up my last month of personal training to buy my comp 2 months ago.

I'll try to be back later, but the h needs the comp for an online poker tournament.

Poker is over for the h, but I am slee-hee-hee-py!

I've put toasted coconut in with the vanilla coffee, so tomorrow morning, we'll all have fresh kona coffee, well except you, luvs - I put some fresh unsweetened apple juice in the frige, so you'll be craving more food later.

I'm off to bed now -
g'night!
