Thurs 3/23 Update 5:25 pm I’m learning a lot about myself this week from tracking my meals. Since The Boss is away my meals and eating habits are totally my own. I don’t have to think about, shop for, plan or cook with someone else’s preferences in mind. I like not having regularly scheduled meals. […]

We eagerly await the newest technology release as if we are not satisfied with a fully capable and working phone. We strive for more. We equate technology with power, and power with success.

Weds 3/22 The Anti-Bunko meeting last night was a rousing success. Seven showed up and five of us ordered zero sides. Two ordered tots with their burgers. I guess it takes some people a longer time to learn why their jeans no longer fit. I’m not sure if it was last night’s burger or busyness […]

Yes as in a 4.5 earthquake.
I felt a small rumble roll through the house while hearing reports of different locations having whole house shaking events. It depends on which fault line your house is near. We likely have zero damage but others may fare worse. We had earthquake coverage until a few years ago when the insurance company cancelled our earthquake rider. It will take a day or two for damage reports to make the news.
I saw an interesting Ask This Old House episode on PBS on how to harden your house against earthquakes. It was extremely interesting. It wasn’t all that expensive and it made a huge difference in the amount of damage. I remember they added various types of bracing to the foundation, bracing to the gas lines, and they secured furniture like bookcases to the wall so they wouldn’t injure people if they fell.
I’ll search for the episode online and take a look. Thanks.
