Reminds me !Every Thursday AM is my golf day !!We had a 5.6 mag earthquake a short while ago.Lost a few glass trinkets which was fortunate since it was one of thosw "BAM!" then "roll for 20+ seconds" or so.Its epicenter was 5 miles deep 10 miles from us.Scarey while it is rolling !I hope we get no major aftershock!Got thorough on the phone to my sister who lives alone.She was OK but sounded like she was speaking the new language since she was shook up!(literally) No MAJOR damage reported so far.
Phew! My late uncle and aunt who resided in Carmel used to regale me with stories of earth tremors - but, he said they were nothing like the bombs, which I remember vividly, dropped on my home town during WW11. All's well, as long as nothing interferes with your Golf....

WW11??? You must be back from the far distant future. Can you reveal the outcome of WW3 through WW11?
Carmel is a nice little town on the coast not too far from San Jose ,my home.It's northern border is the Pebble Beach Golf Course.I hope they had a chance to play it while they were here.Green fees are over 300 dollars now).I 've experienced many earthquakes since I moved here in 1956 and the only one in our area that was a disaster was in 1989. I spent some time in England during WW2 and agree the bombs were a hell of a lot worse but at least predictable(every night)I have an admiration for the Englih ppeople born of that experience.The constant pounding was unbelievable to those who never experienced it !

My wonderful son who writes English as a second language is visiting the States now so we converse with him with IM. His spelling is very creative but extremely understandable. Next semester he begins engineering school at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology and has tested out of English classes. I hope they force him to improve his English writing.
