  3. shaken, not stirred...someone finally got my memo.

    Pretty funny to listen to the announcers at the hockey game get all shrill and tense.

  4. I remember my first earth quake: It wasn't any bigger than this one, but it scared he heck out of me. It was at night, I ran out expecting the whole neighborhood to be in the streets... crickets. The next day kind locals explained that till things start falling off the shelves they don't bother.

  5. Unless you play hockey, Vanda, then you're a fraidy cat. If teeth aren't the issue, well then...

  6. On the other hand, maybe I won't take that hike up to Mt Wilson tomorrow.

    Or maybe I will.

  7. I've been through a few biggies. The Whittier in 1987 made my house shake violently and tore up my chimney. I was at Candlestick Park in the upper deck for the Loma Prieta in 1989. This one was mellow, but you never know where they're gonna lead.

    AH - I bet you know some anti-quake remedies.

  8. Well you're just bad luck all around, aren't you? Aspirin is the remedy of choice, I assume?

  9. Earl may have a solution. But SERIOUSLY, you know we have 12 hours to find out whether this was earth's greeting card.

  10. AH - Do I put the aspirin directly into the ground? (How deep? How deep!) Did you say 12 inches? Or do I mix the aspirin with water and spray it all over the ground?

  13. I felt it, and I was glad that it wasn't much to remember.

  14. Just a reminder to everybody that we have plenty of emergency preparedness information on the city website.

  15. "I felt it." "I didn't feel it." "Maybe if you went a little slower." "Maybe if I sang Cole Porter." "Maybe a jacuzzi would help."

    Tonight, Mister Earl will be Backstage at the Coffee Gallery in (gasp!) Altadena seeing Will Ryan and his Cactus Cowboys with special guest Ian Whitcomb. Will Ryan has quite a resume.

  16. I'm singing, "I feel the earth move under my feet...."
    That's all I remember. You folks in Cali like living on the edge don't you!
