nice writing....

best of luck in 2008

hope your earth only shakes in a positive way


Thank you.

I was wondering, are earthquakes common in your part of the world?


not in australia though I can remember feeling the newcastle earthquake back in the 80s.

as a child in new zealand we all had to practise crouching under our desks at school for 'earthquake training'. they were more common in NZ


Funny, as a child in New York, they would make us practice crouching under our desks in case of a nuclear attack.

I'm sure it would have helped immensely.


what's happened to your blog?


It goes dormant from time to time.

I have all these great ideas in the middle of the night, but I don't really want to get up and post for a couple of hours, especially not when I have to get up at 4 AM.

Really, all the talk about "voice recognition software" is useless to me. What I need is "thought recognition software". Then I would have an absolutely fabulous blog with multiple daily posts. Like right now, for instance, I have some good pictures to post and I am done with work for the day, but I really need to go get a ride in on the training rollers. That will be much better for me than spending 90 minutes pecking out a post with my pitifully slow typing skills.

I'm better at quick comments or e-mails than I am with posting. I take too much time pondering what I will say.

And, really, who is listening anyway?

Tile roofs are very hazardous in earthquake-prone areas like California. This was evident in the 1995 Kobe Earthquake in Japan. The majority of the casualties were located in old Japanese style houses with tile roofs. These heavy tile roofs, ironically designed against typhoons, unmercifully collapsed on the people inside. It would be better if you use metal roofs, since hurricanes are not common in California.
