Mother, Mother Ocean
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late
―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker
Counted the Stars
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

I got up about an hour or so and when checking my usual stuff, saw a short bit on it online from an acquaintance.......
6.0, with some healthy after shocks. One of those was a 3.6.
So far there are 3 people reported to have serious injuries. Major damage in Sonoma and Napa.
There will be updates all day. I have KTLA on right now.
Positive Waves and as Buck Pennington says, I hope the Diety at Hand has interest in all these folks recovering from the quake.

This has become SOP 3 times a week since my VA check up this past spring.
Pre diabetic is what my doctor at the Lancaster Veterans Community Based Outreach Clinic said.
I do an hour at 2.5 mph.
I also have to cut my carb intake.
