that big one that hit during the World Series was in San Francisco, it caused many freeways to go down and lots of fires too, many people lost their lives. We lived in Southern Cali at the time. The Northridge one I think happened in winter. Once we had a big one when Ed was at a conference in Newport Beach, not too far from where we lived. People from the midwest were there, and they all stayed at the same hotel. it hit in the middle of the night, and everyone poured out of the hotel in their pj's. one guy told Ed he was spending the night on the beach. Ed had to coax him back to his room, saying, "we hardly ever have one THAT big". so what happens next? a HUGE aftershock, as big as the original quake. the guy packed his bag, and spent the rest of the night on the beach! haha! bgnow 104
Doris, keep your college money separate, it's a great idea for you to go back to school.
We lived through many many very scary earthquakes in California. Ed and I think the hubbub over yesterday's is a hoot. The big Northridge earthquake was maybe 40 miles from our house. We have a very high 4 poster bed, and our 55 pound dog NEVER jumped on it, he couldn't do it. Well, I think that one happened at 5 in the morning. all of a sudden, Archie jumped on the bed, and right after, the house stated shaking so bad, a tv in the guest room fell off a chest of drawers onto the floor. Ed was screaming "earthquake" and we were just holding on to each other until it was over. When we turned on the tv, we saw all the freeways that fell down, and people in their cars stranded on overpasses that needed to be rescued by helicopter. a friend of mine was babysitting her grandkids very near the epicenter. she and her husband had a lot of trouble finding shoes to put on their feet to get out of the house strewn with glass from all the windows broken and dishes on the floor. ever since I always slept with a pair of old sneakers under my bed in case I had to do the same. between that and living through the worst tornado ever in Oklahoma, I have always kept emergency supplies handy.
Good Morning,Doris. I had to laugh. You do not answer the phone but they drop tem off anyway...you cannot win. I had a terrible night. I just could not sleep. Nothing on my mind. I hope it is just a one night thing. My BG 96. I will take it. Wondering what Irene is going to do. I will take rain but no wind. TOPS this morning. I just do the business part one of the members is doing the Program. I hope things are good with you. Take good care. What did hubby decide about his back? My best to him. HUGS,Reed Go to HOME look to the side Kristin put a photo of her handsome boy.
hi Doris, at least you can make sure you get all your i's dotted and t's crossed before enrolling in the spring. know what you have to do & fill out & when it's due and write it on your calendar.
my mom's back in the hospital with her diverticulosis, I think she'll get out tonight. that earthquake sure rattled her bed! my brother works at a hospital in Culpepper, much closer to the epicenter, I'll bet he felt it. hopefully he was out of the operating room when it hit.
Good Morning,Doris. I hope things are well with you. I think your hubby better think hard about another back operation. I had those 5 injections of SUPARTZ in my back and have not had a pain. On my knees about 80% good. Crazy day yesterday. BG's 91 68 103 294 192. This morning 111. That 294 scared me. Now we need to worry about Irene. Will she hit Florida? They say NO. Just heavy rain. That we need. I hope you are doing well your readings good you still going to try college? i think that would be great. Have a great day. I care. HUGS,Reed
Good Monday Morning,Doris.. How are things with you? I got my BG to 91 after my dinner out and 194. Still hot here and,now,we have to worry about Irene. Will she become a hurricane? Will she hit Florida? I hope not. Russ is doing better. He sees his Neurologist this morning. I am feeling better than I deserve. You going to have gkids today. Is tyhis the day your hubby has MRI? I hope things are better with him. Pain is awful. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Doris, I think we had this same conversation a year ago about him! I agree with you. The only reason I say anything at all is so that new people don't think that is what life is going to be like. Life is what you make it and I have no desire to live it angry and upset about things I have no control over. I try to avoid miserable people!
