Canada?

Thank you Gardener.  I had never thought of Canada as a place for earthquakes and with LTC's penchant for country hopping, it made me wonder.

Yeah it was in Canada. West coast sits on the same fault line as Seattle. Vancouver is overdue for "the big one" by several centuries. It will mess this place up something fierce when it eventually hits.

Well, that can be tough to do during this pontificate...
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

We should all send the Pope Krampus cards. Then maybe we'll feel better. ;)

Went to a chili feed for a bunch of remote controlled airplane flyers.  It's been a tradition for many, many years to do this on January 1st.  They used to go out to the field at sunup and fly their planes no matter the weather on that day.  They have flown in it all except in cases of lightening.  There are just a few of them left now and those are in their hundreds  :lol:  so they don't do that anymore.  It's boring as all get out, but these are a good bunch of men.

I turn 18 today, but we celebrated last night with chicken dinner, blackberry cheesecake, and a glass of white wine.  8)

Isn't she Canadian?
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.
