What If...You knew?

Southern California is still moving and shaking.  Below is a link to the USGS map of California which shows quakes in the last few minutes and hours, in REDWhat if you knew you had one week to live? Or that you would not survive a disaster coming your way? Would you change anything in your life? What would you do differently?  Earthquakes and California are like peanut-butter and jelly. Seismologist Pat Abbott and many others, say that we're long over due for the big one.  Here is a list of the quakes which are 3.0 and above.

Regulators Approve First Offshore Wind Farm in U.S.

We couldn't resist commenting on place-holder Republican talking head suit, Scott Brown, protesting the decision to approve the wind farm due to hurting tourism.  Just as in the style of a character out of a movie; like JAWS for instance.  Remember in JAWS, when the sheriff, (actor Roy Scheider), wanted to close the beach to prevent JAWS from eating the tourists and townspeople but the Mayor, (played by popular actor Murry Hamilton), insisted the beaches stay open so not to hurt tourism.

Regulators Approve First Offshore Wind Farm in U.S. - Readers' Comments -

"Finally! Bravo...a few decades late but at least it's a start. Get over the anal appearance thing already! When the lights go out completely, which most definitely isn't that far off! ...there might be tourism again! Scott Brown, the opposition, appears so hokey, reminding us of the typical backward-thinking Republican character portrayed in the film, 'Jaws'. It has to be better than drooling over every drop of oil off our coastlines so much that we're willing to die for it. Can you smell or see the oil spill over there yet, Scott?"

Shake, Rattle & Roll ~ 8 Pointer Hits California

An 8. something earthquake hits California?  This isn't a prediction, just a reminder!  Got Rice?  Or whatever you can't live without?  We're just sayin...  It's doesn't hurt to have a plan and an emergency backpack. Perhaps a small portable stove, a tent, sleeping bags, water, some instant dehydrated food.  Most camp stores have all the containers and even Target has a camp section.  The month of APRIL is Earthquake Month.  The San Francisco earthquake was April 18th, 1906...must have been there in a past life, as for some reason that date sticks with us.

We've been told it's not a matter of "If" but "When" that we'll have a quake like this. We've been told we're long "Overdue" for "The Big One!" Given the recent large quakes in Haiti and Chile, one who lives in California or any other earthquake prone area must give pause, be reminded & be prepared. If you click on the, Post Title, above or the word "RED" below, it will take you directly to the USGS maps site. You can see all the quakes happening now, just in the last hour in fact, noted in RED.  Thinking of moving to California?  The USGS map might change your mind.

We're not Sizemo's or Geo's but one can't help but notice we're certainly in a shakey highly intense roley-poley atmosphere lately on this planet Earth.  If everyone would just calm down!  Hmmmm...  But can we get a grip on all the internal and external influences that shape our world?  Unlike the animals, our instincts are not honed to nature as well as they should be.  We'd better pay more attention and get ready and perhaps wean ourselves off all the Rx drugs.  You know, be "in training" so to speak.  We're too unconscious most of us--time to be in the Present moment and leave all the trivial stuff behind us as much as possible!  You know, he said, she said,...what happened yesterday is clogging up our brains so badly we can't see today.  Hate radio has us so seriously tangled up in our underwear, we're not functioning over stuff that won't affect us anyway.  So many of us have no variety in where we get our facts...(mostly entertainment-opinion, not facts), so much of it being useless information from suits only interested in selling ad time.

If you're in California, it wouldn't be a waste of time to check out the many available suggestions on what to do in an earthquake and how to survive.  Google this:  "Triangle of Life".  The Triangle of Life is a controversial theory advocated by Doug Copp about how to survive a major earthquake. It is intended to replace the traditional...personally we think he knows what he's talking about, if you consider his experience.

And here's one from the SOC: (State of California).  Certainly not the last word on survival but it's a start.  And remember to check out those quakes at the USGS website by clicking on the "Red."  Interesting pattern taking shape there?  SOC earthquake info:

We love this short, 48 minute film: "Permaculture - Farms for the Future". It's very uplifting to see--it makes a lot of sense!  If only this were implemented EVERYWHERE!  Then if we could just stop Factory Farming of animals, (another polluting, inhumane and destructive practice), we'd be moving in a forward direction instead of backwards as we are so quickly now.  Many of you are already doing this future farming on a smaller scale--it's not that difficult!  It should be shown at every AG School!  Check it out.  Well worth the watch!  Check it out you'll be glad you did!
