Just when I am feeling guilty thinking my week is boring … there is a major earthquake, and I think who cares if I am bored …
The World: “The last major earthquake worldwide was the 7-magnitude quake that hit Haiti on Jan. 12 and devastated the country, killing more than 200,000 people. Under the scale used to measure the shaking strength of quakes, Saturday’s quake in Chile was about 500 times stronger than the one in Haiti, according to media reports.” Tsunami warnings across Pacific after Chile quake – MarketWatch

Places: I always loved the Duck Pond … as a child feeding the ducks and as an adult visiting a family friend Olga Duffy. Great memories!
“Nestled away in the heart of Buckhead, the duck pond is a small, quiet greenspace that is a sanctuary for many of the city’s wild creatures. Originally a development of Peachtree Heights East made by Eretus Rivers in 1932, his widow, Una Sperry Rivers, declared the duck pond area a park for the residents.”
So two major earthquakes in 2010. So what is news or interesting to me is really irrelevant. I will rethink blogging about this. I am intrigued by “encore careers” … so maybe that is why I am doing this. Trying to figure out what is next.
