Happy Earth Day folks!

Egads! Do I have this right, it's been 50 years since the first one? I remember our school class going out on a little nature field trip to celebrate... but mostly I recall that it ended up pouring down rain, we all wound up soaked to the bone waiting for the bus to return for us, and eventually we slogged our sorry looking selves back onto the school bus for the drive back. Some things just sorta stick to the roof of your mind...

Have you ever stayed there? It's on my list of places to check in to.
It's still early, but it's Friday and I need a martini. Can I mix you one up Miss Lucky?

The motel should be OK. The epicenter was 56 km (about 25 miles) to the west along the highway. No damage reported, according to usgs.gov . That was a 6.5 modified Mercalli intensity, not a magnitude. The hypocenter was shallow, anyway, at only 1.2 km depth. Sounds like just a readjustment long the Walker lane fault zone.

We get highways buckling here due to heat. The concrete pavemet expasnds (despite the designed expansion joints), the pavement locks at the interface, and occasionally the pavement buckles and cracks. Over in Oklahoma 2 years ago a moorcyclist went over one of the pavement buckles at the legal speed of 75 miles per hour and it launched him and his bike out of control. Killed him.

Travel safely, my friend.

No I’ve never stayed at the Clown. I had a lost weekend in Tonopah a long time ago. I don’t remember much about it but I know I didn’t stay there. I’m not even sure why the hell I was in Tonopah in the first place. I think a friend and I thought it’d be fun to randomly party there...

I have never had a martini, sure why not

Current events reminded me of this.

Maybe you'll like it too.

Figjam, that comic depicting the man on train tracks was perfect.
