Thankful Thursday

Hello, my name is Amanda and it has been 4 days since my last big shake.

The earthquake commission people called round today and inspected our cracks (!!!) and broken stuff.

We are very thankful things are not as bad as they could be.

And yet nothing filters through on the news channels here in the UK which is disgusting. Can't believe you guys are still having to live with shocks, shocks and more after shocks. I really hope the good green earth settles down soon.

Hi Steve, I guess the 'thrill' of the early event has worn off for the media. We're no longer hardly mentioned on our own news!!

Adam's over here at the moment, visiting his family... I guess he's hoping it'll all be sorted by the time he gets home!

Look at me behaving and not commenting on your cracks inspection. Something else you can be thankful for.

I'm the old guy with Angelina.

Well, after the tremor the Welsh Dresser fell on my head and I started to hallucinate

I've never heard of seismic activity lasting for such a long time. I know how unnerving it is and I sure do hope it all settles down soon. I will not make any cracks about the crack inspection but I'm laughing mine right off! PS: that Angelina is such a hottie.

Glad all is well. I remember the after shocks after the Great Hanshin earthquake , went on so long, we were all tense wrecks long after the shaking was done.

Rol - thats lucky for Adam! Tell him we've now gone for 5 days without much a shake up (except a 4 yeserday morning...)

Louciao- You know, I was SURE you would mention it!!

Barry- haha, very droll!

Robert- thank you. :-)

Stick Up- they reckon the aftershocks can go on for months yet!

MisBehaving - ah yes, you have "shakey isles' as well don't you, I think we're almost getting used to them. The main problem is that now wer are going for days without the bigger ones that when we do get them, we get a fright all over again!!

The Earthquake Commission People? How cool!

Great to hear your own homestead is in good shape considering.
