    Don’t know where to put this........Cannot sleep thinking about one of the news of today, about the man from El Salvador that drowned crossing the Rio Grande with his almost 2 year old daughter inside his shirt. ( don’t want to put the photo here ) Was thinking of Doug’s thread about borders and that this would not have happened if there were no borders. Just saying. And I do believe in them. But still , these tragedies break my heart. This is my here and now.

    11:25 pm. Big earthquake in Costa Rica. It woke me up, everything shaking, but nothing fell. Other areas more affected than us.

    We didnt feel the aftershocks, fortunately, although other areas did. We are close to a river, and the river rocks here work like shock absorbers. So when we feel anything at all, I know it has to be a big one.
    Even 1 km north or south of us people feel it much worse than we do.
    Thanks for your concern.

    I’m so jealous of this guy’s project. Made a garden painting, after Van Gogh’s Olive Trees. On more than an acre.

    Ulli, I hope your surrounding was ok after the earthquake. Seems like you live in a very nice place with a river nearby, you must be well-protected by it.
    M6.6 is quite big, I know from having experienced the Fukushima earthquake when I lived in Tokyo at that time. It looked like the concrete ground was moving in waves, I couldn't stay standing. There were many aftershocks, I remember not being able to sleep so well because they would keep me awake.

    Please stay safe everyone. May all be well.

    This one felt like waves, like I was in a boat. I prefer those to the ones that give you a sudden jolt, and make a loud noise. It lasted a while but was quite gentle. There was not that much damage and to my knowledge no lives were lost although it was high on the Richter scale.

    So my condominium building is up on a hill overlooking a city of 77,000 people here in Northern NJ. It is the ideal place to broadcast from and so we have all sorts of telecomm broadcasting equipment up there both for telecommunications (cell phones) and the cities police and fire department equipment. The plus about this is that this save each condo unit owner about $85 per month in fees because of the rent we collect.



    Last week a crane was parked in front of the building installing a new tower to the top of our roof. Today, there were a few men doing some installation work. All day my telephone reception was terrible. I think our tower was turned off and so I was connecting to a tower far away. Suddenly at 2:54 I "heard" a high pitched sound. I even felt it in my sternum. I made a phone call and the reception was suddenly great. Just wondering if this is 5G?

    I am also thinking I have a heightened awareness of this right now because I am in the middle of a dry fast (no food except juice vegetables in 4 days, no liquid in the last 20 hours.)

    Have to make some inquiries about what's going on.

    Ah oui, Bien Sur, lest we forget about the French concert performer, Joseph Pujol, Le Petomane, who could inhale air and water into his nether region, blow out a candle at several yards distance, recreate "La Marseillaise" and "O Sole Mio" and with the great control of his sphincter also imitate thunderstorms and cannon fire.

    Though I am not a fan of potty humor, with the uniqueness of his particular gift and reports of his ability to stay in tune, you know where I'll be going with a recording device when I get access to that time machine. That man was a real yogi!
