    Sorry, Sharon. I guess my answer was a little "flip" and I apologize. Must
    have been my frame of mind at the time...I was trying to be humorous about
    the recent convention in LA.

    Yes. There was one badly collapsed freeway section which killed several
    people. Part of the Bay Bridge also collapsed and one person was killed. The
    only collapsed houses I saw were the few built on the marina (sandfill)
    area. I did not see one building in the city collapsed.

    LA's earthquake was much bigger...and "badder"...than SF's was.

    Moving on...I'm wondering, after seeing your bandaged hand this past
    weekend, how in the world you're able to type?...the "peck" method? Great
    seeing you, sharing breakfast, and congratulations again on being chosen
    elem. art teacher of the year! Super! Toodles.......
