  • Living with earthquakes

    For those who read Jim's account of being shaken awake and have an interest in earthquakes might be interested in this link. My city, Christchurch, New Zealand, has had a series of bad earthquakes which trashed some parts of the city. Our CBD is still fenced off as about 800 medium and high rise buildings have been trashed or given demolition orders. Demolition work also started yesterday on 5,000 residences in the worst areas. Some houses are only 4 - 5 years old. Anyway, for those who like Living With Wolves, here is Living With Earthquakes - with aftershocks now expected to reach 10-thousand shakes this week :+) So many shakes the Geology Dept gave us our own website.

      Magic, hard to imagine living through an earthquake. I will take the occasional snow storm that we get here in southern Wisconsin. I guess there have been some minor quakes but nothing that I have ever felt. Old Mother Nature has been having her way the last year or two all over the world. Hope you are in a safe area of your city.

        I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

        Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

        What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

        Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

        I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

        Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
