Things are a little wonky on the site for the moment. I’ve wiped out everything in order to upgrade wordpress (and keep it updated). I’ll be digging around for the missing images, they were not all in the wordpress upload directory for some reason. I’ve got all the posts restored. So it’s just a matter of time, but at least we’ll quit getting all the spammy posts in the comment.

Christmas Card 2009

For the five of you that aren’t on Facebook we’ve brought our website back from the darkness of the computer to my right.  In that time we’ve moved to Los Angeles and done quite a bit of career shuffling.  More on that later.

Earthquake Illinois

By Mark McEachran at 4:37 am on Friday, April 18, 2008

Leslie was up in Toronto, I had just arrived home that evening from San Francisco.  I had trouble sleeping with the jet lag and an empty house.  But I did manage to nod off around 2am only to be roused by the shaking and the noise at 4:37.

This was not my first rumbler.  In 1993 I was similarly jolted out of bed by a more violent quake.  This one was only a dozen miles away did more bouncing than shaking.  The ’93 quake condemned the main building of my high school and extended my spring break by a few days.  I was too shocked to take in the entire experience of this event.

The Illinois quake had extensive aftershocks, one in particular stands out because I was in the office.  My office is on the fifth floor of and old masonry building.  It started at 10:14 and lasted what seemed like minutes.

During these quakes I was careful to pay attention to everything I could, the noise, the movement of the ground beneath my feet and of the rattling of the buildings.

Plant Mold

Plant Mold

This is a Gerbera Daisy and it was suffering from mold on the leaves. I did some research online to figure out if there was a spray or something I could put on it. Sure enough there was, but what I also found intriguing was the suggestion of figuring out why the leaves are getting moldy in the first place.
