    Earthquake in central Italy

    Condolences going out to central Italy after their earthquake. Looks like it was some distance away from Rome, but that is no consolation for the families where it did hit.

    Caesar, where are you? Don't you have some connection with a vineyard or whatever east closer to the area that got hit? Hope it was nowhere near you. It's been a while but you tend to run off on holiday for long periods of time. Hope all's well.

    Andrea? You okay? Silvie?

    Hello my friend, thank you so much for your concern, I'm spending the holidays in Liguria, I'm OK, Caesar as you know is from Rome and I think he uses to spend his holidays in Sardinia, I don't know about Silvie, hope she's OK too. Unfortunately our Bel Paese is plagued by earthquakes and our buildings are mostly old, if memory serves me right you're from California so certainly know how nature can be unforgiving... ciao

    I'm relieved to hear you are alright, though I'm more than a little jealous that you are vacationing in Liguria. . . and I'm not.

    Clink some glasses for me with a toast to your continued good health and that of your family.

    Yes, I'm from California and live roughly within a few miles of Northridge (epicenter of the 1989 quake). At the time I lived a bit farther away but where I was living still had some neighboring apartment houses a couple miles away lose their walls and when I drove around I saw some beds dangling from the second story and a lot of people moving out owing to structural damage. But it could have been a whole lot worse with much older structures as you can imagine from what happened in your beautiful country.

    Stay well.

    And shouldn't you be painting? Seems like with being in such a beautiful place you have ample inspiration. - Ciao!

    Thank you Dear D hope you and your beloved ones are well too. I remember the first day I was in school in Claremont they told us the procedures in case of Earthquake and teachers used to make jokes about the "Big One", it's a thing you have to live with so exorcising it is a good thing. Eheh I'll drink some wine on you and you will eat some tacos on me is that right? ☺. I'm exercicing with Sargeant as soon as finished I'll post the outcomes 😊. Ciao and stay well!
