Magnitude 7.0 and Tsunami Warning

06/14/05 | by Clarise | Categories: In real life

A friend of mine called around 8 PM tonight concerned about me. I live by the ocean. There was a tsunami warning which was briefly in effect from the California-Mexico border all the way north to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. There was a 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck at about 7:50 p.m, by the Coast of Northern California, 91 miles, WSW (252°) from Crescent City, CA. I assured my friend that Crescent is far away from where I live. Crescent is about 20 miles south of the Oregon border and 300 miles away from San Francisco.

The tsunami warning was called off an hour after the earthquake. So, to all of you concerned about me (and Joseph), I am (we are) fine and the waves seem to be behaving. :) Thank you for all your concern.


The 2000 Year Old Seed

06/12/05 | by Clarise | Categories: In real life, On the web

A seed, confirmed by carbon dating to be 2000 years old grows into a plant. This is just amazing ... that is what I said to myself when I read this article by the San Francisco Chronicle: Seed of Extinct Date Palm Sprouts After 2,000 Years.

When I was a child, the seed growing into a plant was always used as a simile for me. I was always told that one's potential is like a seed. With nurture, the seed grows and blossoms into a plant or even a majestic tree. After reading this article, I could almost hear my parents telling the seed simile to me. Then I thought, yes, even a seed that is extinct holds within it potential. &#59;D

Around July 11, hourly rates for parking meters in some parts of San Francisco will increase. According to the News, SF Supes Approve Parking Meter Hikes, hourly parking meter rates will go up as much as a dollar. Parking violation fees and residential parking permits are set to go up as well.


More Fashion Designs from Sophia

06/04/05 | by Clarise | Categories: In real life

It is nice to get real personal mail. Ordinarily, when I get my post office mail, all I get are bills and junk mail. This time, it was different. In a nice personal hand-made envelope, my 14 year-old niece Sophia mailed me some of her fashion design.

Similar to the time I posted Sophia's Design in my blog, Budding Fashion Designer, I am proud to show-off the new set of designs I got from her:
