Under the Radar

Since the Japan earthquake on March 11, there has been an increase in seismic activity around the world. You can see increased activity in Alaska, California, Arkansas, and Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico, my Puerto Rico, which clear across the planet, is showing signs of increased activity. Uh oh!
Why isn't anybody reporting this? Clearly it has to do with our sources. La Red Sismica, or the Seismic Network in Puerto Rico only reports earthquakes that are above a certain level. I am never sure about their cutoff criteria, but if I am covering an area, and I have the information, I would want to let others know. Fortunately, if it is newsworthy the USGS does.

This past week, the Puerto Rico area has experienced more than ten small earthquakes ranging from 2.6 and above. Today alone, we have had four small ones. I am going to keep my eyes open!

Would love to see some new ones. Aren't these gorgeous?

Japanese Christians... God's hands and feet

Japanese Christians on fire for the Lord. Watch this beautiful video by clicking on the link.

One More Thing for Which to Watch

Our weight
What we eat
Our steps
The stop sign
The speed limit
The dotted line
The clock
Our belt line
Our balance
Our posture
The scale
and again the money in our wallets...
It could be counterfeit!

I had no idea so much of it was in circulation. According to the an article on there is more than 1.4 million of it in circulation in Florida alone!! Oh no... so what can we do so we don't fall victim? Here's a link to US Secret Service and they have their tips. In the WESH article it says that it doesn't feel right. Get to know the real thing is what my first Pastor, Mr. Brenneman, would say. That is what the secret service would say. Know the real thing so you won't be fooled. If you accept a false bill you are the one stuck with it since there is no place to get a refund. So add that to your list, keep an eye open for counterfeit bills. May your wallet never hold any!

Best time of the Year

65 degrees in the morning. Refreshing and energizing to go to work with my windows down and listening to the birds sing happily. Once at school to walk through the open courtyard with such beautiful weather is a delight. Then in the afternoon 81 degrees with a nice breeze going through my sunroof and endless blue sky. You just want to pull out a hammock and relax. So though I do not have a place yet to hang my hammock, I am going to make a nice ice tea and enjoy this perfect weather. You should, too!
