And it’s been snowing all day in Ashland, Oregon,
and across Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.

The rain has passed
So goes winter in L.A.
And here comes the Sun!

TBT: ThrowbackThursday (still true today)

The Emancipation Proclamation (Proclamation 95),
was signed by President Abraham Lincoln on September 22, 1862,
and put into effect on January 1, 1863:
“That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom….”
All slaves held within the 10 states not under Union control were declared to be FREE!
The original five page document of the Emancipation Proclamation
is in the National Archives of the United States in Washington, DC.

January 17 is the Anniversary of the 1994 Northridge Earthquake

26 years ago, on 1-17-94, we woke up in the dark at 4:30am to the 6.7 Northridge Earthquake shaking the bed and the sound of things falling! As we opened our eyes, the TV fell off the stand in the bedroom with a crash and the sound of glass breaking could be heard as things fell out of cabinets in the kitchen of our 4th floor apartment. Damage at home was pretty minimal and we had earthquake insurance that covered most of it! Our storage unit in Northridge was another story however (yellow tagged and closed for repairs for a year), and then we had to rescue our Grandmother (of blessed memory) who was trapped in her damaged condominium in Sherman Oaks.
