Tsunami ~ Chicken Broccoli Casserole ~ VPike

Good 35º foggy morning.
The earthquake in Japan... so devastating. Now a tsunami warning for Crescent City and the Oregon Coast and No. Cal Coastal cities. Not good in Hawaii and Philippines either. Stand by...
Here are some road cam pictures of the coast here in Oregon...Highway 101 has been closed completely. Regular TV programming has been preempted for the continuing news.
Historically this date...

 and today is my friend JoanP's birthday. She is my cruising buddy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOAN!! Hope you do something fun!

This is really fun... I bet you can't stop playing with it. See a picture of where you grew up. Check out some of your old "haunts". When you enter an address you will see a picture of the place. There is a little map with a man on it .. you cam move the man up or down the street. Use the N on the direction circle to look around.
My old high school.... good old Woodrow Wilson which is now
El Sereno Middle School.
Patty gave me some broccoli casserole she had made. I heated it up last night. OMG, GOOD!!!

1 can mushroom soup
1 cup mayonnaise
1 med onion - chopped
2 eggs - well beaten
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 cups buttered bread crumbs
1-3 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
Cook broccoli as directed, drain. Add soup, mayo, chicken, onions, nuts, eggs. Pour into 2 qt casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese and top with bread crumbs. Bake uncovered 30 min at 350º. 
Yesterday about 5pm the sky was ominous....
so we had a snuggy fire....
The chatter re the tsunami is getting more and more. Waves hitting San Francisco Bay. Big ones on our coast now. The pictures from Japan show the horror. So sad.
All I know. Going to have a cup of coffee and watch the news. My new printer showed up so will set that up today.
Ciao. Happy Friday.
