Salinas, Calif. — A moderate earthquake and minor aftershocks jolted the central California coast over the weekend but didn't cause any damage, authorities said.
Nearly 6,700 people reported feeling the magnitude 5.3-quake when it struck late Saturday outside of King City, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its website.
USGS geophysicist Don Blakeman said the temblor struck in a "seismically active area" near the San Andreas Fault, about 90 miles southeast of San Jose. It was followed by at least four aftershocks that were greater than magnitude 2.5.

Tammy, Del, did you feel this????

This from John 'Teddy Bear' Thurman. Thanks for the laugh John!!

I did heat the leftover quinoa/rice mixture and have it with some seared white fish. Topped with a mixture of Tabasco Spicy Mayonnaise and honey mustard sauce. Mmmmm!!!

Yesterday I found a large container of chicken stock with carrots in the freezer, thawed it and put it the slow cooker. Added broccoli slaw, broccoli, red bell pepper, mushrooms, tossed in some quinoa, and cooked pasta bows. Boy, that was good too!! Soup sure hits the spot this time of year!

I watched my Pats and Kristen's/Olga's Jets battle it out on the football field. WOW. What a game! It wore me out!!!
