Napa Earthquake ~ 360º Paris View ~ Slow Cooker Bacon Ranch Chicken Pasta ~ Edda GloW John ~ Cat Wants In

Good 52º morning. Got to the high 80ºs yesterday.
Around 3am a 6.0 quake struck north of San Francisco.
Here are pictures of damage to buildings in Napa...

My friend Linda's son and family live there so have an email in to her to find out how they are. If the email doesn't work, a phone call a little later this morning. Apparently the hospital in Napa is treating 70 people for injuries. 36 after-shocks...... Power outages throughout the whole area...

Here is a really neat 360º view of Paris France from the top of the Eiffel Tower.... sent to me from George Collins (LASD ret) Thanks George!
Betty Crocker has again tested the limits of my drool button! This sound sooooooooooooo good I can't wait to try it.

Mt. Vesuvius Day

Vesuvius Day marks the date in 79 A.D. that Mount Vesuvius exploded.
August 24, 79 A.D. was an historic date for the world. This was the day that Mount Vesuvius erupted in a huge explosion. It was one of the largest volcanic explosions in recorded history.
This deadly volcano destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae. They were buried by volcanic ash and pumice. An estimated 3,360 people died in the volcano's eruption.

Mount Vesuvius also exploded a second time in 1631. At that time, it killed approximately 3,500 people.
