Glad you and Kathy are okay. I remember your fish room will from your kindly
allowing me to visit a couple of years ago.

I remember when a 5.4  (epicenter over the hill from us off Bolinas) hit
here just as I was changing water a couple of years ago. I had just anchored
my tanks to studs in the house a month earlier. Water sloshed about, but
nothing other than that. A good warning to all of us in earthquake
country... make sure your tanks are properly anchored.

Once again, glad to hear all is okay with you guys.
