Gather News has this video of hailstorm in Oklahoma:


Katla

The Clare Herald has this video:

This morning Katla, has had another Quake measuring about a 3.0.

Katla

Lots of news about Katla, the volcano in Iceland whose eruption could be an order of magnitude greater than Eyjafjallajökull.

There was a powerful earthquake today, “a magnitude 6.0 earthquake along the Northern Mid-Atlantic ridge. The relatively powerful, and fairly shallow quake struck in mid-ocean approximately 325 miles southwest of the Portuguese Azores Islands.” Why is that important? The quake was on the Mid-Atlantic ridge, the south end is anchored in the Haiti and Caribbean area and the north end is splitting Iceland apart.  The red arrow marks the today’s 6.0 quake.

There’s some concern that an eruption of Katla would harm our food supplies. An article on the Financial Press Trading Desk. China has purchased corn from the U.S. for the first time since 1996, anywhere from 484,000 to 825,000 tonnes. China is experiencing delays in corn planting due to cold and wet weather. “…the Chinese government has had to dip into its stockpiles to sell 5.6 million tonnes of the grain in an effort to keep prices lower.”

Sam Kanes of Scottia Capital notes that in the last thousand years, the three times Eyjafjallajokull “erupted it has also triggered an eruption from its big brother, Katla.” A Katla eruption could severely impact global weather patterns and could lead to global food shortages.  One positive note; Eyjafjallajokul is still erupting.  Katla traditionally does not erupt until Eyjafjallajokul stops.

Watching Katla

In case you missed his comment, Andrew Held let us know that there is some concern about the recent quakes at Katla, the Iceland volcano that always erupts when Eyjafjallajokull becomes active.

Who’s “Doing It?”

I’m reading newly arrived “Supreme Justice:A Novel of Suspence” by Philip Margolin.  At one point, Ginny Striker,  the fiance of the lead character Brad Miller, says “She would have given anything to be in her pajamas, snuggling on the couch with the man she loved while they watched a great old movie on the Turner Classics station.”

He had other things in mind since they hadn’ been together lately!

How great of a writer is Margolin?  Thursday May 20th, CBS had a story from  iVillage about a study of the sex-lives of 2000 women between the ages of 18 and 49.  “The most alarming finding was that 77 percent reported being ‘somewhat to extremely happy’ with their sex life, but 63 percent of them would rather sleep, watch a movie or read than have sex.”

Many want us to believe they are “doing it” three times a week.  Some even say every day!  I suspect there are a whole lot of unsatisfied men who are doing it once a month and feel lucky that they are not the poor SOBs doing it once a year.
