I could even recognize some places that I have been to. It didn’t take me long to ask the owner’s permission to share Biddy on my blog for all you guys to see this little guy adventuring and enjoying himself tremendously.

Photo of the Day: Wildflowers at Mt St Helens by Kevin McNeal

This week has been pretty uneventful for me, however it seems like it’s earthquake season: Japan, California, Chile, Nicaragua, and now Mexico. This morning Mexico experienced a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that was centered near Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for Easter holiday including some of my family members. It was felt in at least 6 states including Mexico City which is always vulnerable to distant earthquakes because much of it sits atop the muddy sediments of drained lake beds that quiver as quake waves hit. The magnitude-8.1 quake in 1985 that killed at least 6,000 people and destroyed many buildings in Mexico City was centered 250 miles (400 kilometers) away on the Pacific Coast.
