Today's picture shows California Street in San Francisco after the earthquake. The Great Merchant's Exchange is on the left, and the Fairmount Hotel is in the distance. I find it interesting that even with the disaster, people are still dressing nicely. I would have thought they would have just had "Jeans Week" or something like that.
I enjoyed reading the comments yesterday, and I am sensing a clear consensus developing that I need a tractor. Several pointed out that with a tractor, I would be able to get a garden put together. In times of disaster, we could eat produce from the garden. Mrs. PJM has grown quiet fond of the chickens, and this plan has the advantage that the chickens do not get eaten in the first week of the crisis. I feel we finally have a scenario that might actually work, as far as me getting a tractor.
