In the News Today . . .

Today's excitement is an earthquake in the midwest, a 5.2 shaker centered down around West Salem, Illinois.

We don't get them too often, so when we do it's big news, even if it isn't a particularly big quake.

We would have slept right through the whole thing except for our new dog, a 2 year old yellow lab/collie mix named Jasmine, who suddenly started barking about the time the quake was happening. We shushed her, so she came over to my side of the bed and alternated between putting her face on my pillow and licking my hand. Every few moments she added a soft whine.

We assumed she was just antsy about some wayward animal in the yard, but what do we know?

Apparently not quite as much as Jasmine . . .
