  1. Hi this is Cassandra with your wake-up call.

    We are living in an active geological time frame. One poster last year said he got in touch with the appropriate Spanish government dept who assured him that everything was fine – oh that’s alright then LOL.

    Most mountain ranges are created when tectonic plates collide and one loses aka the Sierra Nevada. Fact these mountains are growing and this only happens by violent tectonic collision.

  2. Nothing was felt in Martos or Fuensanta de Martos but that´s getting a little close to home.

    My old plaster and stone house won´t take much shaking down.

  3. ” LOL. This is the daddy of them all. In the last decade it has effortlessly overtaken “The cheque’s in the post” and “I love you” as the most-often-told lie in human history. Out loud? Really? And, to complicate things, people are now saying LOL out loud, which is especially banjaxing since you can’t simultaneously say “LOL” and laugh aloud unless you can laugh through your arse.”
