Today is the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake. Giants were in the World Series then (and the A's), just as they are now. Where were you when it happened?
Check out this nerve wracking clip from that broadcast: http://youtu.be/Z8ExMR0c0aM?t=
And more importantly, are you prepared for the next one?

I know I will be one to get my flu shot today and I hope others come by to receive theirs..please note that just because I will be there doesn't mean everyone can line up to poke the Sheriff."

Brickmaiden Bread, a local company run by Celine Underwood, just launched an amazing Kickstarter campaign to upgrade their oven. The 'rewards' for supporting the cause are incredible. They're also having a party today from 4pm - 8pm at their bakery in downtown Point Reyes (by the Commons) to celebrate. Food, drink and oysters! Be sure to check out the campaign and the party!!!!https://www.kickstarter.com/pr

The SF Chronicle weighs in on the elk issue. "But there isn’t much celebrating going on in the picturesque hills, where elk can regularly be seen loping proudly through pastures that seven organic dairies use for their cattle. The wild elk and domestic cows simply do not mix, according to the ranchers who lease the fields from the National Park Service, which administers 28,000 acres of agricultural land in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Point Reyes seashore. The ranchers say the competition from the elk for scarce vegetation threatens their very existence after three years of drought."http://www.sfgate.com/science/

Two local surfers on their stand up paddle boards had a 'very large' Great White Shark swim under them out at Drake's Bay this weekend. It's that time of the year. I've also heard that the local shark researchers have spotted lots of Great Whites outside the mouth of Tomales Bay as well. Geepers.
