1964 JC Penny's, originally uploaded by AnnaleeBlysse. A scanned image that my late step grandfather took of damage to the at that time new JC Penny's store in Anchorage, Alaska during the aftermath of the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake. My aunt worked for Penny's when she was young and was just walking out of the store when the massive earthquake hit. As you can see, concrete slabs were falling off the building around her. She survived but witness tragedy and that stayed with her the rest of her life.
Asko Design and Carl Watkins Salon, originally uploaded by Hib1. I was wandering around from the Flickr blog a bit today to look at some photos people have been taking around Christchurch, New Zealand after the massive 7.1 earthquake. Amazing that a huge plate glass window survived with so much other damage. This photographer explains the quake stopped the clock. I see via news sources on Internet you're all still feeling aftershocks. Take care Kiwis.

I watched the movie today for the first time. I recall watching an old movie at Amelia Earhart when I was a kid and finding it moving. This version with Hillary Swank playing the aviatrix was also interesting. It saddens me to be reminded at the difference between the heroines my grandmother's generation compared to what the youngsters these days see in the media. Today, the entire media applauds the biggest nitwits they can find and create stars out of women with no talent. Today, the mainstream media demeans conservative women of power. FOX may not work as hard at demeaning liberal women, but at least Katie Couric doesn't have the camera sweep in front of her glass top desk so she can have the male audience refocus on her legs every minute and a half.
