Virtual Property

ImageRule of thumb, don’t buy any virtual properties. You don’t really own it. It belongs to the game or the website you purchased it from. The game or website have power over the object, perk, gear, pet, picture, mount. The virtual object can be changed how it appears or taken away altogether by the web site or original owner. These are ruses to get you to spend money. You are not getting good value. The courts are trying to set up laws regarding virtual property.

Tremulous

Image

West coast of British Columbia Canada is part of the ring of fire. A major earthquake can happen any time.  Are we ready. NOT!  This part of the world has a major plate and pressure release system for the earths crust.  We are fortunate that most of the quakes are out at sea under the water or near un populated areas. Yes we have Tsunami sirens that warns everyone to get to higher ground.  We have had inland quakes but in my life time there have only been a couple that have been notable.  We get tremors quite frequently and mostly go unnoticed by the population as we are use to them.

A 7.7 earthquake rocked Haida Gwaii in October 2012, the strongest recorded in Canada since an 8.1 shaker hit the same area in 1949, but no damage was reported.

Evacuation kit (grab-and-go kit)

Every person in your family should have their own customized evacuation kit at home, in their car and at work. Keep the kits by the front door, in the trunk, where they will be easy to find if you need to evacuate quickly.

  • Think about being prepared
  • Make sure your family and friends know your plan
  • Contact your children’s school or daycare to find out their plans for evacuation
  • Gather items to grab in an emergency. Back pack is the best solution to store items.
  • If you are not prepared at least grab a blanket to stay warm.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Stay calm
  • Deal with it

Discuss your plans with your friends and family in case of a disaster.  The more you know about your friends and families plans the easier it will be to find them when disaster strikes.  Plan what you will do and where you will go.  Try and cover all possibilities and time frames.  Parents who work need to find out what plans their children’s school or daycare have in order to find their children. It will be back to nature until things calm down so learning how to camp and survive is not a bad idea.  Above all don’t panic and remain calm.  It happened and now deal with it.

Walk softly upon the earth. Go quietly into the night. Take care.
