I got up at 7am this morning, it's almost 8am now. Missed feeling that one, I guess the mattress adjusted for it. Animals didn't run through the house or all jump in bed with us, so maybe it wasn't felt here too much. Nobody in house woke up, even though that's only about 30 miles away from me.

I felt an earthquake

here in the UK about two years ago. The epicenter was underneath a city some 50 miles away from us, and 20 miles down, apparently.

Late at night, approaching 1:00 am, and I had just gone to bed and was dozing off when I started shaking. I hadn't been drinking so I discounted that!

A second later I realised that it was my bed shaking, then another second later that it was my whole house shaking.

The general consensus is, I believe, to jump out of bed, run into the street shouting and screaming, before the house collapses on top of you.

Well that wasn't going to happen. It lasted 10 seconds and I was glued to the bed. By the time my brain told me what to do it was all over.

A strange feeling. If I had been fully asleep I wouldn't have noticed.

Doesn't need to be one of your own, you know. Happy

We had someone on a TV News report interviewed, some member of the public, who said, "What's the Government going to do about this??". Sigh!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
