Ditto on earthquakes, OT. If a quake isn't over 5, don't bother telling me. If it is, we should charge admition -- it's a definite E ticket ride.

Tornadoes don't worry me, in fact the idea of storm chasing sounds like a great vacation activity. (probably because I've never experienced one)

Super scary to me! :eek:
"Call the Richter" is a local game. Get an earthquake, call a number; then check the USGS earthquake map and see who guessed closest. I am routinely skunked by officemates from the SF Bay area, they have way more experience than we get down this end of the state.

Mudslides are usually in predictable areas. And they usually happen to people who choose to ignore geology when they choose a building site. Optimists, much?

I remember back in the 1980's a quake hit the NY area. It was about 4AM. Don't remember shaking but I do remember the sound was as if there were huge trucks rumbling through the street.

I guess you can get use to it.

My brother busted my chops on our birthday a few years ago and challenged me to go on those upside down roller coasters. I went as I had to accept the challenge (foolish me). I decided after almost losing my lunch that would be the last time I did that.

I like being on solid stable ground.

Well, we'll be in SD next weekend and I know for sure I'm going to the organ concert and will be checking out the beef ribs at Fat Ivor's. I would be honored to meet any of the Randomizers while I'm there and, if any of you are interested, I'll find a way of hooking up with you sometime on Sat or Sun. This thread has given me a lot of possible activities, and I think I can convince my wife (really won't take much convincing) to play hooky from the conference and go have some fun.

The only worthwhile thing I did when I was in San Diego was attending Marine Corps graduations. I wouldn't hesitate to go to another grad ceremony, even with all the "wonderful" memories of the weeks I spent on the Depot. It looks like you already have it planned out though, but that's my suggestion anyway.

Cheers!

Well, we finally have our itinery figured out, somewhat. Basically, we have all of Sunday, April 17, free, so if any of you folks in SD would like to meet up, just let me know by private message. We can do lunch, dinner or whatever. If I have a way of contacting you when I get there, we can work out details then. I will have a laptop with me so I can get you by pm, assuming the hotel connection works. We're staying at the Marriott near the Convention Center - which may mean something to you. The forecast for Sunday says 68 degrees and partly sunny, so that sounds good. Hope to see some of you on Sunday.

Hey Bones, so nice of you and the Mrs to come out for our anniversary!

We'll get back to you with our schedule for the day, and see if we can link up at any point.

GC just told me he thought that was your anniversary! I certainly would not expect you to interupt your first anniversary celebration. Maybe we could plan something for Monday. I'll see what what Monday looks like.

Don't worry, Bones, we wouldnt let you! :)

Whether we can hook up in the am depends mostly on OT's church choir commitments that morning.

Perhaps we can do a Mr. and mrs. Bones-meets-Random over lunch at an appropriate Mexican restaurant, followed by an organ concert at Balboa Park? The concerts run from 2 to 3pm.

I'll be stuck at church until ~11am, so if you all do a mornig something, I'll have to catch you later.

We must be sure and let Selma in on whatever we plan.

And then of course there's the ever elusive Flying Sorcery....

Casa de Bandini? El Indio? Rubio's? Porkyland? Los Quatros Milpas? Mexican Village (over in Coronado)? One of the El Torito's?

Is there any extra special mex food near or in Balboa Park? Getting in early helps with parking.

(WHY doesnt the trolley go to Balboa Park? How insane is that? 2 stops - one at the zoo and one down by the aerospace museum. Sheesh!)

I think Casa de Bandini would be a sufficiently tourista venue, and the food is worth eating.
Do they take reservations?
If so, that would be my vote.

I should be able to make the Organ Recital. I have commitments at church till 1.00, so unless parking is horrific at Balboa, I can get there. I agree on the trolley, if they want people to ride it, it has to go to more places. (I'll be zooooming in from East County) Hopefully I can drag daughter #2 with me -- she's the piano player and would enjoy the concert.

SF, how cool!

How about Casa Fandango? Its right next to Bandini, and is also very good. Besides, has anyone eaten at Bandini since it got new owners?

[no shame] With regards to Casa de Bandini, I'll try calling and begging. [/no shame] Thanks for checking, Selma.

Hi FS, we'll save spaces(2,3,....7?) for you at the organ concert, if nothing else. We'll have Altoid in the pram, so we should be easy to find.
