THE WITCHING HOUR EARTHQUAKE IN THE NAPA VALLEY

A 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit the northern San Francisco Bay area early Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Twitter lit up with images of people’s wine collections broken on kitchen floors, but there does not appear to be much more damages than that.. Extensive kitchen appliances hit, but buildings remain intact—compared to what could have been, the Napa valley (wine central) can count itself lucky.

No reports of injuries…
Some power outages--42,000 people in the immediate aftermath of the quake..

But lots of jittery people being woken up at the witching hour. 3:20am on the left coast.

And perhaps a lesson and reminder of fright to come. There is always the chance of a big quake hitting. With such fault tension lately, the pressure needs to release somewhere..

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
