The April 18, 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, estimated at 7.9 magnitude, was one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, claiming more than 3,000 lives. Congress responded to the disaster in several ways. The House and the Senate Appropriations Committees enacted emergency appropriations. Other congressional action included the House Claims Committee handling claims from owners seeking reimbursement for destroyed property. The Senate also passed a resolution asking the Secretary of War to furnish the Senate with a copy of a report on the earthquake and fire. The report on the relief efforts and accompanying captioned photographs, prepared by the U.S. Army, are now housed with the records of the Senate Committee on Printing and include the above photos.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN, THE FLIGHT’S CANCELLED?

Lol. I hope someone would send me this postcard…Anyway, I am feeling grumpy but it’s because my frickin’ calves are sore from doing jumping exercises. I haven’t been jump roping and whenever I start up again, I want to just sit for 2 weeks “recovering.” Stupid muscles.Did start swimming again this week so that makes me happier. :)Anyway, we get tomorrow off so I am going to start my day with martial arts mayhem by watching the Raid 2. I hope. I hope it’s still in the theaters…I will probably go run or something since I have put myself on a schedule. Anyway, I feel like I just am babbling about nothing. I can’t wait for summer!

oswinstark asked: I'm working on a film set and we're at Albuquerque Studios and apparently some of Avengers was filmed here and now I'm super stoked and I wanted to share my excitement with you.

agentmlovestacos:

Yup! I remember visiting the set and hanging out in New Mexico for a few days. That was the first time I met Clark Gregg. He was super fun. Ended up joining our giant group for dinner and hanging out for hours. Neat little town down there.

A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!
