    Tokyo Quake -- how you doing, Stu?

    Just reading that there was a magnitute 6.0 quake in Tokyo today...

    You guys really know how to build over there --- it is a magnitude 6, with the strongest shaking centred on Tokyo, yet the news states "no initial reports of major damage"

    Hope you didn't get too much breakage at the L-shop, Stu.
    best wishes

    It was at 5:18 AM, jolted us out of bed, and it shook for a long time, in fact there were two strong quakes, at 5:18 and then at 5:23 it just went on and on. We are on the 7th floor of our building and boy it shook, not as bad as March 11th a few years ago, not nearly as bad, but boy it shook.

    Everything is fine

    Does that mean that the Ablett designed wine shelves in the L-store held everything? Those shelves are sure clever, but how about the stock not on your custom shelves? How is everything in the Dungeon?

    Everything is fine, not one bottle busted, the Dungeon though, it looks like it was hit with a massive quake..... but it looked like that yesterday too!

    I have too much stuff going on all at once, and only so many hours in the day....
