Magnitude 6.4 earthquake in Hokkaido, Japan

Just a few of minutes ago, there was a Magnitude 6.4 earthquake in the southeastern part of Japan's northernmost main island of Hokkaido. I am five or six hundred miles away from the epicenter, but I felt it. In fact, the quake was felt in all of eastern Japan. Near the epicenter, it registered a 5+ on the Japanese seismic intensity scale, meaning there was a chance of moderate damage.

2. I just threw some beans out the front door

to bring in good luck and expel bad luck. I hope that will help keep the earthquakes at bay

4. No earthquakes so far today

Maybe the beans are working

I also picked up a package of the roasted beans today. They are a very good low-calorie snack
