You wrote: "But the strange part, is I have never heard of one earthquake in that area." Well, it's coming. The "New Madrid" fault (in Missouri) is going to pop someday. I felt it (a small one, about a 3.0) when I was in Quincy, IL in late 1968 or early 1969. The geological record indicates that there was a BIG one (8.0?) on the 'New Madrid' fault about 350 years ago. In '68 or '69 they said that the one 350 years ago (a) moved the Mississippi and (b) if it happened then ('68-'69) that there would not be a stone left upon a stone in St. Louis. St Louis then began to implement appropriate seismic standards in new construction. When I moved out here I took a 'History of California' course and the instructor said that some of the Indian dialects were similar to those in the Midwest. I figured that the Midwest Indians packed up after that big one.

I retired from the State in 2012 and the National Guard in 2014 but at 60 I'm still working in Taylorville. How long before you can retire?

These new points give you a lot of opportunities to make points. It seems that iphone users have an advantage over just PC posters. I'll take advantage of it while it lasts. I'll knock them down so stay close behind. Hope all is well with you.

Yes I agree the dissemination of the changes was poor. The playing is not level, you are right.

Are you watching the videos on the website under the Points & Prizes tab and Video Points? Another GasBuddy pointed out that you would watch them there for 1,000 points per day like the iphone users.

by ILANGE9  Mar 30, 2015

Yes that's right. I get to watch the vidoes for an extra 1,000 points per day. Don't think its fair for those that don't have one.
