Shaken, not stirred

| Sunday being Easter, the Brunch Bunch opted to forgo a restaurant and convene Chez Paul. As usual, it would be pot luck.

Sometimes our brunches do go on … and on …. This one went on well into the afternoon, so long in fact that we were all still sitting around the table enjoying our last bottle of champagne when the shaking from Sunday's 7.2 earthquake in Baja California hit.

The shaking wasn't particularly violent, but it lasted a long time — some of us think it was about 30 seconds, others think it was an eternity.
