Not sure why I doubt myself when this happens.


Was that about 10 years ago ?

I can't remember exactly but it was a fair few years ago.
It was also in the early hours of the morning perhaps 1 or 2 am?

One of my claims to fame is that I've slept through three earthquakes.
1. About 35 years ago when I lived on the borders of Wales.
2. 1984 in Sorrento... close to Vesuvius
3. About five years ago (ish?) here in West Yorkshire... I slept through the earthquake but was woken up by Mrs Trueno shrieking that the house was about to fall down.

Sounds like the 2008 5.2 magnitude quake , the epicentre was near Market Rasen in Lincolnshire - happened about 1 am

I am beside myself with admiration. Is she a proper Yorkshire lass by any chance? (Hope Mrs Trueno doesn't read this or I'm toast)

No... but she is a proper Yorkshire lass... she says what she likes and she likes what she bloody well says.
And she drinks Timmy Taylors from a pint glass.

As a Celtic mutt, I have learned that England has The National Autistic Society (NAS), Wales has NAS and Autism Cymru, Scotland has NAS and Scottish Autism, Ireland has Autism Ireland and the Isle of Mann has Autism in Mann.

My favorite, though, is I Am Me Scotland, an autism hate-crime advocacy group. Its law-enforcement and governmental connections are "more than a wee bit amazin'."

It is interesting to me that British and Irish autism groups seem to be significantly more political than many of their American counterparts which are still stuck in research and apologia. Yes, American autists have the Autistic Self Advocacy Network and autistic leaders like Temple Grandin and Jim Sinclair, but such groups seem light years ahead of American groups.

I'm in Lincolnshire and I slept through this, didn't know a thing till I came into town in the morning and lots of the Victorian houses had lost their chimneys.

I slept through the storm in 87 as well.

I wasn't asleep at 2.30pm today but I didn't know a thing about it until I read it here.

Yeah I remember the 87 storm - think I slept through that one actually.

I don't think you would have felt today's quake as it was quite subtle - my friend was sat in my front room with me didn't feel it, she just heard the bookcase creak. It was a slight rumble under my bottom so could have been a number of things - I doubted it at first.
