Morning Coffee: I've got emergency preparedness on my mind

The huge earthquakes in Haiti and Chile should serve as a reminder to all Californians that we need to be prepared to deal with "the big one" too. Hopefully it won’t hit anytime soon, but you never know. And according to this article, the state as a whole is well prepared but individuals are not. Each of us has a responsibility to make sure we have enough food and water to survive for three to four days. I also recommend flashlights, extra batteries, a radio, and earthquake insurance. (Speaking of which, our premium went up 30% this year (!) – I’ve got an email in to our agent to find out why.) Find more tips here and here.

    For those that are considering the app, it does require an HP wireless printer to print the coupons, but it also has an option to email the coupons. I haven't tried the email option, but the coupons print with no problem to my wireless HP printer. I love being able to print extra coupons from my phone too.
