"The San Francisco Mint produced fewer than 300 special edition $5 coins, and it was thought that only three survived.
The anonymous owner of the discovered fourth coin believed the piece to be fake, as did multiple coin dealers."
" 'We try not to go three weeks without seeing each other, but it can sometimes be four or five weeks.'OK, she's young and hot, but maybe she can live with that arrangement.
While she felt her husband's absence at her fashion show, the beauty added that she still has no set plans to move to Los Angeles, although she loves the lifestyle in the States."

"The Hayward fault is so dangerous because it runs through some of the most heavily populated areas in the San Francisco Bay Area, spanning the length of the East Bay from the San Pablo Bay, through Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward, Fremont and into Milpitas. It is one of the most dangerous faults in the nation "because of the density of the population directly on or astride it, which would include San Francisco, and the amount of infrastructure that crosses it," [USGS earthquake geologist emeritus David] Schwartz said."
"The asteroid, designated 2018 GE3, made its closest approach to Earth at around 2:41 a.m. EDT (0641 GMT), whizzing by at a distance of 119,400 miles (192,000 kilometers), or about half the average distance between Earth and the moon, according to NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS)."According to the article, the estimated size means that if it encountered Earth, it would cause regional, but not global, damage. Which is fine unless your region is Ground Zero for the space rock.
"1980 (station established 1915). Active; two white flashes every 10 s. Approx. 15 m (50 ft) octagonal concrete tower with gallery rising from the center of an octagonal concrete keeper's house. It appears that the lantern has been removed and replaced by a light on a short mast. ... The lighthouse is on South Tubbataha."This lighthouse does have a keeper's house, as it says, but living here would be right out of "what would you bring to do if you were going to live on a desert island"? Lots of time for introspection, and waiting for the next supply boat.

"1910. Active; focal plane 46 m (151 ft); two white flashes every 10 s; there is also a continuous red passing light at a focal plane of 30 m (98 ft). 30 m (98 ft) masonry tower with lantern and gallery. Lighthouse painted white with two red horizontal bands."And just like last week, three pictures and a video:
1865. Inactive for many years. 26 m (85 ft) masonry tower with lantern and gallery, attached to a 2-story and 1-story keeper's complex.That's pretty much it. Below are three pictures and a short video.
“You’re a racist!” a young man yelled from the cheap seats.Still such a likable and polite lady. Really.
“No, I’m sorry, the people bringing in Juanita, the maid, and underpaying her, are the racists,” Coulter shot back. “You are a moron!” she added—prompting a burst of applause. “You’re very stupid. I can’t argue with stupid people.”
"According to produce industry trade publication The Packer, avocado crops in California, Mexico, and Peru are expected to be "heavy" this year—at least partially due to the fact that they're an "alternate-bearing fruit," meaning that it's normal for crops to be heavier one year and lighter the next. 2017 was an "off" year with considerably smaller crops, but this year, US avocado volume is expected to reach 2.4 billion pounds—300 million more than 2017, according to Emiliano Escobedo, executive director of the Hass Avocado Board."Well, good, that's one less thing to worry about.
