Mr. Koko and I are in Winnipeg, and like to take little weekend trips to anyplace within a day's drive. Neither of us have explored Fargo or Minneapolis, so I thought we'd hit both in one long weekend. I'm looking for one or two highlights for each place. [more inside]
This is likely a dumb question. :) But I have this little microwave. Both the glass turntable and the plastic wheel thing are broken. The microwave itself works fine and heats things up. Short of dripping stuff down into the motor enclosure where the wheel+turntable would normally sit, can I use this microwave normally long-term with no worries? I'm assuming that the only difference is the food would be unevenly heated (I could manually turn), but I just wanted to make sure the turntable motor business wasn't connected to anything else. Replacements would cost more than the microwave at this point.

I live in northern Virginia, however all of my family lives in the Los Angeles area. At work, I have to keep my web browsing to a bare minimum and restricted to my lunch break. As such, I'm worried about the Big One hitting the LA area, and not knowing about it ASAP, especially if LA's phone lines and cell towers get knocked out. Is there any way I could arrange for a text message to be sent to my cellphone, for every earthquake that hits the LA Basin? I realize this may turn out to be excessive, but am willing to experiment.
