Six hundred earthquakes rocked Oklahoma County last year. If you think that’s a lot, you’d be right: That marks an increase from 37 felt earthquakes reported in 2008 and 2009, and only seven from 1987 to 2007.

While summer is still a scorching celebration, try treating yourself to a
decadent soda. Curious cream sodas, spicy ginger ales, rich root beers,

Tommy Lee Jones, not exactly stretching), Kay feels more like a
roommate than a wife. They don't even share a bedroom any more.
