Thanks Perry - I was wondering about the stability of the foundations of homes that have already been through several earthquakes. I guess the home inspectors out there will fill us in?

Lol ... it's pretty difficult to get a CCW in California.
You'll be just fine in Culver City ... don't worry.
Check out this dude's "30 Culver City Secrets" for some semi-interesting tidbits on its history:

I have been visiting family several times a year for the past 10 years in SoCal and now I am moving there. I never experienced an earthquake in all that time so I am not too worried. The only time I ever experienced an earthquake was right here in West Va and was that ever a surprise!

Correction: It's impossible to get one in LA County.

And what is it that the OP's supposed to glean about CC from this website?

Don't put heavy objects on high shelves. Bookcases, entertainment units, and televisions should be properly bolted. Water heaters are strapped, but it will already be that way and you won't need to worry about it. Most houses will be fine during an earthquake, but things will move - and you don't want anyone getting hit by them.

Know where and how to shut off the gas in case of a leak, and know where the tool is.

Do not run out of a building during an earthquake! Do a little research on the best place to be during an earthquake. Actually, you want the best kind of place - not a particular place - because during an earthquake you shouldn't be running around. Sometimes just ask yourself, "If there were an earthquake now, what would I do?" Teach your children earthquake safety, and if they are old enough, show them how to shut off the gas. (Don't actually shut it off, though, unless there is a leak.)

Once you know what to do, you can stop worrying about it.

Yes, they'll be able to tell you. Ever since 1994 earthquake, the county has taken building stability more seriously, so it won't be hard to get informed.
