    By Michelle Roberts, Associated Press Writer – SAN ANTONIO – Residents of 25 homes evacuated after a landslide split a retaining wall and threatened to topple hilltop homes will not be allowed to return for at least 10 days as engineers watch for further soil movement, the developer said Tuesday.

    As Taj Mahal said to his audience, "Goin' to put some shake in yo' shaker, some quake in yo' Quaker."

    Incidentally the stone tower shown in my avatar picture was built in the 12th century, and too involved retained fill for some of its foundation.
