We didn't feel any thing over here, but I wondered if any of you over to the West had noticed it?

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Odd that it says Caen as we are between Caen and Rennes and did not feel a thing!

Re: Earthquake

Yes Norman we certainly felt it yesterday. It was about 8am when at first I thought it was very loud thunder, and then an almighty shuddering, I initially thought that a lorry had driven into the house, it was that strong. The whole thing was over in less than 5 seconds. It must be very frightening if you live somewhere where 'real' earthquakes take place.

I then read the article that you linked, in The Independent yesterday afternoon, before I read your post, and was totally flabbergasted to read that the epicentre was as they put it, in a town called Bressuire. We are only about 15 kms from Bressuire, where we are going tonight, so I will look out for any damage.
