Some topics in random vibration of structures are reviewed. For this occasion three topics are chosen: (a) effect of cross correlations in linear vibration of continuous structures, (b) effect of choice of deterministic theory describing the dynamic behavior of the structure, (c) new versions of stochastic linearization of nonlinear continuous structures. The essay attempts to partially answer a familiar but still nagging question “Now that I’m here, where am I?
