Just becaue YOU have never heard of him, doesn't mean nobody else has... That's rather a gratuitous sweeping statement...

Adieu Johnny - part of my youth has disappeared.

I always thought Emperors were the "head" of the country, surely he should be able to choose for himself when to retire ?

That's why I'm sticking to my Toyota Auris... (although my son says it would be cheaper to run a smaller K-car...)

I was stung by one recently... Luckily only one though ! Nasty creatures... The "sting" lasted a long time and I still have the "scar"... Poor old lady, I know what one feels like - being stung by so many, how she must've suffered...

Posted in: Kumamoto memento See in context

They have certainly had more than their fair share of catastrophes in Kumamoto... and they're still being battered by the elements... They should adopt the Paris motto : "Il est battu par les vagues mais ne sombre pas..." (Rough translation : "Battered by the waves, she doesn't sink")

My dog NEVER pooped on the pavements, only on the earth in the parks where I buried it and the trees and flowers "thanked us" ! (Must've been his "Police Training" !)

They even know what a "Koban" is in France...

Not everyone who reads JT knows Japanese or what a koban is.

This is why many prefer to put their old parents in care centers.

...of which there are not nearly enough and those that do exist sometimes don't take such good care of their residents...

RIP young girl.

I wonder however what is the age for driving license here? I know in US is 16 and thought here is 18 or am I wrong?

The young girl was on a BICYCLE... there's NO age limit for that...
