If not a local donut shop, I take Mr. Donut over Krispy Kreme. Unfortunately, no Mr. Donut in America anymore. NYC has some great donut shops!

@gogogo, right. It was tacky back then. Eh, ¥1,000 here, ¥1,000 there, before long, you're talking about money.

Posted in: Are you better off financially than you were this time last year? See in context

Like Serrano said, health, tha's where it's at boys. Believe me. I'm a tad better off financially I reckon, but health took a down turn in October 2017. Retired last April 1st (hmmmm...., why they make me retire that day?!). All I can say is I've worked like a dog, sorry Rover, laying at me feet, all my life! Started at 7 years old cutting grass with a biscuit motor (left/right arms), paper boy, gas station, construction, Vietnam war (sorry Vietnamese people, but I only thought maybe the south could become free, prosperous, and democratic like South Korea did), then every kind of work there is just about. Let's hang in boys, we're gonna make it.

So much for all that peace and love 50 years later, eh? In reality it was the beginning of a progressive downfall of decency, dignity, and respect.

Posted in: Putin says U.S. presence in Japan complicates signing of peace treaty See in context

I'll put it this way: do you trust Putin?

Not me. He's still a communist, like China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela. Of these, western countries have messed up greatly by doing so much trade with China, cannae buy anything not Hecho en Chine since the 1990s. I'll take Hecho en USA/Japan!

Posted in: Burnout, stress lead more companies around the world to try a four-day work week See in context

I've been in the work place for over 55 years. Here's what has happened: hard workers have always worked hard (I won't talk about slackers). But since the advent of computers, people are working harder than ever, and expected to do more! University professors have been doing secretarial work at their jobs, doctors are record keepers, police are report filers, managers take work everywhere they go on laptops. You simply cannae get away from your work these days! It's killing people in advanced countries! Until I retired last March, I was doing more and more computer work that used to be done by secretaries. And I have never been a secretary, which is in itself very important work!

Hitler took this symbol over. Similar to how racists too over the stars and bars confederate symbol. Feelings toward these symbols will not change no matter their original meanings. You can't go any deeper than how people believe about something.

Posted in: Japan to spend more on defense, refit 1st aircraft carrier See in context

@Toshihiro, well said. Except I don't think Abe is hawkish, he is a realist. The reality is that the world will never be peaceful, and civilized democratic nations absolutely must be very strong. Thugs of the world only understand strength. You do not try to reason with Hitler types, no matter how nice they seem. He fooled most of the German people. And they are very smart. Just were not wise.

Eh to, if people were Ethyl and me, Hollywood would be bankrupt. We have a very low tolerance for non excellent movies. Very few excellent movies since about the 1950s, a few after then...

Japan needs a very strong military. Defense and offense. Not to attack again, but offense for self defense.

Sid, I've had fibromyalgia many years, and whew, if she has it, I and other sufferers understand! It is a crazy mess, this fibromyalgia. Inexplicable. I wish her well in these new duties, and think she will be an excellent representative for Japan.

Posted in: Celebrate Christmas, New Year's Eve at Hilton Tokyo See in context

Serrano, hey, it's Christmas! Plan for it one time a year, like we do. Anyway, we absolutely love Christmas in Japan. Better than America. We usually try to go to the lunch buffet at Ebisu, forgot hotel name, but wow, it is great! Beautiful decor, atmosphere, food is excellent! Not in Japan this Christmas, but these hotel Christmas meals are wonderful in Japan! Sad, but I don't know of a single place in America that compares.

Posted in: Neighboring suburbs in Japan face divergent futures as one grays, one grows See in context

It's a difficult situation for Japan. Very sad to see so many young people not marrying and not having kids. As an American, my maternal great grandmother had 15 children! Grandmother had 5, my mother had 7 of us, we have one, but wanted more (couldn't have kids, medical reason). Materialism has definitely gotten in the way of children. This problem in Sakura is like the kindergarten problem, a deep competition for people! And, immigration is NOT the answer. That's just moving people from one country to another and changing the language, traditions, and culture. Don't get me wrong, I love melting pot places like California, Hawaii, but the world needs homogenous societies like Japan. Have kids Japanese.

I see people writing the derogatory word, j. a. p., too often on car forums I like to read. I call them out, usually by replying what if you wrote the word nig etc. I am not politically correct, but I am respectful.
