Are desalinization plants still a thing?

Seeing as how we are perched on top of a mountain out here in the western Pacific Ocean, lots of water.

Bad Idea?

Interesting because any Japanese gal I have ever dated spent the night on the third date. That being said, why wait so long to travel even after being intimate?

This is going to be a big decision to take a fourth shot. The first three gave me hives which I’ve never had in my life before this.

Posted in: Japan to trial small group tours from 4 countries See in context

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has said he wants to ease border control measures, but moves are expected to proceed slowly, with strong public support for the current restrictions.

I have lived here since 1993 and always felt the majority of people don’t want foreigners here.

Proper mask-wearing is necessary if you cannot maintain enough distance with others outside and talk with them,"

Majority of people will never take them off here. Consider it the norm for a long time.

Posted in: Tokyo lawyers to collect info on police stopping foreigners for questioning See in context

Had two stop me on my push bike just getting back to my home. The one with the machine to confirm it was my bike and registered to me was fine.

The other almost demanded my name, where I had been, where I was from and where I was living.

I looked at him with a big smile and in a calm voice asked him why he was asking me all the questions.

Luckily by that time the machine told the one fellow my name and it was properly registered to me.

Moral of the story,

At night time the most dangerous thing for a foreigner individual is a cop.

Posted in: Mother, boyfriend filmed themselves abusing her 3-year-old son before his death See in context

What a shocking headline and story. Being a parent myself, I think back to when my children were three. Probably the best times of my life.

All the wonderful and funny things they did and said. Children are so wonderful and innocent.

What would or could ever make an adult do that to their own child?

Very, very, very severe punishment needed for this one.

Presidents, Prime Ministers or whatever they are called, don’t need an ambassador. It’s a waste of money. Their yearly income could choke a goat!

They all have Twitter don’t they? They could at least just call each other once in a while…

This guy is going to accomplish absolutely nothing and get paid well.

This report doesn’t reveal much information. Curious to know what state of mental health these people were in during the times mentioned in the article. Apparently, they had money to move and that isn’t cheap here.
