Good post Desert Tortoise, General Average seems like an escape clause in this case though as there was never any danger to the cargo.

She isn't the first nor will she be the last to try to look good as she ages. Most people are similar in that feeling. She looks good IMO, but I say the same about Dolly Parton.

Cosport is the problem in this story. They have the audacity to still try and make money off this and think Japan is responsible for their profit - unbelievable. They've probably spent all the money on themselves already.

Under extremely trying circumstances Japan is trying to make a go of this and as far as I can see the athletes around the world are getting ready and hoping for the best.

We find it so humorous/ridiculous to see the advertisements of Dr.s smoking in the fifties, but scowl and/or avoid so many other fifties statements that somehow carry more weight.

Posted in: Japan to stage Tokyo Olympics without overseas spectators See in context

That was an easy and obvious decision, tougher ones are ahead. So easy to be a naysayer but if somehow Japan can pull this off, where we are now, with only 4 months to go I'll be very impressed.

Good for them! Less money on F1 and more on HondaJet seems like a good choice, would love to fly in one.

Posted in: Toyota begins building smart city near Mt Fuji See in context

I applaud them for taking this on. Of course It won't be just traditional post & beam construction ( 在来工法) as used in individual houses, but will hopefully incorporate the essence of it with innovation while still using wood. As a powerful Japanese company, Toyota's approach to the future seems to me much better than the haphazard approach of Masayoshi Son.

Posted in: Matsumoto Castle: An irresistible air of composure and grace See in context

I remember reading a sign that said that the castle was painted black to absorb the sunlight and keep the castle warmer during the cold winters in Nagano.

I don't disagree with this theoretically, but was that really the case?

Posted in: Matsumoto Castle: An irresistible air of composure and grace See in context

Matsumoto Castle is worth a visit, but certainly make it more than a day trip from Tokyo. Spend a night and enjoy the many local places. Also wainscoting cannot be the correct term or inference for the black exterior portion, it must have been for some defensive reason I imagine.
