Posted in: 10 signs that you may be addicted to life online See in context

Most all of my time spent on the net is in securing deals to make a living. I joined FB etc. for the same reason. You won't find me posting about what I had for lunch. My value as a star on the social media stage is slim to none and I like it that way.

It does not surprise me that Makoto still has not been able to shed the mold she was cast in. Being a happy guest on the planet works well in any country. Everyone judges others.

One of the best places for a night out in Tokyo. Amazing selection of beer and great food. Also a great venue for events. In fact you can drop by Sep 28th on Wednesday 7pm til late, for a free InterNations event with over 100 guests and over 20 nationalities. Michael Kaplan owner of the American Guitar Academy will be playing some Jazz to add to the evenings festivities. Come share a brew with the global minded community in Tokyo.

I can only step back in appreciation for such valiant efforts to collect bodies. Do your best and know that as hard as it is, your job is essential to the recovery of us all.

Posted in: Why did those foreigners who decided to leave Japan in the aftermath of the March 11 disaster come in for so much derision from some people who labeled them with words like 'flyjin?' See in context

Labels, smabels....Basically it comes down to being responsible for your own choices. There is no right or wrong reason to stay or leave. The individual's choice is theirs.

If you left at the outset, when no one had any information as to the extent of the meltdown, then you can hardly be blamed for making an irrational decision. Even more so if you have kids or are prenant. Just erring on the side of caution.

However the fear of Japan goes on in the media even to where many events and trips here have been cancelled months into the future. There is evidence of panic and irrational fears.

Personally at this juncture I would be more worried about safety in many more cities than Tokyo. Fukushima is a concern to be sure. I can live with that choice.
