Uighurs

Muslim scum, right? Can’t be trusted. Suspect. Dangerous.

What to do about these seditious Muslim terrorists in the midst? Why let them proliferate and use up resources that decent people need?

Lock them up. Eliminate them. Eliminate all record that they ever existed.

This Week’s Book Review – Rain of Steel

Looking for a good read? Here is a recommendation. I have an unusual approach to reviewing books. I review books I feel merit a review. Each review is an opportunity to recommend a book. If I do not think a book is worth reading, I find another book to review. You do not have to agree with everything every author has written (I do not), but the fiction I review is entertaining (and often thought-provoking) and the non-fiction contain ideas worth reading....

Mordor Across the River

The fires out here have finally blown the virus out of the government topic of the day. Something about imminent danger and the fact that a poor response is immediately visible to politicians and the voting public seems to change the topic.

We here across the river have smoke and foul air but nothing compared to our former home.... [Read More]

Do you laugh at yourself?

I find some of the happiest people I know have the ability not to take themselves too seriously. They can laugh at themselves and see the craziness of life at times.

A while back I put up a post about climbing up to a place and sweating buckets to see a “waterfall” that was a trickle. I was laughing at myself.... [Read More]

$100 Moving Experience

Over the last weekend I rented a van at Toyota Rentacar. I had to move chairs, tables, a desk, and various things. The crew was two ex high school principals, two retired company presidents, and a loose nut behind a wheel. The loose nut was tall and had round eyes. I forgot to mention “my boss”.

It took me time to figure out which vehicle to rent. I needed one that had a cargo bay that was about 7 feet long. I could have gone for a two ton open truck but decided a long van would be safer. I wouldn’t have to worry about rain or things falling out. This is the type I got.... [Read More]

Waiting My Turn

Have you ever struck up a conversation while you have been in line at the supermarket? I have many times. (It helps having run a cash register and knowing the time limitations.)

Today I was at Costco and there were two lines. The Japanese lady in front of me had a big bag of death AKA Snack Size Snickers. She switch to another line because it looked quicker. But when it looked like my line was going to be faster I motioned to her to go ahead of me.... [Read More]

Who called the police on me?

It was another hot day. I was trying to tell myself that excuse is enough for me not to exercise. But unfortunately or fortunately I can recognize lame excuses so I went for a hill climb.

It is interesting how I start out with the  goal of going to the top but mid walk I think it is hot or this is not the day. Last week I used the real excuse that my legs were tired but that excuse was past its expiration date. I decided to go to the top.... [Read More]

Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?

DONALD TRUMP: I’ve been told by my many sources, good sources – they’re very good sources – that the chicken crossed the road. All the Fake News wants to do is write nasty things about the road, but it’s a really good road. It’s a beautiful road. Everyone knows how beautiful it is.

A Japanese Health Club

It is hard to explain to someone who had not lived here the amount of stairs that are in this country. There are stairs and there are stairs. I am posting some stairs I saw from a road AKA alley in the States.
This is from the road level.

This is at the top of the third flight of steps.

This is at the top. I didn’t go up there but it looks like one goes up at least five flights to get to this house.

In the first picture there are blue plastic bags. Those are trash bags to be picked up by the city garbage truck. I mention this to illustrate that living up all those steps means carrying things up and down those steps. One has to be in good shape to do that day in and day out.
These stairs are easy. They are wide and well made. Some stairs I have seen seem more like ladders than anything else. I think the only way you descend those is backwards.
I wonder what age one has to stop living at the top of these stairs. 60? 70? 80? One thing is for sure if your BMI is high there is a fat chance you will be climbing these often.... [Read More]
