This post is really only for those who understand Japanese, as I am referring people to my account on a Japanese language networking site called Mixi. Sorry.

Mixi.jpを使う。 私はです。 もしMixiを使ったら、Mixiでコメントとかメッセージとかを書いて下さい。

Google Ads

I have started running Google Ads on this page. Google has a program that allows me to make a little money (very little) by placing ads on the page, so I thought I would give it a try.

Click the following button if you would like to sign up to make service by running ads on a web page of yours:

What do you think? Are the ads obtrusive or annoying?

Google does have a lot of good programs. I talked about Google Maps in a previous post. I also use, which is a networking web site (though that program is a little buggy yet). And even Blogspot, where this is posted, is a Google company. Is Google taking over the world?


どうと思う? うざい?

Googleは沢山いいソフトがある。 ブログでGoogle Mapsと言った。 そしてOrkut.comをしている、でもあまりよくない。BlogspotもGoogleのです。 Googleは世界を征服する?

Going to Japan / 日本へ行く

I am going to Japan next week for a job interview. I will be in Tokyo from July 7 through the 10th.

If the interview goes well, I will give the details of the potential job.  The job is in Japan.

I don't know if I will have time to see people, but I hope I do.

Google Maps

I think Google Maps is a great service. Both maps and satellite photos are there. I have wasted a lot of time just looking around at the satellite pictures of various areas.

This is a picture of my apartment building as taken from a satellite.

Here is a satellite image of an aircraft carrier docked in San Diego.

Here's the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.

What interesting things have you found?

Google Mapsはいいだろう。 地図とサテライトから写真がある。 サテライトから写真を見るのは沢山時間の無駄だった。

Mainichi Daily is a newspaper in Japan. One area of it is a web page called WaiWai, where they cover a side of Japan which is rarely talked about or seen. I find this stuff very interesting.

毎日新聞はWaiWaiと言う部分がある。 日本の珍しい事だ。 とても面白い。

New bicycle / 新しい自転車

I bought a new bicycle.

A few weeks back, someone stole my road bicycle from my garage. They cut the lock and stole that bicycle and another person's bicycle. That was disappointing.

But now I have a new bicycle! This bicycle is special in that it is made for traveling. It has this special method of splitting apart and comes with a custom made suitecase that fits it.

Now I am ready for some adventures!



2,3週間前に泥棒にロードの自転車を取られた。 錠を壊した。自転車2台を取った。がっかりさせた。

でも今新しい自転車がある。 旅行のための特別の自転車だ。 自転車のスーツケースに詰める事は簡単だ。

Welcome / ようこそ

Hello and welcome to my Blog.

Why am I making a Blog. Well, I don't have a reason right now. When I was traveling a lot, I had a set of web journals (this was before Blogs were around) that I manually posted.

Blog software (like allow me to post easier and allow people to post comments, so this is definitely better than the manual posting system I used before.

If I start traveling again or otherwise do something interesting, I can use this location for my postings.

I will try to write in both English and Japanese.

始めまして。 ブログにようこそ。

如何して私はブログを作る? 今理由がない。 沢山旅行をした時、手動のウェブ日記を作った。ブログを発明した前だった。



英語と日本語でブログを書こう。 でも私の日本語がまだ上手じゃない。
