    Agree India is having a heatwave with a heavy toll according to news.

    No air con here as yet and most likely like most years will be hardly used, small fan is enough for me. Unseasonably hot this year, when did spring happen?

    Those moves and ladders were mostly used to remove the burning hatch to prevent a fire from spreading.

    Worth a visit to the Fire Museum in Yotsume San-Chome, very interesting and lots of interactive stuff for the kids. Entrance is FREE.

    Some gara-kei had cameras, but a lot of people also use camera designed for video chat to do the recording or download from a digital camera.

    Lots of options now available.

    Personally wondering why people want to record their sexual exploits but than many teens now share nude pictures of themselves with friends.

    Many other countries have also recently enacted "revenge porn" laws.

    Yes, keitai too a large degree are used as is it easy to take a Shot and share it via SNS.

    As a Buddhist I am offended having to live by another religions code of morals.

    Isn't the Bible also based on older religions and texts like the Egyptian, Judaism, etc influences

    Some of us are also used to strong quakes from before we came to Japan. My 1st really big one was when I was in my teens on vacation, that one was scarier than 3/11.

    You mistake I think Mother and Father for Models/Roles that can even come from outsiders.

    When will you get it that Japan has a constitutional separation of Church and State, State Shinto went out with WW II.

    Most people in a homosexual relationship either chose the male or female role.

    And I fully agree that mother and father roles are not depending on sex as there are many great stay at-home dads where the mother works.

    Not sure how it works in Japan.

    Back home you need an organic certification, this required regular testing of soil and groundwater samples to ensure no contaminants are present.

    Most of the non-organic like pesticides can come from runoff's, etc from surrounding properties.

    Friend of mine had to move back to Shimane prefecture to take care of Family, very little work there and he is still looking.

    Deal sounds OK if you either got a good nest-egg or job lined up.

    I don't have a keitai but fairly easy to feel the strength level. Bigger worry is the duration and if it is a sideways or up and down movement.

    The latter gets me moving fast

    Show me proof that J-Gov asked for them to be enshrined, which is against the constitution.

    Any why did they wait till 1978, decades after the class B & C war criminals were enshrined.

    Toshiko.

    The J-Gov didn't didn't and can't enshrine anybody at a shrine or temple. The are no remains or ashes there, just a register of names and only a Shinto priest from the Shrine can add or remove a name.

    Agree the church has always been selective what to include and what to leave out if the old and new testament.

    Granted a church needs to be flexible to a degree to retain value and relevance, Going through Christian history is rather interesting.

    Good for Ireland to have had the referendum(true democracy) and they have strong Catholic and Protestant population.

    I still say you need separation between legal and religious marriages as is does in my home county.

    The christian church can only speak for Christians and shouldn't try to influence non Christians via the government.

    Hence the separation of church & state. Doesn't affect me who someone wants to partner with or what they on their own property.

    Only times I have seen overseas cards refused because the weren't International ones.

    Most local cards are a no-hassle issue.

    Cyclists have to ride with the flow of traffic in Japan.

    For traffic rules they are classed the same as 50cc Scooters. I now see more and more bicycles in my neighborhood getting of the pavement and onto the road.

    Will still take some time before cars and cycles get used yo share the same space. Bicycles should Aldo getba shaken type sticker as most are hardly roadworthy and not maintained.
