I was told about this technology 5 years ago, told to not bother with solar panels, to wait until technology was improved.
Glad I waited and didn't cover my roof with ugly solar panels.

They live in a quiet area, they want it to stay that way. It would be different when moving to a new are, they are right to complain. Find a noisy area for this facility.
My criteria of looking for a home in Japan is no schools or the like nearby!

Nothing wrong with an open window in December at night - it's called fresh air.
Maybe it's more important to ask why a 5 year-old child was awake at that time of night.

I knew a girl who did hostess work. She cried before she went to work, she cried when she came home. She hated it - and the men that came to the bar. She did it for the money, then married a lovely Aussie man who took her away from all of that. Now she's happy.

Every year I wonder how, after seven or eight decades of life in Japan, people do not take heed from the annual death toll and chop up their motchi before eating.
I nearly choked on New Year motchi when I was in my thirties, I chop it now, even though I still have all my own teeth.

On a 1988 tour of Finland, Lemmy was asked by one journalist why he had kept going for so long.
"We're still here," he replied, "because we should have died a long time ago but we didn't."
"Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil. Going with the flow, it's all the game to me."

I sympathise with you completely as I am in a similar situation.
It is not always possible/practival to find an immediate solution.
Very selfish & cowardly of the husband to make another be the cause of his death.

J-hubby puts a pat of butter on steak when he cooks/serves it - it's lovely, so I think this is a good idea - I'd try it.

It seems to me that the woman is fighting the current law, not her ex-husband who may, we do not know, agree with her.
All other arguments aside, they were after all separated for a while before the divorce.

Good point Educator60.
When I bought my bike 4 years ago I took training and was so glad I did - I reckon I'm a much better rider now, in my 50s, than I was when younger. Besides which I now have a sense of my own mortality - something I definitely didn't have years ago!
