When I am sitting it is often for ANOTHER reason as nature is also different to calling upon us humans for some specific reasons in life.

Must admit my ignorance on Thorium reactors, & saw the demonstration, in Japan, this morning on the TV News.
All I know is that Canada only has three nuclear power plants with two being in the Province of Ontario & two in Quebec, BUT thoughts of a few more in some of the more eastern provinces.
Though in Western Canada (that means Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Albert & British Columbia) there are no nuclear planets.
I think if a ship from another country with nuclear power wants to come into a B.C. port they are banned, BUT I could be wrong on the latter bit.

Good photo for they are NOT like Canada Geese that can be so different to the smaller ducks.
I have a friend that makes a Spring pond so between his wife & one daughter they are not only attracted to the ducks & young ones, it is the fun of feeding them ( to scarring off the owel that looks upon the little ones as food) just out from the window of their home.

A good product I do believe. For instead of all leather with steel shank for the use of crampoons when mountaineering amongst some of the glaciers.
The lug-like sole is like original Vibram (became avaliable after WWII from Italy) while the material of the rest of the boot would be more flexible, breath better & become a very good hiking boot to also some normal rock climbing.
To me they look ideal though with a size 10.5 or C width in North America the length along with width can be a factor. In a Mountaineer boot I use to purchase a 10.5 with D width for heavy socks. Shows times have changed.
I have a pair of Brooks sneakers with almost lug like sole, but when I need somthing to stand up to cold weather or rocks then an old pair of Italian made boots, with 5th set of Vibram soles, are what I have been using since tho 60.

I do not know, & being a Canadian, for I have been a LONER from childhood till now being 80+ yrs of age & do not envite others into my home or at their social events, for I have been a non-smoker (my parents were heavy smokers), do not drink & do not use illegal drugs.
No cousins as I have lived them out & moved away from them, to follow my parents when young.
My only perk-up in life is riding my Sportbikes (winter is a shut down time in riding(, to h/gun shooting plus stripping down & cleaning the guns, bit of lube as well, to showing others how to do the same.
Thank you to the PC so able to dial into a few boards like on guns/reloading to m/c boards to JT!!!!!!

Though other countries with nuculear power plants are going to keep their eyes on what Japan will do, for while most do not have earthquakes to tosomsli-----some of their power units are also OLD & might need to be upgrded.

Seems a bit high in price. My old stove broke down to many times SO I purchased a cheap Black & Decker small stove for thing like cook for 10 or 30 minutes & has worked for past 4 yrs, but must admit the hotplates on the old oven work & besides I do have a Microwave.

I liked what we are seeing in the new designs. Personally I feel the top part is a bit to much.
True models will not be able to show a maze of bare flesh--bocy, but on the beach they might like it for the beach to actual, possibly on a boat to slimming.

Proof of how to turn a male away. When I thought it was the make-up, hair, to clothing to attract a male.

SO is this is the future to what people, especially young women, will be wearing in Japan? I thought Japanese women were going for various forms of dress, to attract males, rather then all wearing a said uniform bar one for school.

Also the outfits from the feet to the top could be dispossed after use.
In another form or work it was the same for use in what we wore for safety.

When we see a ship like that washed up on the shores, it really does make one wonder, but to see the equipment in revover it is even more amazing.

Remember the news about the disaster & loss of not only homes, businesses to humans & children is NOT that common to people out of Japan, like in USA, Canada, Auistralia, England & others.
We can ONLY go on what was showen on TV of a photo like that of a Winnie the Pooh bear, to wake us up again.
After all the peoples uprisings in of Egypt, Libya, Yemen, & other incidents have been headline news to some of us YET we want to know all that is going on in Japan.

That is going to be a chore for the mother with one or two kids up front & the danger to them if she looses balance will have m/c, or anyone with safety in mind, to riders talking about PROTECTIVE riding gear for the child or two children.

The HAT on her head is due to all the royality in England of some of the most crazy hats most have never seen previusly. As for the "beauty products" well I guess you could toss some hats like that as being some of he products when one thinks of it.

This is a bad time to so many in Japan & this is proof that the stress on some people has gone out of hand. Still for a man to stab a woman is totally wrong in the mind of any man or woman. I hope she recovers to the best.
