    When I was a kid I never went to a dentist to have my baby teeth pulled. I always went to my neighbor to get the toothie job done. My reasoning: She had four children, all older than me, and surely she must have pulled their baby teeth out. Thus lots of experience. So, I trusted her with wiggling out my loose baby teeth.

    While still a child, I had a tooth that became infected. When a local dentist tried to pull it, he held a needle up in front of my face ... and I panicked. He couldn't touch me. My father then took me to another dentist in another town ... and he put me in a hospital to treat the infection. About 10 years later that dentist told me in a serious talk on his dentist chair, "If that first dentist had pulled that infected tooth ... it would have killed you." My savior: a new drug called pencillin. Tis a longer story, but I'll stop short here.

    Been watching this on TV all day today (Monday). Needless to say, it is fascinating. The perfect hit job, plus it was all captured on TV monitors placed at various locations around the Kuala Lumpur airport terminal. From the moment of the attack until he passes out in the airport clinic 27 minutes expire. Again, fascinating film. If you get a chance to see this TV footage, be sure to do so. Bet it's a popular film behind closed doors in North Korea.

    The story that is unfolding behind the death of Kim Jong Nam is becoming as exciting as book thrillers written by some of the best fiction writers around. We all know where the final solution lies ... but getting there and the story behind it make for some good reading. The full picture front-page layout in the New Straits Times newspaper, and being shown over and over again on TV, is also wild. In that photo we see somebody who looks like Kim Jong Nam sprawled awkwardly on some kind of a small chair or stool. Quite a story ...

    I'm surprised the two women are still alive. Under intense questioning I'm sure they will produce an interesting story ... most likely leading back to North Korea itself ...

    Visited here several years ago. A fascinating place to see ... and it has an interesting history behind it, too. If you ever get to Nagasaki you've gotta take a boat ride out to Gunkanjima and see the place. It's a boat ride you won't forget.

    I really enjoy Valentine's time here in Tokyo. I like going around to the department stores and tasting their free chocolate samples. In the past it was usually just me among the many women who were savoring the chocolates. From the above comment ... guess I'll be getting some competition from more men this time around. So be it ...

    Posted in: People no longer care about the difference between men and women, making it easier for men to proudly proclaim, ‘I have a sweet tooth.’ For such men, Valentine’s Day is more than just a day of romance, but an occasion for them to sample an array of chocolates.

    Saw the photo on TV numerous times. The way it was displayed along with other photos showing signs saying do not stand here ... it makes them look stupid ... which, apparently, is what they are. Just hope youngsters don't start copying their daring-do idiotic tactics ...

    The changes sound logical. As the regular season begins after the WBC is finished, it saves wear and tear on the pitcher's arms. But despite the changes, if a game is still tied after more innings, say 15 or 18 innings, then what? I forget ... is there a certain number of innings that can be played before a tie is called like in Japanese pro baseball? Or is there no tie?

    Let the North Korean athletes come in for the Sapporo Games. They have done nothing wrong. It's the North Korean leadership that is stirring up trouble. Be sure to keep them out.

    What an exciting game. After the Falcons built up their big league one of the commentators stated what would be needed for the Patriots to pull even -- including the pair of two-point conversions -- and that's what the Pats did. And then they went on to pull in yet another Super Bowl title. Great!!

    Great show! Impressed with the way she came down from the sky (roof). The above article describes what happened ... with the only thing missing being the actual singing. In her opening pledge of allegiance, she clearly stated "one nation under God" ... a good start to her singing performance.

    Yes ... he is purposely trying to evade providing an explanation. In TV views of him, he appears as a grumpy old man ... and always shakes off the news media ... especially when they try to get comments from him as he leaves or enters his home. It appears he definitely mismanaged the Toyosu market fiasco.

    The way Sarah is going, she will have over 100 wins by the time she retires ... way down the road (slopes). She is only 20 years old and so far nobody is strong enough or good enough to beat her consistently. If she can keep this up she could be skiing for another 10 years or more ... with lots of wins each year. I refer to her as "cannonball" Sarah ... and credit her wins to the solid shape of her rather short body and the fact that she really practices and trains hard. So ... many more wins!

    I've been following the casino issue since early in the 1970s. At that time Okinawans were considering opening casinos on the island of Okinawa to attract visitors from outside ... but the national government said: Nonsense. Creating a second Macao in Okinawa sounded good to me ... and still sounds good. Now the same party in power that was in power back in the 1970s is saying casinos might be good for Tokyo ... and perhaps all of mainland Japan. Too bad Okinawa didn't get a chance to try its luck at running casinos ... I think they might have been successful down there.

    That reactor No. 2 is extremely hot is nothing new. NHK had a feature on the devastated nuclear power plant last year in which it was stated that No. 2 was so hot nobody could enter it.

    As it will take at least 40 years to clear this mess away, and being that nothing has been done yet, do you realize that a baby born today will be about 50 years old when and if they finish all the work at removing the disabled facility. A lifetime of nuclear frustrations lie ahead for this and other babies being born right now. Gruesome ...

    As his ankle has been hurting since at least the Japan Series, it is a wise decision. If he plays with the pain he might also injure his pitching arm. Too bad because the Major League scouts wanted to see what he could do against Major League pitchers and batters in the WBC. Anyway, they'll get to see him next year as he has expressed his intention to play in the Majors next year.

    Friends from five different locations in the U.S. say the demonstrators are mostly ... and probably all ... Democrats. They are still peeved that Hillary lost the election ... and, thus, they are continuing to show their anger by demonstrating against Trump and whatever actions he takes.
