i love some of the pictures you have of the late senator.... he sure had a rascal smile!  :)  great to see the candid shots of him laughing instead of posed shots.  thank you for sharing these memories of such a heroic man who will be sorely missed.

looks good!  i did crest whitestrips a while back and those worked and/but i didn't notice any sensitivity.  was thinking about doing something like this again... maybe this is the answer!  thanks for sharing this info!

i love bairin but guess i will now have to try kimukatsu to make sure you are right!  ;o)  lol.  i would like to try kimukatsu - at least to see how much difference the layers of pork make.  sounds interesting (though, not as much so in your review!?).

 

 @Melissa808  - been to bairin a few times and their tonkatsu has been awesome!  melt in your mouth and juicy deliciousness!

looks like this is a place with staying power!  i've seen so many restaurants come and go at that location over the years... it's been kinda sad!  the food looks great and i can't wait to try it!

beautiful!  i love that sunset picture!  and, of course, still jealous that you were fortunate enough to catch the northern lights during your stay!  i guess good food is a relative thing, eh?  (and, your palate is more spoiled than most of ours!  lol.)

i agree that technology has made LDR's much, much easier. no need to worry about the long distance telephone charges, especially if you have the same cell carrier - you only need to figure out what time it is on the other side. you feel so much more connected when you can hear someone's voice over the phone on a daily basis, if only to share small anecdotes or what you bought from the market.

with your busy schedules and the time difference, it will likely help to set some kind of schedule. also, while technology is great, don't underestimate the power of a handwritten letter. they are still wonderful to receive and so much more personal than an e-mail - a nice surprize every so often.

you're both committed (especially if you're engaged - congratulations to you and derek!) and you have the tools to make the best of it, though it won't necessarily be easy. i'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of wisconsin than you ever thought! ;o)

it's a good thing i didn't go follow you upstairs at yogur story! lol. i would only have gone upstairs to look for the bathroom and/but i was a little curious what it looked like up there! (the food was yummy and it was nice to see you, by the way!) if i happen to see you at petals and beans, it will be because i went looking for chocolate doughnuts! lol. but, i know you're busy working... i don't get why people don't understand that by now?!?

nicely written! i've been told that a great picture shows the soul of a photographer - i think a great story shows the soul of a writer, as well. you let us in with this one. thank you for sharing your experiences in osaka with us!

@turkfontaine - you brought back a long forgotten memory! my family used to go down to the redondo beach pier to buy live dungeness crabs. after we got them home, i'd be amazed by the live animals in the pot that gradually stopped their shuffling as the water got hotter. we could smell the crabs cooking as we'd wait by the dinner table which was covered with newspaper for our hands-on feast! we couldn't wait to start cracking those crab shells so we could dip the sweet meat in melted butter! mmmmmmmmmmm... hmm... now i want to eat crab! lol.

Bacon! Reminds me of my dad cooking breakfast while I was still sleeping... but he'd always save a few slices for me to eat when I woke up!

@matti2d @snow thanks for the tip! i've never actually made a meatloaf! but, since my oven doesn't work (it's really old and broken!) maybe i need to get someone to take me to roy's! ;O)

i used to dine solo a lot more than i do now that i'm married. only dine solo if my family is busy doing other things and maybe i'm running errands but in the neighborhood of somewhere i've wanted to try but i think they won't really like! lol.... that's kind of a lot of criteria to get to the point where i'm dining alone. but, i do enjoy the downtime and people watching. when i used to travel by myself, i didn't want to only eat fast food so i started going to restaurants... loved it, though i always ordered too much food! lol. oh well, why not if i might not get a chance to come back, right?

@Melissa808 @Ynaku you have to ask shauna about art at art's hideaway! last time he nearly fell over rushing (he's pretty hyper... always rushing around but a nice, hardworking guy!) to get things for her! lol.
