Car Accident

BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Creak!!! Creak!!!


A huge earsplitting clamor I heard near my house suddenly.

Surprisingly a car accident happened!!


It seemed that a bus neglected the traffic signal and a car crashed into the bus.

The left side of the bus was dented.

The front cover of the car was peeled off.




It was my first time to see the accident right in front of me.


Watch out when you cross any streets!

Crazy drivers abound anywhere. (≧へ≦;)

Summer has come

"Summer Memories" sung by William Silk.


Long long ago when I was but a child
I remember summer days were always warm and mild
Long walks in meadows, carried by the breeze
Summer is the time of year that fills my memories

Autumn brought the cold
Turning leaves to gold
Long and dark winter nights
Dimly lit Christmas lights
The spring would never, never come
With daffodils, she came,
And then, at last, the cold departed

Far, far away now, all my friends have gone
Holidays and games we played, all summer long
Those were the days when no one cared who won
In my heart it's summer scenes we always had such fun

Where...have...they...gone...?
Hmm...where have they gone?

Autumn brought the cold
Turning leaves to gold
Long and dark winter nights
Dimly lit Christmas lights
The spring would never, never come
With daffodils, she came,
And then, at last, the cold departed

June saw the fireflies, floating on a stream
High above the stars were bright as in a dream
Such were the joyful memeories we made
Memories, like fireflies and stars, will surely fade

Where...have...they...gone...?
Hmmm...where have they gone...?




This song is based on the original song "少年時代 (Shonen Jidai)" by a Japanese folk singer 井上陽水 (Yosui Inoue).

You can enjoy the English arranged version on this site→http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG3wzqCPG3M



Now we're in a swelter summer.
Some summer songs suit on such these muggy days.

Hearing my favorite summer melodies, a fresh yellow green youngster come over here at my garden.





Mantis!!! So tiny!!


Hmm...smell of summer. (^^)

Cool Drink

Mix Berry Lemonade of mine on the left.

Kiwi Mix Protector of my brother's on the right.

U・SO・DA・BE

My brother went to Yamagata yesterday, and he gave an interesting gift to me.

That's the police poster which is announcing the caution of swindle call.


Not so rare itself, but to my surprise, the catchword seems to be very provincial.



Here!!!!!!!







.........."Usodabe" Σ( ̄□ ̄;)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I don't believe my eyes!!!

Incredible, isn't it?






The message is gripping the people absolutely.


I think, espescially, the last word "Be" standing for "Best response" is so nice and unique. (^□^;)







May peace last forever in Yamagata!!

British Style

Sometimes it rains and sometimes we get sunshine.

This uncertain weather is just like in England.

Especially in the calmmy morning like today, I feel as if I were in England.


In such morning, I'm fond of having traditional British breakfast.


Two or three pieces of crisp toast with marmalade, sugarless cereal, bacon-and-eggs (seasoned with salt & pepper only), coffee or tea (I prefer Earl Grey milk tea), and a fist-size pear as a dessert......

Well, I must be a gentleman.

Paul

Do you know of Paul?



He was born in Weymouth and now resides in Germany's Oberhausen See Life aquarium.
.
.
.
.
.
Can you guess who he is?
.
.
.
.
.
Well, probably he is the most famous octopus now in the world.

He is just called the 'oracle octopus'.



But how?




OK, so I just tell you that.



A staff at the aquarium help Paul make his prediction by lowering two boxes of food into his tank, one with a German flag and the other bearing that of their opponents.

And the case he opens first is adjudged to be his predicted winner.



Paul previously predicted the winners of all of Germany's World Cup matches, ceating a huge amount of interest around the world. But this is the first time he has to choose between two non-German teams.



And, you know, Spain beat Holland 1-0.



Paul correctly predicted the World Cup final outcome and maintaining a 100% tournament record. (He had correctly predicted the outcome of all 6 matches already.)

Do you believe Paul is a phychic octopus or just lucky? (^^)

Spain Win 1-0

The Invincible Armada won a narrow victory over the Netherlands!!!!!

The goal in the 116th minute came off a turnover by the Dutch defense that Cesc Fabregas controlled just outside the penalty area. Andres Iniesta stayed on the right and sneaked in to grab the pass and put his shot to the far post. Goalkeeper Maaren Stekelenburg barely brushed it with his finger tips as it soared into the net.




Fantastic, don't you? (^O^)

I'm so happy to see that moment after the long seesaw game this early morning.

And I just feel that the closing of World Cup 2010 left a vacuum in my heart.



I'll be 26 at that time when the next World Cup starts..........too long to wait for 4 years!! (≧ω≦)









Anyway, so sleepy now. (ρ_-)ノ

SAYAPATRI

My lunch at "SAYAPATRI", which is my best curry restaurant in Urawa.



Today's special is the hottest one called "Chicken Multani".

Here is the photo.



To confort my burning mouth, I ordered "lassi" as a dessert.



Do you know lassi? Lassi is a sweet Indian drink made from a yogurt base with water.


Blissful moment...(^^)

Saya Patri is located near Ito-Yokado.

Find this sign!!

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Today I have to present how to read or interpret "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in class.

I had been interested in this story because I've heard the set of words 'Uncle Tom' in many places ever before.


Well, through my reading (it might be as mostly same as many experts interprets), there are 3 plots on this work:

① Author criticize the slavocracy.

② Religious (Christian) interpretation

③ Domestic ideological interpretation

It's too long and complicated to have you understand each detail in my blog.

If you're intererted in it, please check them out on the books or Internet.

But what I really want to say is..........

To read the book in many aspects is so interesting.

The ability to find something unique, creative, or original is one of the most important elements the young generations are needed now.


Broaden your mind!!

And enjoy your life! (*´∀`*)

Cicada

Today is the first day of 2010 when I hear the voice of cicada.


Perhaps it was a large brown cicada, which is the most familiar one in Japan.

When I was a child, I used to go capturing some beatles or cicadas in the woods by hand.

Have you ever done such a thing before?

Summer Sale

Since last week, many department stores have been holding their summer clearance sales.

I always buy some clothes or accessories at 30%~60% discount every year.

But this time I only bought three hats and two watches.

The sudden heavy rain struck and many people are getting soaked to the skin.

I can hear the children's scream. (´Д`;)

Video: Captain EO

Starring: Michael Jackson

Director: Francis Ford Coppola

Exective producer: George Lucas

Captain EO

Happy news!!!

Tokyo Disneyland on Thursday reopened a 3-D movie featuring with Michael Jackson in about 14 years.

The theme park will run "Captain EO" for a limited time through June 30th, 2011.

Yeah!!(≧▽≦)

I waited for this moment.

Probably, most of you don't know the film.

It was a featured attraction at the theme park between 1987 and 1996.

When I was a elementary school student, my mother sometimes took me to Disneyland and we always enjoyed "Captain EO".

The Captain EO's magic always captivated me and it made my world sparkling with a lot of joy.

Later I'll update the movie.

I suppose that you're too old and adult to enjoy the film purely, but I really recommend you to see it with your love at Tokyo Disneyland. (^_-)-☆
