By the way, for those who have been curious about my references to Osaka and Kyoto, both are prefectures (think: States) and also both are cities. Just like "New York." My condo sits right on the street that forms the political/geographical border for the prefectures. One side of the street is Kyoto Prefecture, the other side of the street is Osaka Prefecture. When I say that I'm going to 'Osaka' or 'Kyoto,' I'm referring to the 'downtown' areas of those cities, (that I've marked with a red dot) both of which are about 25km from where I live.
So which of the Prefectures do you actually live in?

Well, well. i'll see about it in the evening as I have to be off to work in the Archives, on my bike.
Have to redo them all, I fear.
Curious as to how that could possibly happen? Did you do an Adobe update or anything recently? I have just had an Adobe Flash update run this morning...

Rooibos in my cup, and a small apple on my plate - it's one of my Fast days.

Relaxing with a cup of Keemun tea, having just returned from the Education Center.

Nice group of senior citizens in my new English class. Eight people with skills levels from one who writes novels in English to one who can't form a sentence to say where she lives. Should be fun...

My mailing address is Osaka, but I park my car and motorcycle in Kyoto... where the red dot is next to the bamboo forest, but at night time I lock up the motorcycle in Osaka at the blue dot in front of the building. I live most of my day life in Kyoto and night life in Osaka. Often I get confused.

I have no idea. I didn't update anything recently, I think. It looks as if all PDF has been wiped out, on my Mac, iBooks, Dropbox, externat HD. It has to be something in my Macbook which doesn't agree with Adobe any more. I'll see to it this evening.....Weird.

Looks like you must have a great view out of your windows, assuming they face the road and the bamboo forest.

Your talk of olives earlier is not helping my fast... I just had to go and have some, with a couple of slices of salami. Just blown 138 of my 600 calories allowance!

There is a Zen temple in the middle of the bamboo forest. Every morning at 5am they ring the giant bell. I never hear it. But if I'm outside at 5pm, when they ring it again, I hear that one! Sounds very Zen... There are often monks walking to the temple from other temples... they walk everywhere, never riding trains or busses... wearing woven rope sandals, with huge woven hats covering their heads and faces...

This is me ringing the bell several years ago... The monks are pretty cool...

That certainly is an enormous bell. It would make a splendid cup for a giant. I wonder what a giant would drink from it?

Coke Zero #2 for me.

Can anyone ring their (massive) bell, or do you have to get special dispensation?

Black decaff in my cup.

Very nice, Stitchawl. I could have used some Zen when all pdf's disappeared. Somehow Adobe Reader got disabled on my Mac and I had to re-install, before I could make new pdf's. I am busy making new ones. Well, it did clean up my files. But I didn't realise that even in Dropbox those files would disappear.
How's Thailand?

In my cup: cidre
