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
Scary! I hope you manage to get it worked out!

Yes....all original wordfiles were still there, so I am making all new pdf's. But it was a bit of a shock that a thing like this could happen, without me being aware of changes in Adobe or Macbook. And my ext.HD and Dropbox as well....all just evaporated.

Gong Fu is a small tea shop in Iowa that I order tea from. I do all of my shopping with them via the internet.

Ah, good. Always a pleasure to find a new tea shop!

Cup is empty. Need to go cook some lunch and brew a pot of tea. Maybe an old favourite, Pride of the Port.

With Drop Box you have a history,you should be able to recover deleted file, and previous versions of the files. I have done this when some of my files got corrupted.

Wash away my troubles, wash away my pain
With the rain in Shambala
Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame
With the rain in Shambala

Ah, ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ah, ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Everyone is loved, everyone is kind
On the road to Shambala
Everyone is happy, everybody is so fine
On the road to Shambala

How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala
How does your light shine, in the halls of Shambala

( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2mW5...eature=related )

I'm still walking around in a trance... Last night was one of the most intensely beautiful, peaceful, serene, experiences of my life. I've been to several tea ceremonies in Japan over the years, but none... NONE... have come close to what we experienced last night. It was mystical. When performed by a Grand Master, it really does get taken to a whole different place. Same motions. Same tools. Very different experience.

Good morning, everyone. I'm sitting with a cup of Ahmad's "English Breakfast" tea (which I actually prefer to the tea that the Master served us last night,) drinking it out of my $5.95 mug instead of the priceless tea bowl that the Master served us with. Frankly, it's easier to hold the $5.95 mug... I guess it's a case of 'pearls before swine' but to me, even the $200,000 tea bowls look like something my son made in arts and crafts at Summer Camp when he was 8 years old. We went to a Tea Bowl Museum in Nara prefecture a few years ago, with hundreds of priceless tea bowls on display. Very interesting, but... I guess I'm just to Western to understand.

These bells do make a wonderful sound. There are many to be found in smaller temples that anyone can ring when ever they wish to. (I wonder what it's like to live next door to one of those temples...) Charlie, you can still come to Japan... It's no further away than your airport. You get on the plane where you are and get off in Japan. No different than getting off in Houston or Chicago except you can't read the signs. Very few North Americans come to Asia (as compared with Europeans.) Americans go to Europe or the Caribbean. Europeans, Brits, Aussies, and New Zealanders come to Asia. Percentage-wise, I'd guess there to be less than 10-20% North American, although even for North Americans, the Canadians far out number the USAans.

Well, see, it's about that minor little problem called money. Having a way to do it on someone else's dime was really the only hope. There were chances during the glory days of the dot com bubble, when I was making major $$, but instead we went to Africa one year, and Antarctica another. Then when I decided to downsize and focus on quality of life, I moved to Canada and the Sunshine Coast. That was also a decision to accept that major travel was likely out. I've got enough points to make a round trip on Virgin in Upper Class to the UK, but that's the last freebie still around. So the chances are I won't get to Japan. Though, having worked for Toyota for >10 years, I would very much have liked to.

Nope. I've been to both. I'll take Toledo.

The next trip I got was (wait for it)...

Dallas. In August.

Ah, those were the good old days when a boondoggle was something to look forward to.

Done for the day. Oban in my glass.

Thanks VydorScope for the suggestion; didn't think to look at the history. Strange thing is that my timemachine didn't give me those files back and I had to redo all. And I still don't see why Adobe stopped. I will look into some alternatives today.

In my cup: cold coffee.

Afternoon cup of Ceylon Uva. Good stuff. I'm sitting here braiding a keychain for a friend who was very specific... It had to be leather, black and white with a four-strand braid of flat suede lace, and finshished with a Turkshead knot tied in round leather lace. It's HARD to tie a Turkshead knot real small! I think more tea will help!

Yeah... I hear that. When I moved to Asia, I held a yard sale to raise some money. I took in enough for a one-way ticket and $500 in my pocket. My friends said I was crazy, but the optimist in me said it would be OK. But then, I'm so optimistic I think yesterday can get better...

mmmm chocolate chip cookies (starts humming the cookie song from the Philadelphia Chicken Album and thinks that she needs to counter kids music with rap or something grown up)

Seven Son Pu-Erh (a massive brick) on one cup, apple cinnamon oatmeal in the other.

Tonight is date night. Baby boy is being left with the day care for Parents Night Out. we are going to see Bond. I am thrilled. Time with the hubby and a great flick. (giggles)

Baby boy is 27 inches long and 18 pounds 12 ounces. He is growing nicely. My Doctor is totally pregnant but not telling folks. I know a maternity shirt and baby bump when I see one though and the nurses were grinning when I asked them. Lucas does not like getting shots. He did really well though. He had nightmares last night. It is hard watching his face get all scrunchie and to hear him scream. I was able to hold him and help him settle down but it is so hard to watch. I wish I could tell him that the shots are good for him and make him understand but I just had this vision of nightmares with people sticking him with things that hurt.

(sigh)

It's finished. It's not actually a 'keychain.' It's a lanyard for a pocket knife. I've just always called them keychains as I used to keep my own pocket knife on my key ring when I was younger...

Sorry about the quality of the photo. I shot it with my phone...

I really missed the Disney kids music when my daughter grew up. And those shots for babies...yuck...I would rather have them myself at the time


And you'll love the James Bond; best film ever. I bought the whole series last week.

In mu cup: cold coffee
In my hand: peanuts (that is: real peanuts....)
