Extreme Ironing

Now, this is ironing. I am not quite sure I am up to carting an ironing board up the side of a mountain, but it appears to be a new sport in Japan. Extreme Ironing... the new way to combine exercise and housework at the same time. I only question how the iron gets hot without a power source.... but then again, this is Japan, so it is probably a cordless / rechargeable one.

Book reviews

I have started a second blog for book reviews... mainly to try it out and see how it is compared to Blogger. Anyway, the link is in the sidebar on the right. I have got a ton of books that are piled up waiting for me to read them, so there should be several reviews over the coming weeks. Maybe it will give you some ideas for your days off over the holidays, or if you are giving books as gifts this year.

What happened?

I took a couple days off blogging, and suddenly it is a month later! Have lots of things to catch up on. Hopefully will get the chance to update lots of things in the next week or so. Just came back from Beppu on Monday and have some good photos (link at right). Will get a post up about that soon!
