JAPANESE - Paul's "Japan Articles" from his 5 years of living in Tokyo, Japan. Paul was a gaijin magazine cultural editor for 2 years, plus there's a Japanese holiday calendar, some earthquake advice, and miscellaneous articles that he wrote for other magazines and newspapers published in Japan. Living in a foreign culture is an adventure! I highly recommend it for those who are able.
Hi, so how's it going? This page be a compilation of various and asundry articles and images. There is no overriding theme, but a few sub-themes ... hope you find a few interesting things.

- These are extremely thought provoking musings from Douso.
He speaks some 4+ languages (...including assembly), has traveled the world,
reads prodigiously, and can bake cakes like you wouldn't believe!
A native Tokyoite he has the unique perspective of being able to view Japan
much more objectively (both positive and negative) than any other Japanese
person that Paul knows.
The "copywrong" section is entirely under Douso's
editorial discretion. It is divided into Japanese and English
- Some images from a Summer 2000 trip there.
- The Adventures of Fox Staubest! This one is TOP SECRET!
- Looking for unbiased info on the best products and good buys? -
then take a look!
- The Internet has opened new news sources, which is fantastic.
...Don't just keep reading the old liberal-establishment news, gather a
healthy balance of news from a variety of informed outlets!
SERMON ON THE MOUNT
- Wisdom can come from many sources. Don't ignore the time-tested
wisdom of the Bible. If you've never read Christ's "Sermon on the
Mount" (Matthew, chapters 5 to 7) - now is your chance! :-)
- The Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill
of Rights* (...*The Bill of Rights is applicable in all cases unless
it's called a hate crime; BTW any non-hate crimes out there?),
Paine's "Common Sense" (published anonymously in Jan. 1776; it's swift
spread through the colonies helped lead directly to the formation and signing
of the Declaration - barely 6 months later - of July 4, 1776). Also
some selected words from Thomas Jefferson. Read for yourself the
wisdom in these time tested documents.
- We're barely conscious, in the spiritual sense. From the
beginning of humankind we've been easily deceived by malicious higher powers.
Who are we? Why are we? Don't waste too much time on that hobby
or house. Scientific theories (like current beliefs about evolution,
for example) come and go - take a look at the other side of this important
issue. Don't be deceived and thus focus on the wrong life priorities.
