Support Tohoku Earthquake Victims!

Do you want to support the victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, and at the same time know exactly where the money goes? The Tohoku Donation page was created to do just that, support the victims of the earthquake/tsunami but also enable donators to track where the money goes.

Grocery Shopping

Grocery shopping during cherry blossom is a pain in the a…, scuse me, behind. Too many people makes nearly impossible to get to the store in a decent time. Luckily it was raining cats and dogs this morning so we crossed our fingers most people would stay home. Most people did, but it was enough people that had dared the rain for us to have to zig zag the car through a crowd.

At the Nest

Relaxing in front of the fire place at the Nest after dinner. Soon to take a hot bath that smell slightly of sulfur. 


Kaleo means “sound” or “voice” in Hawaiian and is also the name of an Islandic rock group that lives in Houston, TX. If you like rock influenced by folk and blues then this group may be worth listen to.
