        @oyeathatgirl Ha ha, good question. I only have one, in Tokyo's Kichijoji (voted best place to live in Tokyo many years in a row, and it's true). Take a look on Google. When I get a 2nd house, it will be in Singapore. I love that town, feel it's me 2nd home, and have many friends there. I like that it's always summer. I could go on and on about SG, but had best stop there. So after my 2nd home, my 3rd home would be in Calistoga. Been there many times and always love it.

    The trek begins in Phedi, a one hour bus ride from Pokhara (which is a short flight from Kathmandu). It can take a total of between 8 days and 14 days. The bottom portion of the trek is a network of trails and villages, then passes up the Modi Khola Gorge into the heart of the sanctuary and some of the most dramatic mountain scenery on the planet.

    13000 square meters of pristine coral reef were recently destroyed when a British captain commanding a Swedish flagged cruise ship ran aground in Raja Ampat. Most of the damage was sustained when the captain attempted to free the ship from the reef. It will take 50 to 100 years for the reef to be restored. It was reported that Captain Dick Head had done this once before to a reef off Northern Sumatra.

    Last month, a Singaporean tourist was in Komodo National Park taking pictures of a dragon eating frenzy when he got to close, and one bit him. A dragon's bite contains a blood-pressure reducing venom, which explains their hunting technique of biting their prey once, then stalking it till it falls over from weakness. The man was put on a military speed boat and rush to a hospital on another island for treatment. This is the first instance in 5 years of a Komodo dragon attacking a human.

    I have been to the border, the wall, the end of the reef, so many times, and have looked down into the void, the darkness, the unknown, and I was afraid. I backstroked to safety, to security, to a place of sanctuary where nothing real or imagined could harm me. But I always felt an overwhelming sense of weakness for allowing fear (or was it , actually common sense) to hold sway over my life and the choices I make. Of course, we can't just throw caution to the wind, but there are times when we just have to say, "Fuck it! I'm gonna do that thing, come what may."

Arthur, providing an absolute 10-year moratorium on Chinese immigration. Declining wages and economic ills were blamed on Chinese workers.

    On June 2, 1740, Marquis de Sade was born in Paris. His father was a diplomat in the court of Louis XV. From the start, de Sade was raised by servants who catered to his every whim. He became an aristocrat, philosopher, and a notorious writer of sexual cruelty, violence, criminality, and blasphemy against the Catholic church, all spawned from his personal life. His final 13 years were spent in an insane asylum, which didn't slow his sexual pursuits. He carried on a relationship with a 13 year old daughter of an asylum employee. De Sade died in 1814. The word "sadism" is derived from his name.

    On May 31, in 1958, Dick Dale invented surf music with "Let's Go Trippin'". Dale was a surfer and wanted to put to music the sounds he heard in his head while surfing. He used reverb which gave the guitar a "wet" sound. This became a staple of surf music. Dale earned the nickname, "King of the Surf Guitar" and was inducted into the Music Hall of Fame in 2009 and the Surfers Walk of Fame in 2011. Dick Dale still plays today at 80 years old.
