Life is calling you to move on. You don't need to stay embroiled in old arguments or stuck in an endless cycle of blame. Sooner or later it's time to start the engine and drive away. Though your past is in focus this weekend, ignore the squabbles that seek to distract you from your true path. They offer no real threat to your security or way of life. They're merely the frustrations that boil over when others don't understand what motivates you. Stay true to your philosophy. It brings you new roads to travel.

Round Up

Round Up




A random shot of the view from the top of the Yutaka Building facing southwards. 


Dec is an intern at RCI Bank in London for this coming year. 
RCI of course are Nissan / Renault. 
He got to 'experience' the new 2017 Nissan GT-R. 



Wishin' and a hopin' .....  LOL 
Thus said, it's a cool look for Dec, methinks. 



The Japanese engine builder's name is imprinted on the engine.
However given the quality of the photo it is difficult to decipher.

Sunday 
the 25th of September, 2016

We took the highway bus to Sendai to attend Church. 
After that we ate lunch in a new-to-us shop there. 








 It was fine. We will go back again sometime in the future. 
And we enjoyed walking about in Sendai.

22nd Equinox Starz

    
Cancer
Jun 23 - Jul 23

You're involved in several conversations that are more than just small talk. There's more to them than merely talking about the weather or inquiring about the family. There are key issues at stake and futures to be decided. You're entering a phase when matters from your past pull into focus. You don't want to repeat mistakes, or return to an unsatisfactory situation. Nor will you have to. Be compassionate towards others, be honest with yourself, and be ready for the tide to turn for the better. The Equinox is here and it's the perfect time to regain your balance, to straighten out whatever in your life is out of line and to make a new start.

Happy 8th Anniversary to us !  

Eight years ago today,  in 2008,  Chikako moved from That City to This City. 

The 21st was a Wednesday and we both worked, 
however the next day, Thursday the 22nd was a public holiday in Japan. 
So we decided to celebrate on that day, albeit very rainy, instead. 






Above    Chikako bought some flowers to celebrate the occastion.
Below    We walked up in the rain at 6 pm to HiFuMi Restaurant for dinner. 
























As always, HiFuMi was wonderful ! 
Plus we drank a bottle of Australian YellowGlen  Pink. 

Happy Anniversary to us.

Sunday 
the 18th of September, 2016 


We went for lunch at a Chinese Restaurant in this City which we often go to. 

Soon the restaurant will go to make way for a new, large FMU Building 
in the middle of This City  ! 






We will be sad to see this shop go !

Sunday
11th September, 2016

We are members of a Walking Group. 
This year we have only been able to participate in one walking event
due to either the weather or to not being in Japan. 
However, this Sunday we managed to bring it all together and go walking. 
Yay ! 








 Yukie and Chikako just after signing in at Iizaka Station.











 The rice paddys are looking golden and wonderful. 



4.3 kms into the walk there was a pit stop. 
Some light refreshments .... 








Some goldfish lazing about in the pond. 














After the walk we caught the train back and then met Emi and Momo Chan
at the station. We all went back to our apartment for lunch together. 
It was fun, as it always is .

Some annual maintenance checks on the bridge.
The engineers had some cool machinery to assist them.
