  1. Oh no, can't believe it!!!!

    But I understand the amount of work required to keep these forums running, and I will still continue to use the site and post reviews and photos.

    I appreciate all the work you guys have put in and look forward to the new stuff you are doing.


    Thank you for such a great site.


    P.s if anyone wants to keep in touch with me like SJ said contact them to speak to me.

  2. As for the Japanese houses being sugoi, the standard rental houses are far from sugoi, rather pretty shite.

    Paper thin walls, wafer thing glass, cold as f@#k in winter and hot as.... in summer.

    Not sure where they get the sugoi part there.

    Having your own house built to a decent standard like we did is different, but the bulk standard houses, no way.


    These clowns just want to be on TV.

  3. That is why I don't watch Japanese TV, it pisses me off, all this over the top sugoi's, umai's, subarashi's, etc.

    And they usually have to shout while they say it.

    Basically any of these type of programmes do my head in.

    It is a big reason I did not bother to instal TV cable in my house and went for hikari instead.

    When I want to watch NHK news I use myportable TV or just wifi connect my phone to my TV if I want to watch it on a big screen.



  4. Turned into a really sunny day by late morning and a nice warm 15.5oC today, was lovely.

    Cold again tonight, but as it has started clouding over I doubt it will be frosty tonight.

    Forecast has changed and now has us down for rain off and on all day tomorrow right through until mon or tue.

  5. Went out and got the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge t'other day.


    It's too smart for my liking but good fun to use. Forgot to back up my contacts on my old phone so need to work out how to transfer them over.


    If you bring back to the shop tjey can do it for you, takes a few seconds to transfer all your contacts to your new phone.

    I am surprised they did not ask you, they normally ask if you want them transfered.

    Another way is to just transfer them yourself using blue tooth or infrared, which both your old and new will have.

    Go into contacts, then the tools or settings menu or whatever it is called then transfer, and just follow the instructions.

  6. When they built it no one thought about the fact that at over 600 metres high even when it is raining in Tokyo in winter it could be snowing at the top of that tower.

    There were several complaints last year of falling ice hitting people or buildings down below.


    I can understand if great big chunks of ice were falling down, but soft and fluffy snow!!




    That is the problem though chunks of ice falling from the top down on to buildings and people below, which is why it has got several complaints

  7. Sukayu in Aomori seems to have gotten the most snow with 28cm.

    Not bad for October!

    A lot of areas in Hokkaido got a nice coating too.

    It will probably all melt this coming weekend as it warms up, but some very early season snow is always good well that is as long as it doesnt snow here for another couple of weeks or so otherwise I will have a lot of buggered vegies.

    Looks like the frost has ruined some of my cabages.

    It was white here this morning too, still is where it is shaded from the sun,

    But not from snow, from frost!
