  1. Cheers for ths info in this thread, we will be skiing Nozawa Onsen during mid Feb 2014 for the first time, very much looking forward to it! Will browse this & similar threads more closely to help in advance. Go Manly!
  2. TAKE THAT NRL! Perhaps now you'll put a few more Maroon & White jerseys in next week's Finals ads. Enjoy that win all you bookies, tippers & Manly-haters who were pretty convinced the result would be otherwise tonight. That last 30 minutes Manly turned it on, took advantage of a stumbling South Sydney team, and won convincingly - great to see as a Manly supporter! Whilst I reckon the Roosters will dominate the Knights & win well tomorrow, I'd love & prefer to see the Knights win, taking the Premiers out of the comp at the final hurdle, and making for another Sea Ea
  3. That is a fantastic read, thank you. Will be visiting Kyoto for the 1st time ever in Feb 2014, and looking forward to it greatly, including a planned bicycle tour.
  4. Heading to Japan in Feb 2014 here too, only ever been to Niseko a few years ago before. We travel to Kyoto Feb 5-12, then Hakuba skiing Feb 12-20. Will browse this and other threads/resources for any tips, Cheers! --- Also, Yes, the advice we have indicates this as well, as for Day passes still the costs are quite cheap compared to what us Aussies are used to, especially with the AUD <-> JPY currency being fairly strong lately.

  11. Re: the SuperMoon (Lunar Perigee) this weekend - the Moon will be closer to Earth than it has been in 19 years. Expected to pass as close as 356,577 kms away (that's just over 27,800 kms closer than the ave. of 384,403 kms), the Moon should appear about 15% brighter and slightly bigger than usual. Let's hope for some good views of this Full Moon rising tonight.. Yea, it looks like the Full Moon technically occurs around 4:40am Sunday 20th March, but as it's not visible from Australian East Coast then the next best time will be as it rises in the East Sunday & Saturday evenings, by the
  12. Japanese Whaling Operations Suspended 17 Feb 2011: "Japanese Fisheries Agency official Tatsuya Nakaoku said the Japanese factory ship, the Nisshin Maru, had suspended operations since February 10 "to ensure the safety (of the crew)" following numerous skirmishes with Sea Shepherd activists in icy Antarctic waters." http://www.news.com.au/national/japanese-whaling-hunt-may-end-early/story-e6frfkvr-1226007184366 This is good news to wake up to this morning - The more whales saved from this disgraceful practice the better. Let's hope reports of "a changing tide of domestic opinion"

  14. From: http://www.ronniejamesdio.com/ "Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever. - Wendy Dio" After recent varied rumors circulating, it looks like he has lost his battle with stomach cancer R.I.P. Ronnie you Le
