Go HERE to play free sudoku. They have 3 game types. One with Roman Numerals, another with Japanese characters for numbers, and, my personal favorite, pieces of sushi.

Friday Field Trip #4

Tetons as seen from Rexburg IdahoLast week Superwoman were up in Eastern Idaho for the burial of Superwoman's grandma. Grandma was an amazing lady. 90 years old. 8 children and 54 grandkids. Many many great-grandkids. My favorite thing about her wasn't the size of her family, but the size of her heart. Amazing, Amazing woman. But I digress. It was a beautiful service held in a beautiful part of the world.

I would love to retire in Eastern or Central Idaho. I haven't picked a place yet, I'd like the place I retire to be pretty rural, and you never know what areas will be urbanized in the next 30 to 40 years. As a rule I don't like cities, or urban life much at all. Sure, its nice to live close to a swanky sushi joint, and to be near the shopping, but those conveniences just don't match living in the country. I love seeing the twinkling stars light years away. To breath air that smells like alpine rivers and evergreens. To wake up to the sound of a morning breeze flitting through the trees. To hear a birds melody, and the babble of a cool mountain stream. It is unbelievable, you have to experience to understand it. I can think of no better way to spend my twilight years than here, writing, reading, cooking and enjoying a beautiful setting.

The Middle Fork of the Salmon RiverObviously I could go on, but I won't. Just let me hit some of the high points of this beautiful area. The The Salmon River (The River of No Return, I learned to fish on a tributary of this river), Island Park, The Snake River, Targhee National Forest, St. Anthony Sand Dunes, Ernest Hemingway Memorial (and the area he loved around Ketchum ID), Not to mention the best Potatoes around. And that is just the tip of the glacier.

I visited this area a lot as a child. I enjoy it when we get the opportunity to visit it now, even if its for a funeral, and I'd love to live out my golden years here. Hope you enjoyed it. Don't forget to take some tasty wild trout, and a sack of potatoes home with you.

Leopard: It's sweet.

Yoda Says:
Know somone who hates Halloween I do, Yes.

Some people deserve a good meal.

These guys definitely do. Firefighters get a sushi thank you. Some people don't think so, but I thought it was nice of Nobu. Prayers to everyone in SoCal and their friends and family all over.

Friday Field Trip

My trip has been delayed due to illness, I don't want to get you all sick by making sushi rice while I have a cold. Post coming tomorrow.

I'm feeling almost better today, one more day of constant hand washing, cold medicine, water ingestion, lots of veggies and vitamin C should have this cold begging for mercy.

Kiyomori

This blog has seen its fair share of sushi, its time to cover some samurais.




A samurai robot? Cool, I want one.

If you're curious this robot is named after Taira no Kiyomori, the first Samurai ever to be named Daijyo Daijin, basically Like the Prime Minister or President of Japan.
