~ Whether it’s a chat with our attorney,
or a short converstion with a contractor
or bank teller – it’s apparent that everyone
is anxious about the economy.
How did life in the great USA
get so crappy, so fast?
Charisma doesn’t necessarily

We shall see.
However, who would expect a vodka company
to come up with a warm fuzzy commercial?
This makes you feel good,

"It might seem odd that Buddhist temples
in Japan house the occasional stray
mummified demon (oni), but then again
it makes sense to keep them under the
watchful eye of a priest, instead of letting
them prowl the streets. Zengyōji (善行寺)
temple in the city of Kanazawa
is home to the mummified head of a
three-faced demon. Legend has it that
a resident priest discovered the mummy
in a temple storage chamber in the
early 18th century. Imagine his surprise".
