Saturday’s Blog is Cancelled. (Navajo’s Amazing Sandpainting) Due to its unpopularity, Saturday’s blog (A Trip to Navajo Country) is cancelled. I am thinking about something else for Saturday’s blog. If you have any request for the topic, please let me know! Thanks!
Global IME is BACK!!!! (You don’t really appreciate something or someone until you lose it or him.) It took me whole 7 hours since I seriously started to try to get my Japanese Global IME back – 9:00 p.m. though 4:00 a.m. I’ve gotta tons of things to say or to bitch Microsoft out, but you don’t wanna hear, do you? I wanted to give you some advice when the same thing happen(ed) to you. I mean you are lured into downloading or upgrading to Windows 10, you don’t like it, you uninstall it, and then you lose something! When I screwed this up, I panicked… called to ask Microsoft …

After Microsoft Global IME was gone with Windows 10, I haven’t got it back yet. Accordingly, it is impossible for me to update “Saturday’s Blog – Trip to the Navajo Coutry.” Sorry for the inconvenience again! This week I will devote myself to getting it back and resuming Saturday’s Blog as well as to updating my website. New things are coming! Looking forward to getting your feedback!!
Announcement On Thursday evening, I ACCIDENTALLY upgrade my dear Windows 7 to Windows 10, prompted by Microsoft’s ad popping up way too often. This was one of my biggest mistake (I confess!). It took too long to install it. When I was aware that I could use it after a couple of hours or so, I found Windows 10’s got a millions flaws. OK. Let’s move on. I decided to UNINSTALL it. It took another couple of hours! After that, what do you guys think happened? My Global IME (Japanese) is GONE!! Since then, I have been trying so hard to get it back, but only in vain. Accordingly, …

New!! Saturday Blog ＜ナバホインディアンのくにへ＞ My Reserch Trip to Navajo Reservation in Arizona (1995-1996) On weekends, let’s focus on accelerating your reading ability! I wrote this unpublished book in Japanese about two decades ago. This is my real journal, not fiction, based on my stay on the Navajo Reservation in 1995 and 1996. I will publish this only in Hiragana and Katakana so even beginners can read it. Remember? You have to read to improve your language skills drastically. Expect me to give out my original Japanese script if you would like a real challenge! This new blog will show up on Saturdays, starting on July 18th. Questions are welcome (only …
On an article in TIME FOR KIDS “A WHALE OF A DEBATE” – Very Biased Educational Material Last October, my 5th grader brought back this issue of TIME FOR KIDS (5-6 EDITION), which stunned me in not a good way at all. Very biased. Not suitable for an educational material. That was my first impression. I wrote about it in my Japanese blog, to which one of the very knowledgeable readers responded with so much frustration. He explained fully to me how right my first impression on this article was and how unfair whatever the author of this article wrote there was. Immediately after that, I translated his comment into English …
