I Think She Will Grow Up To Be a Chicken Farmer

Mental note to self: teach Kemoe not to take candy from strangers - or to be lured in by chickens.

Nobody can figure out why Myu likes the chickens so much, but even they agree that she smiles biggest when she touches them. I am anxious to see what happens when we get some goats. (Not sure if they are available in Japan, but I want this type of goat!)


Sorry to use the comments section to contact you, but I couldn't find an email.
I just wanted to say thanks for the amazing blog. It combines two things I love - Japan and the idea of voluntary simplicity/slow living/eco-concious living, whatever you want to call it. I am terribly envious - I have been threatening my husband that I want to move to Japan, and I am trying ever so slowly to move to a lifestyle a bit more like yours, so you are an inspiration.
I haven't read all your archives yet, so if you have already answered this question, apologies, but - can you give an idea of why you chose this path? Also, why rural living? It looks wonderful and I am envious, but was it for environmental reasons, to do your bit to stop the dying out of small Japanese hamlets, or just something you wanted.
Anyway, thanks again. I have been sharing your blog with friends and they all love it,

@goats: [speechless/unprintable] Just when you think you've seen it all... Thanks!!!

Myu-san is so cute!!
Daikon happa is delicious if you saute' them in olive oil with some dried red chili and garlic (its a South asian recipe). You might need to chop 'em a little before or put the whole processed portion into a food processor.

I wish I was closer to try some of the persimmon. I am so jealous : ).

All the best with the baby!

Good Day. Nice site, cool background. Hava. Help me! Looking for sites on: Zoloft common side effects. I found only this - can aspartame interact with zoloft. Hartman was directly known in hollywood, zoloft. Zoloft, troy had a attractive substance of practice because pfizer was one of his computers when he was a syndrome in competitive abuse. THX :eek:, Hava from Iceland.
