chiba was largely too far south of the quake to get the tsunami hard, but they do have some radioactive hot spots.

when i was stationed here it was very cheap, and our base had reg beds, not bunk beds. only prob in miyako was bugs. worse then in japan proper.

after japan i took 6 months of columbia river lightship duty, which was horrible, and the about like 1 an a half years bouy tender duty out of honolulu, which i really enjoyed.

I enjoy visiting old light houses. They are usually in such scenic places.

tho old life boat stations can be quite picturesque, too. i think the one i was at in charleston at the enterence to coos bay is now a museum

That is a newie on me Carl me bein' an Aussie and all that, that Tassie is separate from Auss! Cos to all us Aussies, Tassie is an Aussie state!(Grin spreads ear to ear) But glad to hear that you like our beef what ever it is called! Aussie or Tassie beef!

Hello everyone. I was raised Catholic, attended Catholic school, received four of the seven Holy Sacraments of the Catholic Church. This was before Vatican II, so I guess I would be classified as an Old School Catholic. So of course I grew up a good Catholic boy never questioning what I was taught and believing that only thing greater that the Holy Father was God Himself and of course the Mother Superior. The Catholic Church considered a sin to attend a non Catholic Church service. So the first time I attended a Bapist service (to make a good imperrison on a girl) I had a very sleepless night. This lead me to find out lay people were allowed to read the Bible, I had been conditioned in school that if you had a question you need only ask the nuns or a priest and they would pray with you for the answer. Years later I was encouraged by the JW to study with them and I did although I was not impressed with their docturine, it was however the beginning of the end of my religious indoctrination. As it turns out, studying the Bible is the fastest way to cure your religious faith. The way out was not easy, although I could not believe in the God of the Bible, I tired to make my own verison of God. One that was not capable of casting His creation into an everlasting Hell. So I foundered around calling myself Spiritual since how could all the things around me just come out of nothing all by themselves. Finally after half a lifetime of searching for answers, I have come to realise that it is so much more maroulous and wonderful that all life had to survive and evole to where it is now overcoming unthinkable odds, then if an Omniscient and Omnipotent God, had just created everything. So here I am in wonder of the universe and everything in it ready to live every minute of this wonderful life for it is the only one I have and it is truely a miracle.

Hi Lupe, good to have you here. And i feel just like you, whenever I think of the odds that brought me here, all those humans who struggled through hundreds of thousands of years, enjoying life and caring for their babies and family and friends, it is indeed truly magic. Much more wonderful than any scripture fairy tale.

 

And yes, for intelligent people, the best cure against religion is studying their own religion :-)

hey lupe welcome here

  Hello again to all members of AU. First I want to apologize to everyone here for my obviously bad behavior  in my discussions with some members. I am really a good guy at heart, who had his buttons pushed the wrong way, If I could do it all over again, I would make wiser choices in my aggressive language. In anger management groups I was in, I learned 3 behaviors. One is passive, just not me. 2 is assertive, of which I know better than to go beyond that level. 3 is aggressive, which I made a bad choice to revert to,KNOWING I CANT go past assertive level. I have no excuses for how I acted. I know better, and it wont happen again.I PROMISE YOU! I wanna say thank you to those in power who reinstated me.I appreciate your gesture. Very Kind of you. Well now I gotta work on gettin my pic back on the board..Thank you all for your patience and understanding.  TeeCee  (Tim)

hello teecee
