4/24    Anybody have a Japanese garden in in their house?  I'm thinking of
        adding one.  I figured out where to get the Japanese maples and
        bamboos but I can't seem to find a place where they sell the little
        tower thing and the small bridges, etc. I'm doing this myself, not
        going to a landscape company.  Thanks.
        \_ There's a store on Piedmont Avenue that has all kinds of crap like
           that.  -tom
           \_ can you be more specific?  if you don't know the name what is
              the cross street on piedmont?  Thanks.
                \_ south of 40th, near Cato's Ale House.
                   (what idiot changed "on Piedmont Avenue" to "in Berkeley"
                   above?)   -tom
        \_ Note: Bamboo is not particularly 'Japanese'.  The variety found in
           Hawaii is much the same as in Japan.  -mtbb.
           \_ Not to mention it is generally used in the singular form.
              \_ You probably mean it is an aggregate noun.  However,
                 this person's usage may be correct if he is referring to
                 a plurality of types of bamboo.
           \_ By the way, if you plan to plant bamboo READ UP ON IT FIRST.
              Bamboo is a beast that will take over your garden, wreck your
              driveway, etc.  And getting rid of it after that stage is
              a serious pain in the ass cause it is all one giant plant.
              You really need to build a thick concrete retaining structure
              in the ground before you plant the stuff.  Otherwise if you are
              living in the same place 5 years down the line you will curse
              the day you planted the stuff.
              \_ ditto for strawberries.. but they tend to be tastier.
                \_ I planted dandelions.  Much easier to maintain.

        Japan rules!
        \_ Fifteen years ago I worked there for seven months.  I miss Japan!
           (I'm Chinese immigrant.)  More facts:
           - Besides cold drinks, vending machines also carry hot drinks like
             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

8/29    OC turning liberal, maybe there is hope for CA afterall:
        \_ and the state is slowly turning conservative. Meg 2010!
           \_ We will see. Seems unlikely.
        \_ Yeah, because CA sure has a problem with not enough dems in power!
           If only dems had been running the state for the last 40 years!

7/20    Is jblack still on? What about the rest of the pro-war cheerleaders?
        \_ War is fought for the glory of generals and the economics of the
           war machine.  Looking for "justifications" for it is like looking
           for sense in the necronomicon.  Just accept it and move on.
        \_ When we fight with Red China, what nation will we use as a proxy?

12/5    Miss France is very good looking:
        \_ she has a hook nose and face is a bit too V shaped.  Body is ok.
           I mean lets look at the sample pool of 20 something EU:
        \_ French women in general are good looking, so Miss France is probably
