How’s it going?
… still taking yoga or chi-gong class?
It’s getting awefully cold these days, isn’t it?
Practice, practice, practice …
Don’t catch a cold.
By the way, how did you like the tastes of Japan?
…hope you appreciated some peculiar kind of taste—different flavor of “Dai-fuku” or “Great Luck.”
Dai-fuku are gaining popularity and there are several varieties such as:
1) Yomogi daifuku : A version made with kusa mochi, which is mochi flavored with mugwort.
2) Ichigo daifuku : A variation containing strawberry and sweet filling, most commonly anko, inside a small round mochi. Creams are sometimes used for sweet filling. Because it contains strawberry, it is usually eaten during the springtime. It was invented in the 1980s. Many patisseries claim to have invented the confection, so its exact origin is vague.
3) Yukimi Daifuku : A brand of mochi ice cream made by the company Lotte.
4) Mame daifuku : A version mixed azuki beans or soybeans into mochi and/or azuki sweetfilling.
5) Shio daifuku : A version which contains unsweetened anko filling, it has mild salty taste.
6) Ume daifuku : A version which contains sweetened plum instead of azuki sweetfilling.
7) Coffee daifuku : A version which contains coffee flavored sweetfilling.
8) Mont Blanc daifuku : A version which contains puréed, sweetened chestnuts (Mont Blanc cream) instead of azuki sweetfilling.
9) Purin daifuku : A version which contains crème caramel instead of azuki sweetfilling.
As Dai-fuku are gaining popularity, you are also gaining popularity.
Why the heck is that?—you might ask.
Well … I’ve just written an article about you.
I hope you’ll enjoy the above article!
Your smiling Bohemian, Kato
with a lot of love

Maybe your e-mail isn’t working properly these days, kiddo.
I send you a thank-you note the next day.
My sister and I both enjoyed the unique tastes of Japan and appreciated your thoughtfulness; very sweet of you to do that.
Thanks also for this very salacious article.
My goodness, your command of English is improving every day.
No wonder you have followers from so many countries.
Keep it up, kiddo.
I’m looking forward to seeing 100 countries one day; now wouldn’t that be something.
It’s YOU who is popular, not me … good for you to put forth all that effort.
Keep warm, Kato,
Still doing yoga ~ every day now ~ enjoy it more each day it seems,
Love, Diane ~
So, Kato, how’s the access from overseas? Have you got some more guests from other countries?
Yes, since you read the last article, one more country has been added to the following list:
Access from Overseas
I see… So, you’re expecting the number of countries to reach 100 soon, huh?
Yes, I really hope so.
By the way, Kato, have you found out what’s wrong with your e-mail system?
Oh yes, I think I know.
What’s the problem?
Well … I had the same problem before. Madame Taliesin sent me a message to my AOL mailbox.
Then she phoned me and complained that I’d never replied to her mail.
What was the problem at that time?
To make a long story short, AOL rejected all the hotmail messages originated from Japan. She was using a free Japanese “hotmail” account.
But how come AOL rejected those messages originated from Japan?
…’Cause AOL received so many spams from Japanese “hotmail” acounts.
Is that right?
Actuall, some sites had to close down because they kept receiving such a great number of spams that the spam traffic went beyond their system’s handling capacity.
I’ll show you one example for such case.
Server Abuse & Spam
We regret to inform you that ActiveFreeHost free hosting service has is now closed (as of September 18).
We have been online for over two and half years, but have recently decided to take time for software improvement to fight with server abuse, Spam advertisement and fraud.
New account signup is suspended, if you are looking for a affordable and reliable hosting, Hostgator is one of the options.
For the existing 20237 FREE accounts opened in ActiveFreeHost we will continue to keep your account, but no content changes until the further notice.
For any ActiveFreeHost user involved in Blog Spam (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link_spam) or any activities against our Terms, please use the email email@example.com for report abuse.
I do appreciate the efforts made by volunteers in ActiveFreeHost and Peter Green at Rima Hosting for his instant support.
I see … So your mail system thinks that messages from Canada damage it and rejects all the messages originated from Yahoo-Canada accounts, doesn’t it?
I suppose so.
But when I reply to your mail, it works perfectly.
I know, I know, … So when you want to write a note or something to me, use my old mail and reply to it with a new message.
Email spam, junk email and unsolicited bulk email have been a big problem.
Bad guys send nearly identical messages to numerous recipients by email.
Clicking on links in spam email may send users to phishing web sites or sites that are hosting malware.
Spam email may also include malware as scripts or other executable file attachments.
So, don’t open these malicious email.
In any case, I hope Kato will write another interesting article soon.
So please come back to see me.
Have a nice day!
Bye bye …

Hi, I’m June Adams.
Commercialization of the internet and integration of electronic mail as an accessible means of communication has another face – the influx of unwanted information and mails.
As the Internet started to gain popularity in the early 1990s, it was quickly recognized as an excellent advertising tool.
At practically no cost, a person can use the Internet to send an email message to thousands of people.
These unsolicited junk electronic mails came to be called ‘Spam’.
While the linguistic significance of the usage of the word ‘spam’ is attributed to the British comedy troupe Monty Python, who allegedly staged a skit in which a group of Vikings sing a chorus of “SPAM, SPAM, SPAM…” at increasing volumes and attempt to drown out other conversation.
Monty Python – SPAM
The historic significance lies in it being adopted to refer to unsolicited commercial electronic mail sent to a large number of addresses, in what was seen as drowning out normal communication on the Internet.
According to Brad Templeton, founder of ClariNet Communication Corporation, the first email spam was from 1978, and was sent out to all users on ARPANET.
It was an ad for a presentation by Digital Equipment Corporation.
It was not until 1993 that a USENET posting was called “spam.”
In April 1994, spamming ﬁrst became a business practice.
Two lawyers from Phoenix, Canter and Siegel, hired a rogue programmer to post their “Green Card Lottery- Final One?” message to as many newsgroups as possible.
