…looks like summer is coming

to an end in a week or so.

Hi Diane,

What a gorgeous day it is.
But it looks like summer is coming to an end in a week or so, I guess.

Are you taking a new Yoga class or, maybe, chi-gong class?

The other day, I happened to take a look at a GMO movie, which really makes me think twice—if not thrice—about genetically modified foods.

I was certainly moved by the movie.
So, as usual, I’ve written today’s article about it.


“Genetically Modified”

By the way, I read Page 7 of today’s “24Hours” papers.
It reads:

Living in a friendly community

may curb your risk of

having a heart attack,

a new American study has found.


In a study published in the “British Medical Journal,” reseachers followed more than 5,000 U.S. adults with no known heart problems for four years, starting in 2006.
The average age of study participants was 70 and they all took part in the national Health and Retirement Study.

The reseachers said it is known that where a person lives can negatively affect their cardiovascular health if there is a high density of fast food outlets, violence, noise, pollution and drug use.

But they found living in friendly neighborhoods significantly decreased the risk of having heart attack.

The researchers noted this was an observation study, so no difinitive conclusions can be drawn from it.
But a strong support network of family and friends has been linked to better health, and having good neighbors may be an extension of that.

I don’t think this finding is quite new at all.
It is all common sense, isn’t it?

I’m really glad to live in a friendly neighborhood.
My neighbors on the same floor are nice and friendly.
So I haven’t seen any doctor for these twenty years.
I haven’t been sick in bed—not even a single day.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,…

How about you, Diane?

Your smiling Bohemian, Kato
with a lot of love as always



Subj:I read it, too!

Hi Kato,

Well, well … I just finished reading that very article myself a couple hours ago.


Yes, it does make sense and it’s good to know, especially because we both live in a friendly environment and it also helps to make up for not having an extended family around us.

Whew! Looks like we’ll be okay.
Like you, I’ve been very fortunate to have been a healthy kid and a healthy adult … not to say I’ve not been to the doctor, but nevertheless nothing big or serious, thank God.

Glad to hear from you as always.
I fashioned a response to you on the Tyrannosaur DVD and it came back because I was using your old email.


As soon as I send this off, I’ll go into my drafts and try again.

Thanks for this GMO information.
I’ve sort of decided, though, not to worry about what I eat.
I eat well and healthy, I think.
And it’s too confusing to spend time sorting out all the information out there.
It’s overwhelming sometimes and the experts keep changing their minds it seems.

Ah, well, it will all work out in the end I’m sure.
…hope you’re doing well and having lots of fun, my smiling and romantic Bohemian, Kato.


Love, Diane ~


Kato, did you receive my email about the above DVD?


Oh yes, I did.


Subj:I watched it!

Hi Kato,

…hope you’re enjoying this lovely day.
I just wanted to let you know I’ve now finished viewing “Tyrannosaur” and thanks for the recommendation.


I did have difficulty with the male protagonist’s accent which was so typically thick of some of those Brits.
It is a sad story, for sure … two tragic souls.

I see his types at my volunteer jobs sometimes and I must say any woman with any sense whatsoever stays as far away from them as they possibly can.

That fury and anger can erupt at any moment and may be directed at whomever or whatever is closest.

Sure a surprise ending, though.
I actually thought he was going to go over and kill the husband.


It is a likely scenario, of course.
Don’t you think so, Kato?

But I didn’t suspect her.
Seems even at the end, though, they were still drawn together.



Good film, kiddo and I appreciate the recommendation.

…hope you’re having a good summer, Kato,


Love, Diane ~

I expected you to jot down your comment in the library catalogue as I did.


“Actual Catalogue Page”

How come you haven’t jotted down a comment.

Well … I’m kinda shy, you know.  I’m not an exhivisionist.

Do you think I’m an exhivisionist?

I don’t think so, but how come you jotted down so many comments?

…’cause I’ve decided to view 1001 movies.  So far I’ve watched 594 movies.


“Actual Page”

Unless I jot down a comment, I might borrow the same DVD twice.

I see… but how come 1001 movies?

Good question… ‘cause my 1001st movie will be “One Thousand and One Nights” also known as “the Arabian Nights.”


So you’ll watch Catherine Zeta-Jones “1001 Arabian Nights” as the 1001st movie, huh?

Yes, I’d love to.

Kato, tell me about your 594th movie.

Oh, it is called “The Scent of Green Papaya”—A Vietnamese movie.


“Actual Page”

I think I watched it at the Vancouver International Film Festival—a long time ago.

That’s where I watched this movie for the first time.


So, Kato, you viewed it for the second time, huh?

Yes, I did.

How come?

Well … if you see the above trailer, you hear Debussy’s “Clair de lune” or “moonlight” as background music.


I love this classic piece.

You watched it twice because you love the background music, didn’t you?

Of course not.  I watched it twice ‘cause this film is really a poetic rendering of a lowly woman’s love story.  You would love it, too.

Kato, how come you’re so sure?

‘Cause you love to play the piano.  Besides, you’re fond of love stories.


【Himiko’s Monologue】


I’m fond of love stories, too.
How about you?

A decade ago, I watched “Love Story.”


The theme music is beautiful—I love it better than any other music piece.

However, music is one thing; food is another.
Romance doesn’t fill my stomach.
I’m quite hungry now, and feel like eating sushi.

How about you?
Do you like sushi?
I’m sure you do.

Why don’t you make California rolls?
I’ll show you how to make those rolls.

An Easy Sushi Recipe

Now, you know how to do it.
Enjoy it to the hilt.

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.

The contemporary version, internationally known as “sushi”, was created by Hanaya Yohei (1799–1858) at the end of the Edo period in Tokyo.
Sushi invented by Hanaya was an early form of fast food that was not fermented (therefore prepared quickly) and could be conveniently eaten with one’s hands.

Originally, this sushi was known as Edomae zushi because it used freshly caught fish in the Edo-mae (Edo Bay or Tokyo Bay).
Though the fish used in modern sushi no longer usually comes from Tokyo Bay, it is still formally known as Edomae nigiri-zushi.

I like temaki sushi.
It is easy to make.
Here are the step-by-step instructions.
