The last two episodes of NCIS(Deja Vu and Sister City) have sucked. I really hope the break they took this week was to rethink where they're going with the series.

With summer on the way, I am reminded once again of the many things I miss about being in Japan.

You could travel far and wide and find delicious iced green tea bottled in vending machines all over. The brewing process was such that the bitter after taste of the green tea was non-existant, and few things were more refreshing on a hot summer day.

The good news is that I found a process for brewing it online. I recommend method #3 on this page and implore you not to use sugar(or any other sweetener) or milk/cream if you brew some for yourself.
(For Iced Sencha, we highly recommend "Sencha Premium", "Sencha Superior", or Sencha Fukamushi Superior. You can order "Sencha Premium" by clicking the In Cart button below.) In Japan, we have been enjoying iced green tea for many years! This tradition is as unique to Japan as fine Japanese ...

My new book, Thing Explainer, comes out today! To celebrate, here's a small game.

Along the way it can collect coins, and then deposit ...

Okay. Do you remember that bit about weekly posts on Friday? Well, life (work) has changed on me and that doesn't quite look like it is going to be happening, so I have to rearrange my schedule. I still plan to get things started up here soon, but I don't k...

A little bit of satire for your reading pleasure.
The average human being will create 102 tons of trash in his/her lifetime. But why be average? Here are 10 ways you can maximize the amount of trash you produce. 1. Only drink water out of single-use bottles. You should be drinking 64 ounces of water each day, and if you can drink all of that out of

I arrived for a new patient visit. After filling out some paperwork, some of which was a tad redundant, I was very thoroughly X-rayed. Everyone was very kind. After the x-ray, I was directed to a dentist's chair where I had a short wait for the hygienist who came in and check the gap between my gums and teeth. She was efficient, but didn't appear to be rushing things. The dentist came in shortly after she left and went over my x-rays with me to explain what was going on. After the dentist I was very well taken care of by the billing staff. Everything was well explained. The facility was limited in what it could do, which is why I have just awarded 4 stars. That said, they didn't an excellent job with what they had.

I have eaten ramen in the United States, and have even made it myself, but after tasting the ramen at this ramen shop, I deny that what I have had in America can even be called ramen. The full flavoured soup, topped with green onions, some meat, and one or two other ingredients I didn't recognize, surrounded well cooked noodles for a bowl beyond compare. While, at the time, I lacked the Japanese word for delicious, I still think it doesn't suffice. I immediately belted out すごいです。(the meaning is similar to amazing) To make things even better, I had some superb fried rice while I waited for my ramen to cool a bit. I've never enjoyed a meal so much. This was truly spectacular. There is no traditional Japanese seating to be found, but sitting at the bar allowed you to watch the cook as he prepared the food. My excellent meal of fried rice and ramen sets me back about 900¥($11), but if there were such a thing as fine dining in ramen, this would be it.

Poets on the Square represents the best coffee shop I have been to since I left home in January of 2011. Poets is the type of coffee shop for people who like coffee and they prove this by making their coffee drinks deliver that coffee flavour unlike Starbucks. What they did right: > One can taste coffee in their coffee drinks. > They provide small snacks and other foods to complement your coffee, without loosing focus on the coffee. > They provide tea, smoothies, and other drinks so that one can hangout with coffee hating friends at Poets. > Extraordinary customer service. > They have a broad selection of high quality flavourings. > They have adequate seating and tables. > Their hours are top notch for a Cookeville business. > They have a good atomosphere, mostly. What they did wrong: > Iced Coffee drinks and Smoothies are all Big Train powdered mixes.(This is why they lost a star.) > While this didn't have a major effect on my rating, there is no drive thru.(They couldn't have one if they wanted it.)

The Turn Around Juice bar is an excellent place to grab some of the freshest Juice, most excellent soup, and a place to create a salad that many restaurants would like you to believe you could prepare in their own establishments. The Juice is made from fresh fruits and vegetables, some of which are organic and they are all combined and juiced for you on the spot. Don't worry though, the people who work there are dedicated to making sure you like your juice. The soups are made with care by the owner's wife, and a spoonful in your mouth will let you know that she has soup making skills that few ever acquire. The salad bar is also a treat. The fruit and vegetables are top notch, and abundant in variety. Here is where a jalepeno and strawberry salad can be whipped together alongside other more common salads. The environment is interesting, and they did a remarkable job making their building inviting. You can connect to the free WiFi while you eat and enjoy a refreshing juice or smoothie. The prices are great, too. Matter of fact, my only real issue is the hours The Turn Around maintains. Want some refreshment on a Saturday? They're closed. Furthermore, late night wanderers like myself will probably have trouble getting there before they close at 7 Monday through Thursday, or 5 on Friday. In their defense, however, the family, and only the family runs this establishment, and I wouldn't expect them to run this place for 60 hours a week.

Thai food is not my specialty, so I can't make any statements as to the authenticity of the food, but I will express my likes and dislikes. I began my meal with the Crispy Tofu, a selection that I was quite pleased with. It came with a sweet chili sauce that was subtly sweet and subtly sour. The sauce was good, but nothing phenomenal. I did enjoy the tofu very much. My main course, the Mango Curry, was good, with the only shortcomings being that the rice was a little dry and the curry was very heavy. Desert came in the form of a black rice pudding that was pleasant, but not worth ordering. I drank an Abita root beer along with my meal, which was by far the best root beer I have had. That along with a steady stream of water was all that I needed to complement the meal. As for presentation, everything was delivered on classy white ceramic dishes, with quality cutlery that excels beyond that of most restaurants. My dinner was a little more expensive than what I am used to, but I ate very well considering the fact. I've had lunch here before and it was quite the deal. At any rate, if you are around, I would recommend the noodles, they are very good.
