Clicking on "Wataru" in the Gmail interface used to open G+ but no longer does. And Photos is now separate. Could this be the end? There are several G+ friends I will miss; if you can get yourself to use Facebook, please connect with me there.
After three years of hard pushing, Google has accepted the failure of Google+ and is starting to dismantle the overbearing social network.

And then there was Google Knol - sigh.

Easter doesn't really interest me, but great music does. It would be hard to find one piece of music with more greatness packed into 18 minutes than this Credo. And pity the sopranos who have to sing extremely intricate passages at the top of their voice range in the final few minutes especially.

Yay, any couples on the duck boats (supposedly a swan but...)

Top two timers are for coffee-making, bottom for pasta. Cat is a tissue holder. All on the side of our fridge.

You should go city trekking in Helsinki with this music on your Sony Walkman.

"What most never realised was that the nuns tendered for the business of running these homes received very generous government funding, equivalent to the average industrial wage, for each mother and child in their so-called care. In addition, they profited handsomely from the forced adoptions they transacted, which saw 97% of all non-marital children taken for adoption in 1967. " That this happened in my lifetime is beyond belief.

One of the comments in the thread mentions that this was not unknown to the world even a few generations ago and while "everyone's Irish" these days, this is an anomaly. The rule used to be "no dogs, no blacks, no Irish". They were the barbarians of Europe.

The late afternoon angle of the sun helped. I think the purple flowers (Hana daikon) were planted a few years ago by an old guy who lived nearby. He had his own large garden but often planted flowers along the banks. This is just downstream from where Dazai Osamu drowned himself (apparently the water used to be much deeper).

Have had this piece stuck in my head for at least 10 days and counting. Great music, though.
