Footsteps Joomla is Dead, Long live Serendiptiy Sep 28

Well its taken about 3 weeks, but I’ve finally moved all the stuff from the Blogger blog site and all the newer stuff from Joomla into Serendipity, so its all here under one roof so to speak.

Interestingly its coming up to two years since I started blogging about life in Japan, and wow such much has happened.  I really wanted to move all the Joomla stuff over (and was really worried as the front end had crashed), and lucky for me I was still able to get into the administration and retrieve all the entries.  They were all the postings I had done during my recovery from Cancer so are very important to me.  Looking back on them it certainly was (and still is) quite a ride.

So now, its all in one place for anyone who wants to read it all!  (boring!).

A small reminder Sep 26

There a many aspects of living in Japan, a few I’ve covered in previous blogs and others that now just strike me as completely normal that I’ve forgotten that about the other world reality. (like trains running of time).

Exclusive Invitation. Sep 20

I was just talking to a really great friend on MSN and starting working on an anology of cancer survival. Why am I going on about this subject, well, if you want membership to this particular house party that is something you really need to undestand.


The Shimoda House Sep 20

One of the reasons that I switched my site to Serendipity is that I installed it as part of a new subsite for the house remodelling at Shimoda. A really great friend of mine has purchased an old house down there (150 years old at last count). When you see the first pic’s of it, well our thoughts were Soweto. It really is the worst house in a great area. The Sotoura valley has this lovely little community that we have become familiar with over the last year and really loved.

So now my entries will be split up abit as I will be writing about me and Shimoda. The site is

Have a read and hope you enjoy. Here is picture from the new underwater camera. Pentax Optio W30 – bloody brillant.
