Taking a deep breath
We are now breathing more easily again as the 100 degree heat and high humidity has moved westward leaving us with two fine days of pleasant golfing weather. Work is progressing on the Japan slides. We'll whet your appetite a bit below. When you see those kites flying around a Japanese home, it means that there are sons in the family. One difference from the midwest is that most fields are quite small. You can see a fairly large rice paddy here, surrounded by fairly small wheat plots. Rice paddies actually come in many sizes. Not too many are larger than this and often they are barely the size of a modest garden.
