I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that the next year will be all that you hope it will be.
I have found a four week teaching job in Niigata Prefecture, over on the west coast, so I will be there for the month of February. Later this week, I will check my netbook computer and verify that I can continue blogging from the campus there. If not, I am sure that I can work out something. It should be interesting as I will be teaching only three hours a day and will have weekends free. The area has large amounts of snow but I should be able to do some exploring, and picture taking too.

The first picture is our Christmas tree. We have a tradition in our family of making each Christmas tree. This started when we first moved to Japan and could not buy a tree. Each year we made something different. This tree is made from pieces of cloth hung in the window at the end of our dining room table. By the time that we started to open presents on the morning of Dec 24, the pile of pictures had grow substantially.

I hope that you, the reader, have as wonderful a Christmas as I had this year!
