(Finishing up a few remaining posts before we start our next trip.)

On my first visit to Japan, with a friend, we had the best meal of the trip and the worst meal of the trip within 24 hours of each other. We'd gone to Koya-san, the temple complex, and stayed in a temple for two nights and

(Resurrecting a post that’s been sitting in the Drafts folder for almost 2 years now, and testing a new crossposting plugin at the same time.)

We are not social people. Well, okay, we’re selectively social. We have our groups of friends that we see now and then, but we don’t generally seek out new acquaintances. This will become important in a bit.

But we do like to cook. When looking for things to do on this trip, Stephanie found this cooking class that covers several Japanese dishes, and includes a main dish of actual Kobe beef. We figured, “Sounds cool!” and signed up.

Pull The Football - Save the World by [personal profile] rachelmanija.

Are you worried about nuclear war? I am too. Keep reading for a way to stop it with one simple action.

Maybe you feel small and powerless. But many snowflakes make an avalanche. If we all move in the same direction, we'll be unstoppable. We will only fail if we choose not to act.

Trump has the power to order a pre-emptive nuclear strike for any reason - or no reason at all. He's always shadowed by a man with a briefcase of codes, called the "nuclear football," to enable him to launch nuclear missiles at any time. It would take less than five minutes from his order to the missiles being launched, and no one could stop him. Republican Senator Bob Corker says Trump is leading us into World War III. I believe him.

But we don't have to stand by and let it happen. Let's pull away that football!

Both House and Senate have bills to prevent the President from launching a pre-emptive nuclear strike without a congressional declaration of war. They're both called the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017. Passing those bills may literally save the world.

See link for further details. Please signal-boost if you are so inclined.

[personal profile] estara created a DW feed from the Wordpress RSS feed of the travel blog, so if you don't want to follow us over there, via email, or via Twitter or Facebook, you can subscribe to the feed. Note: I won't see any comments posted there (I could set up an alert, but I'd have to manually subscribe to each and every post, and that's just not happening), so you'll have to post any comments you have over on the blog, Facebook, or Twitter.


Crossposting woes

Looks like I can't find any services or plugins that crosspost from Wordpress to Dreamwidth right now as my old standby plugin no longer works, and the only other plugin I can find also doesn't work.

Which means that if you want to follow Toby and I on our trip to Europe coming up in a few weeks, you're going to have to use one of these, unless I find something else:


If you'd rather have notifications sent to your inbox, you can sign up using the form in the sidebar of the travel.mushtee.com blog and it'll send you an email every time either of us posts something there.

Anyway, given how little traffic happens here nowadays, I suspect not that many people will be missing it. :)
