Not a food blogger, but love me some grub

I'll cut straight to the point. This isn't really much of a blog; much less much of a food blog. But that doesn't necessarily mean I don't appreciate blogs, food, cooking, long naps and cracking my knuckles. So, I wanted to make my "blog" all nice and pretty like the cool people do. Maybe show off some of my splendiferous cooking. The problem, however, is that I don't own a digimatized camera. So I thought to myself, "I know, I'll dig up some old pics and scan them. I mean, I've been places; I've done things; I've eaten...stuff." So that's exactly what I did. I dug out the old shoebox and sifted through countless memories of days gone by. I ended up spending about an hour looking at photos and visiting old friends and places. So, I've chosen some of the loosely food-related pics, and I've decided to share them. Now, since I'm a sporadic poster at best I think its best if I avoid making an uber-post today - and instead post one photo at a time. So, this first one is a little boring. But we wouldn't want to rush into anything would we? I mean, we barely know each other! I've never met your parents, nor you mine. I have no idea what your favorite beverage is; what type of toothpaste you use; or why that cute little vein in your forehead always seems to show up when I'm giving you "suggestions" on how to properly slice a cucumber. So, you get the idea. Just look at the boring picture first - then, if things go well, we can progress and I'll show you more. So, here it is (the "boring" picture):
Many moons ago, my sister and I made a trek to Japan. While we were there we paid a visit to my college roommate, Kazuhiko. He took us to this huge greenhouse in his hometown where they grew strawberries. As you can see from the photo, they sorta knew what they were doing. There were just rows and rows of these beautiful, sweet, sugary strawberries. Stay tuned for further adventures in extreme dining!

Ok, I'll bite (get it? cause we're talking about... oh, never mind). Is the next picture about those mutant watermelons they grow in the midwest?

Hi Brent...

Also off topic. Well, off topic for your blog, but not off topic for the question you asked on my blog. Which was off topic, but you explained it, and it was caused by something I had written in an earlier post on my blog.

I think we are both fine.

Anyway, I was at Kobe Jogakuin from 88-91, so before your time. However, you might want to write to the Kobe College Corporation(KCC) in Chicago. Even though we were missionaries from the UCC, we were first chosen by the KCC. I've lost touch with most of the folks over time; but Michelle Hobby (may be married now) is a former teacher there who also sat on the board for a while. She might be the best one to help you.

Good luck!
