“We welcome all women riders of different age groups, ethnicities and backgrounds. We are a tight knit group of women who support each other on and off the road. Requirements are only that you display a desire to ride, be trustworthy, respectful toward all our other brothers and sisters and define this sisterhood to be an addition of your already existing family.
We do have a prospecting period which has been put in place for us to get to know you and you to get to know us. This lifestyle and Sisterhood may come easy to some but not to all.
As women we encourage other women to get out there and ride, have fun, get to know one another and expand your circle of friends.
The Vixens also spend a lot of time together not just riding but with our families doing other things off the road such as camping, days at the park and special holidays. This is not just a club, it’s our family.
So regardless of your interests if you enjoy riding we welcome one and all to join us. We ride all the time and whether 2 of us, 4 of us, or all of us you can bet we are having fun and that’s what it’s all about! “

MUJI offers good quality products such as a wide variety of stationeries, household items and apparel at reasonable prices. Mujirushi Ryohin,“MUJI” in Japanese means “no-brand quality goods”. The value of the MUJI product is in its effectiveness without the renowned brand or designer name. The essence of MUJI products lies in its simplicity, flexibility and modesty to fit different life styles and individual preferences. MUJI, originally founded in Japan, does not direct its products to be affected by any trends and “isms”, rather, aims to be universally relevant. MUJI products maintain reasonable price levels, not by compromising quality, but by avoiding the waste typical of many products’ manufacturing and distribution — unnecessary functionality, excess decoration, and needless packaging.

All right, here we go:
“The Liancourt Rocks … are a group of small islets in the Sea of Japan.”
Visiting these rocks for just 20 minutes, maximum, would involve a two lengthy flights* and then a 14-hour round-trip boat ride.

So it’s just like this one** (that used to be near AT&T Park?) that was put up by a Yelp three-star dentist from San Jose, who*** probably charges too much money if he has the spare cash to produce ineffectual billboards like these.
Which is fair enough.
Now the thing about the “East Sea” is that every sea is an east sea, right? So we should rename the Atlantic Ocean the East Ocean because that’s how it seems from our perspective? And without Japan, the Sea of Japan would just be the Pacific Ocean, right?
All right, I’ll just sit back and wait for the invasion of the Liancourt Rocks, which is never going to happen, but if it did, it would go a little something like this.

“The Liancourt Rocks, also known as Dokdo or Tokto (독도/獨島, literally “solitary island”) in Korean, and Takeshima (たけしま/竹島?, literally “bamboo island”) in Japanese, are a group of small islets in the Sea of Japan.”
* Crew Resource Management optional?
** Significant? No. Nobody cared about the World Baseball Classic, 90% of San Franciscans have no knowledge of it.
*** Am I supposed to know what “Top Best *8*” means? I don’t.
I’ll ask you, have you ever been to a bad Cirque du Soleil?
Now, supposedly we had a bad one blow through town a few years back down at the Cow Palace. Your local MSM Arts crew was non-enthusiastic – not all of them wanted to go review it, see? So comped tickets made it all the way down to people involved with lesser blogs, such as your truly.
And I’ll tell you, C du S in that ugly, ugly Daly City concrete blockhouse was awesome. They had like 17 bits to do and 16 of them were very impressive or better. And keep in mind that this was an older show that was put on not under the big tent.
So now we have a brand new show coming to town starting November 15th, 2013.
The time to buy tickets for it is right now. You’ll thank yourself later on.
