One of the not too numerous born and raised Californians with a
mixed heritage (well, kinda). I am part Japanese and part Chinese,
second generation American-born on both sides. A refugee from Los

collection of watches, selfless contributions by others
The six things I could never do without

I need to pare down my list...I get only five more?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...whether there is someone out there who can explain the
algorithms used to determine the Match/Friend/Enemy rankings
...why people use the phrase "tuna fish" instead of just "tuna". Is
there still a large segment of the population that does not know
that tuna are fish???
...whether at the end of my time here I will have made a
significant (no attributation required) contribution to making my
small piece of the world a little better than it was before I
