WTF am I going to do in Tokyo

Visiting Tokyo May 19th to May 20th. Title says it all!

My only plans are to visit Tokyo Sea Life Park which is in a park near Disneyland, sorta. (No, I'm not going to Disneyland). Other than that I just want to see what the city is like. Is their version of Times Square worth seeing?

The scrap value of the equipment is equal to the removal costs. Pays a little better than most farming and you do no work. They also pay the property tax and there is a inflation increase as well.

A family walks into a hotel. The dad approaches the counter, and says, "I hope the porn channel is disabled."

Music Room ideas

Hey, guess what? Its almost me time!

With the daughter married and ready to have a child, and the "baby's" room almost done and my garage almost done I am going to be able to get all the tools and stuff out of the basement and into the garage.

That means I can move the pool table from the sun room to the basement.
