Frog Blog
My kids said they wanted to catch some frogs, so I said okay. However, they caught too many, so I told them to release a few.

What do you think of frogs? I don`t mind them, but my colleague said she hates them. She said when she was young , she came home and there was a frog on the door, so she couldn`t open it, so she rang the doorbell until her mum came, and she told her mum to open the door. lol.

Tom Yum Gai

スレッド
Tom Yum Gai
Do you know the dish 'Tom Yum Goong'? 'Goong' means 'shrimp' in Thai. However, I don`t like* shrimp, so when I lived in Thailand, I asked restaurant cooks to use 'gai' (chicken) instead of 'goong'. This is an unusual request in Thailand. However, I found this 'Tom Yum Gai' packet curry in the supermarket, so maybe a lot of people are like** me, and prefer chicken to shrimp.

Grammar
* (don`t) like __ = _が好き(ではない)
** am/are/is (not) like __ = _のように(_のようではない)

Riding back from Tarumi, I stopped to look at a shrine, and I found this tiny glass bottle. It looks old (it has thick seams (継ぎ目), & the glass contains small bubbles). I think it`s for eye drops (目薬).

Tarumi Tour Time

スレッド
Tarumi Tour Time
I caught a one-car train from Ogaki to a small town in the mountains called Tarumi, then rode my bicycle back from there. I stopped to have lunch by the Neo River, under a rail bridge. The train crossed it while I was there, so I was able to take a nice photo. There was a lot of nice scenery, so I often stopped riding and took photos. I want to go there again.

Grammar
stop + 動詞ing = (動詞)〜するのを止める
stop to + 動詞 = (動詞)〜するために止まる

Last weekend I watched the original (1986) 'Top Gun' on TV with my kids. My first son really enjoyed it, so I might take him to see the new sequel, 'Top Gun: Maverick' at the cinema. I hear it`s good. I haven`t been to the cinema for ages*.

Although I enjoyed seeing Top Gun again, now I have the song, “Danger Zone” stuck in my head. lol

- for/in ages = a long time. (このフレーズでは、age = 時代, ages = 長い間(時代) )

Milk Bottles, Milk Glass
I found some more bottles. The ones at the back are milk (or drinking yoghurt?) bottles. The two at the front are maybe for cream or lotion. I learned that this kind of white glass is called 'milk glass'. I didn`t know that. On the left is some kind of ceramic insulator.

Vocabulary:
- 遺失物取扱所 = Lost and Found Office

Old Spoon

Old Spoon
On Monday I went bottle digging in Sekigahara. I found a lot of old cans, & some new bottles, but no old bottles. I was disappointed. However, I found this interesting old aluminium spoon. It says 'スリ切約三瓦'. The logo is for Meiji Company. I think it`s a measuring spoon for powdered milk.

Vocabulary
- aluminium “アルミニアム” (UK, Australia) = aluminum “アルーミナム” (US)
