Japan’s 3rd biggest city boasts stunning architecture & unique eats

Traveling from Tokyo to Osaka by bullet train is about three hours and the train ride takes you through Japan’s beautiful countryside. Osaka is a large port city located in the southern center of Japan. It’s Japan’s third most populated city and is a major economic area. Although it was heavily destroyed during World War II, it was rebuilt and recovered quickly. Osaka’s nickname is Tenka no Daidokoro (nation’s kitchen) because of its reputation as a foodie’s paradise and its food exports to other countries and to other cities in Japan. Regional dishes include okonomiyaki (pan-fried batter cake), takoyaki (octopus in fried batter), udon (a noodle dish), and oshizushi (pressed sushi).

Now what?

Where do you need to start with your wedding planning? Based on my experience working with thousands of couples, the two most important things to know– two things you have to know before you spend a dime– are how many people you plan to invite, and how much money you have available to spend. Every aspect of your wedding planning is related to those two things: your budget and your anticipated guest count.

In the past two months, an unprecedented number of well-known men have been revealed as sexual harassers and fired or forced to resign from high-profile jobs. There has been lots of justified condemnation of the harassers as well as praise for the bravery of the people who reported them.

What did Heath Ledger, Princess Diana, and the singer Prince all have in common? Each of them died with a botched estate plan– or none at all– and they cost their families a fortune in money and grief as a result. The shock of Heath Ledger’s death from a drug overdose in 2008 was compounded by the discovery that his will left nothing to his only child, Matilda. Heath had prepared his will before Matilda was born, and the Australian actor never updated the document to provide for her.

Down with Lazy Dogs!

Our dogs have a unique lifestyle. They’re spoiled, but that’s not unusual. What makes the day-to-day different is that their dads both have jobs that allow them to go to work with their dogs.
