We are facing a great number of things, thoughts or events everyday. When I become awake and get up in the morning, I will be facing my daughters and a son. I will get my arms round their body with love. It is winter. While I make my automobile run, I have to be facing slipping icing road.tree I am facing a number of sort of questions at work. I make them clear one by one. Suddenly my head officer has a desire to see me.
I go to his room. and I have a short time facing his room's door. What does he see me for?
He said a leaves of papers which I gave him last week is no good and make it again.
Backing to my seat, I am facing the paper. It seems to be complete. Where is bad point?
It becomes near a night time. Today I don't have a power of mind to make the paper again any more.
I make a stop to be facing the paper. And I go back to my house. Facing a door, I make a bell go off.
Sound of unlock the door comes to my ear and it is opened.
I am facing my little girls and son.The view is very peace and I am happy.

"Animation" is not Basic word. If you are in need of a sense of the word, go and have a reading Ryotasan's Daybook
From years of 1990 to 2000, Japanese *animation* was in top position between most of countries. Specially, in America, deep lovers of Japanese animation were running round to a number of stores to get VCDs or sheets of paintings of animation.
In earlier time, such materials was very rare and unable to get only in the stores which were against law.
But as time goes by, Japanese animation lovers have got an increase in number of persons.
Now a number of young makers of motion pictures are good effected by Japanese animation.
Do you have a memory of motion picture "MATRIX"and following ones which are made as "MATRIX"s brothers?
The chief makers of "MATRIX"s, who were Wachowski brothers, said they were effected by Japanese animation as well.

Pleasure of Jazz

My pleasure is to have a drink of whisky hearing jazz before I have a sleep at night. I have a number of loving players. Specially Miles Davis is God of jazz. Why jazz has much attraction to everyone? Most of jazz play become free from a fixed note of based songs. Note now you get through from ears is only one which will never be played.
So, in jazz, it is thought the play before persons is better than play in a recording room.

British or American?

C.K.Ogden, who was the producer of Basic English, was from Great Britain. That would be one of why some of words in Basic English was lettered in British way.
Today the words are right to be taken place by American way.The reason is not because American but because the letterings have harmony with sounds. The words Ryota-san put like "behaviour," "colour," "grey," "harbour," "humour" and "plough" are, in their lettering, not are not simple and are against sounds a bit.

Discussion goes on

C.K.Ogden, who was one of producers of Basic English, put some lists of international words. I have an opinion that it is better to have a discussion about a special list "additional words being tasted as international" because it has been let be for over 70 years.
On Maling List of Basic English the dicsussion is going on.

I put my opinion about the Basic word 'humor'. *1, *2
Ryota-san kindly gave his opinion on this question from a wider view.
His opinion is clear for me. Even we say "good humor" or "bad humor", though we are not conscious, the wordings are based on it's root sense "condition of mind". It would be wiser for us to have a grip a of root sense of the word anytime.

My writing "What humor do you have today?" seems to be wrong. How about "How is your humor today?" ?
