  44. For some reason the Asain culture fascinates me. I guess because when I was a kid my best friend's mother was Japanese and I loved going to her house, especially for dinner! I have also read so many great books on Asian culture like The Joy Luck Club and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Thanks for the chance.

Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
