The editor of this web site, Yuki Yoshida(Hereafter call with the subject of "I", have played what I call "The first, the second and the third stages of Life back in Japan as a top business person. On February 1st, 2009, I began, at the age of late 78, to have what I call "The fourth stage of life" in this soil of the Republic of the Philippines with some aims and reasons, which the visitors would come to find by visiting this Web from time to time.(September 10, 2016)

The above photos, the left is the one taken coincidentally right on the very day and moment when the Huge and dreadful earthquake hit in Eastern Japan on March 11, 2011. The right one on day when my passport renewed in the Japanese Embassy on 11. September 2014, with another termination date of Ten years, 2024, meaning I would be 93-year-old when its time comes for the next renewal with another termination of 103 years old! Yes! the necessity would come again! Ha.

Well, someone is saying "What about the newest and the latest photos? My answer is simple. My everyday life in 24-hour is in "Suteteko(long drawers) & half sleeve shirt", not suitable for formal appearance! It might be when our family move to our scheduled own newly built beautiful house and lot in "Santa Rosa Heights" in a few years in a nice and beautiful big office of my own with suitable hero's costumes for the photo here, yes!

The followings are some of my writing records in English publicly opened. The Japanese editions of this kind are far the more, though....

The above photos are the ones taken in around 2001, when this website was first published by myself with minor knowledge of editing, not using the ready-made form of website editing. 

I was then in the third stage of my life as a business consultant, maverick consultant firm, LOGITANT, Inc., meaning "Logistic and Logical consultant. Logistic comes from my own experience of managing a trucking industry company, years later developing into what I called "Seven subsidary group companies". "Logic" came from my personal life philosophy of "logical thinking and behavior".

The photos above, the second and third from left are taken in what I called SOHO, small office and home office. The fourth is the one depicting "My  9-minutes-speech in Las Vegus in the International conference of SAM(The Society for Advancement of Management)". I was then the president of Hiroshima branch chapter of the SAM. The award was "Material Handling Award". The attendants were some 300, business persons, University professors and the graduate students one third each. My dear memory was "Huge standing ovation with whistles occurred continued even after returned to my table on the stage!!

Thus after spending my first , second and third stages of my life as a top business person, I am in this soil of the Philippines playing what I call "The fourth life" as a........is the most interesting life story beginning. What is it? or what it will be?...is the very things depicting in this website!

One thing that is worthy of depicting here and I feel proud of is that a trucking firm which has been my longest time client in 16-year before leaving Japan is still and will be so as long as I live and able to take my responsibility of sending "Yoshida's Message"(A4 full) for the company's monthly "Safety Meeting".

By the way, as the visitors see, this website is full of blogging and photos concerned.
"Data Size"(Editing volume) shows Yoshida's is the biggest! exceeding the top Rakuten!! My pride would be "If edited in a form of 'book', it would some tens of books!

The volume of this website is expanding more and more each day!
"Internet information & Yoshida blogs" is the one that is helping with the items as you see No.6566 as of now! The volume of the writings would be as big as a few dozens of books!

Finally, My satisfaction of this website editing work  would be that this sure gives me the best opportunities of my preventing senile! Ha ha.......
                     

Note;Due to the editing soft changed, the editor is finding hard time catching up with the new one with much delay and errors....

Sorry, this column is only in the Japanese language. However, the photos  attached are the visual understanding of the Event, so that I try to paste them as its editing goes on,  trying to make up what is called "Illustrated Stories".
I take and accept this opportunities of learning histories regardless of time, nationalities and places. The photos attached to the column number many as seen. Those who cannot read Japanese may imagine what the column wants to deliver by taking a look at the photos.

The photos attached the Events, for example, number many, making the visitors can grasp the events contents in visual way, so to speak. The below are the ones I selected for this day Events;

By the way, This column started from April 21, 2014. When you click "Today's events picked from Wikipedia", you could imagine how the editing way developed as time goes on.

                       Internet information & Yoshida blogs
This column was newly posted on March 9, 2012, with 6766 items as of this day with my blogs and sometimes with photos concerned to the articles which I get from the Google. However, I really regret that this main column is edited only in Japanese. I have been totally occupied with this column editing with many articles brought by the Internet newspapers, newsletters and magazines, recently mainly with business magazines, though.    

Special note:Take a look at No.1195, for instance, which features the article & photo with Philipina nurse, Ms. Menchu Sanchez, with President's honorable praising words, standing beside the First Lady Michel.

The column is unique, I would say with confidence, in that I take up information from the internet newspapers and magazines which I find meaningful and significant to myself and my readers, so that I copy them in my own re-editing files with my own blogs on the issue.

My blogs are the very thing that I take pride in expressing what I think on the issue, sometimes in a humorous way or sarcastic or even negative to the article writer. My readers would get double-information on the issue, so to speak.
Therefore, I decided to concentrate my writing motivation to this column by closing the long-continued columns of "Hitorigoto(Monologue) & Tokudane(Exclusive)" (All in Japanese)by keeping them in a form of "The past records", which are so many and much.

I take a sort of a Guts in being able to say that all the articles and opinions I have written up this day, when edited in a book style, would be as many as, say, a couple of dozen books!!

                                  "1959 Barbie makes her debut."(HISTORY)

                    The party piece of this Editor, Yoshida
The following is only an example of what I have in personal policy or what are called "personal philosophy" or the like. Others are supposed to be translated into English someday, though) 

I am fond of English language. My history of English language studying dates back when I was in night-time high school. I was obliged to give up higher education because of my father's early death right after the Hiroshima atomic bomb drop.

The followings are the one I am proud of being able to make recitation of in good memory in a way as a native speaker or even better(laugh). This is the one I could be proud of and being able to make better than the natives, yes!. You will be astonished when hear it!

Oh I remember back in Japan some years ago, I happened to watch the CNN on the Day 11-9 ceremony, an American politician made that recitation as good as I!(laugh again)


At the end of this top page, let me introduce something about my personal hobby for English language learning and practices. The following five English notes are the ones I love to make recitation of with loud voice as good as the native English speakers.

The motivation  for this habit is very interesting, and let me explain;
Back in Japan when I was 40-year-old or so, I began to take a morning nice and hot bath after more than an-hour-physical exercises until good amount of perspiration, which, I thought, was good for a person who cannot enjoy the shower after playing the golf.


Good amount of perspiration after exercises and more in hot bath tub brought me splendid feeling, so that I hit upon an idea of using the time in the bathtub in a more efficient way, and that is to make recitations of English speech or the poem or the like while enjoying nice and hot tub!

By the way, dipping into nice and hot bathtub is no more needed for me in this tropical country. My style all through the day and night is "Suteteko(middle-long light pants) & short shirts style" from morning through night.

Well, let me explain my English recitation hobbies. The first one is "The Lord's Prayer", and continued on with such as;
"Lord's Prayer", "The Lion's Code of Ethics", "Lincoln's Gettysburg's Address", "Youth", "My Way". This takes about 8-minute, which I found it was good enough time before the perspiration came out(In Japan with nice and hot bath tub, but no more here in a tropical country, though.)

My recitation items and the motivations are as follow;


1. "Lord's Prayer "
I was born in a Buddist family. When I was in high school(Night time one because of my destiny of abandoning higher education after my father's early death after the A-bomb, to take care of my family.

It happened that I won the first prize in the English speech contest for Hiroshima prefecture high school. The title was "How I've fought my way out." This was the beginning of my long way of life benefited by my English knowledge and human relationship brought by that.

The biggest one was my experience with an American lady missionary and English teacher in Hiroshima Mission school, Miss Anderson by the name, who came to me at the contest with her student girl, saying "Congratulations, Mr.Yoshida. May I introduce my student?...". That was  the beginning of my association with the missionary and her student, Miss Murakami.....

The former, Miss Anderson, to my way to become a Christian with "The Lord's Prayer" close to my life, and the latter, in later years, become my life benefactor.

One of the great lessons I learned from Miss Anderson was that "The polio is the greatest gift given me by God who wants me to show people how a man can be that strong if he has faith in God. This was the beginning of my lifelong association with the Lord's Prayer.

By the way this happening brought another life-valued opportunity of getting associated with her student, Miss Yoshino Murakami, who in later years, became my life-long, unforgettable and precious friend girl I ever knew. She happened to be a daughter of Hiroshima University professor and later year became the president of the Mission high and university, and more, becoming the go-between for my wedding, which ended in separation years later(Ha).

Continuing to write about her(Miss Murakami) more, let me tell the visitors about my essay contest winner article titled "My eternal platonic sweetheart and benefactor in my life". If you click the link, there comes the copy of that Article (though in Japanese), which was the one I got the prize for "one of the 55 items selected as "good works" among 717 applied. The contest was sponsored by a publishing company in Tokyo under the title of "My first love, first HE and first HER". The applicants were from teenagers to eightieth. The below far the right is the cover opened backside, in which my essay appears on P.235.

Well, sorry for getting off the line in my writing about how I got to be closely associated with the Lord's Prayer.
