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 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".


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

On This Day in American History
On May 1, 1931, the Empire State Building is dedicated in New York. At the time, the 102-story structure is the world’s tallest skyscraper. The Empire State Building loses its title as world’s tallest building in 1972, when New York’s World Trade Center opens.

                        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 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.

2. "The Lion's Code of Ethics"
At the time I was one of the Lion's club members, especially when I was the chairman of a committee and editor-in-chief of the magazine published by the Lions Club 336-C-district, something made me to try to memorize it being able to make recitation of. It happened that we had the Cabinet sponsored the Cabinet Annual General Assembly where we invited the American President of the International Club Association, Mr. Woolard was the name.

I was told that the President's special favorite is "The Lions Code of Ethics", so that I tried to memorize it and, if ever have a chance, I could let him know of that big passion of mine as a "Lion" as passionate as he. Ha

In fact I had good opportunities of being with him at his visit as a chairman of the committee and the editor-in-chef of the magazine.
Apparently, he seemed surprised to know of this, saying "I love the code but not as much and good as I memorize it...". Later months, I had an honor of receiving his award.

                               
3.
"Youth "

This poem is very popular among Japanese regardless of their being business tops or the workers. A friend of mine gave me the copy, saying that "Yoshida"s way of life overlap with the way the poem writes". I was charmed with its contents so that I brought it  into one of my favorite recitations.

I remember that the first time I happened to know of this poem was at my twentieth when I came to know that the poem was
by Samuel Ullman who first appeared in the Readers' Digest in 1945, the year the World War ended, and years passed after my friend gave me a poem text. 

I also came to know that General
Douglas MacArthur, was one of the lovers of the poem. An interesting point and proud of about my recitations with this one is that at the end of  the poem of, I personally add some words to that. "...you may die young at eighty." turns to my own words of "...You may die young at a hundred!! in Yoshida's own words!".

By the way, General Douglas MacArthur is so familiar to the Filipinos. I found in The Manila Times an article about him entitled "
Behind every great man  The women in  the life of General Douglas MacArthur".
