Sheep Get Their Own Luxury Hotel .....

..... only in Japan, folks.

Wonder whether the squeezings are better or less-than-acceptable as a result. I have always held that the ruddy life on the Yorkshire moors adds to the robustness of the Fat. :wink:

Thanks for sharing, Wendell! That really is sort of "odd".

The Japs can copy a car but not the Fat.

Japanese have had to mold a society of many people on a small group of islands. Buddhism works well as you can retreat inward to look outward.
Contact with any animal larger than a small dog is very rare.
When I worked the Grand Canyon a japanese tourist on a mule going into that seperate world was probably stranger than future contact with Extra Terrestial intelligence will be.
It sounds odd, but a better emotional release VS building Mitsubishi Zeros :lol:

Sounds like something from a Haruki Murakami novel.

Interesting. Wendell, here's something for you: sheep racing on Sark. The races take place every year, usually in July. We've attended a few times and can report that none of the sheep were injured. Unfortunately we won't be able to attend this year's races, as we'll be going there at the end of May, which is too early.
