Last fall, I ordered a Hobonichi Techo 2015 (twelve month), complete with a Hobonichi cover, a plastic cover, and a few accessories. And although the cover was fun, I didn't like that the only way to keep it closed was by using a pen through the loops.It arrived from Japan fairly quickly, and I opened the box with great anticipation. I wasn't going to risk losing a fountain pen that way.
Originally only in Japanese, the planner is now available in English (but see below) and can be ordered through the Hobonichi (English) store.Apparently the company offers the Cousin only in Japanese.The Hobonichi uses Tomoe River Paper, a high-quality, super-thin, fountain-pen-friendly paper, which is one of the reasons so many people love this planner.Their fear was that cousin marriages would cause us to breed our way back to frontier savageryor worse."You can't marry your first cousin," a character declares in the 1982 play Brighton Beach Memoirs.Moreover, for generations the Rothschildfamily had been inbreeding almost as intensively as European royalty, without apparent ill effect.Despite his own limited gene pool, Albert, for instance, was an outdoorsman and the seventh person ever to climb the Matterhorn.The rules are designed, in part, to facilitate the marriage being valid in other countries.Question: Dearest Non-Expert, I recently reconnected with my brother’s wife’s cousin, who I originally met in college before my brother’s wedding.It's a big day for North Fork - the first railroad train is coming to their new station.Riding as passengers are the Mc Cains and a Japanese nobleman and his servant who are visiting the West to learn more about the United States.
