Will 2011 Masters Help Ishikawa

Ryo Ishikawa is a name to root for at the 2011 Masters.

Not only is the 19-year-old a class act, but he has

agreed to donate all of his 2011 PGA earnings to

the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.

Winning the 2011 Masters could go along ways

in helping his homeland.

Ishikawa finished the first round with a score of 71,

which puts him at -1 following the first 18 holes.

That is good enough for a tie for 24th place along

with Tiger Woods, Fred Couples and three other golfers.

That means that Ishikawa still has some work left to do

if he hopes to move up the leaderboard at Augusta, which

will also move him up the money list.

Following the worst earthquake and tsunami to hit Japan,

things have not gotten any easier. After Ishikawa finished

his first round, he was dealt more devastating news,

as northeastern Japan was hit with an aftershock of

a 7.1 magnitude earlier in the day.

With all of that going on, it must be extremely difficult

to focus on golf. It would be for many 19-year-olds,

but this kid is special. He is mature far beyond his years,

and he continues to show his class, maturity and

unselfishness.

According to Joe Juliano of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Ishikawa could wind up donating a lot of money to

the relief fund in Japan.

"Ishikawa already has pledged every dollar of his

winnings in 2011 to the relief effort in his country,

which would be close to $2 million if he equaled

his earnings of last year," says Juliano.

"Even though his heart is there, he believes

he can inspire his countrymen by playing well."

Juliano also wrote what Ishikawa said through

his translator.

"I understand that people, especially in Sendai,

they are living in hell," Ishikawa said, "and

I would love to show the energy and power of what

golf can bring to those people."

Ishikawa is scheduled to tee off at 1:04 PM on Friday

afternoon in the second round, and he will look to

put up another solid score to remain in the hunt

at Augusta this weekend.

If you love the sport of golf, and especially enjoy

watching the Masters without a rooting interest,

this would be the time to put your support

behind Ishikawa. It is a great story.

Happy story, his original owner was found!!




















Happily going back to her :)

The dog that was found on drifting wreckage
on the 1st of April is going back to his original
owner!
She found the news about her dog and email with
his picture to the Coast Guard to claim that
she was the original owner.

When she arrived at the office, she required
to answer some questions and they decided
that she is certainly the owner.

Of course, she knew that she is the one,
when she called her name, "Van".

She &Van the dog were so happy to see
each other, again.

a dog was found!!!

I was very touched by these photos on
today's newspaper, and wanted to share
with you!

今日の新聞で感動した記事なんですが・・・


















While the Coast Guard' s helicopter was on massive
missing people search operation , they found a dog
over one mile offshore of Kesennuma city, Miyagi,
Japan today. The dog was drifting on the wreckage
of the roof and was scared of the sound of helicopter.
They approached to him by using a small boat and
successfully rescued!! (Yeah~!!!)

海上保安庁のヘリコプターが行方不明者の一斉捜索中に
気仙沼から1.6km沖に漂流する屋根の破片のうえにいる
犬を発見。ヘリコプターの音を怖がって犬が逃げ回るため
小さなボートを使って無事救助されました。


















According to the agency, He is very friendly and
wearing a collar. He loved biscuits that
officer gave him :) .
One of the officers kindly offered to keep him
until his real owner comes forward.
Isn't that wonderful!!!


人懐こくて元気もあり、首輪をしているので
飼い犬と思われます。隊員のくれたビスケットを
おいしそうに食べたそうです。
本当の飼い主さんが現れるまで隊員の一人が
預かってくれるそうです。よかったね!
Too good to be true!!!!





Ha Ha Ha
It's April fool's joke!
Gotcha!!!
