#226- Happy Crowd at GALLERIE SPARTA

My fabulous friend & Celebrity Psychic, Mr. Ron Bard ( invited me to Jane Seymour - Red Carpet Opening Night Reception at GALLERIE SPARTA ( on October 3rd.

Ron is a fun person to hang out with. He has many fabulous friends in town.

His great friend who is an owner of GALLERIE SPARTA, Mr. Stephan Sparta (he is also an architect & an interior designer has many fabulous friends as well.

I had a fabulous time with them at this party.

Ron, Stephan and Jane brought “Happy Crowd” at GALLERIE SPARTA.


Ms. Jane Seymour is so beautiful and sweet that she walked around and said hi to everyone.

She welcomed everyone with hearty shake hands.

Her paintings are amazing. Most of her paintings are flowers. (I love flowers!)

There are so many pretty pink in her art works. (I love pink!)

Especially, my favorite painting is “Portrait of Rose”.

Stephan: You can have the “Portrait of Rose”. It is only $ 2,950.00 and you can pay in 2 payments.

Me: After my book published, I can afford it :)

Jane’s paintings show her beauty inside and out and her beautiful positive energy. I love her style.


I have met fabulous people at this party.

Beautiful people make beautiful art works: Mr. Hal Swanson who is an architect and his business partner Mr. Dan Ollis ( 

Unique ideas create stunning art works: Mr. Leon Leigh who is a sculptor.

Passion brings passionate art works: Mr. Stuart Kusher who is a sculptor.

Entrepreneur mind + Artistic mind = Great philosophy:  Mr. Alan Barrows who is a fine artists’s agent & collection advisor (

Funny + Fun energy brings business: Mr. Bryan C. Kim who is a president of MILA D’OPIZ (Swiss cosmetics company /

Beautiful + Stylish energy brings beautiful jewelry: Ms. Rachele Beretta who is a custom made jewelry designer of Lale’s Jewelry.


Rachele said, “Everyone should be so lucky to meet Ron Bard”.

Yes, she is right.

Many people wanted to meet and talk with Ron. He has a great power!

Yes, I found a lucky penny in front of this place (I was standing next to Ron outside, in front of the gallerie, because he was smoking a cigar / the lucky penny was under the place where Ron was standing!).

Me: Oh… I found the lucky penny!

Ron: Is that the face side?

Me: Yes! It’s a lucky penny!

Ron: Keep it!

Me: Oh… you gave me luck, Ron!!! Thank you!

My mother (who lives in Tokyo, Japan) told me on the phone after I came home from this event, “You didn’t give the lucky penny to Ron? You should’ve given it to Ron!”  Ah… Ron has enough luck… I need this luck so badly… :)

Find a lucky penny means you are being protected against any evil energy, and you can use it as a lucky charm. Do you believe in this?  I do!

I believe that Ron is my lucky friend! He has such a fabulous power. He is a truly psychic.


Anyway, I really had a fabulous time at Jane Seymour - Red Carpet Opening Night Reception at GALLERIE SPARTA.

#271-Why people fight?

Why do human beings keep fighting with each other or fighting wars?

About profit?

About territory?

About religion?

About ethnicity?

About statism?

About collectivism?

Why can’t we talk instead of fight (war)?

People are trying to change others…

People don’t want to change for others…

People think “I am right, you are wrong”…

I was thinking about “how can we resolve issues of terrorism and war in this world, can we talk instead of fighting?”

And then I realized “I need to think about my issue first” (since I moved into my apartment in Montrose one year ago)… yes, I have an issue about my living situation… my upstairs neighbor (64 years old woman who is not working) has been waking me up every night (around 11:15pm, 12:15am and 1:15am) with loud squeezing footsteps (it sounds not normal & regular footsteps) for one year… I had to call police twice, and I fought with this neighbor twice…

I tried to go to bed at the same time when this neighbor goes to bed… it doesn’t work (for me late night ene…

#257- SLUT? in L.A.

Do you know about “The Slut”?I mean, “eggslut”?

If you don’t, you will enjoy my column on Senken-Shimbun (major Japanese fashion business newspaper) website.

Here is my translation of my column into English from Japanese.

Title of this column: From L.A. “Slut?”

Since a few years ago, I have been noticing the egg shape sign of “eggslut” ( on the way to L.A. fashion district in downtown Los Angeles.

“Slut” means in Japanese “bimbo”, “whore”, “hooker” and “slut”.
“eggslut (a woman is sleeping around with eggs)”? This shocking name of the restaurant has been bringing curiosity to me.

This restaurant (“eggslut”) has a counter at the “Grand Central Market” which is also famous as a tourist popular spot, and when I drive by this place my curiosity about this place is getting bigger and bigger, because I always see a long line in front of…

#272- Happy employees make happy customers

As you know many department stores (in U.S. and Japan both) are struggling these days due to consumer’s life style (online shopping, cheap fast fashion stores and discount stores).

In general people want to have a convenience life style and want to purchase reasonable price products.

Last October when I bought gift items (for myself and friend who visited this store together) at RAINS in Ojai, I was very surprised by that RAINS has a complimentary wrapping service (all Japanese department stores have a complimentary wrapping service in Japan). I was smiling on the way back to my home after I shopped at RAINS.

This spring when I heard about some Japanese department stores in country side are closing business and their towns became like a ghost town, I thought I want to find out why RAINS is doing well, and I wanted to inform some great news about RAINS to Japanese readers who are struggling in their business.

I’m glad that I did it. I met a wonderful CEO of RAINS (Mr. Alan Rains) and found…
