Yeah! The next door neighbor is really hitting me hard. In the little neighborhood of Koganecho, this Iranian guy and his Korean girlfriend are working hand in hand to steal my English business. It’s a real life saga. Anyway, I’m creating websites, consolidating info, posting, YouTubing, SMSing, and whatever else I can do to win this war.

Red Hibiscus

Good afternoon everybody!

Welcome back to Koganecho Action News!

This is Bill McCormack bringing you the fast and furious news from Koganecho Yokohama Japan. So, today is a very important day here in Koganecho. Something very big happened. For day after day, for month after month, I have been watering this red hibiscus (the Hawaiian Red Hibiscus). And, I thought for sure, it would never flower, but today is the big day and it finally popped! Let’s take a look. So, as you can see,  here it is behind me. And, well, unbelievable!  Now it’s in front of me!  Unbelievable! So, if you want to see Hawaii, you don’t have to fly to Hawaii. Just come here to the Tree House in Koganecho. Ahh! It’s interesting! There is a little discoloration on the edge there.  I don’t know why. And there is his friend next-door. It’s a nice bud.  It’s about to Blossom soon.  Hopefully, the wind doesn’t blow off this flower. If it does, I’ll be back with another episode of Koganecho Action News and tell you how

the wind blew off the flower. I also noticed, today,

that ahh, there is a beautiful wild hibiscus growing here along the river in front of the Tree House. So, and, this is what it looks like here.  It’s pink. These wild hibiscus grow along the river, the Ookagawa and they are quite fragile. They don’t like to be touched.  If you pick them, and put them in a vase, they will die almost instantly. So they are very delicate flower, very beautiful though inside.  So, well, that’s that.  Thank you for watching. That’s the wild hibiscus.  So now you know!  You don’t have to fly to Hawaii to appreciate the Red Hawaiian Hibiscus.  You can come here to Koganecho and take some pictures of this beautiful flower. I hope to see you soon!  This has been another episode of

Koganecho News 黄金町 21-07-2018

This is the edited version of yesterday’s post.
It has been enhanced with subtitles. The subtitles are not computer generated so they are very accurate. With these subtitles, students can get a look at my annoying sentence fillers. Sentences fillers are important to create time for thinking for the next thing to say but when overused, they can create a reduction of interest in the overall message. Too many ‘umm’s, too many ‘ah’s, too many ‘so’s. It’s like saying “えとね” before every sentence. Subtitles in English make an ordinary video come to life. Subtitles are beneficial as a learning tool and help to build comprehension. I hope you appreciate the subtitles. The video has also been shortened to keep it interesting for content consumers with short attention spans.

Koganecho News 黄金町 July 20, 2018

Today in Koganecho News 黄金町.

The infrastructure in Koganecho is not as strong as other parts of the city. 黄金町のインフラは横浜のほかの地区ほど強くない。For over a year now, much work has been done on the sewage system.1年以上にわたり、下水道システムの大きな修理が行われています。The roads have been torn up, (シャベルカーで道路を掘り返した) pipes replaced (パイプが直されました) and side walls shored up (側壁は補強された). The streets still have not yet been repaved (通りはまだ舗装されていない). Many of the telephone poles lean in strange directions (多くの電柱は変な方向に傾いています). Safety is an important factor in Japanese society (安全は日本社会にとって重要な要素です). It’s awful when people, especially children, get injured by accidents (人々、特に子供たちが事故によってけがをするときは大変です). In this video, Taishu is nearly killed when a telephone pole falls over and crashes where he was standing moments earlier (このビデオでは、大正はほぼ殺されています。電柱が倒れてクラッシュする一秒前の場所に立っていました). Luckily, Taishu has a sixth sense and, jumping back just at the right time, he narrowly escapes certain injury and seemingly thwarts death 💀 (たいしゅは第六感を持っていて、ちょうどその時に跳んでいくと、けがを避けて、死💀 を逃れた). This is the world of Koganecho. Anything can happen ! ️


Sayonara Akihiro-San!

Bonsai Mania

Today they decided to cut off the branches of the cherry trees which were hanging over the road. Dangerous for traffic? They really love to hit Koganecho hard. It’s such a shame to cut back on theses beautiful shade trees. It’s bad to practice “bonsai” on cherry trees.

Fresh from the Garden 🌶

Junko’s Co-op 枝豆

The Word Co-opA co-op is defined as a cooperative society, shop, business, or farm.The hiragana pronunciation is コープ.In English this is often mistakenly heard as “coop”.In English ‘coop’ means a cage or pen in which poultry 家禽 are kept and raised. It’s basically a chicken house.So if you say, “I bought these soybeans at the ‘coop’, it means you bought the soybeans at the chicken cage.Yo must say ‘Co’ + ‘Op’. The word has two distinct syllables 音節. Try not to run the two syllbles together when saying ‘co-op.”I bought the soybeans at the co-op.”The line between co and op is not a 延ばす線. This is the reason why there is confusion with this word.By the way, thank you so much for the soybeans 枝豆 Junko! A full container of delicious Hokkaido 枝豆 is a wonderful treat and a great summer snack. Thank you for not putting any salt on the 枝豆. They are tastier this way! Very healthy!
