This dance teaches a rocking chair step. And there’s practice for vines 
I have found a rock step is hard  for beginners to learn but once they 
master this dance  it will not be a problem. .

The song is from the past when all the cheap imports came from Japan .
If it had ‘made in Japan’ stamped on it then we were usually a little sceptical 
of it, and sometimes justifiably so, but that’s certainly not the case today.

Things have changed in Japan…..wish their taste in fish would too!!
S’pose you know that a whale is NOT a  fish. It’s a mammal, just like you 
and me. That means it’s warm blooded, has a constitution just like us and 
gives  birth to babies in the same painful way that we do.  I heard a Japanese
business man saying that whales are just large pilchards…...NOT TRUE!
Don’t know what YOU think about it all, but I wonder what that same man
would say if someone wanted to eat him and his family because they 
considered them to be just big snakes …..or something like that!

Food for thought???  Well, don’t think TOO hard about it all because you might realise that little calves and baby lambs AND their parents are also mammals.. And then you might start to wonder what was so wrong with cannibalism!!!
See you on the floor sometime………. Jan
