What is the ruling on using the term Biwa today. Should it only be used on pearls that originally were harvested in the Biwa lake? Is it ethical to call pearls that come from the same mollusks that once produced pearls from the Biwa lake even though they are no longer harvested in that lake?
well I grew up in that area and my family still has the home, but I don't live there anymore. Now Ladysmith is a pretty little town, I've been through many many times.
You live just outside Bouchart Gardens? wow ... my family lives on the Island, Ladysmith.
I miss Canada, and I miss my friends there!
Hi, Kevin. Are you from Victoria? I went to Victoria last year in a summer program. The butchants gardens are so beautiful!

Oh! I see! You spend a lot of time in B.C.--Victoria. No wonder the the fish, then. I'm just below the border in Bellingham. I fish a bit in the rivers N. of the border. Do you fly fish?
Hi Kevin, I can't quite make out what you are pointing at us in the avatar--is it a fish???
